Last night police unions and the mayor had a kiss-and-makeup chat. De Blasio remains defiant and unapologetic. So the cops are slow-rolling now.
Some people say police use too much muscle. In 2013 there were 660,000 arrests. Two arrests are causing all the hand-wringing.
SWAT teams wear converted military helmets, bullet proof vests, and ferocious firearms to subdue the extra bad guys. But why is that a problem? Don't we want perps cuffed and the police protected?
BulletSafe wants to replace military helmets with ballistic baseball caps. The caps are lighter, cooler, and look less intimidating. The company's crowd-funding the idea - so here's your chance to intervene in the battle between police image and police protection, folks.
