    Apparently the NYPD simply can't accept that cops doing their job in public are fair game for amateurs with cameras to record them arresting others, doing traffic stops, etc. Many innocent people have been charged with B.S. vague charges like "disorderly conduct" for taking pics of police.

    The only prosecution of corrupt cops I've ever heard of over these incidents is the one where a NYC cop wrote a completely fabricated story about being attacked by a cameraman. The incident happened in front of a business that had multiple security cameras recording the whole things. The lying SOB dirty cop attacked the camera-holding guy just for recording the arrest of somebody else.

    That bad cop, Jonathan Munoz, is being prosecuted by the DA's office for making a false report of a crime.

    Can the rest of the country take back New York and demand that the Empire State, and NYC in particular, actually follow the constitution and the Bill of Rights? If NY doesn't want to follow the constitution, maybe it's time to revoke its status as a state, fire its two senators, send all its Congress-critters to the unemployment line, and it can be some kind of quasi-independent federal territory, like a giant penal colony or military base, where the Constitution doesn't really apply.

    Mrs. E: I'm not sure what the point is of that map you showed above.
    What are the red and blue areas supposed to mean?
    If it's to delineate ultra-leftist areas from the rest of the state (and upstate NY generally has more midwestern values, closer to Ohio and Indiana than you might think at first), don't forget to draw that blue line north enough to get Albany. That's the roach motel headquarters of socialist thinking.

    Split the state into left vs. right. Maybe Albany could be a blue island.
