This week, as reported from the New York Times, New York City Police officers made inappropriate, insulting, and racist remarks regarding their disdain for securing the West Indian American Parade. I have called on New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to remove and reassign any officers from the precincts of central Brooklyn involved in this incident. There is no doubt that this is a terrible representation of what the New York Police Department (NYPD). With hateful remarks like these representing the sentiment among some of our police officers, I can understand how many in the public feel unsafe. It is time for the NYPD to make it a top priority to restore the integrity of the NYPD.
