[video] NYC Cops Cops Reveal Their Department Have Arrest Quotas Target Black Latino Gays

This went right under the radar.

An NYPD lieutenant is the latest active-duty cop to say that the department still uses arrest and summons quotas, despite a 2010 state ban on the practice and a denial from the city’s top cop.
The lieutenant, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, told the I-Team that the 10 active-duty cops in a federal class-action lawsuit against the NYPD who came forward this week “were telling the truth” about the illegal practice.

“There is still a quota system within the NYPD,” the lieutenant said.

The lieutenant, who is not part of the class-action suit, said cops are under constant pressure to meet quota numbers and that officers who don’t hit numbers are referred to as “zeros.”

“You know, every time I get called in the captain’s office, it’s ‘one of your cops is a zero,’” the lieutenant said.

In an interview with the I-Team that aired Thursday, the 10 officers in the suit said that the NYPD still pursues quotas and punishes officers who don’t hit numerical goals. The NYPD has repeatedly denied that quotas exist but that the department expects officers “to do their jobs.”
