ProPublica posts NYPD records, bypassing judge’s blockade 3

A sign that a state is losing its legitimacy is when judicial orders are openly defied, or when there are violent attacks on the judiciary. There was an assassination attempt on a federal judge in New Jersey last week, and now the alternative media is simply saying to hell with the judge’s order in the case of the NYPD records.

ProPublica posted the database Sunday, explaining in a note to readers that it isn’t obligated to comply with Judge Katherine Polk Failla’s temporary restraining order because it is not a party to a union lawsuit challenging the release of such records.

Deputy Managing Editor Eric Umansky said ProPublica requested the information from the city’s police watchdog agency, the Civilian Complaint Review Board, soon after last month’s repeal of state law that for decades had prevented the disclosure of disciplinary records.

Unions representing police officers and other public safety workers sued the city on July 15 to block Mayor Bill de Blasio from making good on a pledge to start posting misconduct complaints on a government website. The unions argue that allowing the public to see unproven or false complaints could sully officers’ reputations and compromise their safety.

  1. “ProPublica posted the database Sunday, explaining in a note to readers that it isn’t obligated to comply with Judge Katherine Polk Failla’s temporary restraining order because it is not a party to a union lawsuit challenging the release of such records.”

    That’s actually a very logical position to take.

  2. When living in a country that from it’s inception is and has always been and had an increasingly 100% Corrupt NWO-Cabal-Controlled Inverted-Totalitarian Police-State Government, masquerading as some form of a capitalistic-free-democratic-system that’s never existed, all police all military personnel, all politicians, government elected or appointed officials, all judges, prosecutors, etc., etc. etc., are enrmies to all the people and should be covertly and primarily hunted down using guerilla warfare tactics and killed slowly.

    • “and killed slowly.”

      Yes, I realize that would have its attractions. But “faster” works for me, too.
