New York City - In an effort to bring attention to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s failed quality-of-life policies and the increased risk to the public, the NYC police union has undertaken a photo initiative aimed at “leveling the playing field.”

NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1DBL4PJ) reports that via an email blitz to its members on Monday, the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) is urging cops and their families to take pictures of quality-of-life scofflaws throughout the city and send them in, after which they’ll be posted to the SBA’s Flicker account.

SBA President Ed Mullins said that with the increasing frequency with which cops are now being recorded, it is only fair that NYC policy makers be held to the same standard.

“We, the ‘Good Guys,’ are sworn to protect our citizens,” Mullins said. “Shouldn’t our public officials be held to the same standard?”

Of course while currently policy prevents cops from taking pictures of the public while on duty, the SBA is encouraging cops’ friends, families and the public at large to snap photos of vagrants and drug dealers and panhandlers and submit them to its new initiative at Peek-a-Boo, We See You! peekaboo@sbanyc.org.

Whenever the police and the mayor are not on the same page, the average citizen suffers.

Despite your headline, it's NOT the "NYPD" but rather a group of police officers. Note that they've decided that their agenda is more important than respecting the privacy of "down and out" NYC residents.
I guess they've never gone hungry, or had a relative with mental illness sleeping in the street.

while I agree that this wasn't very nice on the part of the NYPD to do this, I was thinking just this last week and again this morning that it seems to me that there are more homeless sleeping on the benches of Ocean Parkway now than I have ever seen before. There were 5 that I counted on one side on a 1 1/2 block length alone between Cortelyou Rd and 18th Ave. Crime feels like it's gone way up, no matter what the mayor says. My mother,not so jokingly, said, as the paper was delivered, so who was killed today. I hate to say it, but stop and frisk worked!! it should be brought back.

Please don't try to make this a two way fight where both sides are too blame. We all know that DeBlassio's progressive nonsense is to blame. Yes its true that when the police are not on the smae side as the mayor its a problem. But its a one sided fight.

No one living in NYC today needs any reminder as to how the quality of life in this city has gone down since Wilhelm DeBlasio took office. At this point I am just wondering what additional horrors we all have to suffer through before Cuomo can remove him from office and put in a State Control Board until the next election.

Dear Sergeants.

I'm writing this after reading comments 1-4. Please realize that the typical person on this comment board is among the most law-abiding, peaceful, non-violent, well-behaved population in the city. You probably already knew that. In view of that, please re-read comments 1-4 and consider: Do you see the problem you have on your hands? Do you see how out of line your behaviour is? Do you see how out of touch you are?

Speaking for myself, about myself: I'm an extreme law-abiding pro-law-and-order conservative - and you guys, your behaviour, antics, abuses and coverups, make me sick to my stomach. I should be among your strongest suppportes, as should be commenters 1-4.

You know, asi I'm writing this, I'm thinking, maybe I shouldn't even be writing to you. Maybe this should be an issue to address to the NYPD chaplains. Maybe its their job to try and keep you guys human.

This is not about the mayor. The police union has not supported any mayor in memory. Look at the Wikipedia entry for "Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York." They have complained about every mayor's policies. (Also note they policemen have been without a contract for years. The union is just not very good.)
