The Issue: The Post’s report that 16 officers saved their jobs after NYPD judges discovered them responsible of crimes.

I used to be dismayed that you simply determined to place “officers discovered responsible of crimes hold jobs” as a Post particular report, splashed all around the entrance web page (“Blue shield,” Nov. 25).

I’m pro-police and to offer your readers the impression that cops are corrupt provides pointless ammunition to the defund-the-police lunatics.

Teachers who’re incompetent are rewarded by being positioned within the “rubber room” till instances are resolved. There isn’t any finish to the corruption and incompetence that’s being rewarded by permitting folks to maintain their jobs.

Kudos to The Post for uncovering this distressing report. One can solely guess what number of extra incidents dedicated by law-enforcement personnel stay underneath wraps.

I assist the police and really feel that, particularly at the moment, they’ve a thankless job. However, think about the variety of instances these perpetrators might have investigated and even arrested folks for crimes they themselves have been discovered responsible of.

It’s a tragic commentary on the primary line of protection society has to keep away from full anarchy.

While I’m not condoning the habits, this text acknowledged that the NYPD makes up 52% of metropolis staff arrested in comparison with 14% FDNY and 12% Corrections employees.

You failed to say that the NYPD has 55,000 uniformed and non-uniformed members, in comparison with about 17,000 within the FDNY and seven,500 in Corrections. That ought to have been acknowledged.

I’ve no downside in anyway with permitting cops who break the regulation to stay on the job.

The Post routinely studies on violent criminals who’ve racked up 20 or 30 prior convictions however someway stay free to slash and rape once more. Police stay on their job regardless of their unhealthy acts? Tell somebody who cares.

The Issue: Criticism of Mayor Adams for neglecting NYCHA residents whereas serving to migrants within the metropolis.

I share New York City Housing Authority President Daniel Barber’s disgust with Mayor Adams’ choice to assist migrants from Texas whereas ignoring NYCHA residents (“What about fixing NYCHA!” Nov. 24).

The disparity of taxpayer {dollars} being allotted to the migrants and NYCHA tenants is fallacious — however I’ve no downside with my tax {dollars} being directed to assist each teams.

The two folks liable for growing the struggling of NYCHA tenants and the migrants are former Mayor Bill de Blasio and Mayor Adams.

De Blasio ignored the fundamental wants of NYCHA tenants throughout his complete tenure as mayor.

Meanwhile, tax {dollars} go to pay longtime Adams pal Lisa White, surprisingly employed for the lofty place of deputy commissioner of worker relations on the NYPD.

The downside of funds being diverted isn’t unique to New York: It’s in nearly each main metropolis, and it’s heartbreaking when low-income residents, particularly African-Americans, are pushed to the aspect or ignored for unlawful immigrants.

What is being skilled is the brand new drive by metropolis, state and federal companies to marginalize low-income residents to make room for others.

It’s like the sport of musical chairs, as chairs are eliminated to the purpose the place there aren’t sufficient for the members.

There isn’t sufficient cash on the native degree to assist everybody in want, so any person will likely be overlooked. Based on this text, it seems that African Americans are the chosen group.
