Report Claims a Third of FOIA Requests To the NYPD Go Unanswered 65

from the no-information dept.
Daniel_Stuckey writes "Reporters Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman, who shared a Pulitzer last year as part of the Associated Press team covering the NYPD's surveillance activity, have summed it up perfectly: The NYPD doesn't answer document requests. "For the most part, they don't respond," Apuzzo told the Huffington Post. 'Even the NSA responds.' It's not just reporters who've noticed. New York City Public Advocate and mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio gave the police department a failing grade in an April report based on its dismal response rate to Freedom of Information requests. By de Blasio's analysis, nearly a third of requests submitted to NYPD go unanswered."

    LAPD and NYPD are locked in an epic struggle to see which department can be a bigger waste of taxpayer money.

    On one hand I see little point in even sending FOIA requests to the NYPD.
    What ever your question is, take the worst possible answer you can think of, add in murder and rape and a few other crimes, and you have your correct answer.

    Q) Is it official NYPD policy to shoot black people in the back?
    A) Of course, but then we rape them after murdering them.

    Q) Is it official NYPD policy to tazer children until they suffocate as a competition support with official scoring system?
    A) Of course, but then we rape them after murdering them. (1 point for murder, 2 points for rape, 3 points if no one catches it on a cell camera)

    See how easy it is? And true to my word, the truthful answers are worse than the ones above!

    Until it is either illegal for "shoot first, as questions maybe later, probably never" policy - OR - it's legal for non-cops to use the same policy when being approached by a police officer, then anything they say that doesn't involve admitting rape and murder is an out-right lie anyway.

    Not to mention you can't slander a reputation when that reputation is already to murder and rape people.
    If they didn't want that image, I'd imagine they would put a tiny bit more effort into not murdering and raping people. Seems perfectly legit to me.
