New York City, New York – Police Commissioner Bill Bratton of the NYPD recently proposed a plan that would grant amnesty for over 1 million people with open warrants for low-level offenses, inadvertently revealing that 1 in 7 New Yorkers have warrants for their arrest.
According to The United States Census Bureau the population of New York City is 8.406 million. The number of people who currently have open arrest warrants is 1.2 million. That means that 1 in 8 people in the city is currently under the threat of imprisonment for things like “drinking in public” or “disorderly conduct.”
These statistics call attention to one of the primary root causes of police brutality, and that is the over-criminalization of victimless crimes, and the need for constant collection of revenue. If the crimes are not serious enough that an amnesty policy is being suggested, and if there is no victim to complain about it, then these laws should not even exist to begin with.
For this reason, many politicians in New York are hesitant to approve such a measure, as it would undermine their authority and prove that fines and legal penalties for small infractions are neither practical nor moral.
Speaking with CBS News, Council Public Safety Chair Vanessa Gibson said that “I think it would be a very delicate conversation where we want to find the right balance. We also want all New Yorkers to respect the laws we have on the books because laws are meant to be implemented. They’re meant to be enforced.”
It is also important to point out that the only reason that a measure like this has any chances of passing is because the police department and local legislators have political motivations to lower the crime rate statistics.
