This is the thanks they get? Our teachers and our librarians, civil engineers and school crossing guards, trash collectors and public safety protectors, public prosecutors and public defenders, snowplow drivers, accountants, file clerks, telephone operators, translators, healthcare workers, those who care for our sick and elderly and our forgotten.

Ripped from the headlines, the news seems to suggest that rank and file democrats are following their standard bearer’s ‘style’ when it comes to solving some of the more pressing and complex problems that we face together as a nation. Its good to know that these followers have appreciated the efforts made by the Obama administration to “set the tone” as we sally forth together to solve these troubling and significant criminal and cultural problems.

Adrian Schoolcraft is the whistleblowing police officer at the center of one of the more bizarre of the NYPD’s ongoing scandals.
Schoolcraft worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, and he was not a happy camper as a cop. A loner, he began to secretly tape recording precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered patrol cops like himself to make it difficult for victims of crimes to make formal complaints. Equally disturbing, cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was.
Schoolcraft’s tape recordings might well have been ignored or forgotten, had not the police department then done something that was indeed shocking.
