4. This is part of a civil suit designed to force NYPD to reform its practices.

Officer Serrano helped clarify how the program is racist in intent, as well as implementations.

And even though New York decriminalized pot possession in the 1970s, NYPD also likes to illegally reach into people's pockets or belongings or intimidate them into pulling out their baggies and then arrest them for the crime of possession "in public view" instead of writing them a ticket as the decrim law mandates.

A study released last week said NYPD had spent a million hours on pot arrests in the past decade.

This is just a small part of the problems with NYPD. They appear immune to effective oversight.
