Cuomo has gone mad - no madder. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he wants to shine a light on the disciplinary history of cops. He said he would immediately sign into law any measures to reform a state regulation that prohibits the disclosure of prior disciplinary actions against a police officer. But any such measure will meet with strong resistance from the city’s cops.
“It is inconceivable that Governor Cuomo would want to arm those extremists with confidential police personnel records, so that they bring their weapons to our front doors,” PBA President Patrick Lynch said. “We cannot protect New York if politicians won’t even provide the bare minimum protections for us and our families.” The governor was asked about the regulation, called 50a, after a video showed a police officer throwing a demonstrator to the ground during protests in Brooklyn Friday night.
Cuomo, foolishly speaking Saturday at a press briefing, said if the state Legislature convened “by Zoom” and drafted the bill “I would sign it today.”
