Here's a bit of good news, the New York City Law Department has decided not to defend the infamous Anthony Bologna in an upcoming civil suit. I think it's a great decision, the city should not be wasting any money defending the indefensible actions of this hothead, authoritarian asshole. Of course, not everybody agrees with this stance- for instance, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly had this to say:
"I think it could have a chilling effect on police officers taking action. It's a discretionary decision by the Corporation Counsel and I'm concerned about an adverse effect on officer's willingness to engage."
He thinks it would have a chilling effect? I sure hope it would, hotheads need to be chilled. Also, a willingness to engage should not include a willingness to assault peaceful demonstrators... this is an engagement that should not be kept. We need there to be an adverse effect on bullshit like that.
