9. Meh. None of the police can be disciplined.

 

They are generally free to criticize the mayor, blame Sharpton, etc.

There were a number of threads yesterday discussing the issue. Simply, as unionized public employees with a collective bargaining agreement, engaging in collective employment activities, and most doing so while off-duty. they are effectively immune from discipline, no less termination, by various constitutional, statutory and contractual provisions. For reference, these are the same laws and regulations and similar contracts that protect more liberal union members like teachers when they criticize public figures and engage in political activity (try to remember back to the Giuliani administration and his relationship with the teachers union).
