I thought they were calling with some “your refrigerator is running” pranks. These are pretty harsh to be considered “prank calls”

The jobs culture has always been toxic, but in the past few years it’s gotten so much worse. This nonsense isn’t the slightest bit surprising after seeing the way cops treat each other. I don’t know if it’s a generational thing or what, but It feels as though the sour grapes have taken over. They get what they deserve, no cop should be angry with whatever these clowns get.

I'm not surprised. Every time you put your info into a 311 complaint, it's more likely they'll show up than if you were anonymous but you also run the risk of cops grabbing your info and harassing you. NYPD is a well paid crime organization funded by tax payers.

Notice the shitty, pathetic excuse for journalism there? They don't say they were police that were parking like that until they quote the victim's statement. Early on they just say the cars belong to "city workers"
