This is blatantly illegal, and there is a whole chain of command that was behind this.
And still de Blasio is shilling for the NYPD, even though he was elected on promises of reforming that department, and even though he cannot run again for mayor because of term limits.
I guess that cringing becomes becomes second nature with enough practice:
Among the hundreds of protesters arrested over the four days of demonstrations in New York City over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, only one was highlighted by name by a police union known for its hostility toward Mayor Bill de Blasio.This a deeply corrupt, and deeply corrupting, action made by principals in the Sergeants Benevolent Association, and it needs to be treated as the crime (felony) that it is.
The name of that protester? Chiara de Blasio, the mayor’s daughter.
The union, the Sergeants Benevolent Association, used Twitter to post a police report documenting the arrest on Saturday night of Ms. de Blasio, 25.
The Police Department does not normally release internal police reports, and Ms. de Blasio’s contained personal details, including her height, weight, address, date of birth and driver’s license information.
The post was removed for violation of Twitter rules, and the union’s account was suspended Monday morning.
“The account is temporarily locked for violating our private information policy,” a Twitter spokesman confirmed.
Citing safety concerns, Twitter prohibits users from posting other people’s “private information” without their consent, a practice known as “doxxing.”
This is an active conspiracy against civilian oversight of the police force, so it is not just a matter of petty corruption, it is an act reminiscent of a secret police.
