NYPD won’t arrest students for low-level offenses in schools

No actions for consequences under demorat utopia.

From NY Post: Police will stop arresting or summonsing Big Apple students “whenever possible” for a host of crimes — such as boozing, smoking pot and vandalism — in city schools, as part of a sweeping change to NYPD policy set to be announced Thursday, according to a report.

Rowdy pupils will also skate on spitting, harassment, trespassing and other “low-level offenses” as long as school administrators can “safely” handle the incidents, according to a copy of the proposal obtained by Chalkbeat.

“The welfare of these students should be the city’s top priority,” said Maria Henderson, a spokeswoman for City Council Education Committee Chair Mark Treyger. “We should be focused on supporting them and not punitive disciplinary measures.”

The new policy is part of a larger shift by the de Blasio administration toward looking the other way when students act out.

Hizzoner’s Department of Education issued a directive in 2018 to give students “warning cards” — rather than tickets or handcuffs — for smoking pot in schools.

That led to a precipitous decline in school marijuana summonses — but didn’t stem the tide of drug use at schools such as Forest Hills High School, where principal Ben Sherman was just ousted for letting drug-use run rampant there.

City Hall did not immediately provide a comment.

That’s tantamount to sending out a signal to students to do even more boozing, pot smoking and vandalism.

Even more than that, when these same “misbehavin” individuals get out into the real world . . . who is going to cut them the same latitude of slack? They will be among those who are housed at the expense of the tax payers.

My parents divorced when I was in the eighth grade. My dad had custody of me so we ended up in an apartment for a year while our house and all that got settled. I had to go to this “inner-city” school. What an eye-opener that was! We had sixteen and seventeen year-olds in the eighth grade. All they did was harass the teachers and and distract everyone else. Kicking them out was what they wanted. The school wanted them there because they got so much a head for them. One had to strategize how to move between classes and… Read more »

No big deal that will be like a slap on the hand, and they’ll go on to bigger and worse things and if they make it to graduation, they’ll be graduated with an “A” and eventually a pass to the slammer. And that is a very good thing because while in there they have the RIGHT TO VOTE. I pity people left behind when I’m cremated.

“I pity people left behind when I’m cremated.”

So true. 🙁

That will just make the sewer known as public school into a worse shithole. I feel bad for the kids trying to actually get an education that are stuck in that system.

Warning cards. They can’t be serious. That’ll strike fear into the hearts of the little miscreants. They’ll probably collect the whole set and swap them with their friends

Very bad decision by Deblasio. This does not surprise me. When I taught in NYC high schools, there was, effectively, no punishment, just suspensions.
The sooner this jerk is out of public life, the better.

This guy couldn’t be this big a fool, could he? His goal, like his cohorts, is to stand Western Civilization on its head. How can anybody vote for an idiot like him?

Do these clowns think they are just going to magically become “mature” at eighteen? No respect for society or institutions at all.

May be all right,…as long as the teachers are allowed to backhand the miscreants across the room as needed, or what ever it takes, with out fear of arrest.

Here in CA, they’ve been pushing this same “theory” for several years. I am esp. bowled over by the statement, “The welfare of these students should be our top priority.” Excuse my cynicism after near 28 years teaching in public schools but—thinking that we are benefiting their welfare in the long run (like—-for REAL LIFE situations and consequences) by allowing them to trample the rights of others to the public education that they are disrupting, spitting on, vandalizing, ruining, threatening every day ISN’T doing them a BIG favor, it’s doing them a great disservice on perhaps their LAST stop before… Read more »

Not defending this policy in the least, but outside of school around here, the cops will not respond or show up if someone breaks into your house, hits you car and takes off (hit and run apparently only is illegal if they kill someone ’round here) or vandalizes your place. A cop even admitted it. OH, unless you are a prior county commissioner and someone steals your property, THEN they’ll show up, dust for prints and catch whoever stole your quad even if they took it out of state.
Unless you have “connections”, it’s not a “crime”.
