As Twitchy reported earlier this week, a group called Disarm NYPD has expressed its desire to drive the police out of neighborhoods entirely and replace them with “community conflict resolution bodies.”

That group and several other anti-police organizations gathered at 1 Police Plaza in New York Friday evening for a #NoNewNYPD rally to voice their opposition to a plan to hire 1,000 police officers and to demand the firing of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton. Sponsors of the rally and march ranged from the Coalition to End Broken Windows, Parents Against Police Brutality, the ANSWER Coalition and Mothers Cry for Justice to Brothers/Sisters In The Struggle, Stop The Urban Youth Violence and the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee.

Free public transit? Why not?
