Cop Out

Disturbing story in the New York Post tomorrow regarding the closing of the NYPD's Queens overnight Subway unit.

Quote:

An NYPD unit that patrols the borough's trains at night is on the verge of closing, the Post has learned - a move critics fear will make Queens subway travel still more dangerous.

"Of course they say that it'll be the same manpower that way, but that's b.s.," one police source told the Post. "It's the equivalent of closing a station house."

"That's stupid, we need safety in the subways," said outraged Trisha Mondal, 18.

"I always feel more comfortable when police are around," the Jamaica resident said at the Forest Hills-71st Avenue station.
