      The NYPD has a long shameful history of entrapment that continues to this day and spans many situations. Their “lucky bag” operation is another example. They deliberately leave behind something valuable on a park bench or other public place and then watch. When a random person comes along and picks up whatever it is–they arrest them for theft. It’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between the police and the mafia at times.

      @barkomatic: Well this is what happens when two concurrent mayors transform the local PD into their own personal SS.

      The problem for the police is that these guys are no longer afraid of being labeled “Gay”.

      It was much easier back in the day when people would pay the fine to keep it quiet that they were in a gay bar or a shop like that. Now, they are trying the same tactics on people who are out and it is backfiring.

      Hope the majority of the $450,000 and the other payouts went to the victim(s) instead of the lawyers.

      Entrapment is bad stuff. Good it blew up in the face of the PD. The council members should be thanked for their efforts to resolve the issue.

      But will it happen again?
