NEW YORK, NY – Are the New York boys in blue turning to the silver screen for some retraining, specifically scenes from a Patrick Swayze movie?
We doubt that it’s dancing. However, according to the New York post, NYPD hopes their officers will learn one move that will teach officers how to behave when dealing with the public.
An anonymous police source claims the officers were required to watch scenes from the 1989 film “Road House” to learn to be nice.
Police commissioner Bill Bratton doesn’t think the New York Post’s story is too nice. He calls a series of stories published by the post related to the retraining, “incredible misinformation.”
NYPD does have retraining programs, but who knows if watching movies is part of the curriculum? If it will keep another choke hold death from happening again, we’re up for any and all suggestions.
