1 in 20: NYPD Officer Says He Has Arrest, Ticket Quota

The arrest and ticket quota is supposed to be an urban myth, but one NYPD officer told ABCNews that it is anything but. He works in the Bronx and says he's "not going to keep arresting innocent people."

"Police Officers like others who receive compensation are provided productivity goals and they are expected to work."

So, that means they are OBLIGATED to create criminals.

What did Ayn Rand say? Oh yes:
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws."

Good on this NYC "Peace Officer" for speaking up.
