Just to be clear, the NYPD will not be paying for anything, taxpayers will be paying for it and the NYPD will get a slap on the wrist. - ChrisFor almost 30 years — from 1983 to 2012 — the New York Police Department went about arresting people under laws that state and federal courts had long declared unconstitutional, cuffing and booking almost 22,000 people.
