For the second week in a row, the New York Police Department has dramatically cut back on arrests. This past week, less than half as many people were arrested and more than 90 percent fewer summonses were issued than during the same time last year. The drop began immediately after two officers were murdered in their patrol car in Brooklyn on December 20. Police Commissioner Bill Braton said Monday at a press conference that he won't call the lower arrest rate a “slowdown” by cops until he investigates further.
