Matt Taibbi: New York Police Only “Arresting People When They Have To”?

The New York City Police Department work stoppage is “surreal” and a clear attempt to strangle the city’s budget and place pressure on Mayor Bill de Blasio, according to Rolling Stone columnist Matt Taibbi.

Ben Swann talks with Taibbi about the fact that “arresting people when they have to” is what all police should be doing. Taibbi explains how the police force’s attempt to punish De Blasio for criticizing the department is merely political, despite what they may say.
