Samenvatting

In 2010, NYPD officer Adrian Schoolcraft released secretly recorded audio tapes exposing widespread corruption in the force. In The NYPD Tapes, the reporter who first broke the story, reveals the abuses that continue today - warrantless surveillance, systemic harassment and underreporting of serious crimes like rape and murder.

Recensie(s)

Adrian Schoolcraft joined the NYPD for old-fashioned reasons, to have a good job while protecting the people. Instead, he ran up against police bosses who cared more about low crime statistics than public safety. That collision, as devastatingly described by Graham Rayman, is a tale of crime prevention turned upside down in the Bloomberg era. Rayman has invented a new genre: the police misprocedural. --Tom Robbins Not only has Graham Rayman told the incredible story of Adrian Schoolcraft, whose forced hospitalizaiton by the NYPD in a mental ward is reminiscent of the Sovet Union's KGB, but Rayman puts that sad and frightening incident into a larger context: how the NYPD systemically downgrades crimes to make New York City appear to be safer than it actually is. --Leonard Levitt, author of NYPD Confidential and Conviction Graham Rayman's a great reporter and Adrian Schoolcraft's story was one of the most gripping things we've ever put on This American Life. The NYPD Tapes tells more of what happened, and reveals the full extent that officials were willing to go in their cover-up. --Ira Glass, host of public radio's This American Life
