NYC Police in the Pockets of Chase?

with 4 comments

We’ve built a country where the presidency must be paid for at excessive amounts, where lobbyists are simply part of the political fabric. Any sense of democracy is long gone. It is so explicit that Chase Bank basically announces that the NYC police will be working for them: Announcement of 4.6 Million Dollar donation to enhance security.

JPMorgan Chase recently donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the New York City Police Foundation. The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple. The money will pay for 1,000 new patrol car laptops, as well as security monitoring software in the NYPD’s main data center.
New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing “profound gratitude” for the company’s donation.
“These officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe,” Dimon said. “We’re incredibly proud to help them build this program and let them know how much we value their hard work.”
