On Thursday, December 5, 2013, New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio appointed William Bratton to lead the New York Police Department. Bratton has a troubling record of supporting the types of practices that have caused so much concern among New Yorkers, and Mayor-elect de Blasio has made a campaign promise to reform the NYPD because of these very issues. While chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, Bratton promoted stop and frisk practices and defended a widespread data gathering and mapping project targeting innocent American Muslims in Los Angeles, which was defeated only after public outcry. Provided Bratton's association with the troubled mapping program of American Muslims in Los Angeles, there is serious concern about the selection of William Bratton to be the next commissioner of the New York Police Department.
