Lovin' Us Some NYPD

Lovin' Us Some NYPD

Epic fail by the NYPD, who ingenuously invited Twitter users to post presumably friendly photos of themselves interacting with police officers tagged #myNYPD, and instead got bombarded by over 10,000 tweets an hour showing New York's Finest punching, beating, smashing, strangling, bloodying and otherwise brutalizing them - a response that quickly sparked similar, even international hashtags. What we've got here is failure to communicate.

“The NYPD is creating new ways to communicate effectively with the community. Twitter provides an open forum for an uncensored exchange and this is an open dialogue good for our city.”
