For starters, one thing that the article etiher failed to mention or did not have the information is whether or not they just threw a ball back and forth for a few minutes or were spending considerable time doing so. I think that point is actually crucial in making a determination as to whether or not it was improper. For the sake of this discussion, let’s say the officers were doing this for a few minutes.
So I took off to a quiet place to read the paper this morning. Not my usual choice, NY Daily News, but nonetheless a glance at the daily happenings. The one article that stood out to me was the one about the two NYPD cops getting reprimanded for tossing a ball with some neighborhood kids in the Bronx.
