DeBlasio, Bratton and the Ongoing Criminalization of Youth in New York City

The Neoliberal Giuliani

Today, standing in front of news-cameras and press, newly elect mayor of 
New York City, Bill de Blasio responds to the grievances of stop and 
frisk critics and progressive non-profits groups by appointing 
‘America’s Top Cop,’ William Bratton as chief commissioner of the New 
York City Police Department. This is a slap in the face for many 
liberals across the city as their dreams of a progressive mayor are 
quickly dashed. Yet, for the few community activists that have not sold 
their hopes to city electoral politics, the appointment of Bratton 
signals the state response to dissent and a reaffirmation of the role of 
police in the neoliberal era with new points of interest, namely the 
criminalization of youth across New York City.
