New York – The NYPD Tapes: The Village Voice’s Series on Adrian Schoolcraft by Graham Rayman – Village Voice.

In 2010, Village Voice reporter Graham Rayman obtained digital audio recordings from Police Officer Adrian Schoolcraft, an eight-year veteran of the NYPD. These tapes revealed the inner-workings of Bed-Stuy’s 81st Precinct, a place where bosses threatened street cops if they didn’t make their quotas of arrests and stop-and-frisks and told them not to take certain robbery reports in order to manipulate crime statistics.

Astoundingly, these tapes were just the beginning.
