In this chapter I discuss why police have contributed little to public discussions about the state of public security in the city and examine an effort to raise debate with an op-ed that was published in the New York Times. I examine what happened as a result of this op-ed, both in terms of my own research and well as how the op-ed was received more widely by the media, politicians, and police. This includes a discussion of some efforts to reform the practice of resisting arrest followed by death and some unintentional consequences.
