The NYPD Tapes Confirmed: The report police hid for nearly two years that corroborates a Voice investigation — and vindicates a whistle-blower the NYPD tried to destroy.

While working out of the 81st precinct in Brooklyn, Adrian Schoolcraft became aware of a pattern of crime victims getting caught up in bureaucratic hurdles that seemed to have purposely been set up to make it difficult to report serious crimes. Schoolcraft reported a number of these incidents to investigators:

In October 2009, Schoolcraft met with NYPD investigators for three hours and detailed more than a dozen cases of crime reports being manipulated in the district. Three weeks after that meeting-which was supposed to have been kept secret from Schoolcraft's superiors-his precinct commander and a deputy chief ordered Schoolcraft to be dragged from his apartment and forced into the Jamaica Hospital psychiatric ward for six days.

Now go read the rest, it's worth it, and no doubt better than the "movie of the week" version that I highly anticipate turning up.
