Bratton Urges Boost in Penalties For Resisting Arrest

February 06, 2015  | 

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton on Wednesday urged state lawmakers to boost the punishment for resisting arrest and make it a crime to reveal personal information about cops as a means of intimidation, reports the New York Post.

Bratton said that "too many people still resist arrest" because the offense rarely gets prosecuted, and he called for it to be upgraded from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Bratton also proposed a law barring people from disclosing details about officers' private lives "for no legitimate purpose" and "as a threatening or harassing tactic."

During his testimony at a hearing in lower Manhattan, Bratton also rejected a plan by several state senators to mandate bulletproof glass in all police cars because of cost and concern about officers being able to break the glass to get out of their cars. A better idea, Bratton said, would be to install ballistic panels in the doors.
