The guy who thought the NYPD could be reformed

Interesting obit of David Durk, who with Frank Serpico triggered an investigation of endemic and widespread corruption in the NYPD in the ’60s and ’70s. However, as the obituary makes clear, the reform efforts barely scratched the surface and today we still see a militaristic police department that’s out of control. Lack of transparency and lack of effective oversight prevent any meaningful reform. Wrongdoers walk free, protected by omerta.
