Dear Editor,

City Council members and community activists condemned the NYPD's Criminal Group Database at a June 13th hearing. These critics endanger our safety.

Cops need this data to track and target people who commit violent crimes or are likely to do so. The database identifies 17,500 active gang members and 2,700 inactive members who remain close to gangs.

Cops use this high-tech tool for precision policing that takes dangerous thugs off the streets.

Civil Liberties lunatics complain that street gang members listed in the database face higher bail limits and stronger charges. That's how it should be.

Social justice warriors want robbery victims to read Miranda rights to muggers. They support social injustice instead of law and order.
