Who are those other 36%?

Most of the NYC police live in Lon Gisland or Joisey and drive in. And there is still an overt romanticism of the Glory Days when a bunch of Irish cops would go into a tenement and people would "fall down the stairs."

It's much better--though not where it was under Dinkins--but just a glance at the demographics of the force shows what most of us know: it's not necessarily good to be white in NYC, but it's better than the alternatives.
