My wife told me about this yesterday and I was laughing out loud before she could tell me that is was immediately failed to have the desired response.
How ridiculous are they: they abuse, stomp mudholes, violate the 2nd and 4th amendment on a regular basis, act like sociopaths while rarely being held accountable and now they requested the general public to post friendly “selfies?” What a bunch of stoopid shitheads these copfuks are…
Well, the #MyNYPD hashtag sure backfired quickly

For another case study in the perils of using Twitter for branding, look no further than the #myNYPD hashtag that is now trending for all the wrong reasons in the New York City area.
What started out as an attempt to solicit pent-up good feelings among the New York Police Department’s constituents is turning out to be a troll-fest of epic proportions.
One by one, hundreds of tweets with photos of what the tweeters suggest is police brutality or misbehavior are being sent out with the hashtag #MyNYPD. No good can come from this, but as US Airways and others have learned recently, its hard to take back a tweet.
