Roy Bercaw speaks about the Police Review Board Ordinance. The hearing was held on April 7, 2005 at the Cambridge MA City Council Chambers before the Ordinance Committee. Bercaw noted the existing ordinance passed 20 years ago was not being enforced. The hearing was about a City Manager sponsored ordinance. It is the City Council's power to pass ordinances not the City Manager. Bercaw told about police abuses elsewhere and in Cambridge. He mentioned Philip Zimbardo's experiment on power over others. The NYPD recognizes that police need constant scrutiny.
