NYPD still paranoid from 9/11

They are so fearful of something, that they have blocked off a public street in Brooklyn. Brooklyn Police Hq on Johnson St has seven uniformed officers standing sentry duty 24/7. Two police cruisers, with police officers inside, engines idling, are parked across Johnson St blocking all traffic, even pedestrian traffic. Jersey barriers would be cheaper...
Putting seven officers on sentry duty 3 shifts a day, 5 days a week ties up 21 well paid uniformed officers. Covering the weekend uses five more cops and a fraction of a cop.
I heard NYC just raised the sales tax another 1/2 percent.
Will the last industry leaving New York please turn out the lights.
