The recent repeal of Section 50-A of the New York State Civil Rights Law was no technical change. Passed in the wake of the George Floyd protests, it was a big victory for police-reform activists. Section 50-A shielded the disciplinary records of police officers, meaning that, in an officer-involved killing, for example, nobody—not journalists, lawyers, nor the victim’s family—could determine if an officer had a history of disciplinary incidents. The New Yorker staff writer William Finnegan examines how 50-A came to be a hot-button issue, and how Mayor Bill de Blasio has responded to the demands of the public and the police. David Remnick interviews Mayor Lori Lightfoot, of Chicago, about the federal agents sent to her city, and how she’s tackling the issue of police reform. Plus, Jeffrey Toobin discusses his newest book, “True Crimes and Misdemeanors,” which examines the Mueller investigation and the impeachment of Donald Trump.
