NYPD 'Hunting Of Man' T-Shirts Seen On On-Duty Officers In Queens

NYPD 'Hunting Of Man' T-Shirts Seen On On-Duty Officers In Queens



On-duty members of the NYPD’s Queens Warrant Squad were spotted outside a city courthouse last week wearing T-shirts imprinted with a Ernest Hemingway quote, that in the context of the officers’ work, could be considered very disturbing:

“There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.”

Tipsters, who passed along the photo below, told Gothamist and SocialistWorker.org that the cops had badges around their necks, and that words on the front of their T-shirts read, “Fugitive Enforcement NYPD.”

The Queens Warrant Squad was described by ABC News as “an elite team of parole officers whose job every day is to track down fugitive felons on the run.”
