What People at 1 Police Plaza Like to Edit on Wikipedia

In order to figure out the NYPD’s favorite Wikipedia entries, the folks at Capital New York wrote a computer program that searched Wikipedia for anonymous edits originating from computers with IP addresses registered to 1 Police Plaza. Some of their findings are both disturbing and unsurprising — of course someone there has been editing the Eric Garner entry — but some are also just hilarious. 

The NYPD told Capital the editing incident is under “internal review,” so look out for future edits to the entry “NYPD Wikipedia Scandal.”
