The 71st Precinct in Crown Heights is under fire for an Ernest Hemingway quote posted on their wall.
According to a report by Gothamist, the quote reads, "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."
Advocates are calling for its removal, saying it glorifies violence against the community.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller responded to the backlash.
"To insinuate any meaning to the Hemingway quote other than the fact that tracking and arresting violent, armed criminals can be exhilarating, rewarding, and often dangerous is a disservice to the meaning of the Hemingway quote and to the officers who do this work," said Miller.
