The Shrine, a Harlem bar and restaurant that provides live entertainment for a racially and ethnic diverse group, was "occupied" by NYPD on Saturday night March 10, 2012.  NYPD and others were apparently conducting an inspection. The resources used for this occupation were a dozen officers, commanders, vans, and police vehicles. For what?  Why on Saturday?  Where was the threat to public safety?  There was none.
