New York City is so out of control that, in two separate incidents, punks are allowed to assault NYPD cops with water and water buckets without facing consequences.
The cops just walk away.
Watch these disgusting scenes for yourself, scenes I never thought I would see in any American city, much less New York:
One video was taken in Harlem, another in the Bronx, and this assault. Drenching someone in the water is assault and as you will see in the video of the arrest in Harlem, an officer is hit in the head with a water bucket that’s hurled directly at him.
This is the primary thing people need to keep in mind about what this all means…
If this is happening to police officers if things in New York are so out of control that a bunch of thugs believes they can assault police officers with impunity, imagine what life is like for everyday citizens. If police officers in the city are thus vulnerable to attack, no one in the city is safe… No one.
The response from Mayor de Blasio, the man responsible for neutering the NYPD, was all empty talk.
“Throwing things at an NYPD is not only not acceptable, it can lead to charges. All of those actions can lead to those charges, additional charges. So people have to really understand this serious stuff. Don’t do it, don’t aid and abet it,” Mayor Eunuch said in a statement.
The New York City Police Benevolent Society, however, understands exactly what has happened in New York at the hands of openly anti-police politicians like de Blasio.
“Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen,” the PBA tweeted. “It’s not the fault of these police officers. It’s the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall and Albany for years now.”
“We are approaching the point of no return. Disorder controls the streets, and our elected leaders refuse to allow us to take them back. As police officers, we need to draw a line. In situations like this, we need to take action to protect ourselves and the public.”

The police union also released a statement: “The politicians may not care about the dangerous levels of chaos in our neighborhoods, but police officers and decent New Yorkers should not be forced to suffer.”
The primary duty of the government, federal or local, is to safeguard the rights of its citizens, is to ensure no one’s rights are violated. It is not the government’s responsibility to give us healthcare, to make sure everyone’s wedding cake gets baked, or to decide what the minimum wage should be. The only thing the government should be concerned with is that our rights to live our lives as we choose are not violated, and if we cannot walk down a public street safely, we have no rights.
