How much worse will the situation in New York City get? Frankly, there’s no telling. But right now the Black Lives Matter racist rioters are emboldened. They know that the Democrats and the media have their backs. And much of the population has fallen for their propaganda, hook, line and sinker. So their violence is only escalating further.
Protests turned violent on Lower Manhattan on Wednesday and left nearly 40 people arrested and one of the NYPD’s top cops covered in blood.
Chief of Department Terence Monahan was among the seven officers injured during protests at City Hall when they were hit with canes, bats and debris.
Protesters at the “Defund the Police” encampment clashed with police and at least seven NYPD officers suffered injuries — Monahan suffered a hand injury, a lieutenant was struck in the head, a sergeant was struck in the head and a lieutenant suffered an eye socket fracture. The other three offers suffered minor injuries.
Police say 36 people were arrested, including individuals who assaulted cops.
And of course they’ll be right out what with bail “reform” and all the pro-crime “reforms”.
Shaborn Banks, 25, is accused of punching a lieutenant and leaving him with a fractured eye socket and 25-year-old Quran Campbell is charged with assaulting three officers on the bridge.
Police are still searching for an individual who assaulted officers with a cane.
“These are the conditions your officers have to operate in every day while they continue to protect your neighborhoods,” said NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea. “Such assaults are ALWAYS unacceptable, and should outrage us all.”
NYPD Sergeants’ Union President Ed Mullins said Mayor Bill de Blasio has lost control of the city.
“This guy in City Hall will not let us do our job,” Mullins said. “It’s time that stops, and it’s time they have a voice.”
At this point, I doubt any elected Democrat in New York City will let the police protect the public and do their job. And it’s not just New York.
