  • Cop: I couldn’t save shooting victim because NYPD helped me cheat on CPR test

    New York Post ^ | February 4, 2016 | Emily Saul
    The partner of rookie cop Peter Liang told Brooklyn jurors Thursday that he himself was unqualified to resuscitate the man Liang accidently shot in a housing-project stairwell — because the Police Academy lets ­recruits cheat on their CPR- certification tests. So he did nothing to help the dying victim. “How much time [during training] did you spend on a mannequin?” the partner, Shaun Landau, was asked by Liang’s defense lawyer, ­Robert E. Brown. “Not sure,” Landau ad­mitted. “Less than two minutes?” the lawyer asked. “Yes,” Landau answered. Jurors learned Thursday that nothing could have saved unarmed Akai Gurley from the...
  • Martial law declared in New York City

    01/25/2016 2:35:18 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 56 replies
    It's the nagging fear many have about our government: what would happen if martial law was declared? New York City just found out, at least temporarily. Eleven states as well as Washington D.C. declared states of emergency in the wake of the massive record-breaking snowstorm which blanketed the East. But New York City went a step further. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared martial law in New York City by ordering all people to stay inside under police enforcement. He issued an absolute travel ban for anything that is not an emergency vehicle. The New York Police Department put out a blunt...

Eliot Engel (D-NY) (D-Bronx) and 91 other Democrats sent a letter to Obama this week asking him to go even further with his executive actions and ban the import of "assault weapons." Engel wrote the letter, in which he claimed "a mass shooting on average each day this year in this country." He described Obama's executive action to expand background checks as "important," then asked Obama to use the language of the Gun Control Act of 1968 to stop "assault weapons" from entering the country....

    NEW YORK — Mayor Bill de Blasio loped into a Brooklyn homeless shelter one day late last month, eager to demonstrate his command over a mushrooming homeless crisis that had already forced out two of his top advisers. Folding his 6-foot-5 frame in half, the Democratic mayor crouched down to hand out gifts to children, praised his team for “extraordinary work” and then faced a pack of reporters, one of whom asked why it took “so long” to make homelessness “a top priority.” “It’s been a priority from the beginning,” de Blasio insisted before adding, “No administration has cracked the...

Sharpton, in a wide-ranging interview with the Daily News editorial board Thursday, said he’d probably get in trouble for saying it, but admitted that the similarities between the boxing promoter and the real estate tycoon are striking. "My definition of Donald Trump is that if Don King had been born white, he'd be Donald Trump," Sharpton said.

    New York is reaping the whirlwind of sky-high cigarette taxes with a wave of smuggling decimating the state’s revenue. New York raised taxes on cigarettes to $4.35 in 2010 from $2.75. In total, cigarette taxes have increased by 190 percent since 2006. The sharp rise has resulted in a raft of unintended consequences which are dealing a significant blow to the state’s finances. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli reports New York’s revenue from cigarette taxes has plunged by $400 million over the past five years.

Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five...

Under a hastily drawn-up deal, the patients will continue to get coverage for treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center under the city's MetroPlus health plan. The patients had faced a tough choice: pay out of pocket or find new doctors because of the impending bankruptcy of Health Republic - one of the state's ObamaCare providers and the only one that covers treatment at Sloan Kettering.
