  • Video shows man spray graffiti outside Manhattan courthouse as NYPD cops watch

    07/09/2020 9:18:08 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 50 replies ^ | July 9, 2020 | Amanda Woods
    Footage posted online this week captured the moment a vandal sprayed graffiti outside a Lower Manhattan courthouse, right under the noses of several cops — who do nothing but watch. The video, posted by the Sergeants’ Benevolent Association on Tuesday and taken in broad daylight, shows the man tagging the base of a lamppost in front of the Surrogate’s Courthouse at 31 Chambers St., which had already been vandalized amid Occupy City Hall protests last week. After the man finishes his scrawl, he strolls away, as three cops on the corner — and four on the next block — stand idle. “Watch...

    Samantha Shader, a 27-year-old white woman, was arrested on charges of throwing Molotov cocktails at an NYPD vehicle occupied by four officers at a protest following the death of George Floyd in late May. She faces charges including use of explosives to commit a felony, arson, and use of a destructive device. Shader’s actions were caught on tape and she admitted to throwing the makeshift explosive but claimed three “Black” strangers had approached her on the street and given her the bottle. But this past Friday, July 3, police arrested a white man who admitted to federal authorities he’d given...

    Recent protests in New York City have shaken the public’s faith in the city’s police department to the point where Mayor Bill de Blasio should no longer have authority in law enforcement matters, New York’s state attorney general said Wednesday. “I believe we need to bridge the undeniable divide between police and public,” Letitia James told reporters, according to The New York Times. As part of her recommendations, James called for an independent panel – not de Blasio -- to appoint the city’s police commissioner and oversee hirings and firings at the NYPD.

    Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment a man was fatally shot while crossing a Bronx street — hand-in-hand with his 6-year-old daughter. The clip, tweeted by Rodney Harrison, the NYPD’s chief of detectives, opens with Anthony Robinson approaching the intersection of Sheridan Avenue and East 170th Street in Mount Eden around 5:50 p.m. Sunday. Clasping his young daughter’s left hand in his right, Robinson, 29, stops at a crosswalk to eye a dark sedan slowing next to them, appearing to check whether the driver was turning into their path. But the driver continues to roll along next to father and...

    Maurene Comey being among the federal prosecutors on the case has raised eyebrows among NYPD detectives assigned to the task force. One detective close to the case told Los Angeles that appointing Comey, an Assistant U.S. Attorney with no experience in human trafficking cases and one with close ties to a bureau that’s come under fire for the handling of the Epstein case in Florida, has an air of “impropriety.” Comey was hired by the Southern District as a clerk in 2014, and became a prosecutor in 2015, an unusually short amount of time to be assigned one of the...

    ... Gun violence exploded across the city after the NYPD disbanded its anti-crime unit of plainclothes cops on June 15, with three times as many shootings in the last two weeks of the month over the same period in 2019, police stats show. And the shocking rise in gunfire — to 116 incidents from 38 between June 15 and June 2, a 205 percent increase — meant scores more victims were hurt or killed by bullets this year over last year. Gunshot injuries skyrocketed to 157 from 47 in 2019, a 238 percent increase. With a total of 205 shootings...

    The FBI knew about allegations against convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell at least as early as 2006, possibly as early as 1996, an Epstein accuser says. Maxwell was not arrested until Thursday after a grand jury indicted the British socialite and heiress on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors to these illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury. Painter Maria Farmer alleges that she and her sister were sexually abused by Epstein and Maxwell in 1996 when...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NY City Council have reached an agreement to cut $1 billion from the NYPD budget next year but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it isn’t enough.The mayor appears to have come up with a plan that will shift a big portion of that $1 billion in funding to another city agency without actually cutting anything. But the remainder of the cuts still mean less overtime and that the city won’t be hiring nearly 1,200 new officers: The mayor and the City Council agreed on Monday to reach that $1 billion in cuts by, among...

    Hundreds of NYPD officers have filed for retirement in the weeks after George Floyd’s death through June 23, almost 50 percent more than last year. A total of 272 officers filed for retirement during that time period – a 49 percent increase over the same time period in 2019, the New York Post reports. Last year, 183 officers file for retirement during that time. "We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’" Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch told the New York Post. "And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he has proposed a plan for the city to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s nearly $6 billion budget, according to officials and multiple reports. De Blasio’s announcement falls in line with city council leaders’ calls for the billion-dollar cut to the police department’s budget. The Democratic mayor revealed details of his proposal during a Monday morning press conference. He said his office presented the plan to City Council over the weekend and called this “a moment where we have to address profound issues. We need to redistribute revenue to communities that...

    When Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley murdered NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they ate lunch in their patrol car last Saturday, the only people who could possibly have been surprised were those who have not realized how assiduously Leftist and Muslim activists have worked – long before the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner — to demonize the NYPD and law enforcement in general. The advent of the killer was only a matter of time.

    The NYPD precinct boss who retired in protest this week blasted politicians for wanting to “vilify” cops during a raucous final walk-out celebration at his Bronx stationhouse Friday. Deputy Inspector Richard Brea rode off in a restored classic police car at about 3 p.m. after the celebration outside the 46th Precinct, which featured an NYPD helicopter fly by and NYPD bagpipers. In a speech at the ceremony, Brea slammed politicians for not backing police officers amid nationwide protests against police brutality. “Their blood is in the concrete of every street corner, but these politicians don’t want to remember that. They...

    'Morale is down, shootings are up.'New York City police officers are becoming increasingly frustrated with the city's law enforcement policies, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro said Friday on "Fox & Friends," as she pointed out the resignation of a precinct commander in the Bronx. "It’s crazy, and you know, we are now going to see the reverse of the pendulum, where crime is going to go up and we will suffer the consequences of a feckless police department, not in terms of the cops, but in terms of the direction from the top," said the host of "Justice of...

One was involved with the riots at Herald Square earlier this month and made three arrests. He was also at the Barkley Center the first night of the protest and Union Square during the riots. Here's the latest directly from his mouth: 1- A member of his precinct (the 42nd)was followed home by a group of thugs as his shift ended. The thugs were making gang signs (the belief was to bring in other gang...
