  • Four white NYPD chiefs say they were forced out of their jobs by mayor to fit his "diversity agenda".

    NEW YORK – Former NYC mayor Bill de Blasio forced four White NYPD top officials out of their jobs in order to push his diversity agenda, say the officers. An amended complaint revealed e-mails from 2017 between de Blasio and former Commissioner James O’Neill that expressed concern over the retirement of Carlos Gomez, the Chief of the Department, who is of Cuban descent. They stated that it would “only exacerbate the demographic tensions” in the city. The lawsuit filed on behalf of former Chief of Community Affairs Joanne Jaffe in the Southern District of New York revealed e-mails that have...

    An NYPD cop tracked his wife and her young new lover to a hotel — then fatally shot the man before killing himself in the horrific love triangle gone awry, law enforcement sources told The Post on Monday. Crazed off-duty Officer Sean Armstead, 36, had followed spouse Alexandra Vanderheyden, 35, and her 20-year-old beau, Edward Wilkins, to a La Quinta Inn in upstate Wallkill around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, sources said. Vanderheyden told investigators she believes that Armstead tracked her through her cellphone, sources said.

    An 88-year-old retired NYPD cop living out his golden years in Ireland was busted in a dragnet worthy of a Hollywood movie — for keeping an old, decommissioned revolver in his home. The daring morning police raid was the largest in recent memory in the tiny village of Swanlinbar, County Cavan, population 200, when up to 10 armed officers in six vehicles descended on the picture-postcard hamlet.

    The Forest Hills mom found dead in a hockey duffel bag spent some of her final hours puttering around her yard and enjoying a night out — before video caught a mysterious figure lugging her makeshift casket down the street. Cops are now trying to piece together how Orsolya Gaal, 51, went from a well-to-do, seemingly typical stay-at-home married mom of two to slay victim. “It’s a mystery,” an NYPD official told The Post on Sunday. “Now it’s a question of piecing together everything she did that night.” The source said that during Gaal’s final hours Friday, “She goes out...

    A rapper whose social-media accounts are filled with venomous anti-police rants is running to become a Democratic Party district leader in Brooklyn. Noah Weston — who is running on the “For the People” slate with congressional candidate Brittany Ramos De Barros and Assemblyman Mathylde Frontus in southern Brooklyn — has called officers “f–king pigs,” “plague rats” and “sacks of s–t” who do more harm than good. “The greatest threats in this city are Eric Adams and the NYPD,” Weston tweeted from noah4DL on Saturday. On Feb. 28, 2021, Weston — known as the rapper Soul Khan — retweeted a video...

    Mayor Eric Adams is mulling a mini-army of drones to fight surging crime in the Big Apple — possibly deploying the high-flying robocops from rooftops as watchful guardians of Gotham, sources told The Post. Tel Aviv-based Blue White Robotics and Easy Aerial of Brooklyn were two drone manufacturers featured earlier this month at an event to launch a NYC-Israel Chamber of Commerce. Adams attended the gathering in the Williamsburg Hotel, and sources said the mayor was so impressed with the joint presentation that he suggested his chief technology officer Matthew Fraser and the firms’ honchos begin talks about the city...

  • This Database Stores the DNA of 31,000 New Yorkers. Is It Illegal?

    The New York Times ^ | 22 March 2022 | Troy Closson
    The database used by the New York Police Department violates state law and the Constitution, the Legal Aid Society contends in a lawsuit. Three years ago, Shakira Leslie was returning home from a cousin’s birthday party in the Bronx when officers pulled over her friend’s car for a traffic infraction. After she got out of the back seat, the police searched her and found nothing illegal. But when a gun was found in another passenger’s bag, everyone in the car was arrested, charged with weapon possession and taken to a precinct. There, Ms. Leslie waited for more than 12 hours...

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg today announced the guilty plea of NYPD Sergeant Phillip Wong, 37, for punching a 48-year-old man in a Harlem holding cell in October 2019, and attacking a 35-year-old man during an arrest in an Upper West Side subway station in April 2020. The defendant pleaded guilty in New York State Supreme Court to both counts in the indictment against him: Assault in the Third Degree and Attempted Assault in the Third Degree. “Law enforcement officials are sworn to serve and protect their communities, including New Yorkers in their custody,” said District Attorney Bragg. “In this...

    A girl who had been missing for two years has been found safe in a secret room under a staircase in Saugerties, New York, police said. Paislee Shultis was reported missing from her Cayuga Heights home in July 2019, when she was 4 years old, according to NBC 4. Police initially suspected the girl’s non-custodial parents, but did not bring charges. New York State Police found the girl over 150 miles away on Monday, acting on a tip that she was being hidden in the Hudson Valley town.

    On Friday, Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon apologized for her post mocking the huge funeral of an NYPD officer, writing, “I deeply regret the meme I recently shared on Twitter that included a photo of Officer Jason Rivera’s funeral.” “I reacted quickly to the picture without connecting it to a police funeral and I realize now how insensitive and deeply disrespectful it was to make that point at that time,” she added. “’I sincerely apologize to the family of Officers Rivera and Mora for causing additional pain during their time of grieving.” On Tuesday, Sarandon sparked rage on social media after...

    Some NYPD cops who have refused to get vaccinated have a new February deadline to get the jab – or else they will get canned, The Post has learned. The updated guidance to the city’s municipal worker COVID-19 vaccine mandate was detailed in a Sunday night letter from the Sergeants Benevolent Association to its members. With regard to the NYPD, new hires in the department who haven’t shown proof of a second dose and those who were placed on unpaid leave for initially failing to comply with the October 2021 mandate face termination if they aren’t fully vaccinated by Feb....

    The Brooklyn public school teacher who posted an anti-cop Instagram post about the funeral of detective Jason Rivera is no longer an employee of the school. Coney Island Prep said on Sunday that Chris Flanigan, who appeared to encourage violence against cops mourning Rivera, no longer works for the school. “We do not condone or promote violence of any sort. As of this afternoon, Mr. Flanigan is no longer employed at Coney Island Prep,” Coney Island Prep CEO Leslie-Bernard Joseph said in a statement. “The teachers and staff of Coney Island Prep are public servants; and like all public servants...

    Yesterday I wrote about the Brooklyn public school teacher, Christopher Flanigan, who described the massive gathering of police officers at slain Detective Jason Rivera’s funeral as “ideal conditions for reciprocity,” after citing a 2020 instance where a police vehicle drove through a crowd of protesters and rioters in the city. I am forced to confess that I got one thing wrong when covering that story. After noting an actress who was fired after also complaining about the funeral, I said that her treatment was “more than you’ll see happening to Mr. Flanigan” because of the far-left climate in most of...

    A public city school teacher posted an Instagram story Saturday that appeared to encourage violence against police mourning the murder of detective Jason Rivera, drawing outrage from members of New York’s Finest. Christopher Flanigan, who teaches math at Coney Island Prep in Brooklyn according to his LinkedIn page, posted an overhead shot of thousands of officers lining Fifth Avenue for Rivera’s funeral Friday outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The post was captioned, “5/30/20: NYPD SUV drives into a crowd of protestors. Ideal conditions for reciprocity.” The incident Flanigan referenced happened in the wake of the George Floyd police murder, when an...

    A New York City actress was fired from her theater company for mouthing off about the inconvenience of street closures for slain cop Jason Rivera’s funeral — a vile online rant she quickly deleted after it went viral.“We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly. They kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason and we don’t shut down the city for them,” said Jacqueline Guzman on the clip, which appeared on TikTok under then handle @vinylboobs. Guzman spoke as she filmed...

    Cop lives mattered outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral Friday. Perhaps not since America welcomed its victorious legions home from Europe in 1945 have New York’s streets seen a uniformed presence quite like the blue wall that stood tall in Fifth Avenue Friday. They had come to honor the sacrifice of NYPD Officer Jason Rivera — murdered at 22 in service to a too-often-ungrateful city. On Wednesday, Officer Wilbert Mora — mortally wounded alongside Rivera in a Harlem apartment last week — will himself be laid to rest from the cathedral. His sacrifice was no less profound, but it will be hard...

    As first responders, family, friends, and New Yorkers gathered at St. Patrick's Cathedral to say goodbye to fallen NYPD Officer Jason Rivera on Friday, his young widow delivered a heart-wrenching and powerful tribute to her 22-year-old husband who was shot and killed — along with his partner Wilbert Mora — in the line of duty last week. "I would say good morning to you all, but in fact it's the worst morning ever," Dominique Luzuriaga began. "All of this seems so unreal, like I'm having one of those nightmares you never thought you'd have," she remarked. "Jason is so happy...
