NYPD Blasts de Blasio Over War on Cops

After two more cops were targeted, the city’s police have had it with the mayor.

An assailant was arrested Sunday in New York City after two separate attacks on police officers that law enforcement dubbed assassination attempts. “He was depressed at times because his son got shot in the street,” explained the perpetrator’s grandmother. But others blame anti-police rhetoric for motivating the assailant.

“Anyone who spews hatred at our officers is aiding and abetting this kind of atmosphere; it is not acceptable,” said Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio. “You could protest for whatever you believe in, but you cannot vilely attack those who are here to protect us. It creates this kind of dynamic.”

We’re glad to hear de Blasio say so, but many — including numerous NYPD officers — blame de Blasio himself for falling in with the Democrat war on cops begun by Barack Obama and his ilk. The two officers in New York aren’t the first in that city or elsewhere to be attacked or murdered by anti-cop zealots inspired by leftists slandering police as racists.

A union representing New York’s police sergeants declared, “Mayor DeBlasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you! We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you. NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you.”

Why the blame? De Blasio won office partly on promises to rein in policing in minority communities, and he has followed through with several measures. New Yorkers are starting to notice the resulting rise in crime. Blue lives matter, and until Democrats come around to that point of view, attacks on police will likely continue.
