A New York Shootout with a Career Criminal Ends with Onlookers Shouting Death to the Cops. How Did We Get Here?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On Tuesday in The Big Apple, cops got in a shootout with a career criminal following a call of domestic assault.

When all was said and done, an officer had been shot in the hand, the assailant was dead, and witnesses were shouting death to law enforcement.

According to The New York Post, some yelled, “Get the **** out of here,” while one man belted out…let’s say…a request for oral gratification.

There was also “All of y’all can die! I hope that happens!”

The man who was killed had been arrested 16 times. He was initially tased but still managed to fire at police.

As for the expressed wishes for cop casualties, a law enforcement source told the Post it’s no new experience:

“You hear this more and more. The public just has no respect for cops. All they want to do is fight cops. It never used to be that way.”

The source blamed the cultural shift on Mayor Bill de Blasio, who in June, characterized ICE as a weapon out to get NYC residents in the country illegally:

But the source believes it began much earlier.

From The Daily Wire:

“It all started with de Blasio. He’s the one to blame for the way the public treats cops,” citing the 2014 ambush slayings of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. A third source echoed, “Are you surprised? Somebody’s shooting at a police officer and nobody cares. … They’re more concerned about the perp than the cop who’s there to protect them. You call the police to do a job, a cop gets shot, but they’re upset that a guy who was shooting a cop is dead.”

In 2015, after the ambush murders of Liu and Ramos, at the service honoring them, dozens of New York City police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio.

And that wasn’t the only time. During the funeral for assassinated officer and mom of three Miosotis Familia, hundreds of the NYPD turned their backs to Mayor Bill.

The parolee who shot her in the head as she sat in a marked vehicle with her partner was known for making anti-cop threats on social media.

It definitely says a lot when onlookers curse the cops instead of the criminal. It’s a shift, possibly due to past wrongs on multiple sides — broadcasted incidents such as this certainly don’t help things.

Any and all of those are wrongs which need to be made right.

Putting aside this particular incident — about which we can’t be sure of the details — what do you think has caused such an overall change?

I look forward to hearing from you.

      Only an IDIOT would call the cops in an emergency! They now have a LONG history of killing the innocents. This all started over a decade ago whe they started sending USA cops to Israel for training on how to terrorize the public using way the hell EXCESSIVE FORCE on innocent people, including bashing their teeth out by ramming peoples faces onto the concrete ground. This actually happened to one non-protester in Canada simply for being in the vicinity of protesters and was caought on video. Over the last 15 years I have watched over 2000 police brutality videos.

      Just this past week I ran across the following:

      Cops Claim They Had to Smash Innocent Autistic Teen’s Head Into Concrete to “Protect Her”

      Graphic footage shows Officer Joshua Carrol using excessive force

      And of course we all know about the plethora of the all too often FATAL – NO KNOCK SWAT TEAM raids on INNOCENT FAMILIES!

      the real crimes start with cops and go on up, or down but they are all crooks with low i.q.s and guns. you should try living in S.D. we have the worst in the nation but u wont here that on the news :arrow: Got 3 cops in my family all not very bright and wrong all the time but that shiny badge makes them right about everything. The dumbest people in my family have the most power and we now all hate them, give an asshole power and watch them go nuts. That is what we are seeing :idea: :arrow:

      When legislation alienates itself from what people consider just, the oldest institution, vengeance of blood takes over. This was the base of most 18th century legislation. Police did important work in Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union and in 911 New York. Really makes you wonder why police is considered just another gang? :sad:

      Today I was talking with a researcher who I consider to be greater than myself who told me that last year in the United States there were 80,000 Swat Team home invasions in the United States, and that 47% of them were mysteriously to the “WRONG ADDRESS”.

      Go figure PEEPS!
