[Update, 12/30/14: Well, this additional fact didn’t take long to further document the cancerous climate created by our cop-killer-in chief:
A new report out found a sharp rise in the number of police officers killed by guns in 2014, including 15 of what the Associated Press calls “ambush” shootings.
As the Associated Press reports:
The number of law enforcement officers killed by firearms jumped by 56 percent this year and included 15 ambush deaths… In 2011, 73 officers were killed in gunfire, the most in any year in the past decade. The average since 2004 is 55 police deaths annually.
The AP notes that the motivation of these vicious ambush attacks is politics.
As the city was thrust into mourning, with flags lowered and police badges ribboned in black, the way Mr. Brinsley had stalked the officers set off precautions across the department. Officers who in recent weeks had felt besieged by political attacks found themselves contemplating the specter of far greater peril.
Neither “news” source has the basic journalistic integrity to point out the obvious blatant FACT that these “political attacks” are ALL coming from the vile political left. [end update]
Liberal Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio is to blame for the assassination of two NYPD police officers. And the documented facts prove it:
“We’re not just dealing with years of racism leading up to it or decades of racism,” de Blasio said. “We are dealing with centuries of racism that have brought us to this day. That is how profound the crisis is.”
Mayor de Blasio made “moronic” comments Sunday that prove he “doesn’t belong” in New York, a key police union chief said, further inflaming the war of words between Hizzoner and the NYPD.
The comments from Ed Mullins, head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, came after de Blasio reiterated his concern that his son, Dante, could be harmed by a police officer if he were to make any sudden movements in a hypothetical encounter with cops.
“What parents have done for decades who have children of color, especially young men of color, is train them to be very careful when they have …an encounter with a police officer,” de Blasio said on ABC’s “This Week.”
Mullins ripped right into de Blasio later in the day, calling his comments “really hypocritical and moronic” and suggesting the mayor get out of his own city.
“He has a security detail of New York City police officers assigned to protect his family. And yet he’s making statements that his son shouldn’t feel safe with New York City cops,” Mullins said on John Catsimatidis’ radio show on AM970.
De Blasio – being a liberal and a Democrat and therefore a despicable roach – has an easy to document history of hiring cop-hating staffers to fill his payroll and carry out his vile policies:
The New York Post reported in March 2013 and again this year on Motley’s offensive Twitter comments.
“NYPD fatally shoot knife-wielding man in Times Square. F–k. The. Police,” Motley wrote on Aug. 11, 2012, of the police shooting death of Darrius Kennedy, The Post reported.
One of the last straws was when de Blasio brought racist, race-baiting race hustler Al Sharpton to a place of high honor and allowed him to demonize the NYPD:
He [de Blasio] took the unusual step — unimaginable under the mayoralties of Rudy Giuliani or Michael Bloomberg — of inviting Sharpton to City Hall, seating him opposite Bratton at a table where the activist proceeded to strongly denounce the police. (“If Dante wasn’t your son, he’d be a candidate for a chokehold. And we got to deal with that reality,” Sharpton said to de Blasio as Bratton looked on.) Last week, de Blasio privately met with organizers of the Garner protests, another moment that antagonized police.
But the action that turned off cops most of all was his defense of City Hall staffer Rachel Noerdlinger, a longtime Sharpton aide whose son and boyfriend posted anti-police messages on their Facebook accounts. The boyfriend allegedly tried to drive a cop off the road in Edgewater, New Jersey, and later pleaded to a lesser offense, according to the New York Post. The mayor stood behind Noerdlinger for weeks until her son was arrested for trespassing – and even then he didn’t fire her. When she left her job, City Hall officials said she was on leave.
“His words and his deeds don’t match,” said veteran cop reporter Leonard Levitt, who runs NYPD Confidential, a website fed by tips from inside the department and widely read by the rank-and-file. “You had Noerdlinger’s son calling cops ‘pigs’ and de Blasio doesn’t think that’s inappropriate? What message are you sending? De Blasio says it’s just the union guys who are angry. It’s not. It’s everybody. I’ve been covering this for 25 years and I have never seen anything like it… The mayor doesn’t have a clue.”
And here – FINALLY – was the police response:
NY police to mayor De Blasio: Don’t attend my funeral
The police union believes the mayor’s presence would be insulting following support for Garner protests
Dec 14, 2014
By Allen McDuffee The Atlantic
NEW YORK — New York City’s police union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, is urging its members to ban Mayor Bill de Blasio from their funerals, the latest episode in the ongoing clash between the mayor and the city’s law-enforcement power structure.
Officers are encouraged to fill out a form on the union’s website titled “Don’t Insult My Sacrifice” to request that neither de Blasio nor Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito attend their funeral, should they be killed in the line of duty.
The form reads:
I, _____________________, as a New York City police officer, request that Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito refrain from attending my funeral services in the event that I am killed in the line of duty. Due to Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Mark-Viverito’s consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve, I believe that their attendance at the funeral of a fallen New York City police officer is an insult to that officer’s memory and sacrifice.
Full Story: Police to De Blasio: Don’t attend my funeral
NOTE THE DATE THE POLICE SAID, “DON’T COME TO OUR FUNERALS.”
It occurred LESS THAN ONE WEEK BEFORE A THUG CITING THE VERY BULLCRAP THAT BARACK OBAMA, ERIC HOLDER, AL SHARPTON AND YES, MAYOR DE BLASIO HAD INCITED:
2 N.Y.P.D. Officers Killed in Brooklyn Ambush; Suspect Commits Suicide
By BENJAMIN MUELLER and AL BAKERDEC. 20, 2014
Two police officers sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn were shot at point-blank range and killed on Saturday afternoon by a man who, officials said, had traveled to the city from Baltimore vowing to kill officers. The suspect then committed suicide with the same gun, the authorities said.
The officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant in the shadow of a tall housing project when the gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, walked up to the passenger-side window and assumed a firing stance, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said. Mr. Brinsley shot several rounds into the heads and upper bodies of the officers, who never drew their weapons, the authorities said.
He said, “They take 1 of ours…Let’s take 2 of theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGarner #RIPMikeBrown This may be my final post I’m putting pigs in a blanket.” – See more at: http://www.teaparty.org/wake-ny-shooting-left-abandons-climate-hate-rhetoric-used-slam-sarah-palin-73923/#sthash.pldsJ9BV.dpuf
There is a DIRECT correspondence between what liberals said and what this cop murderer believed and literally claimed was his motive for assassinating police officers.
Remember what THE most honored liberal “journalist” wrote when a deranged shooter who had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH EITHER CONSERVATIVES OR CONSERVATIVE STATEMENTS claimed when a Democrat was shot?
When you heard the terrible news from Arizona, were you completely surprised? Or were you, at some level, expecting something like this atrocity to happen?
Put me in the latter category. I’ve had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach ever since the final stages of the 2008 campaign. I remembered the upsurge in political hatred after Bill Clinton’s election in 1992 — an upsurge that culminated in the Oklahoma City bombing. And you could see, just by watching the crowds at McCain-Palin rallies, that it was ready to happen again.
There was absolutely ZERO connection between the deranged shooter and anything that anyone on the political right said or did. Loughner was as tuned out to political reality as he was to every other kind of reality. Unlike the present situation, where there is clearly a one-to-one correlation between the statements of the left and the actions of a cop assassin who acted on the demon-possessed hate of the Democrat Party machine.
And yes, beloved liberal Democrat Roach Al Sharpton – who has been at Barack Obama’s White House over eighty-five racist race-bating times to spew his race-hatred – has the same blood on his demon claws that de Blasio has:
FLASHBACK: Al Sharpton’s Marchers in New York City Chant “What Do We Want? Dead Cops!”
Katie Pavlich | Dec 21, 2014
As Obama civil rights advisor Al Sharpton frantically tries to distance himself from the revenge execution style slayings of two NYPD officers Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn, keep in mind that just one week ago protestors at his march in New York City were chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do what them? Now!”
The protesters were part of Al Sharpton’s “Million Marchers” protest against police violence. The protesters chanted “What do we want?… Dead cops!” as they marched in New York City.
Meanwhile, former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik is accusing Sharpton and NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio of having blood on their hands.
“In this circumstance I believe, I personally feel, that Mayor de Blasio, Sharpton and others like them, they actually have blood on their hands,” Kerik said. “They encouraged this behavior. They encouraged protests. These so-called peaceful protests that, where people are standing out there saying ‘kill the cops.’”
“Well, I hope they’re happy, because they got what they wanted,” Kerik added.
