2 Cops Dead – NYPD Declares War on Black People
Earlier today, a tragedy occurred in Brooklyn, NY. Two police officers were shot and killed while in their patrol car by a deranged person who earlier in the day had shot is girlfriend in the stomach.
The death of the police officers was not warranted – they did not deserve it.
As soon as we got word of what happened, we immediately began telling everyone to be extra vigilant. Why? Because we expected right wing media and conservatives to pounce on this and paint a broad stroke across all of us (black people). In addition to the police being extra trigger happy as a result of this.
The person who shot the cops was black.
As we followed the story, the expected happened: right wing media began to chime in. Going so far as to say the blood of the cops is on the Mayor’s hands.
What else happened? Oh yeah, the NYPD declared war with this statement:
“Starting IMMEDIATELY- At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be. IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest. These are precautions that were taken in the 1970’s when Police Officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis. The mayors hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a “wartime” police department. We will act accordingly.”
That statement came from the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association of the City of New York—the largest NYPD union.
Yes, they declared war on black people. Look at what was said in the statement, they are aiming their anger and hurt at New York’s Mayor for statements he has made and his support of the anti-police brutality protests currently going on around the country.
Protests brought on as a result of the killing of unarmed black men – which occurs all the time (and has occurred since slavery).
Earlier, New York’s Mayor (Bill de Blasio) went to the hospital where the police officers died. Look at this image:
As the mayor entered, all of the police officers turned their back on him.
Now, keep in mind, the killing of the officers and the protests have absolutely nothing to do with each other. They are not related. However, with one swoop, the NYPD (and the right wing) is painting a broad stroke in implementing ALL protestors AND supports of the movement in causing the deaths of the officers. This is a prime example of how the cops view us. They are connecting the actions of one deranged black male who shot his girlfriend and then shot the cops as being representative of all black folks that they have harassed – and all black people in general. They see the two cops who died as justification of their actions towards blacks and others they abuse. Who spoke out against this abuse? The Mayor. Now look at the reception in the above photo again. Backs turned toward him. With the NYPD’s declaration of war, we advise all NYC civilians, especially black civilians, be extra careful for the foreseeable future.
