NERO – GOTHAM IS BURNING – 12 SHOT
The below document is a copy of an email that was sent to the SBA office this morning. It is from an NYPD member who responded to the scene where 12 people were shot last night. This incident happened in the very same Precinct where cops had buckets of water tossed on them. None of it is funny, 12 people were shot, someone is dead, and cops were hit with water. NYC is slowly crumbling. Don’t say you weren’t warned. Restore the NYPD – REMOVE O’NEILL!
Baltimore, Chicago, and other cities have demonized their protectors. They have showed time and time again the city will burn when a cop justifiably kills a thug but they will sit back in silence as the bodies or their families and friends pile up....because no police were involved.
Your protectors are afraid to be proactive. Hell, they are afraid to be reactive because of the lack of support and hostility from the community and city government.
Shame on all of you.
On Wednesday, July 24, 2019 NYPD Chief of Department Terrance Monahan was widely quoted saying the following in response to the water bucket attacks on police officers:
“Any cop who thinks that that’s all right — that they can walk away from something like that — maybe should reconsider whether or not this is the profession for them,” he said.
“We don’t take that.”
“As it was 30 years ago when you came on this job, being a cop is a tough job,”
“It’s not easy. It wasn’t easy back in 1989, [and] it’s not easy right now.”
It’s easy to say those cops should have made arrests. It’s easy to put out a memo citing the crimes they could have charged. It’s also easy to tell the whole truth about these incidents. However, Chief Monahan left a great deal of truth off the table.
I am certain those cops knew what they could have arrested those miscreants for. I am certain they were not afraid to arrest those punks and I am certain they were not afraid to fight them when they inevitably resisted arrest.
What those cops were afraid of is what would happen if they won the fight. What they were afraid of was the Police Commissioner’s response if one of these water-throwing delinquents was injured while being taken into custody or, God forbid, died shortly after the arrest.
First would come the immediate calls of police brutality and racism. Then, the canonization of the neighborhood youths who were just having some harmless fun interacting with the local cops. They were just playing after all. It was just water! Why did the cops have to overreact? Then, the calls for indictments. And ultimately what would inevitably follow: the leadership of the Department would completely turn its back on the officers involved.
That’s why those officers didn’t fight back or make arrests, make no mistake about it. Failed police leadership.
What Chief Monahan conveniently ignores is that in 1989, regardless of the politics of city hall, we had police leadership. Leadership that backed their cops and gave them the benefit of a doubt and an investigation. Today, we have leaders who, in a rush to please their cop hating master in city hall, run away and disown a cop when times get tough.
What we are all experiencing is what I describe as the Pantaleo Effect.
Daniel Pantaleo was sent by a police executive in the Chief of Department’s Office to address a minor crime – untaxed cigarette enforcement. A revenue stream to the city. What followed was Eric Garner berated the officers and refused to be arrested; when the officers tried to put his hands behind his back, he resisted. Make no mistake, no man should die as a result of minor crimes or cigarette enforcement. However, Eric Garner died as a direct result of his resisting arrest, plain and simple.
In 1989, someone in authority would have said so. They would have explained the facts and, yes, maybe even issued a memo explaining the law, not to the officers in the NYPD but rather to the residents of the City of New York.
Under the de Blasio/O’Neill administration, Officer Pantaleo was abandoned by the Department’s Commissioner and leadership staff even though every police executive in the Department knows that what happened with Daniel Pantaleo could have happened to any one of them.
Then we have the incident with Sergeant Hugh Barry from the 43 Pct., who responded to a violent Emotionally Disturbed Person call and was confronted with a 67 year old woman armed with scissors. Sgt. Barry spoke to her calmly and talked her into putting the scissors down. Suddenly, she changed her mind and tried to hit him in the head with a baseball bat. Sgt. Barry had no choice but to defend himself. This scenario plays out thirty times a day in New York City and to date there has been no significant change in policy, even though the practice remains the same.
In 1989, the leadership of the NYPD would have called for calm and let the investigation unfold. The crowd of sycophants leading the Department today said “WE FAILED” before the investigation even began, all while having knowledge that the 67 year old woman had a long prior history of terrifying her neighbors with erratic and threatening behavior.
Both Pantaleo and Barry involve officers doing their jobs exactly as trained. When the unforeseeable or unexpected happened, the leaders of the Department were literally the first to condemn them.
Hence, the Pantaleo Effect: proud and hard-working police officers will allow themselves to be jeered and humiliated by bucket-throwing deviants rather than risk being the next Daniel Pantaleo or Hugh Barry.
Chief Monahan, this job today is much tougher than it was in 1989, and not because the streets are any more dangerous. It’s tougher because each and every cop on the street is putting their lives, careers and freedom in the hands of failed leadership. Those cops we’ve all seen in videos having buckets of water dumped on them allowed themselves to be debased because they have no confidence that the leadership in this Department will defend them if they rise up and defend themselves.
Maybe it’s time for O’Neill and Monahan to consider another profession.
To the proud members of the NYPD: no more assassinations, hold the line, don’t back down, stay together, protect yourself and your cops, what you do matters. Because the leadership of this Department has failed you, do not fail the millions of people who support you. The nation is watching. Please remain safe at all costs, and know and believe in your hearts that the SBA has and will always stand in front of you.
Make no mistake: we will win.
God bless you and your families.

ANGER AND SHAME
Published on July 25, 2019
Recent events in Brooklyn, Harlem and on the subway involving acts of disrespect toward police officers in uniform has provoked the sentiments of anger and shame in me. Let me explain; I am angry as hell at the "woke", "progressive", political establishment of New York City, who are a disgrace to the City of New York. They collectively have created a situation that can only get worse for the rule of law in New York. They have replaced common sense, impartiality, and honesty in the pursuit of happiness in the City with crazy theories about our sub-conscious prejudices and minority privilege.
The educational and criminal justice systems in this City are under attack by these "progressives", with not a care for the consequences of these deranged theories. Our mayor has indicated on a number of occasions now that he had "The Talk" with his son about how not to enrage the racist police of the City if he is ever stopped by them. Mr Mayor, it is now time for you to have a different" Talk" with your supporters in each of the boroughs. You should begin by explaining to your supporters that you were wrong to attack the motives of the men and women of the NYPD. You should then apologize to those men and women of the NYPD who put it all on the line, 24/7, 365 a year for all persons in the City, resident or tourist, businessperson or employee, homeless or condo dweller, citizen or alien.
Your next step should be training and teaching the youth of the City in correct, courteous behavior that is the norm in most civilized cities in the world. You may also mention the fact that in the future, parents will be held responsible for the behavior of their minor children, while adult children will be answerable to the courts for their behavior. Deviancy will no longer be de-criminalized, people must expect consequences for their anti-social and criminal behavior. No excuses, no hard luck stories, no placing the blame on our institutions of education, health and policing for the lack of civility, rude and dangerous, threatening behavior by far too many youths and adults in our City.
I am ashamed that members of my beloved NYPD when confronted with behavior that could just have easily been life threatening, did NOTHING. They turned their backs on a threat, walked away defeated, all the while in UNIFORM. We who have served understand that when you wear the uniform, it is not about you anymore. You represent all of us in the Department, and the City of New York. You make it harder for the next cop who runs into the same people who backed you down. These people have now become emboldened to take perhaps more serious action against a police officer thinking that there will be no consequences for them. This is a very dangerous situation for the other officers in that precinct, who may meet these same people on the street in a day, a week, a month later.
I have been retired for 20 years now, but I have known and witnessed true American heroes who wore that NYPD uniform with pride and courage during their careers. How dare any members of the Department disgrace that same uniform by giving in to their selfish fears. Worries about what the Department or the public might think of your actions are no justification for not stepping up and doing the right thing.
Shame on you. Resign now.
God bless the men and women of the NYPD. Walk tall, hold your heads high, and never back down.
