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.

Now the FBI-Garner team makes sense, along with Lynch's heated, threatening remarks. It appears as though the Obama AG and Justice Department were using the Garnerinvestigation as a way of shutting down the probe into the Weiner laptop (and remember, he and Abedin decided on an out-of-court, non-public settlement).
Nov 04, 2016 · Erik Prince said that according to one of his sources, the NYPD was ready to announce 'the warrants and the additional arrests they were making' in the Anthony Weiner investigation, but received 'huge pushback' from the Justice Department.
