NYPD Deploys Robot Dog To Catch “COVID Violators”

In another giant step toward our totalitarian future, New York City has deployed robotic dogs designed to catch people who violate the draconian COVID-19 restrictions.

According to a report by ABC7 in New York, the New York Police Department (NYPD) is set to receive a new Boston Dynamics robot dog with special features, including an arm to open doors and move objects. “This dog is going to save lives, protect people, and protect officers and that’s our goal,” NYPD Technical Assistance Response Unit Inspector (TARU) Frank Digiacomo told ABC7.

“This robot is able to use its artificial intelligence to navigate things, very complex environments,” NYPD TARU’s Deepu John said, according to Activist Post. 

This is the department’s only robot dog, and during the latest testing phase, it has been used a few times in the field. The existence of the robot came to light in late October after it assisted in a suspect’s arrest in Brooklyn. This particular robot model, known as Spot, has been put to work in other applications this year, including work on an oil rignuclear power plantcar plant, and military base.

Digidog is capable of two-way communication and could also be used by NYPD to enforce mask-wearing – this was seen earlier this year in Singapore.

If there’s one thing we try to keep a eye on, it’s the potential use of this global pandemic for governments to try and unleash new and “interesting” ways of surveillance.

Thus, our eyes and ears perked up when we learned that Singapore was now going to be using robot dogs to patrol public areas and make sure that citizens are keeping their distance from one another. Municipal authorities are using Spot, a four-legged robot dog made by Boston Dynamics, to remind visitors to parks to keep a safe distance from one another.

The robo-doggo officially started patrol at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park on Friday as part of a two week trial, according to The Verge. Spot is fitted with cameras that are used to estimate the number of visitors in the park, but Singapore says it won’t collect personal data or use the video to identify individuals. Sure. –ZeroHedge

Techo tyranny is here.

Coronavirus Enforcement Gov. andrew cuomo Intelwars New york city sheriff's NYPD Thanksgiving lockdowns

Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasts NYPD for refusing to enforce Thanksgiving restrictions: Those people aren’t real law enforcement officers

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) blasted members of the NYPD for refusing to enforce restrictions on indoor gatherings ahead of Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday.

What’s a brief history here?

Last week, Cuomo issued updated COVID-19-related restrictions — which included a 10-person limit on indoor gatherings — to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

His latest remarks come on the heels of New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea’s recent announcement that the NYPD has no plans to break up indoor gatherings despite the state limit being 10 people per home.

What are the details?

According to a Wednesday New York Post report, Cuomo blasted police for turning a blind eye to such gatherings, and for allegations that many officers themselves refuse to wear masks.

“A lot of police officers don’t wear a mask,” he said. “[W]ell, how are you then supposed to enforce other people wearing a mask when they see you not wearing a mask? ‘I violate the law but you can’t.’ No! Nobody said you were above the law! I don’t believe that person is a law enforcement officer. I don’t want a law enforcement officer who says, ‘I’m only enforcing the law that I like or think should be enforced.'”

Last week, Shea told NY1, “We’re not planning on breaking up Thanksgiving celebrations. … We have to be smart. We’re encouraging everyone to use common sense here and to get New York City through this. No one in large gatherings, we think at this point that’s common sense.”

Anything else?

According to the New York Post, several New York state sheriffs announced a refusal to enforce Cuomo’s mandate on Thanksgiving gatherings.

One such law enforcement official is Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino, who took to Facebook and wrote, “Frankly, I am not sure it could sustain a Constitutional challenge in Court for several reasons including your house is your castle. And as a Sheriff with a law degree I couldn’t in good faith attempt to defend in Court, so I won’t. … We have limited resources and we have to set priorities, so obtaining a Search Warrant to enter your home to see how many Turkey or Tofu eaters are present is not a priority.”

Washington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy, Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard, and Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo also echoed Giardino’s sentiments, according to the outlet.

In a news release, Zurlo said, “I can’t see how devoting our resources to counting cars in citizens’ driveways or investigating how much turkey and dressing they’ve purchased is for the public good.”

Assault Attack in subway Brooklyn assault COVID-19 Intelwars NYPD viral videos

Video shows brutal attack on older woman who asked a young couple to put on masks before joining her in elevator

Police are looking for two suspects in connection with a brutal attack on a 60-year-old woman last Friday.

The attack took place in a subway station elevator near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to
TMZ.

What are the details?

According to the outlet, an unnamed 60-year-old woman reportedly tried to reason with a young couple to put on masks before joining her in the subway station elevator.

Video surveillance of the exchange shows the woman appearing to speak to the couple about their lack of masks.

Instead of complying with her purported request, a young male can be seen forcing his way past the woman as his young accomplice gets into a scuffle with the older woman.

The male suspect can then be seen exiting the elevator, and when outside the doors, he begins to strike the older woman, knocking her down on the ground.

The three continue to scuffle as the woman is down on the ground, and both the male and the female can be seen raining blows down on her.

After the incident, both suspects — who the New York Post reports are believed to be in their late teens — reportedly fled from the scene.

At the time of this reporting, the two suspects are still believed to be on the run.

The NYPD is seeking the identities of the male and the female on the video, and is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for tips leading to the arrest.

Bill de Blasio Chirlane mccray Intelwars Mental Health NYPD Plan

Mayor de Blasio and wife tout new plan to send mental health workers instead of NYPD on some calls

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and his wife, first lady Chirlane McCray, have announced a new pilot program for parts of the Big Apple that will see mental health teams deployed in lieu of police officers in response to some emergency calls.

What are the details?

A news release sent out by the mayor’s office on Tuesday explained that “Mental Health Teams of Emergency Medical Services health professionals and mental health crisis workers will be dispatched through 911 to respond to mental health emergencies in two high-need communities.”

The news alert did not reveal which “high-need communities” would serve as the testing grounds for the initiative, but did explain that the “new Mental Health Teams will use their physical and mental health expertise, and experience in crisis response to de-escalate emergency situations, will help reduce the number of times police will need to respond to 911 mental health calls in these precincts.”

However, the mayor’s office noted, “In emergency situations involving a weapon or imminent risk of harm, the new Mental Health Teams will respond along with NYPD officers.”

“One in five New Yorkers struggle with a mental health condition. Now, more than ever, we must do everything we can to reach those people before crisis strikes,” de Blasio said in a statement. “For the first time in our city’s history, health responders will be the default responders for a person in crisis, making sure those struggling with mental illness receive the help they need.”

The New York Post reported that during a news conference on the project, de Blasio and McCray “revealed scant details” on the unnamed plan, and that “the pair also failed to reveal how much the project will cost or how many workers it will involve.”

What does the police union say?

Meanwhile, the union representing NYPD police officers slammed the mayor and first lady’s latest idea.

“Police officers know that we cannot single-handedly solve our city’s mental-health disaster, but this plan will not do that, either,” Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch said in a statement. “It will undoubtedly put our already overtaxed EMS colleagues in dangerous situations without police support.”

Lynch argued, “We need a complete overhaul of the rest of our mental-health-care system so that we can help people before they are in crisis, rather than just picking up the pieces afterward.”

“On that front, the de Blasio administration has done nothing but waste time and money with ThriveNYC and similar programs,” he continued, referring to the highly criticized $850 million mental health initiative ran by McCray, which will operate the pilot program.

Lynch added, “We have no confidence that this long-delayed plan will produce any better results.”

Antifa Antifa violence cops Intelwars New York City NYPD Police President Trump thin blue line Trump caravan

Far-left agitators call for death of ‘Nazi’ cops, scream at NYPD: ‘Hope all of your children get raped and killed’

Deplorable demonstrators hurled vicious slurs and made heinous remarks to the faces of NYPD officers on Saturday. Malicious members of an anti-Trump and “anti-fascist” mob wished death upon the children of police officers.

There was an anti-Trump march in Manhattan on Saturday against “racism” and fascism, where the crowd chanted: “Black lives matter!” The march was organized by the United Against Racism and Fascism NYC, a self-proclaimed “broad-based coalition in NYC opposing racism & bigotry, and united in solidarity & action against fascism.” The march was promoted by the “New York City Antifa” Twitter account.

At one point, the demonstration escalated, and the situation became physical. NYPD officers are seen detaining at least one person. The New York Post reported that three people were arrested as of 2 p.m. on Sunday.

(Content Warning: Graphic video)

Radical far-left agitators arrived and spewed extremely hateful and vile anti-cop rhetoric. “The only good cop is a dead cop,” one man screams. A woman echoes the anti-police sentiment and yells at police, adding derogatory comments about the cops’ mother and grandparents. Another man in the group calls the police “Nazi f***s.”

The woman with pink hair is seen viciously screeching at the police, “I hope all of your children get raped and killed.”

The mob chanted: “How do you spell NAZI? N-Y-P-D!”

One man challenges an NYPD officer and then meekly runs away once the cop starts heading towards him. The man nearly gets run over by an SUV as he timidly flees through an intersection.

On Saturday night, the New York City Antifa Twitter account informed its over 62,000 followers about various MAGA caravans that would be driving around New York City and New Jersey. The Antifa account even included routes that the pro-Trump car parades would take so that members of the far-left group could mobilize to disrupt the caravan.

On Sunday, Antifa members claimed that they forced the Trump caravan to alter its routes and celebrated the news.

There was a massive Trump caravan that stopped traffic on the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge.

2020 Election Election crime Election protests Election riots election violence Intelwars NYPD Police

Police departments across the nation preparing for election violence: ‘I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this in modern times’

Tensions are sky-high heading into the 2020 election, and those combustible forces will be inflamed once the winner of the presidential race is officially announced.

Businesses in major American cities have already started to board up their storefronts in anticipation of potential riots from the election. Law enforcement agencies across the country are also preparing for the worst-case scenario, which could mean widespread violence stemming from the presidential election.

“I don’t think we’ve seen ­anything like this in modern times,” Andrew Walsh, a deputy chief with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, told The Washington Post. “When you look at previous elections, there’s always been the concern when you have large crowds . . . we know [that] can be a target for someone who has an agenda.”

Walsh is concerned that the results of the race likely won’t be available on election night, which could exacerbate the already bellicose situation.

“We just don’t know how long this is going to take, or what this is going to look like, once this is over … and no matter who wins, somebody’s not going to be happy,” said Walsh, who heads the Las Vegas Police Department’s homeland security division.

The New York City Police Department said it would dispatch officers at each of the city’s 1,201 polling locations on Election Day.

“It is no secret that this election is more contentious [than] in years past,” said NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan. “For that reason … our plan also includes the ability to respond to any type of incident that may occur.”

Washington, D.C., canceled days off for police officers starting this weekend. The nation’s capital “spent $100,000 on less-than-lethal munitions and chemical irritants for riot control to replenish a stockpile depleted by clashes over the summer,” The Washington Post reports.

“It is widely believed that there will be civil unrest after the November election regardless of who wins,” said D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham. “It is also believed that there is a strong chance of unrest when Washington, D.C., hosts the inauguration in January.”

According to Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, the department has canceled all days off for its force in November.

Brown said police and emergency responders are training for “whatever scenario happens on Election Day.”

“Many cities across the country are doing similar planning,” Brown said. “We are all in conversations with our counterparts across the country about what we might expect, but everything is uncertain, and so we’re trying as best we can to anticipate any hazard that might happen, including a weather hazard, snow might happen in our city, along with anything related to protests, embedded agitators that might loot or cause violence or destroy property.”

The Boston Police Department canceled officers’ time off around the election “to provide sufficient public safety.”

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said his administration is planning for potential violence stemming from the election.

“What is kind of alarming to me is that the preparation that we’re putting into this election we’ve never had to put into an election before,” Walsh said. “I certainly wasn’t asked in 2016, ‘What’s your safety plan for Election Day?'”

Austin Police Department Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon said the department would be on “tactical alert” during the week of the election, and that every officer would be made available to respond to civil unrest.

As early as this weekend, the Texas National Guard plans to send up to 1,000 troops to five cities: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

The Beverly Hills City Council approved “an additional $4.8 million for supplemental police and security services in anticipation of the potential civil unrest around the presidential race,” including “hiring two private armed security firms,” according to the Beverly Hills Courier.

For the first time in Denver’s history, the city is establishing a police command center in preparation for potential post-election unrest.

Denver’s Public Safety Director Murphy Robinson said he is aware of two planned protests on Election Day with upwards of 2,000 people each.

A report from The Federalist states that insurgent groups against President Donald Trump have already planned Election Day turmoil to “make sure Trump leaves the White House.”

“[W]e’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way,” the group Shut Down DC said on its website. The purpose of the gathering is to “be together to process our feelings of hope, anger, fear and exhaustion as a community.”

The New Jersey Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness issued a threat assessment in September that warned about “threats from domestic extremists and foreign adversaries have emerged due to the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-government sentiment, nationwide civil unrest, and various forms of disinformation. These threats will begin to converge with the Presidential election in November in a manner not previously experienced by our nation.”

brooklyn Intelwars New York City NYPD police officers Riots Violence against police Walter wallace watch

Motorist plows through line of cops after being ordered to stop amid Brooklyn rioting — and some Twitter users rejoice

A motorist was caught on video plowing through a line of New York City police officers after being ordered to stop amid rioting in Brooklyn on Tuesday night.

What are the details?

The rioters were responding to the fatal shooting of knife-wielding Walter Wallace Jr. by Philadelphia police the night before.

Around 10 p.m., after numerous acts of vandalism and destruction, cops in riot gear ordered black-clad protesters near the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Boerum Place to disperse or face arrests, the New York Post reported.

Some rioters tried to run past officers, which led to a confrontation and close to 30 arrests, the paper said, citing sources.

And at one point near the same intersection, about eight police officers surrounded a sedan and tried to open the doors in an apparent attempt to get the driver to exit.

But nothing doing. The doors seemed to be locked, and after what sounded like several swats upon the vehicle, the motorist began driving again.

Police didn’t appreciate that very much, and amid a shouted suggestion to “break a window,” cops used their nightsticks to do just that as the sounds of shattering glass were heard.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @joemarino_

One onlooker, apparently a woman, is heard yelling at officers, “What are you doing?”

It seemed the driver had enough and sped through a line of cops on bicycles.

With that two men both blurt out, “Holy s**t!” and officers appear to try to clear the area.

Here’s the clip. (Content warning: Language):

The Post, citing sources, said one officer suffered a leg injury.

It was unclear whether the vehicle and its occupants were affiliated with the protest, the paper added.

Joe Marino of the Post tweeted a slightly shorter version of the video and said police are looking for the motorist in question.

Some Twitter users love that the driver plowed through police

While many folks were horrified by the driver’s actions, others felt quite a bit different:

  • “All cops are bastards,” one Twitter user wrote, “and by the looks of this video, they’re speed bumps, too.”
  • “I think there’s a line for this… like… don’t stand in the road if you don’t wanna get hit by a car??” the same user wondered. “Is that the one?”
  • “Good!” another Twitter user reacted before offering the initials for “All Cops Are Bastards.”
  • “Boom bitch,” another commenter wrote.
  • “Good!” yet another user said. “Get out the f***ing streets jackasses. Didn’t they see the dumb cop in Philly get plowed over by a pickup truck, yet they’ll never learn.”
  • “More of this please,” another commenter wrote. “Stupid bitch cops shouldn’t be in the road!!”
  • “Well it is illegal to block roads,” another user said.

fatal shooting homeless man Intelwars New York City NYPD Off-duty cop police officer

Angry homeless man opens fire in New York City deli, kills customer. But off-duty cop is in store, too — and tackles, detains shooter.

An angry homeless man who had just been kicked out of a deli in Queens, New York, on Monday returned to the store and opened fire, fatally shooting a customer, police
told the New York Daily News.

What are the details?

Steven Cohen, 63, lives out of his blue Honda Odyssey, the paper said, and he was at the store in Ozone Park to buy lottery tickets but was acting disorderly.

Mohmediyan Tarwala, 26, helped a worker escort Cohen out of the Cross Bay Express Deli, the Daily News said.

But Cohen returned around 6:15 p.m., opened the door, and opened fire, the paper said, hitting Tarwala twice in the stomach. Cohen then turned the gun on the clerk but lowered it after seeing the plexiglass barrier at the counter, sources told the Daily News.

The accused shooter took off, but New York City Police Officer Jason Maharaj — who was off duty and in the store — followed the suspect outside, wrestled him to the ground, and grabbed the gun, police told the paper.

Police recovered a Colt .45 handgun at the scene, sources told the New York Post.

Medics rushed Tarwala to Jamaica Hospital, but he could not be saved, the Daily News said.

Anything else?

Just prior to the shooting, Cohen entered another store, Beer Town, across the street, and told the clerk to call 911, the Daily News said.

“He seemed like he was in the middle of a medical emergency,” Beer Town clerk Chris Hanlon told the paper. “He then just walked away.”

Cohen is charged with murder, attempted murder, and criminal use of a firearm, the Daily News said.

Officer Maharaj is from the 77th Precinct and has been with the NYPD for two years, the Post reported.

What did folks have to say about the off-duty officer?

Commenters on the NYPD News page on Twitter praised the off-duty officer for stepping up.

“Great job!! So you think a social worker would have had the balls to do that?” one commenter asked. “Still want to get rid of police? GOD BLESS THE MEN & WOMEN OF THE NYPD!!”

“God bless our police!!! Never listen to the idiots out there. Mature sensible people appreciate and support you,” another commenter said.

Although one quipped that “the officer will be suspended for assaulting the criminal because he tackled him!”

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protests BLM Intelwars NYPD Police Union

NYPD union attacks city leadership’s ‘double standard’ for suspending ‘Trump 2020’ cop but praising chief for kneeling with BLM protesters

New York City leaders were enraged over the weekend after an NYPD officer declared “Trump 2020” over his patrol car loudspeaker multiple times Saturday night and told the public they would find and deal with him.

Now that NYPD officials have suspended the officer, the police union is ripping city and police leadership for their actions, declaring the move to be a blatant double standard, the New York Post reported.

What happened?

After video of the cop’s actions went viral, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) vowed to find and take action against the offending officer, saying, “Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences. We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated.”

NYPD officials also said they were investigating the incident, and Chief of Department Terence Monahan promised the cop in question would “be dealt with.”

According to the Post, police sources identified the officer as Arthur Becerra of the 70th Precinct, and he was suspended without pay Sunday.

What did the union say?

The Sergeants Benevolent Association went after NYPD and city leadership, accusing them of a “double standard” since the officials who declared a political statement by law enforcement to be “one hundred percent unacceptable” had only praise for Chief Monahan when he took a knee with Black Lives Matter protesters.

“The NYPD has a history of officers making political & outside the norm statements & ignoring it,” the SBA tweeted. “Suspending, this officer is unnecessary & way over the top. Chief of Departrnent [sic] took a knee with protestors no disciplinary action was issued. What if the officer supported Biden?”

After the NYPD reported that the officer who had shouted “Trump 2020” had been immediately suspended without pay, the SBA responded, “What’s the status of this investigation? Oh wait double standard white shirt immunity!” — referring to Monahan’s BLM protest photo.

Then the union had a direct comment for Monahan himself, saying that his … manhood … was under the control of Mayor de Blasio.

“Terence you said nothing when Captains & Chiefs took a knee with violent protesters who injured members of the NYPD,” the SBA tweeted. “You say nothing to those who sing & dance in uniform. Now your little itsy-bitsy balls are in DeBlasio’s [sic] palm & you tweet nonsense. Relax & take a knee!”

‘Trump 2020’: Mayor Bill de Blasio vows swift action against NYPD officer caught praising Trump

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is promising swift action against a New York City police officer who was caught on camera saying “Trump 2020.”

What are the details?

Multiple videos uploaded to social media showed a NYPD officer say “Trump 2020” over the loudspeaker in his patrol car while two additional NYPD officers conversed outside the vehicle.

The incident happened in Brooklyn Saturday night.

“Do it again. What? You can’t say ‘Trump 2020’ now, you f***ing p****?” the man behind the camera in the first video said. “Say it again.”

When the officer repeated the phrase, the cameraman responded, “Go f*** yourself you f***ing fascist.”

Another video uploaded to Twitter captured the incident from a different angle. The video, taken from the window of a nearby apartment, showed what happened after the first video ended.

“Trump 2020. Put it on YouTube, put it on Facebook. Trump 2020,” the NYPD officer said over the loudspeaker. “Take a picture, take a picture, take a video, put it on your Facebook, put it on YouTube. Have some fun.”

What was the reaction?

Enraged city leaders, including the mayor, are vowing action against the officer, and the NYPD said they are investigating the incident.

According to the New York Post, “NYPD strictly forbids officers from expressing political views or endorsing candidates.”

In response, de Blasio promised New York City residents that the city would take immediate action against the police officer.

“Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences. We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated,” de Blasio said.

Top NYPD brass also scolded the officer.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said, “One hundred percent unacceptable. Period. Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs. It is essential for New Yorkers to trust their Police. Updates to follow after initial investigation.”

Chief of Department Terence Monahan added, “When you wear our uniform it is imperative to remain apolitical. Behavior like this will not be tolerated and will be dealt with.”

Chinese government Intelwars NYPD Officer Reservist spying

NYPD officer arrested, charged with spying for Chinese government

A New York City police officer and U.S. Army reservist was arrested on Monday, accused of spying on behalf of the Chinese government for the past several years.

What are the details?

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced that Officer Baimadajie Angwang, 33, was arrested for “acting as an illegal agent of the People’s Republic of China as well as committing wire fraud, making false statements and obstructing an official proceeding.”

Federal authorities claim that Angwang, a naturalized U.S. citizen and ethnic Tibetan native to China, “allegedly acted at the direction and control of officials at the PRC Consulate in New York City” since “at least 2014,” using his position to spy at the behest of China while serving at the NYPD’s community affairs unit.

CNBC reported that Angwang was born in the autonomous region of Tibet, and used his position as an officer to report back to Chinese officials “on the activities of other ethnic Tibetans in the New York area.”

The New York Post reported that according to court documents, Angwang “stated that his motivation to be promoted in the NYPD was to assist the PRC and bring “glory to China,” and that if he was not able to be promoted within the department, “he stated that ‘he might as well be a government employee in China.'”

Officer accused of lying on military form

Angwang is also accused of lying in order to obtain secret clearance as a member of the military.

The Department of Justice news release noted:

As part of his employment with the U.S. Army Reserve, Angwang maintained a “SECRET”-level security clearance. According to court documents, in 2019, Angwang completed and electronically submitted an SF-86C form for a background investigation. On the form, Angwang lied by denying that he had contacts with a foreign government or its consulate and by denying that he had close and continuing contacts with foreign nationals, including his family members who live in the PRC, some of whom are affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army.

“The defendant allegedly violated the trust of his community and the New York City Police Department on behalf of a foreign power, the People’s Republic of China,” Assistant FBI Director Alan E. Kohler said in a statement. “This type of conduct simply cannot be tolerated. This case serves as yet another reminder that China represents the biggest counterintelligence threat to the United States and that the FBI and our partners will be aggressive in investigating and stopping such activities within our nation.”

If convicted on all charges, Angwang could face 55 years in federal prison.

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter arrests Black lives matter protests BLM Blm protests Intelwars NYPD Protests

Black Lives Matter and NYPD clash after protest stops traffic on George Washington Bridge: ‘We shut s*** down!’

A Black Lives Matter protest shut down the upper level of the George Washington Bridge on Saturday. BLM supporters and NYPD clashed as police attempted to unblock the George Washington Bridge after traffic was ground to a halt.

For about an hour on Saturday night, Black Lives Matter demonstrators marched across the George Washington Bridge to the 34th precinct station house in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood. About 100 protesters blocked all cars and trucks from passing. The crowd boasted that they were on the bridge to “shut s*** down!”

Agitators used construction cones to block cars from driving on the George Washington Bridge.

Hawk Newsome, leader of the Greater New York chapter of Black Lives Matter, said they shut down the bridge “for our Sisters and Brothers who had their lives stolen by AmeriKKKa.”

Newsome added that three BLM agitators were arrested during the demonstration, and urged his followers on social media to call the 34th precinct for their release. “FREE THE TEAM!!! Pigs at the 34th are not picking up the phone. CALL UNTIL THEY DO FREE,” he wrote. Newsome boasted “our city” during the shutdown of the bridge.

“Look how much power we had. We sat on the bridge for 20 minutes. We shut the whole city down,” one protester bragged, according to the New York Post.

Nearly 300,000 vehicles used the George Washington Bridge in 2016, a double-deck suspension bridge that connects New York City with New Jersey.

After crossing the bridge, tensions between the BLM protesters and NYPD cops flared outside the 34th precinct in Manhattan. Several people were arrested during the protest in New York City.

Some protesters then set their sights on New York City diners. “Sorry to interrupt your dinner, it’s a revolution,” one demonstrator said to people dining on Saturday night in NYC. Last week, violent Black Lives Matter protesters vowed to prevent diners from eating at outdoor restaurants in Rochester and Pittsburgh.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gave an interview to BlazeTV’s Steven Crowder last week, where he suggested that the riots erupting in American cities are likely a coordinated effort funded by corporate America.

“We’re seeing these people … some of the same people are in Portland, Kenosha, D.C., Louisville,” Paul said. “How are they getting there? They’re staying at the [Willard Hotel] — the Willard Hotel might be $500 to $1,000 a night — who’s paying for them to stay in the Willard Hotel? Who’s paying for them to have air flight? Who’s paying them to do this?”

“And here’s the sad truth of it,” he explained. “It’s probably not going to be a sinister name like George Soros, it’s going to be corporate America.”

“Corporate America is giving money to Black Lives Matter, and my guess is, if we follow the money, the people who paid for the plane tickets and the hotels and the people who continue to do this, is Black Lives Matter,” Paul continued. “People should not be giving money to a group that is then funding thuggery.”

Paul advocated that instead of funding Black Lives Matter, people should consider giving their money to the United Negro College Fund or the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

VIDEO: NYC firefighters chase down thug who sucker-punched 60-year-old woman in front of their station

A Brooklyn bicyclist apparently thought it would be fun to sucker-punch and knock down a 60-year-old woman he was passing on a sidewalk late last month.


Image source: YouTube screenshot


Image source: YouTube screenshot

It’s possible he could’ve pedaled away with no immediate consequences — except the thug had the bright idea of doing the deed right in front of the Engine 214/Ladder 111 fire station.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

And the firefighters apparently saw the whole thing, got plenty mad, and ran after him.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

Video shows the firefighters caught up to the bicyclist around a corner and took him down to the sidewalk.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

The firefighters stayed with the suspect until police arrived and took him away in handcuffs as a crowd watched, WCBS-TV reported.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

Who is the suspect?

The NYPD identified the suspect as 53-year-old Daniel Biggs, the station said, adding that police said he has 18 prior arrests, from robbery to assault, and that the most recent was Aug. 2 after he allegedly slashed a 26-year-old man’s face.

What’s more, during the Aug. 26 incident, while he was being restrained Biggs punched a 29-year-old firefighter in the eye causing bruising and swelling, police told WCBS.

Biggs, of Brooklyn, was charged with assault, menacing, harassment, and attempted assault, the New York Post said. He was arraigned the following day, ordered held on $20,000, but was released without bail after a return court appearance four days later, the paper said, citing court records.

The suspect appears to be a recognizable face in the community, the station said. “He comes, buys his stuff and leaves. That’s it. I was like why he did it?” Twin Alzokari of nearby J&A Deli and Grocery told WCBS.

Police said the victim suffered a cut on the mouth but refused medical attention at the scene, the station reported, adding that the suspect and victim were strangers and that the motive for the attack is unclear.

“It’s bad. You can’t hit a woman,” Alzokari added to WCBS. “She’s very nice, the whole family. I grew up with them.”

And he told the station the firefighters are an asset to the neighborhood.

“You feel safe. They’re always helping the community, and that’s a very, very good job what they did,” he said.

Intelwars New York City NYPD Rape violent crime

Horrifying video shows man attempting to rape women in broad daylight on NYC subway platform

New York City police are frantically searching for a suspect who was caught on camera attempting to rape a woman in broad daylight.

What are the details?

The heinous incident happened Saturday around 11 a.m. on an Upper East Side subway platform. According to WNBC-TV, the 25-year-old victim was waiting for her train when a man shoved her to the ground and began assaulting her.

Police said the man attempted to rape her in broad daylight, and only stopped when a crowd of bystanders confronted him. The witnesses, however, did not directly intervene; one man was seen in a video of the incident just staring in the direction of the suspect and victim.

Video shows the man get off the woman, pick up his sunglasses, turn toward the bystanders and mouth several words. It is not clear what the suspect said because the video released by the NYPD did not contain audio.

The victim suffered minor injuries, but refused medical assistance, police said.

The suspect, a black male with an afro and facial hair, fled the scene. Police are asking that anyone with information about the brazen attack to come forward or call 800-577-TIPS.

(Content Warning: The following video is extremely graphic):

Abbey Collins, a spokesperson for the MTA, told WNBC, “This is disturbing and disgraceful. No one should ever have to experience this type of horrific attack in the transit system. The MTA is working closely with the NYPD to find the suspect and hold him accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

What’s the background?

Amid the coronavirus pandemic and unrest in cities across America, New York City has been experiencing a record-setting crime wave this summer. Violence crime is up across the city, but shootings and homicides are experiencing the greatest year-over-year increase.

City leaders have responded by further slashing the police budget — not imposing law and order.

“We are reducing the size of our police force by not having the next recruit class. We are reducing our overtime levels. We’re shifting functions away from police to civilian agencies,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in July, NPR reported.

“We think it’s the right thing to do. It will take work,” he added. “It will take effort and we’re going to be reforming that work in the meantime.”

Following the tragic death of George Floyd, progressive activists across the country called for police agencies to be defunded. Progressive leaders like de Blasio have responded by mostly obliging activist demands.

VIDEO: Driver attacks NYPD traffic cops after being asked to move car away from fire hydrant

A driver attacked two NYPD traffic safety agents after they asked him to move his car away from a fire hydrant in the Bronx, according to the NYPD.

Around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, two traffic cops approached the motorist and asked the man to move his 2008 silver Nissan Altima away from a fire hydrant in Fordham Heights because it was illegally parked. The man allegedly became enraged and started punching the two officers. The man knocked both officers to the ground with his vicious punches, and then drove away.

One officer suffered a bruised face and a sprained ankle, and the other agent also had bruising on his face. They were taken to a nearby hospital to have their injuries treated.

Adams Mandiata, one of the cops involved in the brawl, recounted the brawl. “I was backing up, backing up. He just punched my left eye so hard,” Mandiata told the New York Post. “I feel down. I couldn’t see anything.”

“This happens to traffic agents on the regular,” the other officer, Edwyn Stuart, who is an 11-year veteran, said. “Our job is a dangerous job.”

Both agents said that New York’s bail reform law that went into effect this year has emboldened criminals.

The driver is described as black, about 6-feet tall and weighing 200 pounds. He was seen wearing a white T-shirt, black and white sweat pants, and black and white sneakers in the video.

Anyone with information regarding the attack is asked to contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

On Friday afternoon, two more traffic agents were assaulted. The traffic cops were attempting to issue a summons when a driver began fighting with them. One of the agents was punched in the face and the other sustained a hand injury, according to WPIX-TV.

Violent crime has increased over the summer in the Big Apple. There has been a 200% increase in New York City shootings between June 15 and July 2 of this year, compared to the same time in 2019.

In July, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) hypothesized that the “uptick in crime” in New York City is because of “record unemployment in the United States.”

AOC also theorized that New Yorkers are desperate for bread.

“Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money so you… maybe have to… they’re put in a position… they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”

2020 Election 2020 presidential election BLM Blm protest Donald Trump Intelwars NYPD Police Police Union

VIDEO: BLM protesters march to NYPD union president’s house to protest union’s Trump endorsement. They’re met by a swarm of cops.

When the New York Police Department union endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election late last week, the Black Lives Matter movement was not happy about it. So dozens of BLM protesters decided to protest at the home of the union’s president, and they were met there by a slew of New York City cops and their barricades to protect the block.

What happened?

On Friday, New York City Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch announced the union’s endorsement of Trump, the New York Post reported.

As the city faces riots, looting, shootings, and other crimes, as well as public clashes with police, the union decided the president’s increased push for law and order is something it needed to get behind.

“I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the president of the United States until now — that’s how important this is,” Lynch told the president at an event Friday evening, the Post said. “We need your strong voice across the country.”

The union’s proclamation upset the BLM movement, which attempted to march to Lynch’s house in Queens Wednesday evening, the Post said.

As protesters worked to get to Lynch’s home, a swarm of NYPD officers set up barricades blocking off the neighborhood.

Multiple videos from the protests and the police’s response show dozens of cops and supervisors standing in the street to keep demonstrators from marching all over Lynch’s community.

Protesters can be heard chanting “all cops are bastards” and “NYPD, suck my d**k.”

Content warning: Rough language

Despite the protests, Lynch was undeterred in his and his union’s support for President Trump.

“New York City police officers will protect your right to protest wherever it can be done safely and legally, including in front of my house,” Lynch said in a statement, NY1 reported. “But these protestors should realize they are wasting their time. Their campaign of harassment and intimidation might have the politicians running scared, but it will have zero impact on the PBA.”

NY1 reported that Lynch’s neighbors said the protest, which they characterized as mostly peaceful, caught them by surprise and involved vulgar language.

Intelwars New york city violence NYPD Physical attack retired police officer watch

Retired NYPD sergeant beaten with over a dozen punches to head in video caught in broad daylight

A retired New York City police sergeant was knocked to the ground and suffered over a dozen punches to the head in a brutal attack caught on surveillance video Tuesday morning in Manhattan, the New York Post reported, citing police sources.

What are the details?

The former sergeant was seen speaking with the attacker for at least a minute outside a Garment District deli on West 39th Street, the paper said of the obtained clip.

The suspect — whom police sources identified as 20-year-old Masterjadin Roman — then allegedly throws what appears to be a bottle at the retired officer, the Post said.

With that, the retired officer charges at Roman:

Image source: New York Post video screenshot

But to no avail, as the attacker easily lifts him up and slams him to the sidewalk:

Image source: New York Post video screenshot

And then the beating begins, as the suspect then quickly lands over a dozen punches to the retired sergeant’s head.

Image source: New York Post video screenshot

After the punching ceases, Roman and his companion appear to steal a cellphone and headphones from the former cop and begin to walk away, the paper said.

But apparently that wasn’t enough.

The retired sergeant is seen trying to get up from the sidewalk as another man emerges from behind to help him, and the attacker turns his head, walks back to the victim, and kicks him in the head.

Image source: New York Post video screenshot

The Post said it’s not immediately clear what sparked the violence, but police sources told the paper Roman has been accused of aggressive panhandling and given a desk appearance ticket.

As is common with such incidents, a number of people were nearby when the attack took place and made no effort to intervene.

Anything else?

Violence against the NYPD has been on the rise since George Floyd’s death in the custody of Minneapolis police in late May, which led to nationwide protests and riots:

  • A frequent participant in Occupy City Hall protests in New York City was caught on surveillance video in July allegedly trying to cut the brake lines of a police van in Brooklyn.
  • NYPD officers were physically attacked on the Brooklyn Bridge by Occupy City Hall protesters in July, leaving one officer with multiple fractures of his orbital bones and cuts needing 12 stitches. And when NYPD Chief of Department Terrance Monahan intervened, the department’s highest-ranking uniformed officer was punched in the face, too, court documents said.
  • And cellphone video caught the moment an NYPD cop fought a gang member who apparently was interfering in an arrest. The gang member allegedly put the officer in a headlock — and then the taunting began: “You just got smoked, p***y!”

Official NYPD crime stats indicate 49 shootings took place in the city between July 7 and July 12, nearly a 277% increase compared to the 13 incidents that occurred over the same period in 2019. According to the NYPD, this past June was the deadliest and most violent June in 24 years, totaling 205 shooting incidents.

In fact, the owner of a New York City tactical shop said body armor sales are up 80% over 2019 due to the spike in violence this year.

Alexandria ocasio-cortez arrest Bill de Blasio Chris Hayes Intelwars New York City NYPD Protesters watch

AOC, Chris Hayes screech over video of cops wrestling person into unmarked van — but it was an official NYPD operation

Life apparently came to an end Tuesday when an individual was tackled to a New York City street and pulled into an unmarked van as NYPD officers appeared and kept outraged protesters away from the scene.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes called it a “kidnapping”:

Outspoken Democratic U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was wringing her hands about it, too, tweeting that “our civil liberties are on the brink,” and that it’s “our responsibility to resist authoritarianism”:

What actually went down?

Thing is, the individual was taken into custody for allegedly damaging police cameras during five separate incidents in and around City Hall Park, NYPD officials
told WPIX-TV. Police told the station that arresting officers were assaulted with rocks and bottles, too.

Police charged Nicholas Stone with criminal mischief, WPIX said, but friends said the 18-year-old — a transgender woman — goes by Nikki. Cops added to the station that Stone was released with a desk appearance ticket.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

As it happens, NBC News correspondent Tom Winter — whose specialty is police and counter-terrorism — gave colleague Hayes a bit of a wake-up call regarding the street scoop:

“It could also be undercover detectives from a warrant squad making an arrest with probable cause for someone wanted for 5 specific crimes wearing visible weapons and vests in a car immediately surrounded by uniformed police officers with NYPD written on the back,” Winter wrote.

And Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison tweeted video Wednesday morning purportedly showing the suspect damaging NYPD cameras on at least three separate occasions, WPIX said.

“The #NYPD welcomes peaceful protests,” Harrison tweeted. “However, damage to NYPD technology that helps keep this city safe will never be tolerated. These cameras are vital resources which help prevent and solve crimes throughout the city.”

Ed Morrissey of
HotAir offered the following take:

The tactics used in making this arrest are not all that unusual — and to the extent they are, those are forced on the NYPD in the circumstances of the unrest. People with warrants out who aren’t inclined to turn themselves in watch for uniformed police to avoid arrest. Some police departments use warrant squads in plainclothes and unmarked cars in order to execute warrants more successfully. They go to residences, places of work, and at times to places where suspects are known to hang out in order to serve the warrants and arrest the suspects.

The fact that this woman was apparently known to be in protest crowds required a different set of tactics. To keep the officers safe, they had to arrest her quickly and get her into the vehicle before other protesters could assault them. To walk up and announce themselves and try to make an arrest would invite mob action and prevent the arrest — and in this case, mob action nearly succeeded anyway. That is why they had uniformed backup, and that turned out to be a very wise choice.

Still, WPIX said critics compared it to arrests in Portland, where federal agents were caught on video putting demonstrators in unmarked vehicles and driving off.

Mayor Bill de Blasio told the station that no federal agents were involved, but that it was “the wrong time and the wrong place to effectuate that arrest.”

“I’ll talk to the commissioner more about this today, but I think there’s a better way to get that done,” he added, according to WPIX.

anti-police Intelwars Leftists New York City NYPD Protesters watch

NYPD cop orders screaming leftist to ‘back up!’ She jumps right in his face and yells, ‘or f***ing what?’ Police show her what.

In our latest installment of Leftists Losing Their Minds, we find a woman screaming at a group of New York City police officers in the middle of a street. It isn’t clear from the video what brought about her decidedly vitriolic display or when it occurred, but suffice it to say she doesn’t appear to be a fan of the Big Apple’s finest.

After unleashing a torrent of F-bombs at the group of more than 10 officers, she orders them not to tell her to “f***ing back up!”

Image source: Twitter video screenshot

Well, that apparently was too much for one of the officers to let slide without challenging her, so he told her to do exactly what she commanded them not to do: He calmly replied, “Back up.”

Introducing ‘The Or F***ing What Shuffle’

Ah, but our heroine came with a plan — and maybe a new dance move. Let’s dub it the “Or F***ing What Shuffle.”

That’s because upon hearing the officer’s retort, the enraged woman moved toward the offending cop, timing her first two steps with her holler of two words back at him — along with one final hop and one screamed word to polish it off. “Or … f***ing … what?” she yelled while apparently standing right in the officer’s face.

Can you see it now? Two steps toward your partner … then one big hop as you end up in each others’ faces and yell, “Or f***ing what?” It’ll be a sensation.

But the cops have a dance of their own

It isn’t clear from the clip what the woman did after getting in the officer’s face or if she made physical contact with him or other cops, but she was shoved backward — and then it was on. As she raised her hands and got combative, other officers stepped in and began restraining her as she screamed some more.

Image source: Twitter video screenshot

Others in the crowd couldn’t believe their eyes as she was taken away. One called the officers “f***ing animals!” while another asked, “Are you serious?”

Anything else?

The NYPD has been assailed from many leftward angles of late:

  • A frequent participant in Occupy City Hall protests in New York City was caught on surveillance video earlier this month allegedly trying to cut the brake lines of a police van in Brooklyn.
  • NYPD officers were physically attacked on the Brooklyn Bridge last week by Occupy City Hall protesters, leaving one officer with multiple fractures of his orbital bones and cuts needing 12 stitches. And when NYPD Chief of Department Terrance Monahan intervened, the department’s highest-ranking uniformed officer was punched in the face, too, court documents said.
  • And cellphone video caught the moment an NYPD cop fought a gang member who apparently was interfering in an arrest. The gang member allegedly put the officer in a headlock — and then the taunting began: “You just got smoked, p***y!”

Surveillance video captures mob brutally beating a father and his daughter inside a NYC bodega

Surveillance video captured a brutal beating of a father and his stepdaughter by an angry mob, seemingly for no reason, inside a bodega in New York City.

The video showed a mob attacking the woman and her stepfather at a Washington Heights deli on July 7. At one point the 41-year-old man was knocked unconscious from the vicious blows he received. Later in the video one person grabbed a beer bottle to beat the woman on the head.

A bystander told the NYPD that her phone was also stolen by the mob when she tried to call the police, according to the New York Post.

Later the stepfather and his 22-year-old daughter spoke to WLNY-TV.

“Came out of nowhere,” she said.

The victim said she was stunned by the video because she had blacked out the events.

“I feel shocked,” she said. “I blacked out because after… You have anxiety and you get nervous, you don’t really remember stuff.”

She told WLNY that she was walking to the deli when the group began harassing her and accusing her of trying to contact one of their girlfriends. When she rushed into the bodega to avoid the mob, they attacked her.

“I got hit in my face, my head, my face, my neck,” she said.

She says her stepfather saw her being attacked and rushed to protect her. That’s when the mob turned on him and beat him unconscious.

“I thought they killed him. I thought he died. I saw him on the floor,” she said.

The man spent two days in the hospital and said that he was still suffering from pain in his face.

“He doesn’t come outside, just relaxing, resting,” his daughter said.

Police are asking for help from the public in finding at least six suspects, all in their 20s, from the attack. Three suspects have been identified by police as 22-year-old Tyquan Dupont, 21-year-old Devonte Phillips, and 26-year-old Tyrone Lawrence.

Here’s a local news report about the vicious attack:

Bill de Blasio Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protesters Intelwars New York City NYPD Police thin blue line

Anti-de Blasio artist hangs banner over highway during rush hour showing NYC mayor hoisting Lady Liberty’s bloody severed head

No one will ever confuse Staten Island artist Scott LoBaido for a Bill de Blasio fan — especially not after Tuesday’s events.

LoBaido made his thoughts on the New York City mayor quite clear with a banner he revealed during the afternoon rush hour.

What was on the banner?

The artist’s banner depicted Hizzoner smiling while wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt and hoisting the bloody severed head of Lady Liberty.

He first unfurled the artwork publicly over the busy Staten Island Expressway hoping to “fire up the masses,” the New York Post reported.


Image source: New York Post video screenshot

LoBaido told the paper that he is none too thrilled with what Mayor de Blasio is doing to Gotham.

Noting the image of the head of the Statue of Liberty dripping blood, LoBaido told the Post, “It’s what he’s doing to New York, he’s severing the head of the greatest city on earth.”

He said the reason he finally decided to put paint to fabric was because of de Blasio’s oft-criticized lame response to the violent Black Lives Matter protests and riots in New York City combined with his ongoing spat with and perceived mistreatment of the New York Police Department.

According to LoBaido, the mayor’s policies and ongoing disrespect for cops, first responders, and average New Yorkers have make the Big Apple a “s**thole.”

“New York has turned into a s**thole because of this guy,” he said, according to the Post. “He hates the true New Yorkers: police officers, firefighters … people who built this city.”

Cops told LoBaido to take the banner down an hour or two after it was hung, the artist said, adding that he plans to hang the image in various places around the city down the road.

The banner wasn’t LoBaido’s only form of visual protest against de Blasio’s actions. On Monday, he painted a blue line in front of Staten Island’s 122nd Precinct in support of police, the Post said.

“That thin blue line separates anarchy from civilization,” the artist told the paper.

Shortly after the pro-cop image was finished, someone defaced it with Black Lives Matter graffiti, according to the Post.

Intelwars leftist violence New York City NYPD SABOTAGE Violence against police watch

Leftist thug caught on video allegedly trying to cut brake lines on NYPD vehicle. He doesn’t get far.

A frequent participant in Occupy City Hall protests in New York City was caught on surveillance video Friday afternoon allegedly trying to cut the brake lines of a police van in Brooklyn, authorities
told the New York Daily News.

An NYPD detective told the paper he spotted Jeremy Trapp moving under a marked NYPD van parked on Fourth Avenue near 43rd Street in Sunset Park about 4 p.m. and recovered a pair of scissors from him.


Image source: WNBC-TV video screenshot

As it happens, the wrong wire was cut, authorities told the Daily News. The 24-year-old suspect allegedly cut the line that measures wheel speed, the paper said, citing court documents.

Numerous charges were leveled against Trapp, including reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, criminal tampering, auto stripping, and obstructing governmental administration, the Daily News said.

But as with many other arrestees in the Big Apple this year, Trap was released without bail the day after his arrest, the paper said, adding that he’s due back in court in December.

Trapp is an Occupy City Hall protester, police sources told the Daily News.
WNBC-TV reported that he’s been seen coming and going from the protests in recent weeks, officials said. The group has been camped in City Hall Park around the clock for weeks demanding the defunding of the NYPD, the paper said.

Anything else?

The incident is the latest in what’s becoming a troubling anti-police environment, officials told the station, adding that police vehicles have been firebombed, lug nuts have been loosened on their vehicles, and officers have been assaulted.

In fact, officers were physically attacked on the Brooklyn Bridge last week by Occupy City Hall protesters.

Quran Campbell, 25, allegedly punched Lt. Richard Mack of the in the face during the dust-up, the Daily News said. Mack suffered multiple fractures of his orbital bones and cuts needing 12 stitches, the paper said, citing prosecutors’ statements at Campbell’s Thursday arraignment.

And after NYPD Chief of Department Terrance Monahan intervened, court documents said the department’s highest-ranking uniformed officer was punched in the face, too, the Daily News reported.

While Campbell was charged with felony assault, he was freed without bail under supervised release, the paper said.

Chanice Reyes also was charged with felony assault for allegedly walloping an NYPD sergeant and lieutenant with a cane, the Daily News said.

Attacks on police brooklyn Brooklyn bridge Brooklyn bridge attack Intelwars NYPD Richard mack Terence monahan

Suspect accused of attack on NYPD chief released from jail without bail

A Bronx man who allegedly punched NYPD Chief Terence Monahan and two other police officers during a protest that turned violent has been released from jail without bail. A senior New York City police official reportedly called the release “stunning.”

A bloody brawl broke out on the Brooklyn Bridge between violent protesters and New York City Police Department officers on Wednesday.

During the melee, eight officers were injured, including a sergeant, lieutenant, and Chief of Department Terence Monahan, who is the NYPD’s highest-ranking uniformed officer. One police officer lost consciousness during the incident.

Lieutenant Richard Mack, of the department’s Strategic Response Group, was struck several times in the face during the fracas. The suspects reportedly broke both of Mack’s orbital bones, and he was taken to the hospital, where he required 12 stitches on his face.

Quran Campbell, 25, and Banks Shaborn, 25, are accused of physically assaulting Mack, Monahan, and another officer. On Thursday night, Campbell was arraigned on assault charges in Manhattan criminal court and was released without bail.

“Quran Campbell is captured on video for the nation to witness him viciously assault 3 cops in uniform – 1 who lost consciousness. Judge Robert Rosenthal’s reckless decision to release Mr. Campbell WITHOUT BAIL endangers every NYer and the officers who risk it all to protect them,” Monahan tweeted on Friday morning. “My thanks to the @ManhattanDA’s Office for recognizing the seriousness and strength of this case by requesting $75,000 bail.”

Police said they found a Taser in Shaborn’s pocket and a folding knife in his shoe. Shaborn, who faces assault and criminal possession charges, was being held on $10,000 bail.

Chanice Reyes, 24, was arrested around 5 a.m. on Thursday after cops investigated a strong smell of marijuana coming from a car parked near City Hall, where activists have been gathering in recent weeks. Reyes, who is from New Jersey, is a suspect in the Brooklyn Bridge attack. Authorities believe Reyes is the woman dressed in red who smashes an officer in the head with a cane.

She reportedly attempted to bite one of the officers on the head while being taken into custody. Reyes was taken to Bellevue Hospital for a psychological evaluation after saying that she wanted to kill herself. Reyes was charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer.

There were 37 people arrested during Wednesday’s Brooklyn Bridge demonstration.

“They are part of this anarchist group that has been infiltrating this Black Lives movement since the beginning,” Monahan said of the violent members of the protests during an appearance on “Good Day New York.” “This is what we dealt with since the first protest after George Floyd. It is a legitimate movement, but it is being hijacked by these anarchists, and they are the ones that have been attacking our police officers [and] are out hiding behind the many, many peaceful protesters that are out there.”

Monahan said the morale among NYPD officers is “as low as it’s been in a long time.”

“On the street corners, there is a feeling that they don’t have to listen to the police and that they’re willing to fight the police officers,” he said on Fox News.

“It is important that we as an agency tell them how much we appreciate them, how much we know they’re out there, the trouble that they’re dealing with on the street,” Monahan said. “But more importantly, the silent majority that’s out there, the community that is out there that supports our police officers, that know the job they do. They know the times they ran into a burning building to save a life. They know the times that they saved the life of a choking baby, of a cardiac victim, how often they’ve run into gunfire to save people. These are the men and women that you’re hearing others put down on a regular basis.”

On June 1, Monahan was at a George Floyd protest and joined protesters in taking a knee against police brutality.

Body camera video Bodycam video Intelwars Joseph troiano NYPD Nypd video police brutality

Bodycam video shows NYPD cop punching, choking, and macing homeless man

Body camera video shows an NYPD officer punching, choking, and macing a homeless man. The man was physically thrown out of a nearly empty New York City subway car for allegedly taking up more than one seat.

Bodycam footage of an aggressive arrest that was recorded in late May was made public on Wednesday by the Legal Aid Society. At approximately 12:30 a.m. on May 25, Joseph Troiano was told to exit a New York City subway car by NYPD officers. Troiano, 30, left the subway car and relocated to the neighboring one.

The NYPD cops followed Troiano into the other car of the No. 6 train heading to Brooklyn. “Step off or I gotta drag you off,” Officer Shimul Saha is heard telling Troiano.

According to a criminal complaint, the police approached Troiano because he was “occupying more than one seat.” The video, which was edited by the Legal Aid Society, shows that the subway car was nearly empty.

“You can’t arrest me for not wanting to get off of the train,” Troiano replies to the police officers.

NYPD Officer Adonis Long attempts to physically remove Troiano, and the man bats away the cop’s hand. Officer Long attempts to pull Troiano out of the seat, and he resists. Then Long punches Troiano twice in the face.

Troiano is physically thrown out of the subway car and falls to the ground on the subway platform. Troiano is ordered to sit on the floor by police. After he does not comply, Long is seen pepper-spraying Troiano in the face at close proximity.

Troiano is crying and screaming, “Stop!” Police officers attempt to handcuff Troiano, but he resists. While trying to pin Troiano to the ground, Officer Long is seen choking the man.

The officers finally handcuff Troiano. “I’m having a panic attack, please,” he tells the cops. The officers tell him to “relax.” EMTs arrive at the scene of the arrest and transport him to Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Troiano was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and second-degree assault, which is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance originally pushed for the felony charge because the criminal complaint stated that Long “sustained swelling and substantial pain to the knuckles of his right hand and was transported to the hospital” after he was allegedly kicked by Troiano.

“He informs me that because of the swelling he is unable to open and close his hand without experiencing pain,” Officer Saha wrote in his police report.

The felony charge was dismissed this week after the case made headlines.

“Up until yesterday, the DA’s office fully intended to prosecute this case as a felony. It’s shameful that it takes a bad headline for Vance and his ADA’s to finally do right by our vulnerable clients,” said Edda Ness of the Legal Aid Society, who is representing Troiano. “We demand that DA Vance immediately dismiss all charges pending against Joseph.”

Troiano’s lawyer pointed out that Officer Long’s right hand may have been injured from punching the homeless man. “If you look at the video, and see the way he punches Joseph, then perhaps he got the injury that way,” Ness said.

The DA’s office said that it is investigating possible police misconduct.

“We are reviewing the footage and continuing to investigate all aspects of this interaction,” said Caitlyn Fowles, a spokesperson for Vance. “Our office has charged dozens of uniformed officers for official misconduct and violence since 2010, and will continue to do so in any case where such charges are supported by the facts and the law.”

Troiano’s arrest happened hours before the death of George Floyd and the subsequent worldwide protests against police brutality.
