Many liberal cities are leaving their law enforcement dangerously vulnerable to anti-cop hate crimes and unnecessary conflicts. By supporting insanely irresponsible slogans like 'defund the police' and openly speaking out against their own law enforcement, liberal politicians have single-handedly created a toxic environment with citizens no longer feeling they should obey, much less respect, the guys and gals in blue.
This was no more evident than what happened in the Bronx, New York, over the weekend. When two officers attempted to enforce the 'no large crowds' rule and were quickly met with hostility and violence.
Multiple law enforcement sources allege this account of what happened that night:
The two cops — both of them Neighborhood Coordination Officers, tasked with tackling quality of life issues — were part of an NYPD initiative to discourage outdoor crowds, in hopes of minimizing the number of people getting hurt as shootings plague the city.
When the crowd hanging out at the Bronx intersection ignored their instruction to disperse, the cops began writing a summons for a double-parked car at the scene.
The car owner then arrived at the scene and began complaining, insisting, “Well, now that you wrote the summons, I can park here for hours and hours.” [When] Told that’s not how it works, the car owner became “combative,” sources said.
It was while the two were trying to handcuff the belligerent car owner that the crowd began taunting the officers.
“He act gangsta because he got a badge and a gun,” the man filming is heard saying on the video. “F–k outta here. Y’all n—-s is p—y, bro.”
At some point, one of the cops’ body cameras is knocked to the pavement, only to then be kicked away by the man whose confrontation with the pair allegedly ended in a headlock. Despite police opposition, de Blasio has stated he plans to sign the chokehold bill next week:
“We’re going to do the retraining of officers to address the features of the law,” de Blasio said at a Tuesday news conference.

The officer reportedly suffered a gash to his head that was bad enough it required staples. The de Blasio-Cuomo liberal regime apparently sees nothing wrong with this. How do they seriously expect the fine men and women in law enforcement to protect their own lives while enforcing the laws that politicians (like them) write?
