Watch: Crowd Laughs And Cheers As Punks Throw Milk On NYPD Officer
Imagine being an officer who’s just trying to keep the public safe and clear a building so that firefighters can come and do their job. Then, imagine those same residents hit you with a liquid for their own amusement.
Stories like this keep emerging from New York despite the fact that Republicans wrote a new bill that would make throwing liquids on officers a felony.
The folks at The Blaze reported that shortly after New York City police officers evacuated a Bronx apartment building amid a sixth-floor fire Tuesday, video shows someone in the rowdy crowd on the street tossing an open half-gallon of milk at an officer — and onlookers reacted with laughter and cheers, the New York Post reported.
“Ha! They got milked on!” one person was heard saying on the clip, which the paper said was posted on Instagram and came with superimposed text and an emoji that sent a “F*** the police” message.
The incident went down just before 5 p.m. Tuesday after cops evacuated an apartment building at 1454 Grand Concourse due to a blaze on the 6th floor, according to the NYPD.
Firefighters were battling the 2-alarm inferno — which left seven people injured, including two cops and an FDNY member — while officers were getting people out and controlling the scene, officials said.
A crowd of residents who had been asked to evacuate formed outside and became rowdy, according to police — and that’s when the curdled creep struck.
Republicans in the state’s assembly were angered by viral videos of cops being drenched in water by groups of local residents — with NYPD officers apparently feeling unable to respond and walking away. Police have since made a number of arrests related to the cases, but the incidents have sparked national attention, with President Trump calling the incidents “a total disgrace” last month.
GOP lawmakers are now introducing a bill that would make throwing or spraying water “or any other substance” on a police officer a class E felony and punishable by up to four years in jail.
That includes milk, so let’s hope that officers are able to bring these attackers to justice.
Critics have noted that tossing water over a police officer is already a criminal offense, and have accused pushers of the bill of calling for a disproportionate response. But Malliotakis said that a number of bills have gone through Albany on issues such as reducing bail and misdemeanor sentencing that she describes as “pro-criminal.”
