When you lay with dogs, don’t be surprised when you catch fleas…
Remember when New York City’s chief of police (official title: Chief of Department) Terence Monahan posed for the cameras and joined the mob in ‘taking a knee”, as seen in the video below?
Well, Terry may have thought he was in tight with the thugs, but now it seems that these jackals have turned on the same guy that knelt with them.
As it turn out, there was (yet again) another “peaceful protest”, this time on New York’s famed Brooklyn Bridge.
For whatever bizarre reason, Chief Monahan thought it was a good idea to make a showing. Even more bizarre, Monahan thought it was a good idea to only have a handful of officers escort him into the belly of the beast.
In retrospect, that wasn’t too bright of an idea. At least two other officers injured and an undetermined number of stitches later, and at least 10 arrested…
As reported by Breitbart.com (emphasis mine);
Monahan received “non-life threatening injuries” during the scuffle and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
A police source said Monahan’s hand was injured and required stitches after protesters attacked NYPD officers with a chain during the morning rally. At least two other officers were also injured.
The attack on Monahan came just one day after he [Monahan] said in an interview that there’s “a feeling on the street that the police are handcuffed,” and “are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement.”
“[T]here’s a lot of different factors into it. We’ve mentioned bail reform and COVID releases, but just as importantly, if not more importantly, is the animosity towards the police that was generated after the Floyd protests,” he told New York’s 1010 WINS.
“The new law that was passed by the city council has cops hesitant. They are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement. The disbanding of anti-Crime, obviously, has a huge effect. Those are our best cops out on the street, grabbing guns. So, there’s a feeling that it’s safe to carry a gun on the street.”
Wednesday attack comes in the wake of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) confirming that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of NYPD, despite a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest.
