New York police union boss Mike O’Meara slams fake news media. Stop treating police officers as “animals and thugs.”

New York police union boss Mike O’Meara said politicians and the establishment media has to stop treating police officers like “animals and thugs.”
O’Meara, president of the New York State Association of Police Benevolent Associations, lashed out at elected officials and the press for invoking fear and hatred towards police officers — specifically in the black American community.
Each year,” O’Meara noted, police have roughly 375 million interactions with the public with”overwhelmingly positive answers.”
“But what we read in the papers all week is that in the black community, mothers are concerned about their children getting home from college without being murdered by a cop,” O’Meara said. “What world are we living in? That doesn’t happen. It does not happen.” He continued:
Our legislators are failing us. Our press is vilifying us. That is what we’re here to say. We have been vilified. It’s disgusting… attempting to make us ashamed of our profession.
O’Meara denounced former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin, charged with murdering George Floyd, saying politicians and the media must stop equating the alleged murder with the actions of New York police officials.
“I’m not Derek Chauvin. “He murdered someone; we did not. We are restrained. We roundly deny what he did disgusting. It’s not exactly what we do.”
“Everyone’s trying to make us feel ashamed — the legislators, the press. This [authorities badge] is not stained by someone in Minneapolis. It has still got a glow on it and thus does theirs.”
While Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to cut financing to the New York City Police Department (NYPD), violent crime in town has surged despite continuing to maintain semi-lockdown over the Chinese coronavirus catastrophe.
Over the last month, for example, murder has jumped more than 94 percent compared to the same period the previous year. Burglaries — now that suspects can be freed with0ut paying bond — have increased nearly 34 percent in the past month in contrast to 2019.
Grand larceny auto, whereby suspects similarly are freed now without having to pay bail, has become the fastest growing crime in NYC.

  1. Let the police go on strike and let the good residents arm themselves with shotguns. Those that are committing crimes, mostly the blacks, are shot on sight by the decent householders. Maybe then these criminals will get the message, the police may be on strike, but they will not get away with their criminal activity, they will pay with their lives. Got to start happening in the UK as well. If these feral scum of youths and the feral drugged up adults want to commit criminal acts against the law abiding citizens, they do not get arrested when the thin arm of the law appears, they pay for their crimes with their lives. That is regardless of colour. There is far too much of this softly softly approach in the world today. It has got to be quelled once and for all whereby those responsible are either dealt with on the street or the police take them through the legal system.
