posted by Hannity Staff - 5.21.19

The New York Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a group of teenagers that brutally attacked an off-duty firefighter after he tried to stop them from harassing an elderly couple in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood.

“Help us identify these suspects #wanted for an ASSAULT on 5/18 at 9:25am of a 38-year-old man who intervened while this group of teens harassed an elderly couple in front of 217 E 86th St. #UES $2,500 reward for info leading to arrests,” posted the city’s 19th precinct on social media.

“A New York City Firefighter sustained a concussion and several broken teeth Saturday after police say he was assaulted while trying to stop a group of teens from harassing an elderly couple,” reports Fox News.

“The 38-year-old off-duty firefighter was traveling on East 86th St. in Manhattan at around 9:25 a.m. Saturday when he noticed six teens ‘harassing’ an elderly couple,” a spokesperson with the New York City Police Department told Fox News.

The vicious attack comes just days after a string of anti-Semitic assaults swept Brooklyn.

“Just received a report that a Hasidic father & son were beaten up in Williamsburg this past Friday night for no other reason than being Jewish. Police report has been filed. Here’s footage of the four violent suspects behind the attack – help @NYPDDetectives find them!” posted Dov Hikind, a former NY Assemblyman from Brooklyn.

“It’s shocking but not surprising that such violent hate crimes are being committed against Jews (yesterday in Bklyn) just as antisemitism is being mainstreamed. This attack resembles Nazi Germany where antisemites attacked Jews with glee. We won’t tolerate it!” he added.

DE BLASIO DEFLECTS: NYC Mayor Blames Big Apple CHAOS on ‘Bad Luck’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.16.18

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio deflected fierce criticism of his administration’s handling of a mild November snowstorm Friday; blaming the total chaos on “bad luck” and unreliable weather reports.

The prominent Democrat was speaking with NY1 when he was asked to respond to furious residents after the normally congested evening commute took some locals 12 hours to travel just four or five miles.

“There are definitely some things we need to learn from this and things we need to do better,” admitted the mayor. “But it’s also important to note we got just about every form of bad luck we could have gotten yesterday. The weather service reports changed radically yesterday.”

“I can’t remember that happening previously in the middle of what seemed to be a normal day,” said de Blasio on the sudden closure of the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. “That really threw everything off. That had a horrible, extreme reaction on the entire city.”
