OUT OF CONTROL: Crowd Throws ‘Gallon of Milk’ at NYPD Officers Responding to a Fire

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.05.19

Bystanders hurled a gallon of milk at NYPD officers responding to a braze in the Bronx this week; raising more questions about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s relationship with the department and law enforcement unions.

Video emerged on social media with the caption ‘F*** the Police.’ The unruly crowd then tossed what appeared to be a container of milk at the officers as they assisted the Fire Department.

Similar videos went viral on social media earlier this year, prompting lawmakers in Albany to propose legislation making similar attacks a mandatory felony.

“It’s a serious offense, but people want to shrug it off and say it’s no big deal,” State Assemblyman Mike LiPetri told Fox News.

“LiPetri and other Republicans are 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. The bill came in response to viral videos last month which showed people dousing NYPD officers with water, including one man throwing an empty bucket that hit an officer in the head,” adds Fox.

“Right now we’re lacking common sense in New York state it seems. Both sides of the aisle should agree with this. Ultimately, if you’re for safe communities, you’re for this bill,” he added.

“Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie threw cold water on talk of legislation that would charge thugs with a felony for drenching cops with buckets of water,” reports the New York Post. “Outraged Republican state lawmakers introduced the bill late last month following a series of dousing incidents of NYPD officers in Harlem, The Bronx and Queens.”

“Police officers should be respected, no one should be dousing them with water, particularly when they are in the midst of doing their jobs,” Heastie said. “But I don’t know if always proposing new penalties and laws [is the answer] . . . I think on the positive end, we should continue to try and establish more of a community and police response. I think that’s more beneficial instead of always saying, ‘We are going to lock people up.’”

A New York lawmaker slammed the state’s Democratic Party for opposing new legislation that would designate water-attacks on police officers a felony.

“It’s a serious offense, but people want to shrug it off and say it’s no big deal,” State Assemblyman Mike LiPetri told Fox News.

“LiPetri and other Republicans are 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.

Former NYPD Chief Louis Anemone slammed Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio Monday; calling the presidential hopeful’s attitude towards police “disgraceful” after footage emerged showing cops assaulted with water in recent weeks.

“He’s the chief executive of this city of New York, the largest city in this country. He has not taken the lead for security, for public security, and for supporting the police. He’s been behind, way behind,” Anemone said.

“He does not have their back. I firmly believe firmly that he does not have their back,” he added.

President Trump weighed-in on the controversy last week, writing “We love our Law Enforcement Officers all around this great Country. What took place in NYC with water being tossed on NYPD officers was a total disgrace. It is time for @NYCMayor @BilldeBlasio to STAND UP for those who protect our lives and serve us all so well.”

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted Bill de Blasio last Monday after footage emerged of local teens dousing NYPD officers with buckets of water; saying this “disrespect” for uniformed police never would have happened on his watch.

OUT OF CONTROL: NYPD Hate Crimes Unit Investigating 3 Attacks on Jewish Community in ONE HOUR

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Unit is investigating three reported attacks on New York City’s Hasidic Jewish community within one hour; saying the robberies in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn could be religiously motivated.

“Obviously, might just be a run-of-the-mill mugging with the attempt as a bias crime, knowing that these people – just like myself, I go out of my house at 5:30, and many of them do, because prayer starts at six,” community activist Isaac Abraham told CBS2’s Christina Fan.

A series of vicious anti-Semitic attacks in Brooklyn, New York were caught on tape this week; raising serious new concerns over safety and security for the city’s Jewish population.

“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.
