OUT OF CONTROL: NYC ‘Subway Surfer’ Released After 18th Arrest, Responsible for Hundreds of Delays

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.06.19

New York City’s so-called “Subway Surfer” was arrested -and released without bail- for the 18th time this week; enraging commuters who have dealt with hundreds of delays due to the unauthorized rider.

“A Brooklyn man who was arrested for the 18th time for subway crimes that police say have caused hundreds of delays for commuters was released without bail, officials said,” reports the Wall Street Journal.

“Isaiah Thompson, 23 years old, was arrested most recently on Friday, when he turned himself in to police after he was seen riding on the outside of a train near Manhattan’s Union Square, said New York Police Department officials,” adds the WSJ.

The suspect is also wanted for other subway-related crimes, including activating an emergency brake during a busy evening rush hour commute in Manhattan.

“Repeat offenders are exactly why the MTA board voted in June to seek a mechanism to ban those who continuously perpetrate crimes against our riders from maintaining their privilege of using the subways,” said MTA Communications Director Tim Minton. “In the meantime, police and MTA staff are required to wait until someone violates rules or the law in the present before taking action.”

BUSTED! Latest Suspect to Throw Water on Police Officers ARRESTED in New York City

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.01.19

The “tough guy” featured in a viral video spraying NYPD Officers with water was arrested in New York Thursday; with police bosses saying this type of behavior “will never be tolerated” in the Big Apple.

“The tough guy who confronted two NYPD traffic enforcement agents doing the job taxpayers want & expect them to do has been arrested. Brooklyn resident Steven Larosa, 35, is charged with Harassment and Obstructing Governmental Administration. Such behavior will never be tolerated,” posted Commissioner O’Neill on social media.

New York lawmakers introduced legislation this week that would make it a felony to douse Police Officers with water; a direct response after multiple videos went viral showing members of the NYPD attacked with buckets during the recent heatwave.

“This is disgraceful,” Assemblyman Mike LiPetri of Long Island said of the incidents. “The men and women in blue are people in our neighborhoods. Let us not forget that these officers took a sacred oath … We believe it is time that we return to a society that understands the fundamental belief in right versus wrong.”

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.

“This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is result of a Democrat-Progressive (Retrogressive)-Socialist Mayor. This is what happens with knee-jerk disrespect for police. It will only get worse until these Left wing idiots are defeated,” posted Giuliani on social media.

DE BLASIO ROCKED: Former NYPD Boss Slams ‘Disgraceful’ De Blasio’s Attitude Towards Police

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.

“This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is result of a Democrat-Progressive (Retrogressive)-Socialist Mayor. This is what happens with knee-jerk disrespect for police. It will only get worse until these Left wing idiots are defeated,” posted Giuliani on social media.

Footage shows separate incidents of people in Harlem using buckets to splash and dump water over uniformed officers, as the cops calmly walk away. De Blasio condemned the acts as ‘Completely unacceptable,’ and said, ‘We won’t tolerate this kind of disrespect.’ Still, former mayor Giuliani believes the 2020 presidential candidate is part of the problem,” reports Fox News.

“Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen. It’s not the fault of these police officers. It’s the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall and Albany for years now,” said PBA President Patrick Lynch, adding, “Disorder controls the streets, and our elected leaders refuse to allow us to take them back.”
