posted by Hannity Staff - 10.24.19

A lone suspect reportedly attacked a random passenger on a New York City subway platform Wednesday evening; viciously shoving her head-first into a waiting train.

Video of the incident went viral on social media, with many flagging the incident to the NYPD and MTA police.


“The man, hopping up and down and screaming ‘What!’ several times, appears to initially shove somebody else in the 7:20 p.m. incident at the Dekalb Avenue subway station in Fort Greene,” reports the NY Post.

“He then pummels the unsuspecting woman with both hands, forcing her to tumble face-first into the idle train,” adds the newspaper.

The incident comes days after an EMT worker was attacked in New York City; prompting a fierce outcry from union officials.

“Mayor de Blasio, you need to do more to protect the men and women who protect and serve this city,” said Oren Barzilay, president of EMS union Local 2507. “The city is spiraling down to a chaos where there’s no respect for nobody — buckets of water thrown at police officers, assaults on EMTs and paramedics are on a daily basis, assaults on MTA workers is on a daily basis … our city has run down to a point of no return.”

OUT OF CONTROL: Bill to Designate Water-Attacks on Police a Felony Facing Opposition from NY Democrats

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.08.19

New legislation introduced in New York State that would classify water-assaults on police officers as a felony is facing opposition from Democrats; with leaders saying lawmakers should focus on a “community response.”

“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.’”

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.

“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.”
