Mayor de Blasio knew on-duty cops were in serious danger from the Black Guerrilla Family from an informant(s), threats which were recently renewed. It is believed that Ismaayl Brinsley was a member of the gang. It has forced one NYFD Engine Company to move. Despite this, police officers are being kept from arresting mobs that take over NYC streets and bridges.
This is NYC under a communist. It was in this atmosphere, that De Blasio promoted the “peaceful protests” taking over NYC today and using lies to propagandize an anti-police campaign.
An NYPD confidential informant learned of the original threat three days after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the chokehold death of Eric Garner. The police union confirmed the threat and were ordering all police officers, on duty and off, to take extra precautions.
When Brinsley came up to NYC to kill Officers Liu and Ramos, he was carrying a number of $100 dollar bills despite the fact that he doesn’t have a job. Police are exploring the possibility of his being a member of the Black Guerrilla gang though officials originally announced Brinsley had no gang affiliations.
The NY Daily News reported that Brinsley was thought to be a member of the gang but police officials originally denied it. GotNews reported that he is also a member of the radical Islamic group ISNA.
The Black Guerrilla Family have been known to use police scanners to track police just as Brinsley did prior to killing Officers Liu and Ramos.
He is being painted as just another insane person by the mayor’s office and it’s obviously being done for political expediency.
Leftists won’t take a tough stance on crime. They want to loosen the laws and even do away with most prisons. They’re extremists and go far beyond just caring about prisoners and prison reform. Listen to the video on this link.
The fact that these threats existed did not stop de Blasio from continuing the encouragement of the leftists revolutionaries and gangs who have taken over NYC. It’s not safe to go to NYC.
In addition to communists, anarchists, black militants, gang members are among the “peaceful protesters” supported by our government here in NY and in the country.
The fire truck and Engine Co. 222 moved out of its Bed Sty headquarters next door to a police station – NYPD’s 81st Precinct – in response these real threats by the gang. FDNY spokesman said it was out of an abundance of caution.
Hardly an abundance.
They’ve moved to a neighboring fire house until the police mitigate the issue.
We now have police and fire departments in danger and unable to protect themselves while the mayor still claims the protesters are mostly peaceful and while he supports their “cause” which has little to do with blacks and a whole lot to do with turning over our legal system.
The 81st is guarded by ESU cops with helmets and body armor. They’re armed with assault rifles and the entrance is barricaded.
An informant told the officers that Baltimore’s Black Guerrilla Family planned to “shoot it out” with cops there.
Our NY government sent 80 detectives out last night to corral the “peaceful protesters” with orange netting and arrest anyone trying to block the traffic. When the marchers neared, a lieutenant ordered to cops to stay in place but not make arrests.
Our police are sitting ducks.
In other words, the streets and roadways of NY have been surrendered to militants and every crazy will turn out. This is not what Bloomberg or Giuliani would have done. It is what David Dinkins – an abysmal failure as mayor – would have done.
In other news, one firefighter fell ten stories down an elevator shaft and then got up and fought the five-alarm blaze in the Bronx. These brave firefighters and police officers, who risk their lives every day to save others, who are in most cases black, have been abandoned by a regime that favors revolutionaries.
The reason Michael Brown died is because he attacked a police officer.
The reason Eric Garner died was because of an absurd law over-criminalized the selling of bootleg cigarettes.
De Blasio is the one who pushed the police into arresting anyone who sold them.
Sandanista Bill recently ordered city lawyers to stay silent about a groundbreaking lawsuit to keep bootleg cigarettes out of the Big Apple, the NY Daily News has learned.
De Blasio wanted to downplay his hypocrisy in what really led to Eric Garner’s death. He filed an untaxed cigarette lawsuit the week of the Garner decision.
“You can’t have the mayor blabbing away that selling loosies is a ‘minor offense,’ but then have the Law Department, which represents and protects the city and the mayor’s interests, file this suit,” the leaker, a city lawyer, said. “It reeks of duplicity.”
The official, citing de Blasio’s “Tale of Two Cities” campaign rhetoric, added that “the mayor has a problem with two cities, and he created it.”
“On one hand, to pander to his voting base, he spews some nonsense that selling loosies is a ‘minor offense,’” the official said.
The tax on cigarettes is now more than $6 a pack because the statists in power decided that cigarettes will be banned one way or the other. Meanwhile, they want the drug laws eased.
The Black Guerrilla Family was founded by the charismatic revolutionary George Jackson, a former Black Panther who called his members “comrades.” They subscribe to Marxist-Maoist politics. Their first commander was the notorious Doc Holiday who was a member of the brutal Symbionese Liberation Army. They recruited from the Crips and the Bloods. Their goal was to unite all black West Coast gangs. They have a strong presence in Maryland as well as Chicago and other cities with no small thanks to the loose control of the prison system in these liberal/leftist cities.
The gang makes news regularly but one particularly heinous case occurred in 2011 when they killed an innocent 12-year old boy, Sean Johnson, and wounded three other teens because they couldn’t find the man they thought shot their commander.
The boy put up his hands and called for his mother. They shouted “Shut up bitch” and executed him in cold blood.
The only reason they shot the kids was because they were there and the criminals were in a bad mood and wanted to send a message.
This is an example of the black on black crime the “peaceful protesters” don’t give a d@mn about. They only care about invented crimes that suit their Marxist ambitions.
The Sentinel has been reporting the presence of gangs among these “peaceful protesters” since the riots, I mean protests, began.
The gang that is threatening NYC police, BGF, is also known as the Black Family and Black Vanguard. They have organized as a paramilitary organization.
The Sentinel posted a story about the dangerous gang in April, 2013. They run some Maryland prisons.
De Blasio recently set up a counseling program for gang members modeled after the very unsuccessful one in Chicago.
Leftists think the way to deal with gang violence is to free them and give them therapy.
