Why don’t we hear a word from Bloomberg as police officers are besieged by out-of-control mobs? I hope his deal over windmills is worth being a sell out. The complete lack of respect for authority in our society can be no more evident than in these protests.
The OWS have set up a faux “police brutality victimization” front on Wall Street. They gang up and mob the police, they fall down and scream when an officer comes near them, they taunt the police by smoking pot in public and committing lewd acts, and whatever else to taunt the police and make it appear as if the police are oppressive and brutal.
What was it that Bloomberg said, the OWS weren’t a problem unless they broke the law? What comprises law breaking to Bloomberg?
This is what our politicians, right up to the White House, think is acceptable? I stand with New York’s finest. To date, the OWS have injured 20 police officers, and the OWS have remained unscathed by it, but maybe that will come to an end.
The Sergeant’s Benevolent Association, said the following on Thursday, “In light of the growing violence attendant to the ‘Occupy’ movements across the country, particularly as evidenced by the recent events in Oakland, I am compelled to place these so-called ‘occupiers’ on notice that physical assaults on police officers will not be tolerated,” Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeant’s Benevolent Association, said in a statement.
“Any assault on a police officer is not only punishable as a felony in the State of New York, but will also be met with swift and certain legal action by the SBA, which will seek monetary damages against any individual who causes injury to a New York City sergeant.”
“I have instructed the SBA’s attorneys to pursue the harshest possible civil sanctions — including monetary damages — against any individual protestor who causes injury to my members,” Mullins said in the statement.
“Protestors are not immunized from civil liability merely because their victims are wearing the uniform of the New York City Police Department.”
