The NYPD was thrown under the bus once again, this time by the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, a thug who, like most leftists, won’t support cops.
There were four separate incidents in Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, where black gang youth, neighborhood kids, and small children threw buckets of water on NYC cops. Officers didn’t react because there is no support whatsoever from the Mayor. The recent Officer Pantaleo incident gives evidence of that.
Police admit that they’re afraid of being falsely accused of racism and being fired, doxxed, and sued for “discrimination” simply for doing their jobs. They aren’t even safe from prosecution if the person they have dealt with is a hardened criminal with a weapon pointed at them and they themselves are minorities.
The leftist governor called them “embarrassing” and “wimps.”
Cuomo told WAMC radio in Albany, New York that the NYPD officers who walked away when they were being doused with water were “impotent.” He also called the numerous water-assault incidents “one of the most disturbing and embarrassing actions I’ve seen.”
He did rightfully blame De Blasio but those two are very similar and are constantly at loggerheads.
“I look to the training and the policies of the police department that would’ve instructed them to act that way,” Cuomo said. “The training has to be, you don’t turn around and get back in the car and drive away. You literally make law enforcement ineffective and impotent, and that hurts everyone.”
