As Democrats continue to demonize the Police, Border Patrol Officers, Immigration Officers, and other departments within the law enforcement community, that hate, and disrespect for the law and law enforcement continues to spread to the young in America!
WABC News reported that…
The NYPD is looking into an incident in Harlem in which a group of people doused a police officer with water.
Video that surfaced Monday showed an officer who was making an arrest being drenched, though clearly not assaulted in a manner that was likely to result in injury.
The officer had buckets of water and then the bucket thrown at him. He did not appear to react to it.
“It’s not acceptable for anyone to resist arrest,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio “It’s not acceptable for anyone to interfere with the NYPD when they are effectuating an arrest. Throwing things at NYPD officers is not only not acceptable, it can lead to charges.”
The police union released a statement saying “Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish. The NYPD is now frozen. It’s the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall for years now.”

People on the street in Harlem had varying degrees of support and sympathy for the police.
“That’s bad, you shouldn’t be throwing water when somebody’s getting arrested,” said one resident. “It’s obviously bad. I don’t know what the person was getting arrested for, but that’s illegal.”
But not everyone saw it that way.
“I feel like that’s how our young generation is expressing ourselves,” said another area resident. “Because there’s a lot of black males getting killed over nothing they do.”
Police are investigating the Harlem incident as an assault on a police officer.
In addition, another punk on a subway verbally accosted the Police, who were just doing their job. (WARNING THERE IS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE USED AGAINST THE POLICE)…
The hate has been perpetrated by the radical left-wing Police-hating left, as they have normalized hate, and made the Police who protect and serve our communities and neighborhoods to be the bad guys! In addition, the openly self-proclaimed Marxist Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-NY) has ordered the Police to stand down and allow such criminal conduct by thugs, which is now leading to increased crime, increased hate, and increased problems!
Fox News reported that…
The New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA) demanded that the district attorney invoke felony charges against those accused of throwing water or other substances at officers. The call came after viral videos surfaced on Monday showing officers being doused or pelted while onlookers jeered.
“At a minimum, there should be a felony charge for assaulting a police officer by throwing or spraying water or any other substance, and a misdemeanor charge for the attempt to do so. It’s time for lawmakers to take a stand against disorder, on behalf of their constituents and the cops who protect them,” PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said in a statement Tuesday. He said that under current law, officers can make arrests or write tickets in such instances, but in most cases they will not be criminally prosecuted by the DA.
“Since these outrageous videos surfaced, a chorus of lawmakers has condemned the behavior as ‘unacceptable’ and ‘disrespectful.’ We have been down this road before — words of support are meaningless if they’re not backed up by concrete action to address the lawlessness on our streets,” Lynch said.
“The chaos will continue to escalate unless something changes.”
On Tuesday, another video circulated by the NYC PBA Twitter account showed a man on a subway yelling epithets at two police officers, declaring it his First Amendment right to verbally abuse cops and telling them to perform sexual acts on them! It occurred in New York’s subway,
According to reports, the officers stayed calm, and now outrage against the hate that is now being channelled towards the Police! New York City Council Member Eric Ulrich stated at a Press Conference that…
“I think that it showed tremendous restraint, self-respect, and dignity on the part of the police officer. I think that he made every cop and every police officer in this city proud yesterday, but at the same time he was humiliated and there was no reason for that. The people who are responsible for these crimes, they need to be prosecuted, they need to be held accountable, and yes, they need to be charged with a felony”
In addition, other members of the council echoed those very sentiments of the PBA, demanding “zero tolerance” and prosecution for those who attack law enforcement officers!
Already, we have seen the left-wing hate that has been directed at our Police Officers, led to Starbucks kicking out six Police Officers in Tempe, Arizona, because they said that the officers made customers feel unsafe, NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY DID, BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE POLICE OFFICERS! Meanwhile, you have the Soros-funded and Marxist group ‘Black Lives Matter’, who utilize their resources and power to attack and demonize America’s law enforcement community, rather than help the plight of the black communities, or patch up wounds between minorities and the law enforcement community!
Sadly, the radical left-wing Democrat Party puts Party over the People, they put power over the law, and they put their personal wealth over the needs of their constituents! As a result, if our elected leaders have no respect for the laws, not the people tasked with enforcing those laws, then how do we expect the citizens of our nation, and our youth, to respect our laws, or those tasked with defending those laws either? That’s the problem!
Paul Harvey explained the importance of our nations law enforcement community, and why we should respect those who serve and those who are willing to put their lives on the line, despite it many times being a thankless job…
