New York City Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate bragged Wednesday night on the presidential debate stage about overseeing America’s largest police force, only for news to break Thursday that the fourth NYPD officer to commit suicide in three weeks was found dead in his Long Island home.
“Ofc. Kevin Preiss, a 24-year veteran assigned to the 50th Precinct in the Bronx who has a wife and several children, shot himself at his home on Long Island, law enforcement sources familar [sic] with the investigation told News 4 Thursday,” according to NBC4.
In what is quickly becoming a crisis, NYPD officers are committing suicide at an alarming rate. Preiss reportedly had a shining record of service that included saving a man’s life after the man had a heart attack in a Dunkin’ Donuts shortly before Christmas in 2016.
Conservative commentators were quick to note that NYPD officers loathe de Blasio after he used the talking point to bolster his credibility during Wednesday’s debate.
“True, Bill De Blasio does oversee the largest police force in the country. Also true, NYC police hate his guts,” Andrew Surabian said.

“De Blasio says he runs the largest police force in the country, leaves out the small detail that they CANNOT STAND HIM,” Chicks On The Right said.

De Blasio has little chance of winning the Democratic Primary. He is currently polling between zero and one percent in major national polls.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
