New York City Police Union President Demands for Mayor Bill de Blasio to Resign by ‘Sundown’
The head of an influential police union in New York City is demanding the immediate resignation of Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose lax criminal justice policies has caused an orgy of violence in the city.
“We need to hear you RESIGNED as Mayor of NYC,” Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins wrote in a Tweet.
“We are WAITING. Only a few hours left until sundown. Give 8 million people a gift & quit. You ruined NYC, Save the City and step down,” Mullins added.
Mullins struck back at de Blasio after he made some pot shots against President Donald Trump, deriding him for not loving diversity enough.
“What did we need to hear this week? Plans to fight COVID-19 and get Americans back to work. What did we hear? Lies about the greatest city in the world and one of the most diverse places on Earth,” de Blasio wrote in a Tweet complaining about the RNC convention.
“Because @realDonaldTrump is afraid of diversity. He’s afraid of true greatness,” de Blasio added.
The mayor’s press secretary directly slammed Mullins along with Patrick Lynch, who works as President of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York, in a statement.
“Ed Mullins and RNC speaker Pat Lynch do not represent the views of most New Yorkers, let alone rank-and-file,” Mayoral press secretary Bill Neidhardt wrote in a tweet.
“They’re a disgrace to the labor movement. Their embrace of a racist President shows how ill-equipped they are to serve a diverse city and a majority-minority force,” Neidhardt added.
Big League Politics has reported on how de Blasio has undone decades of successful public policy, allowing NYC to once again become a crime-ridden wasteland:
Shootings in New York City have spiked 358 percent in comparison to this time last year, as Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots weaken the rule of law across the city.
There were 12 shootings over the previous week in 2019, and that has jumped to an incredible 55 shootings over the same week just one year later. This resulted in 74 people being wounded, according to data released by the NYPD.
This news comes after NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea announced that a plainclothes unit meant to sniff out crime on the streets was disbanded. He made it clear that his agency would not be reversing their decision no matter how bad society devolves.
The criminals are being unleashed, and the anti-crime strides achieved over the past few decades are being reversed under the rule of far-left Mayor Bill de Blasio.
De Blasio addressed the surge of crime with his usual empty platitudes: “We are not going back to the bad old days where there was too much gun violence in this city, nor are we going back to the bad old days” of police supposedly abusing civil liberties.
Criminals have received the message that de Blasio is actively hamstringing law enforcement. This has resulted in a wave of savagery that goes far beyond mere shootings.
The cops are fed up with liberal officials like de Blasio who will not allow them to do their jobs. A full-blown revolt may be on the way if de Blasio refuses to step down.
