Arrests Plummet 66% with NYPD in Virtual Work Stoppage

Larry Celona et al., New York Post, December 29, 2014

It’s not a slowdown–it’s a virtual work stoppage.

NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops–as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.

The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.

The unprecedented meeting is being held at the new Police Academy in Queens at 2 p.m., sources said.

Angry union leaders have ordered drastic measures for their members since the Dec. 20 assassination of two NYPD cops in a patrol car, including that two units respond to every call.

It has helped contribute to a nose dive in low-level policing, with overall arrests down 66 percent for the week starting Dec. 22 compared with the same period in 2013, stats show.

Citations for traffic violations fell by 94 percent, from 10,069 to 587, during that time frame.

Summonses for low-level offenses like public drinking and urination also plunged 94 percent–from 4,831 to 300.

Even parking violations are way down, dropping by 92 percent, from 14,699 to 1,241.

Drug arrests by cops assigned to the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau–which are part of the overall number–dropped by 84 percent, from 382 to 63.

Police sources said Monday that safety concerns were the main reason for the dropoff in police activity, but added that some cops were mounting an undeclared slowdown in protest of de Blasio’s response to the non-indictment in the police chokehold death of Eric Garner.

“The call last week from the PBA is what started it, but this has been simmering for a long time,” one source said.

“This is not a slowdown for slowdown’s sake. Cops are concerned, after the reaction from City Hall on the Garner case, about de Blasio not backing them.”

The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association has warned its members to put their safety first and not make arrests “unless absolutely necessary.”

    Violent crime will now skyrocket, but the anti-white dimwits will never make the connection.

    Another era of David Dinkins.

    It will be funny to see the white anchors attempt to discuss this.

    • The Verdict of History

      Yes.

      The homicide rate will likely surge too.

      Let the progressive and liberal citizens of NYC get a taste of the 1980s, when the city was a virtual zoo and cesspool.

      The good news is that many bright eyed liberals will be mugged into reality over the next few years of Mayor De Blasio’s term.

      • The homicide surge is fine as long as the right people are the target.

        • LACountyRedneck

          Black on White assaults and murders will likely increase.

          • The Verdict of History

            Sadly, this is true.

            But a re-awakening among White New Yorkers is long overdue.

            Black street criminals have critical role to play in igniting that awakening through their violence…

          • benvad

            Mr.Goetz types arm yourselves and be vigilant.

          • Alucard_the_last

            I’m really hoping that the self-loathing whites who protested against the police will be the main targets of lawless negroes.

          • Charles Martel

            It’ll be the young hipsters now conveniently located near black population centers in Brooklyn and Harlem. They think their progressive views on race will save them. It’s going to be a rude awakening for them.

          • NoMosqueHere

            The white hipsters are more race crazy than the black militants. They need a good thumpin’.

          • LACountyRedneck

            Some already have been. I remember an article recently where a White guy with a shirt that said, “Black Lives matter” getting his butt kicked.

          • benvad

            I hope they get what they deserve instead of WWII veterans.

          • benvad

            I hope they’re democrats like Howard Stern and other progressives.

    • George Costanza

      Shootings are up in NYC..

      “There have been 1,207 shooting victims this year as of Nov. 9. For the
      same time period in 2013, there were 1,135 shooting victims. That’s a
      6.3% increase, when earlier in the year it had been as high as 13%”.

    • TheCogitator

      Violent crime will only jump in black neighborhoods. White people will continue to behave in a civilized manner. Cops are basically useless.

      • Bob Haymaker

        Precisely this. As long as everybody more or less stays in their own neighborhoods, everything will be fine.

        • LHathaway

          For far too many of us at this point that only locks us in with them.

        • Charles Martel

          Lots of young whites have been forced into traditionally minority areas by sky high housing costs. They will be easy pickings for thugs in Brooklyn and Harlem.

          • John R

            Yes, I pity the millenials, who will be forced to pay for the follies of the Baby Boomers.

      • John Smith

        They are those-in-power’s enforcers, period.

        • TheCogitator

          Exactly. The ride around in cars with “protect and serve” on them, but they are not protecting and serving us (we the people), but rather the powers that be — the evil rulers.

      • John Smith

        That’s a great point !

        Cops are basically useless. All the business owners have found this out.

        Knowing ahead of time about rampaging blacks during upcoming protests, what did they do?

        • Lkoehn

          Cops do what their city administrations allow them to do. Why do they not shoot rioters and looters? Because they are told not to by the people that they work for. Why do business owners not shoot rioters and looters? Because they fear prosecution by the city. The reason cops are so useless is that they investigate after the crime has been committed?

          • John Smith

            Agreed. My post was much too oversimplified. I was referring to the police as the buffer between you and the criminals.

            The police are just an extension of the higher ups that are instructing them.

            Probably should have said “law enforcement” is now basically useless.

            Point taken.

        • dukem1

          When seconds count, they’re only minutes away!!

      • obot

        There are no white neighborhoods in NYC. The ghettos are right next door to the million dollar flats

        • TheCogitator

          People who so foolishly live in such close proximity to blacks deserve what they get. I would not live in any area that had such demographics as you describe.

        • John R

          Yeah, affluent young Whites, who don’t believe in violence or guns, and whose men are mostly skinny sissy hipster types. Yep, just like Africa: The hyenas will be on the prowl, while the gazelles are out.

      • Texan1st

        I’m not familiar with NYC. Black crime doesn’t bleed over into white areas? Cops don’t arrest blacks when they commit crimes against white people? I would suspect NYC is like anywhere else. Cops don’t catch them 100% of the time but they do eventually catch them and lock them up. Until some liberal judge or prosecutor strikes a plea bargain and let’s them back out. But that’s not the fault of police. If you think cops are useless now, wait until blacks no longer fear cops coming for them. As you watch crime rates skyrocket, you will look back and realize that although cops weren’t able to stop ALL crime or solve cases 100% of the time, they did a pretty decent job and weren’t so useless after all.

        • Alucard_the_last

          Most murders are black on black and Hispanic on Hispanic which I have no problem with. It is when a human is killed that gets me upset. I don’t even think black on black crimes should result in arrest let alone prison.

          • The bongonians get used to it and then turn on someone who matters. Even when it isn’t deliberate, when Shitavious hoses down N’DeJamal with his stolen High Point pistol, holding the silly thing sideways, he’s just as apt to hit some retired Polish widow out walking her dog.

          • ElComadreja

            Safest place to be is right in front of Shitavious’ gun.

          • ElComadreja

            In the days when this country had common sense black on black murder wasn’t much of a crime. The owner of the offending negro would have to reimburse the owner of the deceased or if they both belonged to him settle the matter as he saw fit.

        • Hy Alldredge

          Oddly enough black crime doesn’t tend to seep into adjacent neighborhoods here. It’s surreal – you can be walking in a clean, safe neighborhood and then in the span of two blocks you’re surrounded by run down buildings and crack heads. There are also lots of mixed white/Dominican neighborhoods that are livable if loud. Dominicans are racist as hell and don’t tolerate blacks hanging around.

      • WR_the_realist

        New York City has lots of white neighborhoods that are only a block or two away from black neighborhoods. I expect the crime rate in those white neighborhoods to soar.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Cops aren’t useless. Whites usually behave in a civilized manner but they require police service if they have accidents or are victimized by black criminal militants.

    • Cid Campeador

      David Dinkins stood by in Crown Heights and told the police to let the rioting Mau Mau “let off some steam” or something like that.
      The death of Gavin Cato was a terrible accident. It was not a deliberate act by the

      Chauffeur of the Grand Rabbi. Either he was an incompetent driver or someone caused him to lose control of the car. Several days of rioting and mayhem resulted in the gratuitous murders of two people: Yankel Rosenbaum and Vincent Graziosi.
      I’m sure that most of the rioters’ zeal had nothing to do with Gavin Cato’s death but was instead a demonstration of their hate for the Chassidim or just an excuse to “party”.

      • Who Me?

        “Lemrick Nelson”. That’s supposed to be a name?
        Did his addlepated, IQ 85, teenage dropout baby-momma mean to name him Limerick, maybe? A joke? Well, maybe she was right after all, come to think of it.

      • saxonsun

        “kill the Jews” should please some people on this website. Maybe they could join up with the blacks on that one. Oh, the dilemma!

        • brahms

          Where’s the dilemma? Organized Jewry certainly does not give a damn about the well-being or safety of the average non-politicized Jew. In fact, the more Jews get assaulted or killed as a direct results of the criminally reckless policies of the leaders of organized Jewry – the better for the latter

          Real power comes from being in positions of power, not cloistered in NYC all Jew neighborhoods. Look into these guys – what did they pull off?

      Or get to work alive.

  • Crime shoots up, De Blasio gets the blame, new mayor in 2017.

    Nice thinking, cops.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      De Blasio should get the blame for pandering to the black mob. But the violence and crime itself is the delinquents’ credit.

      • This is a matter of the cops assassinating the mayor without actually assassinating the mayor. Nice and Machiavellian. Right in my wheel house.

        • Lkoehn

          Seems more like flushing the toilet then an assassination.

      • Alucard_the_last

        He bred with one so you know what side of the fence he is on.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Hey – seems like DiBlackio is getting the New York he promised his blacks – chaos and anarchy.

      How long before “they” start boohooing about rampant “them on them” chaos?

    • SentryattheGate

      All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty(de Blasio) together again!

    • Georgia Boy

      More immediately, it puts financial pressure on the city, as dinging middle-class low-level offenders for money is a core source of income for municipalities. Those armies of criminal justice majors become clerks and court officials and notaries who pay their bills off the fines and fees that people like us pay for the occasional parking or speeding ticket. The unions are drying up their bread and butter, a powerful incentive for the rest of the system to see things their way.

      • That’s probably more like it. This seems to confirm:

        http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/200416/

        • Georgia Boy

          The book Arrest-Proof Yourself was a great eye-opener for me on how the system really works. And for a mainstream book it has a lot of racial realtalk, especially the chapter on so-called jits (author’s term).

  • Germanic Depressive

    How bad does it have to get before genetic explanations can actually start appearing, even if demonized and shouted down, on mainstream media?

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Until people lose confidence in the system, people will continue to believe the system’s egalitarian falsehoods. Our goal, therefore, has to be to destroy the system’s credibility and present rightist ideas as viable challengers.

      • buster

        Sadly, observation hasn’t worked on enough of the populous.

      • LHathaway

        “Our goal, therefore, has to be to destroy the system’s credibility”

        They’ve been doing that all by themselves for 50 years or longer. If anyone examines this nation over time by any measurable standard that is quite apparent.

    • JohnEngelman

      It is in the genes. It is all in the genes.

      • DD-762

        For black men, the problem is not only in their genes but also in their jeans.

        • The jean problem is easily corrected. So, for that matter is the gene issue. I prefer the “hoof and mouth disease” solution. Though I am no cattleman, I understand that if there isn’t any hoof and mouth disease, there isn’t going to be any.

          When do we get started?

          • TheCogitator

            I say we should utilize their propensity to be now oriented and pay them to be permanently sterilized. In a generation the problem will be solved.

          • Ludwig

            I have previously proposed that the government could save tax payers money by offering $10,000 to be voluntarily sterilized. Most minorities and low IQ whites would jump at the offer. It would be a eugenics program where everybody wins.

          • TheCogitator

            Exactly. No force is needed, it is all voluntary. Everyone should be happy.

          • John Smith

            They only neglect and abuse their spawn, who are most useful to them as a larger relief check. Skip to the end and pay them more to get cut for good.

          • Ludwig

            I never said you did.

          • Kenner

            Our commenter Anglokraut suggested $50K for sterilization for a woman without a child, and a reduced scale for women with one, or two children.
            The idea was to compete against the going financial incentives to breed on our dime.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            I don’t think that’s the best route. Are you sure you guys are not progressive? Because you are pretty fast and loose with ‘other people’s money’.

            If we were to end welfare, it wouldn’t be the former recipients we would catch the real hell from, it would be the pathologically altruistic among our own. I can’t see there not being a much cheaper way to get away with it. I don’t know what that is, but giving Shaniqua $50,000 to make Chad and Jennifer easy about something so far removed from them seems profligate to me. Surely they can be brought to indifference for less? As things unfold, they may get there for nothing and we might be able to end welfare as swiftly as Obama has rent our borders (only with popular consent).

          • Usually Much Calmer

            And I don’t follow you around to disagree with you either, Kenner! Easy familiarity is a bad habit of mine, please forgive it. I feel as though I know you is my only excuse.

  • libertarian1234

    Good for the cops.

    The leftist electorate keep electing oddballs, flakes and misfits as mayor, so they don’t deserve police protection.

    Giuliani was the only mayor who didn’t fit the kooky mold, and it’s a mystery to me how he was ever elected.

      • Robert Smith

        As long as he resigns it will probably last for a bit.

    • The Dude

      He was electing because negroes were running amok in New York in the early 90’s. Even more so than they’re now.

  • Tsar Alexander

    I am increasingly thinking that it is better for white people if the cops basically stop existing. I mean sure, crime will go up, but then the cops also won’t enforce the anarcho-tyranny, and people can start forming their own security solutions (like militia’s) when things start to get really bad.

    Also, for all my thoughts on post 9/11 policing, I side with the NYPD against their Marxist mayor in this dispute.

    • LHathaway

      Considering it is the police Union, it’s one Marxist faction vs another. At least de Blasio is likely not taking orders from Moscow. . .

    • RationaliseThis

      New Yorkers voted for this guy; a pompous radical.

      No policeman, no sane man, can work with de Blasio, that’s because he can’t be trusted, he hasn’t got anyone’s back, he’s the kind of politician that will put a cop through a show trial ruin his life, put him in jail to satisfy a political constituency.

      Liberals by nature stir up divisionary fights. That’s what de Blassio was doing I think, only it back fired.

      I think he’s a slime ball. I couldn’t immagine letting men I’m nominally leading down that much.

      • Michael Robert Ryan

        “he’s the kind of politician that will put a cop through a show trial
        ruin his life, put him in jail to satisfy a political constituency.”

        Just like the NYPD (and the rest of the NYC justice system) put Bernie Goetz through a show trial to ruin *his* life, right?

        A pox on both their houses.

          It was one of the infamous Morgentau’s that prosecuted him. At the time of the defensive shooting of the 4 screw driver equipped Black stand over thugs New York had homicide rates as high as Brazil and the current Sth Africa. Violent crime was about 1100/100,000 so one had a 1.1% chance of being a victim. Goetz is into vegetarianism, squirrel rescue and marijuana decriminalisation.

  • Samuel_Morton

    Our thin veneer of civilized society is eroding.

    This is a smart strategy by the NYPD. Blacks are their own worst enemy, and without constant surveillance and harsh penalties for breaking the law, their societies quickly resemble Nigeria or Zimbabwe. The law-abiding among them will be wishing for a Darren Wilson on every street corner instead of roaming hordes of feral youth.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

  • Ograf

    The police are trying to hold down the fort with millions of uncivilized, uncaring people who would kill without thinking twice about it, look for any reason to be violent and would rather steal what they get then work for it. Now if the police should arrest one of them without kissing their ass first it is the cops who are wrong, racist and killers. How anyone can blame the police for the situations must be delusional. We either need to turn everything over to them or start protecting our families and ourselves by any means necessary. George Orwell couldn’t have made this crap up.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    This was ordered from Eric Holder and Barack Obama. When two of the most powerful men in the world openly encourage negroes to “stay the course” it suggests to blacks that they’re right in challenging the police and disregarding laws. Black neighborhoods and the unlucky or unwise whites who wander into them are about to get a heavy dose of what it’s like to live without police protection. Another demand from blacks which will be honored.

    • gemjunior

      Exactly, well said. The only chance we have is for the cops to rebel against this by doing exactly what they are doing – just let the savages kill each other. Next thing Holder and Obammy will be singing a totally different song, exhorting the police to “fight crime” and “get things under control” when the hoods start going up in flames. They should take their sweet time about it and absolutely NOT put their lives at risk.

      Actually, if the police were to just disappear for a few years, we could solve the crime problem very quickly and cheaply.

      • Nonhumans

        It wouldn’t take years. Six months, maybe.

  • Ed

    I think this is great. There’s something for everyone. The cops don’t have to risk their lives for ingrates and the loony left gets the lax policing they’ve been demanding.

    • Samuel_Morton

      Totally agree.

    • The Dude

      Laws against anarchical parking and public urination exist for a reason. If they’re not enforced, things could get messy with time.

      I hope the cops keep this up for a while. Let the Left try the sloppiness it’s wishing for for a while.

      • John Smith

        The Left loves authority when directed against its enemies, such as white conservatives.

        • SentryattheGate

          Yeah, like the tyrannical IRS sicked on conservative groups!

        • Usually Much Calmer

          Loving authority when directed against enemies is more general than you suggest.

          • Vyncennt

            This may be true to a point, yet I see few true conservatives advocating for government stifling of progressive speech….

          • Usually Much Calmer

            Hard to go power mad when you don’t have any power.
            Is a true conservative like true Scotsman or can you tell me precisely what you mean by the term?

          • Vyncennt

            “Is a true conservative like true Scotsman or can you tell me precisely what you mean by the term?”

            This may be the first time I’ve been asked to define that term that WASN’T in an aggressive manner, lol….

            As I’m sure you’re aware, I can only provide a definition of “true conservative” as I personally believe it to be defined. I would not deem it appropriate to dictate my set of variables as the gold standard or to diminish yours if they were to differ.

            But here goes, for what it is worth…a true conservative:

            (a) Has no loyalty to the Democratic or Republican parties, only to his/her own values.

            (b) Does not wish to force others to submit to his/her set of values, only to be left alone to adhere to them as he/she sees fit. *see (c)

            (c) Does not wish to stifle the speech of those holding opposing views, yet wishes to be able to remove themselves from these views as he/she sees fit. The tolerance required to listen to, debate, or simply politely ignore opposing views is passed on to his/her children.

            (d) Possesses enough personal fiscal responsibility to provide for themselves and their families. He/she requests help only when direly necessary, feels ashamed to ask, and attempts to direct the request solely at family or friends. This pride of self reliance is passed on to his/her children.

            (e) Respects the sanctity of marriage, even if not currently married. He/she has some measurable element of sexual self control. He/she teaches sexual restraint, and the purpose of sexual restraint, to their children.

            (f) Respects the rule of law, even when he/she disagrees with a specific law. He/she understands the necessity of laws in a country of laws. He/she may even BREAK minor laws at times but understands the underlying necessity of law in general and the importance of adhering to it. *see (g)

            (g) Performs no or very few criminal acts and absolutely no major felonies (which I define as rape, torture, and murder, if you were curious). He/she feels regret if he/she made a mistake and performed a criminal act and strives to ensure it never happens again. Teaches this same repulsion to criminality to his/her children.

            (h) Holds him/herself to a rigid set of personal morals, principles, disciplines and values. A strong work ethic should be a prominent part of these values. He/she instills these into his/her children.

            (i) Tells the truth…even when it hurts to do so. This pairs well with the ability to be TOLD the truth, even a disagreeable one, and not become enraged or sullen. He/she instills this quality into his/her children.

            (j) Employs logic, accountability, and reason to every aspect of his/her life. He/she submits to facts even when they contradict his/her personal feelings on a matter. He/she may be influenced by emotion but is not controlled by it. He/she instills these qualities into his/her children.

            (k) Is willing to fight for all of the values listed above even when the immediate consequences for doing so may cause some distress. He/she attempts to explain to others the merits of these values when clarification is requested of them. He/she teaches their children to stand up for themselves and these values when challenged.

            I realize I could probably go on and on and on, lol….creating a generalized rule for each sub-category as I see fit, and rigidly defining what I believe to be a “true conservative.” Likely, I’d wind up simply offending half the people here who might not agree with any one point. The ten commandments I listed above (pun intended) embody the gist of my beliefs, even if not the specifics, and should at least provide a solid base to build upon. I hope I answered your question sufficiently.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            Thank you.

          • John Smith

            Yes, but the Left particularly pretends to be for freedom when it supports anything but.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            That’s true but that just makes the left’s abuse of power ironic. Conservative abuse of power is poetically uninteresting but abuse nonetheless. Corruptibility is near universal.

            Have a healthy and rewarding 2015, John Smith! Thank you for engaging with me.

      • IstvanIN

        Societies do quite well without parking or motoring regulations and we certainly do not need prohibitions on public urination or defecation. Look at Bill Gates favorite country, India, a marvelous place. And Kenya, the Presidents ancestral home is similar. Both first rate societies, yes indeed.

  • Who Me?

    Yesterday I thought (and posted) that the police ought to just take 2 weeks off, all of them, all at once. Well, they’re actually doing something even better. They are going to work, but they’re not doing anything, Absolutely brilliant!

    • Vyncennt

      “They are going to work, but they’re not doing anything,”

      Perhaps they’re simply following the example set by the employed segment of the black population….

  • MBlanc46

    I hate to think of New Yorkers being victimised by un-policed hoodlums, but de Blasio certainly deserves this sort of reaction from the NYPD.

    • Vyncennt

      “I hate to think of New Yorkers being victimised by un-policed hoodlums”

      New York City residents voted this abomination into office. Let them enjoy the fruits of their labors. The rural areas of New York state will be just fine this New Years Eve and will have plenty of interesting new to watch come the new year.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent..as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety

    Gee, who could have seen that coming??

    This is the NYPD retaliating against the mayor’s office – imagine the lost revenue from the citations that are not being written.

    Not to mention businesses losing business and the tourist trade going elsewhere.

    The city will now belong to the thugs…and the population is disarmed.

    My question is this: Which union will handle the pick-up of the dead bodies?

    Cancel my trip to NY City in the spring!!

    Sign posted in cars when Dinkins was mayor – and crime rampant.

  • LeonNJ

    I’m sure Bill O’Reilly will have something to say about this on his talking points when he comes back from his month long Christmas break.

  • bilderbuster

    The NYC coppers were out enforcing the tobacco tax laws when DeBlasio threw them under the bus and now the coppers are going to cut off the revenue spigot for the city.

    • Epiminondas

      Cops should put out word to thugs that it’s open season in liberal white neighborhoods.

      • bilderbuster

        The “Protesters” claim they’re going to “disrupt” the New Years Eve ceremony at Times Square tonight. I’m hoping for the coppers to be cracking some nappy headed, terrorist skulls and for their anti-racist friends to be bloodied as well.
        Cheers!

        • kikz2

          you really couldn’t pay me to stand ’round out in the cold, in a huge crowd of germy people in the first place.. but i sympathize with your sentiment.

          i’d hope everyone who has civilized frivolities/festivities to attend tonight has upped their ‘security consciousness’ and can ensure themselves a pleasantly uneventful and safe evening, Happy New Year, y’all! 😀

        • Vyncennt

          “I’m hoping for the coppers to be cracking some nappy headed, terrorist skulls and for their anti-racist friends to be bloodied as well.”

          You aren’t thinking far enough ahead. I’m hoping they do nothing whatsoever. The burnt hand teaches caution of fire much more effectively than the stern lecture.

  • Duke56

    And in the meantime, Reverend Al gets death threats and gibbers for police protection.

  • Capn Dad

    Can’t blame them. No cops in a city like New York???……best cure for gun control idiots I ever heard of. Got guns? No. HA! Deal with it.

    • Harry

      At least the people smart enough to hide their guns can now use them for home defense without worrying that SWAT will be kicking in their front door.

  • Yves Vannes

    What`s nauseating is that de Blasio could and probably will get reelected.

  • E. Newton

    NYC, and the rest of us, will get what we are able to vote for. Democracy will not work for us in a “multi-cutural” society. It just won’t. Which is why Obama is moving illegals and refugees into this country as fast as he possibly can. If you’re white person, a white male in particular, they want you working as a slave or preferably dead. Lots of white politicians are in on the calculation. They believe they’ll be invisible or they can run faster than you.

    • Capn Dad

      Yep the old saying “Birds of a feather…….etc”. Don’t mess with nature. Its going to be a hard lesson for white people to learn. As far as the politicians are concerned there is another old saying. Something like hoping the crocodile eats you last. I have a long time ago decided our (white people) time is nearly up. We will be more than likely bred into extinction. The only bright spot is not going down without a fight. As Colonel Kurtz (Apocalypse Now) said….”Embrace the horror.” There will be much “horror”.

      • kikz2

        my paternal gran-mama, Vesta, born in 1893 always said…. “red bird and blue bird don’t make a nest.”

        • Capn Dad

          A wise woman you’re Granny.

          • kikz2

            Thank ya, Capn. I’ll remember her tonight and tomorrow, as this is the yearly anniversary of her passing in the mid 80’s…New Year’s Eve.

    • Harry

      If you are a white male, they want you dead. Period.

    • Vyncennt

      “Lots of white politicians are in on the calculation. They believe they’ll be invisible or they can run faster than you.”

      These white politicians share a similar quality to the blacks they so cherish….the inability to project consequence of current actions or inaction into the future. Short term profits, of any type, now overshadow long term gains. This relatively new ideology has crept slowly out of the financial sector and into every aspect of their decision making.

  • Robert Slanton

    This whole incident shows how much effect a little push-back can have. A lone deranged black man killed two white cops and the whole system is about to grind to a halt.

    White people have become enslaved by their governments because modern whites are the biggest pushovers in all of human history.

    Just imagine how things would change if all the empty conservative talk about “2nd amendment aint about hunting” was really more than just talk.

    • Robert Smith

      It’s time citizens came down with ‘White Flu’ and started boycotting dealings with all blacks. Don’t use black firms,duh, or waitresses, salesmen, etc., and please don’t feed the charities outside of stores who almost exclusively cater to blacks.
      The only black thing I’d support is a return to Africa.

      • Charles Martel

        If only we could! I was tormented several times during the Christmas season by imbecilic black clerks when simply trying to pay for a purchase. I used a credit card so they didn’t even have to make change!!

        • Harry

          “Let’s git dis dum cracka to use his plastic so’s we’s cans skims his info.”

  • Erika525

    Thanks to police inaction, crime will fall since incidents will not be recorded. The liberal elite will naturally insist that this proves that the black underclass is peaceful and it is the mere presence of the police that instigates crime. Or, more generally, whites are the cause of black crime..Such is the nature of progress.

    • Vyncennt

      Nothing prompts progress like obfuscation!

  • KenelmDigby

    I wish these second-rate journalists would stop using that silly, loaded term, ‘assassination’ – which in actual fact is a term that can only properly be used in certain specified circumstances, involving targetted acts of terrorism aimed at leading political figures – when the correct English usage is that ancient, time honored, common or garden word murder, which, of course, is the word used to describe the deliberate killing of a human being.

  • Lkoehn

    Why would a cop go out of their way to enforce the law when if he was forced to use deadly force to preserve his own life his mayor, so glibly, will throw him under the bus? Cops need a city administrations that backs law and order and not groups that demonstrate against it.

  • Harry

    No cops? Time to play the Glock out game.

  • Doesn’t this just show what a good job de Blasio’s doing? Crime is down 66% and using the same budget. With that kind of performance, quite possibly he can become our next President instead of Hillary in ’16?

  • John R

    What? Police aren’t enforcing parking laws, traffic violations, and are only focusing on serious crimes? Wow! And I thought that a liberal mayor wouldn’t accomplish anything!

  • Vyncennt

    I wonder how much fun NYC is going to be on New Years Eve with little police response? January 1st may present us with a treasure trove of new news stories to cherish!

  • Vyncennt

    How would that justify a headline?

    You may as well have, “Fish prefer being submerged in water over exposure to dry land!”

  • Vyncennt

    Roaches do not scuttle about the moment you turn the lights off. They tentatively poke their heads out until they’re sure there’ll be no consequence…..

  • Vyncennt

    “This happened in an upscale transitional neighborhood in Houston where they have teams of cops who do nothing but shake down bums for pissing in the street”

    Give it some time and even that grain of protection will be a memory….

  • Georgia Boy

    When I was younger I met guys who would rather turn themselves in and do a few days in jail to resolve their tickets than work and pay the money. This obviously doesn’t benefit the city finances. To make money they preferably have to ticket people with jobs and cars, people with something to lose. It goes to a lot of why whites don’t fight back against things that blacks do, getting fired and blackballed from a line of work you worked years to train for is much worse than if you just have a semi skilled job or no job at all.

  • Hy Alldredge

    I’ve been reading quite a lot about this on mainstream conservative sites and I have to say I’m appalled at how gleeful many of the commenters seem about throwing an entire city under the bus so that they can gloat about how dumb liberal New York voters are. They’re as simplistic and vindictive as progressives. The people here on AmRen are by far more reasonable, civil, and sympathetic. And this is supposed to be a hate group…

    • RationaliseThis

      Sometimes fire is the only way to learn? It saddens me to think of innocent people getting killed but a breakdown was likely going to happen one way or another. At a certain point in corrupt countries the cops kind of give up.

  • PouponMarx

    Yeah, and no more racial profiling. Now, stop-and-frisk only bearded Amish and Asians in white lab coats. And stopped over with walkers grey haired grandmothers shuffling along at .20 mph. Nail’em for obstructing sidewalk traffic flow.

    When patrolling Buh-lack neighborhoods, ignore gun shots (“I thought it was only firecrackers”) and ignore screaming (“I thought it was singing soul music”), and cries of rape, (“I thought it was just her enjoying the bros socking it to her”).

    Welcome to the new policing as determined by Negroes and their Communist/Marxist/Jewish enablers.

  • Paleoconn

    As Nicholas Stix has said, the NY cops turned their backs on Whites a long time ago. Giuliani and Bloomberg made a dent on black on black crime, but blacks always assaulted Whites with virtual impunity.

  • Engelsman

    I am all in favour of a variation of Apartheid where the Liberal are forced to live in their favourite ethnic community. After all, this is what they want to enforce on the rest of us.

    If they manage to get back to reality and live long enough to awaken and regain their sanity, they can apply to be re-classified. Scars from stab wounds, broken bottles, and gunshot wounds and bed bugs will help their application to be declared rehabilitated.

    Regrettably, Amy Biehl did not survive her “cultural enrichment” so we do not know if she regained her sanity before the end…

    The Cultural Marxists responsible for causing this collective insanity of the weaker-minded members of the White Race should be sent to the morgue.
