NYPD Investigates Threats to Kill Officers on New Year’s Eve, Sources Say

Murray Weiss, DNA Info, December 31, 2014

The NYPD is investigating several threats to kill NYPD officers during New Year’s Eve celebrations, DNAinfo New York has learned.

Sources say there are several gang members on social media calling for New Year’s Eve to be “Kill a Pig Night” so that it will become “The New Year’s Eve Massacre 2014.”

The threats primarily come in tweets baring a host of vicious anti-NYPD hash tags including #@deadcopseveryday, #onlydeadcops, #wingsonpigs and #laughatyourdeaths, according to law enforcement sources.

One tweet reads: “Dear Police, Don’t think this cant happen again” accompanied by a photo of armed Blank Panthers from the 1960s and 1970s, sources say.


Sources say the NYPD has received 63 threats since the [Ismaaiyl Brinsley] shootings and there have been 16 arrests connected to them.
