NYPD on Edge: “I’m concerned about my safety. I want to go to home to my wife and kids”

Thanks to Mayor Social Justice, now the NYPD is afraid to do their jobs. Great work, Bill!

With cops on edge following the assassination of two patrol officers on a Brooklyn street, many officers have started turning a blind eye to some minor crimes, sources told The Post, while a union mandate that two patrol cars respond to all police calls has led to slower response times to non-emergencies.

“I’m not writing any summonses. Do you think I’m going to stand there so someone can shoot me or hit me in the head with an ax?” one cop said Sunday, referring to the Dec. 20 slayings and another recent attack on the NYPD.

“I’m concerned about my safety,” the cop added. “I want to go to home to my wife and kids.”

An NYPD supervisor noted, “My guys are writing almost no summonses, and probably only making arrests when they have to — like when a store catches a shoplifter.”

And the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association directive for cops to respond with at least two patrol cars has resulted in a manpower shortage that’s delaying response times to non-emergencies — such as burglaries or car crashes without injuries — to as much as four hours, sources said.

Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton predicted a long, cold war between Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NYPD’s rank and file Sunday, while admitting that morale among cops was so low, the problem could no longer be denied.

Bratton said cops across the country also “feel under attack,” including from “the federal government at the highest levels.”

Well, they are, and we have the clowns de Blasio, Obama, Holder and Sharpton to blame.

Bratton, for his part, acknowledges sitting near the odious Sharpton wasn’t a good idea.

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton admitted it was “probably a bad idea” to appear with the Rev. Al Sharpton for a summer sit-down at City Hall, a report said.

Paraphrasing Bratton, New York magazine’s latest issue reported that he wishes he hadn’t sat “on one side of the mayor with the Rev. Al Sharpton on the other” at the controversial July 31 roundtable discussion convened after the police-chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Afterward, Bratton justified his attendance by saying he would “shake hands with the devil if necessary to keep this city calm, safe and secure.”

    Why don’t they quit they’re bitching and resign already? They aren’t military. They won’t face jail for refusing to follow orders. If diCommio has created an environment (an environment certainly not created by police abusing authority with absolute immunity and routinely getting away with outright murder) where they feel their lives are constantly in danger (because the vest, the gun, the taser, the club, the mace, the MRAPs, and the drones are standard issue for all non-dangerous occupations), then quit.

    These are the same pricks who unquestionably follow orders to enforce things like the SAFE act and their insane tobacco task forces, the same cowards who can watch Joe Lozito getting stabbed over and over again and not do a damn thing about it because cops do not have an obligation to protect citizens, who shot 9 innocent bystanders just trying to stop one person. These are NYC cops crying like little girls because now their job carries the same amount of danger as other organized crime syndicates.

    We (people on the right) have no problem noticing that the teachers unions are corrupt and protect bad teachers who sometimes touch little kids. Yet we bend over backwards to make sure the police union has a straight shot to sodomize us with a broom handle. They protect murderers. Stop kissing their ass.

    Don’t be on diCommio’s side. But that doesn’t mean you join the union. Like when the Nazis were fighting the Soviets or when Iran and Iraq were going at it, you sit back and hope they both lose.
