In case you missed it over the weekend, a maniac named Robert Williams attempted not one, but two assassinations of New York police officers in under twelve hours, injuring several of them. The second attack actually took place right inside a police station. Thankfully, none of the officers were killed and after the brazen attack at the station, the suspect was quickly apprehended. As one might expect, after you shoot up a bunch of cops and then another bunch of cops gets hold of you, the whole “apprehension” process can get a little bumpy. That’s particularly true when you’re still stupidly resisting arrest, as Williams was. If you click through and look at the picture of Williams in the hospital at the New York Post, you can see that he’s a bit worse for wear.
The fact that the alleged (I suppose we still technically have to say alleged) shooter is under wraps is the good news. But the bad news is that people are still going after the police in New York City. Who is to blame for that? Well, at least according to the NYPD Sergeants Union, it’s Mayor Bill de Blasio. They feel so strongly about this that they took to Twitter to “declare war” on Hizzoner and tell him not to bother visiting them in the hospital.
The NYPD’s Sergeants Benevolent Association on Sunday said its members are declaring “war” on Mayor Bill de Blasio after a gunman tried to assassinate cops in two incidents over less than 12 hours.
“Mayor DeBlasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you!” the union tweeted. “We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals.”
“You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you,” the union continued.
The SBA told the mayor that “NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you,” before adding: “This isn’t over, Game on!”
