‘Written by an NYPD Officer on the front line last night. Please make this go viral. The world needs to know.’
“Almost 32 years with NYPD, I have never felt such disgust, hopelessness, and anger. Manhattan was occupied territory tonight, we were totally outnumbered by miscreants. They were brazen, laughing and rampant. It was so prevalent there was nothing a police officer could do according to the rules and expectations of the Democrat Party. Our leaders took knees of solidarity with “protesters” during the day, and then had a d… forced down their throats at night. Zero leadership. Zero courage. Complete and utter pandering. And I heard the Bronx was even worse. I didn’t hear one person say the name George Floyd. It was complete anarchy and savagery. New York, wait until you wake up and see video of Manhattan. It will look like Iraq. If you don’t beg Donald Trump to take charge of these democrat cities across America, your country will be lost. The shit I saw today disgusted me more than the shit I saw on 9-11. Wasn’t even close. Going to bed. Good night.What normal person burns businesses, loots, throws bricks, and defaces churches?”
Let me add what I heard: A friend who lives in Chelsea reported the “protesters” were hollering profanities about gay men as they smashed up storefronts. I’m not in the mood to quote them accurately. It makes me kind of complicit in hate speech, if I do. Unless of course I am Tom Wolfe.
Here is a frightening report from a New York resident published in the New York Post.
I’m heading down to midtown to see for myself.
