Rumors are circulating that New York City police officers appear to be planning a strike on July 4 in response to protesters calling for police departments across America to be defunded.
The New York Post reported that two messages have been circulating throughout the city’s police department, encouraging police officers to stay home on the 4th of July, Independence Day.
One of the messages reportedly says the strike will begin at 3 pm on July 4, ‘NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops,’ the message reads, according to The Post.
The message continues, ‘Cops that say we can’t strike because of the Taylor Law…The people and this city don’t honor us so why honor them.’
I don’t usually endorse police strikes, and am not a fan of strikes in general, but in this case, I think it will be beneficial for people to understand what a life without police would be like. They seem not to grasp reality and need a spanking to get their heads straight.
They’re completely miss treated by politicians in the media. And while there are some bad apples in any profession, the idea that all cops are racist is absolute garbage. The other strike and let New York have a utopian police free day. I think they would change their mind about not wanting to have any police around pretty quick.
I think this country needs a rude awakening about the value of the police. We are overreacting to recent events. I believe police reforms are necessary. I believe George Floyd didn’t have to die. I believe the Atlanta case is the perfect case to illustrate the perils that police face on a daily basis.
It could have been a case used to show life and death dilemmas that police must resolve by making critical decisions under extreme stress in seconds. But no, the district attorney made things worse with those preposterous charges before a formal investigation was even completed. And now it is likely that a reasonable and fair jury will find that officer not guilty, which will fuel more riots.
Those two Atlanta police officers did their jobs far better than that corrupt DA who is using this case do deflect the public away from his corruption and lawlessness.
I think police should strike.
Let the mayors and city councilors take the heat for lawlessness in their streets with no police to help. Let these feckless virtue-signaling dirtbags in leadership positions destroy themselves politically.
If that is the world they want, they should get a taste of it. I see leftists living some fantasy that they will be empowered when they will be rolled over by the serious criminals.
Kind of like the neckbeards who believe that they will be totally fine during a zombie apocalypse because they have a authentic katana.
The sane homeowners who own America’s 2.5 guns per family will be waiting for the morons to cross those private property lines when they move on the suburbs. These protestors will need a literal army to get far.
On October 7, 1969, the Montreal police went on strike in what came to be known as the Murray-Hill riots. It took 3 hours and 20 minutes for the first bank to be robbed. I’m setting the over/under at 90 minutes for NYC if they all walk off the job.
