Anti-police, supposedly pro-black protesters are ratcheting up the rhetoric, if graffiti scrawled in public places in New York City is to be taken seriously.
The protesters are overwhelmingly left-wing supporters of the Democratic party.
A police union in New York City shared images of disturbing anti-law-enforcement graffiti on a barrier and electrical box near the Brooklyn Bridge, according to a FOX News report. Shared by the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York, which represents 50,000 active and retired officers, the photos show the phrases “more dead cops” and “the only good cops are dead cops”.
“They have made themselves clear: when they say ‘Defund the Police,’ they *really* mean ‘Defund the Police’,” the union tweeted. “So when they say ‘More Dead Cops,’ what do you think they *really* mean?”
The tweet was posted shortly after New York City lawmakers voted this week to strip $1 billion in funding from New York’s police department, a move slammed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“I don’t know what it means,” Cuomo said during a press briefing Wednesday. “What does that mean? Does this mean I am less safe? Where did you take the billion dollars from? Does it mean I am more safe? Does it have any effect on police abuse? I don’t know what it means.”
