Just in case they remove the tweet I decided to embedd an image of it. New York City this is a significant part of your actual police. @AOC
@SenGillibrand @GovChristie
And also take the time to point out some rather strange correlations. https://twitter.com/SBANYPD/status/1199834724103065601?s=19
Remember those initial reports on @CNNi and other networks quoting police officers stating that the recent blackout was somehow caused by a manhole fire/blowout a claim that was repeated by away on campaign mayor Deblasio? So did he get fed faulty information?

"The power outage was caused by a manhole fire, according to tweets from the NYPD and the mayor.

There was nothing to suggest anything deliberate, according to a senior fire official and a senior NYPD official who spoke on a condition of anonymity."

"Preliminary reports mirror what governor Cuomo was quick to point out to news reporters after consulting with experts mid-crisis;

"That system detects electrical faults and directs circuit breakers to isolate and de-energize those faults," the company said in a statement."
"Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was campaigning for president in Iowa, said it appears the outage was the result of a mechanical problem in the electrical grid".

Deblasios absence prompted the (more than a bit) Trump friendly NY POST to run one hell of a headline.
"the questions that should be on everybody’s mind should be in the age of internet connection and cell phones, why did it take over an hour for any news agency to report this ? Why did it take until late last night to tell New Yorkers what area’s were effected, when the Daily-"
"-Mail had this information? And how does Con Ed not know what happened? It seemed Verizon had a clue because a friend of mine who owns a business was sent an e-mail from Verizon stating they expected outage last night and this was before the blackout." https://t2conline.com/what-doesnt-make-sense-about-the-nyc-blackoutt/

"It was one of the biggest riots in New York City history.

"-destroyed in multiple acts of vandalism. The protesters stormed up the steps of City Hall, occupying the building. They then streamed onto the Brooklyn Bridge, where they blocked traffic in both directions, jumping on the cars of trapped, terrified motorists."

"Many of the protestors were carrying guns and openly drinking alcohol.
Yet the uniformed police present did little to stop them. Why? Because the rioters were nearly all white, off-duty NYPD officers. They were participating in a Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association-"

"-demonstration against Mayor David Dinkins’ call for a Civilian Complaint Review Board and his creation earlier that year of the Mollen Commission, formed to investigate widespread allegations of misconduct within the NYPD."
"Newsday columnist Jimmy Breslin described the racist conduct in chilling detail:

"-his mouth, ‘How did you like the n*****s beating you up in Crown Heights?’”
The off-duty cops were referring to a severe beating Breslin suffered while covering the 1991 Crown Heights riots in Brooklyn.
Breslin continued: “Now others began screaming …"

"‘How do you like what the n*****s did to you in Crown Heights?’
“ ‘Now you got a n****r right inside City Hall. How do you like that? A n****r mayor.’"
Wow @Google search would not find this article and @Twitter would not re-direct me to anything but the @wapo homepage after following this embedded link👇 and then ultimately searching for the exact title. 😳 Undoubtedly some Trumpo-Nazis wear uniform. https://twitter.com/Fogfaaja/status/1199898800665563136?s=19

Since it would seem as though the NYPD has decided to stop "protecting & serving" until they get their 1 billion in funding back, as an organized group of mafia hitmen cruise around killing random civilians. Let's look at how these two things connect.

This is how NYPD is run, it's not an isolated incident, it's not just a culture issue, it's not just infiltration by organized crime. It is wholly co-opted by organized crime. If you doubt that for even a second, I suggest you read this entire thread.

Who was it that literally incited a police riot against mayor Dinkins the first black mayor of New York? Giuliani literally created the "COMMISSION". #blacklivesmatter #defundpolice #policebrutality #georgefloydprotests
This is who runs NYC👇🗽 https://twitter.com/Fogfaaja/status/1155642120528703489?s=19
Addendum 1/2:

This was all they ever had to charge the US mafia families through RICO.

It was more about busting a labour Union, than a crime ring. Giuliani basically took down the most powerful counterforce to the influx of Latin American drug lord's.
