We need to nip this in the bud

Dear Neighbor,

Multiple videos have surfaced online of New York Police Officers being doused in water by people as a sign of disrespect in a growing social media challenge.

MAKE NO MISTAKE – these officers were attacked because of the badge and uniform they wear.

These actions are a result of extreme Democrat politicians spouting anti-police rhetoric to gain cheap political points. 

Our law enforcement officers deserve better than that. 

These criminals have been emboldened by some district attorneys’ refusal to prosecute certain low-level crimes, as well as recently enacted state and local laws requiring officers to issue tickets for certain offenses instead of making arrests.

While we can’t control what they do, we have sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr to request the Department of Justice investigate federal hate crime charges and pursue criminal charges for assaulting a police officer for those involved in the attack. 

Assemblyman Michael Reilly and Assemblyman Mike LiPetri, have a new bill that would make it a Class E felony to throw or spray water, or any other substance, against an on-duty police or peace officer.

Will you join us in condemning this type of behavior for the sake of our communities?

Until next time,


Tom
