The Chilling “Assassination” Attempts On NYPD Officers Expose The Horrors Of Dem-Run Cities

(Tea Party 247) – Two members of the New York City Police Department were shot over the weekend in a series of what are being described as assassination attempts.

The gunman who was suspected for being behind both incidents first fired on two officers who had been sitting in a parked vehicle and then stormed Bronx police station.

The man who opened fire on the 41st Precinct police station was later identified as 45-year-old Robert Williams.

“He immediately pulls out a gun and fires multiple rounds towards the desk area,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said during a press conference, as reported by the New York Post. “He then walks into an area beside that desk and fires several rounds.”

Williams surrendered after throwing himself on the floor when he’d run out of ammunition.

Lt. Jose Gautreaux was shot in the arm.

“I will point out that this coward immediately lay down, but only after he ran out of bullets,” Shea explained.

“This is not a liquor store robbery interrupted. This was a premeditated assassination attempt. It is only by the grace of God … that we are not talking about police officers murdered inside a New York City police precinct,” Shea continued.

The evening before, a man, believed to be Williams, fired on a police van which was parked on a Bronx street, according to CNN.

Shea said that the suspect first approached the van, which at the time had its emergency lights flashing, to ask a question.

After the officers replied, the suspect then opened fire on the vehicle, Shea explained.

He said that the officer who had been sitting in the driver’s seat shouted “gun!” when the suspect brandished his weapon, but neither of the officers returned fire.

The driver was struck in the neck, near his chin, but was able to drive out of range of the gunman so that his partner could take over control of the vehicle.

The gunman, at this point, fled.

“I just want to say his partner as well as him were heroic about how they handled the situation, and his partner, as far as getting him into the hospital in short order,” Shea said, according to the New York Post. “It was a phenomenal job, keeping their cool.”

Williams was paroled in 2017 but had a court date coming up on a new charge. Shea did not, however, offer any more details into current charges against Williams.

Shea quite rightly pointed out that this shooting came after high-profile anti-police demonstrations in New York City.

This also comes after months of open animosity towards police officers. Last summer, a series of videos went viral depicting citizens pouring water or throwing objects at police officers.

“Just remember these things are not unrelated,” Shea said.

“We have people marching in New York City last week and I condemned it and I condemn it right here again today — using profanities against the Police Department. Everyone should be speaking out against this, and you have to be careful about the words you use, whether it’s on social media or on written papers or speaking, because words matter and words affect people’s behavior.”

Meanwhile, New York City has unrolled bail reform initiatives which are putting criminals right back on the streets.

How can the Democrats expect police officers to be safe when they openly embrace anti-police sentiment and laws that empower criminals and tie the hands of our officers of the peace?

These people are sick.
