NYPD union rips de Blasio over Eric Garner cop case, warns police department is ‘frozen’

The New York Police Department union on Friday tore into Mayor Bill de Blasio over his handling of the case of the officer charged in the 2014 death of Eric Garner — accusing him of creating a “chilling effect.”

“Over the last number of years since this mayor walked into City Hall, I’ve stood at this podium and said [de Blasio’s] decisions will have a chilling effect on New York City police officers,” a furious New York City Police Benevolent Association President Patrick J. Lynch told reporters Friday. “Well, the criminal advocates have gotten what they want — the police department is frozen.”

NYPD COP ACCUSED IN ERIC GARNER CHOKEHOLD CASE SHOULD BE FIRED, JUDGE SAYS

The union, which represents the 24,000 rank-and-file of New York’s Finest, has had a tense relationship with the left-wing mayor, particularly in relation to de Blasio’s comments about policing and race. But that has deteriorated even further with his handling of the Garner case and Friday’s decision by a NYPD judge to recommend the officer involved be fired.

Garner died in 2014 after his arrest for the sale of untaxed cigarettes. After Garner refused to be handcuffed, Officer Daniel Pantaleo took him down using what prosecutors said was a banned chokehold. The officer’s attorney argued the hold used an approved “seat belt” technique.

Garner died of cardiac arrest and video of him saying “I can’t breathe” during the confrontation before passing out went viral. It became a rallying cry for the “Black Lives Matter” movement, with activists using the incident as a example of alleged racist discrimination by police. (Garner was black; Pantaleo is white.)

A grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo, and last month the Justice Department ruled against the Civil Rights Division’s recommendation that charges be brought against him. But on Friday, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Trials Rosemarie Maldonado recommended Pantaleo be fired.

The case now goes to Police Commissioner James O’Neill, who will decide later this month whether to accept the recommendation.

De Blasio, who is running for president, angered officers when he commented on the pending case during Wednesday’s Democratic primary debate, when he promised the Garner family would get “justice.”

“I know the Garner family,” de Blasio said at the debate in Detroit. “They’ve gone through extraordinary pain. They are waiting for justice and are going to get justice. There’s finally going to be justice.”

NYPD OFFICERS PROTEST DE BLASIO OUTSIDE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE: ‘CAN’T RUN THE CITY, CAN’T RUN THE COUNTRY’

De Blasio was surrounded by other Democrats demanding Pantaleo be fired, and was interrupted by protesters demanding the same.

“How dare the mayor say it was a clean process. How dare the mayor say ‘I didn’t give my opinion, I didn’t talk to anyone,’” Lynch said, before addressing de Blasio. “You didn’t have to talk to anyone, you’re talking to the cameras, you talked to the nation the other day and you said justice will be served for that family and you sent your message to the judge advocate.”

Approximately 20 police officers followed de Blasio to Detroit, where they protested over pay, alleging that they are paid on average 30 percent less than other police forces in the region.

“Can’t run the city, can’t run the country,” the officers chanted outside the site of the debate.

But it is what cops see as de Blasio’s failure to back his officers that has angered the union the most. On Friday, Lynch said de Blasio has lost the confidence of the force and “brought the police department to the gutter.”

He also warned officers that the case shows they won’t have the backing of City Hall if they are put in a situation where they have to put their hands on an alleged perpetrator.

“Don’t believe when they give you that story in the academy, ‘let’s get out there and do it for the gipper’ because they’re not going to back you,” he said. “The gipper’s not going to be there, the mayor’s not going to be there.”

“Is the police commissioner going to be there?” he asked. “We’ll find out.”

Off-duty Florida police officer jumps into action after SUV goes airborne, hits trees before landing

An off-duty Florida police officer jumped into action after witnessing an SUV hitting the bank of a driveway and going airborne Friday morning.

Reserve Ponce Intel patrol Officer Rich Gardner was on State Road 415 in New Smyrna Beach when he saw a white SUV drift across the road before it hit a back on a driveway and go airborne. The vehicle hit some trees before landing in a ditch.

Gardner and another man ran to the smoking SUV and helped the two people – a man and a woman – in the vehicle, according to Fox 35.

“There was a female inside that was at the closest point to the door, and she was in some pain, she said she had back pain. I just asked her to grab my arm, so I could pull her out. We got her out first and then the driver ended up jumping out on his own,” Gardner said.

The police officer stayed with the pair until a nurse took over for them. He told Fox 35 that he believes they’re both going to survive.

“It’s almost surreal to see something like that,” Garner added, “You don’t expect to see something like that in your normal course of the day.”

It’s still not clear why they drifted across the oncoming lane.

Butch Robidoux, an office specialist at the Ponce Inlet Police Department told Fox News they are aware of the incident but had no comment because the Gardner was off-duty at the time.

Georgia cop holds on to suspect’s vehicle as he’s dragged onto freeway after traffic stop, video shows

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6067669277001_6067673883001-vs Georgia cop holds on to suspect's vehicle as he's dragged onto freeway after traffic stop, video shows fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/georgia fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc e0b5b455-103c-5b6b-8440-9560b5abf3ba David Aaro article

Dramatic dash camera video shows the moment when a Georgia police officer jumped into the driver’s side window of a fleeing vehicle following a routine traffic stop on Thursday.

Dunwoody Polie Officer Nathan Daley had pulled over a 2019 Chevrolet Malibu after the driver, identified as 35-year-old Derric Simpson, allegedly violated the state’s hands-free law. According to authorities, Simpson put the vehicle in gear, attempting to flee and Daley quickly jumped into the driver’s side window.

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is seen in the video swerving and eventually smashing into vehicles to shake the officer as he traveled along the entrance ramp to the I-285 freeway. As he was left hanging out of the vehicle, Daley reportedly told Simpson to stop the car multiple times, but he wouldn’t stop, according to the Dunwoody Police Department.

WOMAN SHOT BY TEXAS COP WAS FIRE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER

Immediately after entering the freeway, Simpson made a sharp left turn, merging into traffic and clipping a white Ford van, which caused Daley to tumble into the middle of the busy road.

Georgia officers eventually caught up with Simpson further down the freeway after the Malibu was involved in another crash just before Roswell Road. He ditched the wrecked vehicle and fled to a forested area near the freeway, and was later taken into custody.

Simpson was arrested on multiple charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated battery, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer and trafficking ecstasy, the Dunwoody Police Department said.

THREE ARRESTED IN MURDER OF OFF-DUTY LAPD OFFICER

Daley was taken to the hospital where he was treated, released and is expected to make a full recovery. He posted a video message while draped in a hospital gown, calling the injuries just a “little nick nack”

“It does look as bad as it feels, but you know me, I will bounce back 10 times stronger,” Daley told the local community. “I love you guys, thank you so much for your support.”

“I accept donations in the form of sweats,” he added.

Woman shot by Texas cop was fire captain’s daughter

A woman who was fatally shot by a Texas police officer said to be aiming at her dog has been identified as a local fire captain’s daughter.

The Tarrant County medical examiner identified the dead woman as 30-year-old Margarita Brooks; the Arlington Fire Department confirmed on Friday that Brooks was Fire Capt. Troy Brooks’ daughter, according to reports by NBC 5.

Emergency responders and the officer, 25 — he’d completed his training and was released from supervised patrol on July 1 — were responding to a welfare check in Arlington, where Margarita Brooks was reportedly passed out in a grassy area around 5:20 p.m., the Arlington Police Department said in a statement Thursday.

TEXAS OFFICER FATALLY SHOOTS HOMELESS WOMAN AFTER FIRING AT CHARGING, UNRESTRAINED DOG: REPORTS

In body camera footage released Friday, the young officer can be heard calling out to Brooks, “Ma’am…are you OK? … Is that your dog? Can you get up?” A small dog, a beagle-Labrador retriever mix belonging to Brooks, appeared to charge at the officer.

That officer, whose name has not yet been released, drew his gun, shouting, “Get back,” before firing three times.

The woman can be heard screaming; the bullets apparently grazed the dog but hit Brooks in the chest.

She was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said Friday that criminal and administrative investigations are ongoing; at the moment, the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave.

“Preliminary information leads investigators to believe the woman was struck by gunfire from the officer,” the statement said.

“Our hearts are broken for the Brooks family and the police officer involved,” Johnson said. “Clearly, this is not the outcome our officer wanted or the department wanted. Ms. Brooks was never the target of force. We know as police officers that we are responsible for our actions.”

Chief: Alabama officer accused of fake shooting in alleged case of ‘stolen valor’

An Alabama police officer is accused of staging a shooting and making a fake a distress call last month in what his police chief called a case of “stolen valor” and “stolen honor.”

Birmingham Police Officer Keith Buchanan was arrested Thursday and charged with making a false report and discharging a firearm in the city limits, Al.com reported. He had already been placed on administrative leave when he was taken into custody.

Prosecutors believe Buchanan notified a police dispatcher that he was making a traffic stop just after 1 a.m. on July 21 near the city’s border with Tarrant. Minutes later, he allegedly put out a call about shots fired and never finished his radio transmission.

Dispatchers were unable to reach him for close to 30 minutes. A Tarrant officer found Buchanan’s patrol vehicle with bullet holes but couldn’t find him.

He was ultimately located uninjured a short distance away near railroad tracks.

Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith said Thursday that an investigation couldn’t corroborate Buchanan’s story of events. He was relieved of his duties last week.

“This officer did a lot on that night to present a false image of heroism,” Smith told reporters during a news conference. “He endangered the lives of the community by discharging his firearm, and also other officers, as they responded from all over the city to be at his side and do everything that they can to help.”

Smith said Buchanan’s actions only helped to tear down the trust built by the police department and the community. He called it a case of “stolen valor” and “stolen honor,” a reference to those who lie about heroic acts  to reap profit or gain accolades.

Buchanan faced discipline issues in 2016, 2015 and 2014, for filing a false report and keeping a stolen gun from a theft suspect for four months without notifying a supervisor, according to the news outlet.

Tulsi Gabbard: Kamala Harris ignored challenge from me, lobbed ‘cheap’ smears instead

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, ripped fellow 2020 contender Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., claiming she refused to answer direct criticism of her record.

Harris is the wrong candidate to be heralding a record of criminal justice reform because of her record as a former California state attorney general, Gabbard claimed Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Voters deserve to know the truth,” she said.

“The decision that the American people have before them is a critical one. The decision that Democrats have before them about who their nominee should be is a very important one.

TULSI GABBARD RIPS KAMALA HARRIS ON HER RECORD AS CALIFORNIA PROSECUTOR DURING SECOND DEBATE

“They deserve to know the truth about the candidates that are before them, and especially on the issue of criminal justice reform that’s impacting so many people across this country because it is so broken and it is an unjust criminal justice system.”

During Wednesday’s debate, the Gabbard challenged Harris’ record, claiming she imprisoned hundreds of people for marijuana violations then made light of her past reported use of cannabis during a more recent interview.

“Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” Gabbard said.

More from Media

“There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

She also blasted Harris for maintaining the cash bail system which, she argued, disproportionately hurt poor people. Gabbard accused Harris of keeping prisoners beyond their sentence in order to use them as “cheap labor” as well as blocking evidence that would have “freed an innocent man from death row.”

KAMALA HARRIS’ MARIJUANA RECORD: HOW THE CALIFORNIA DEMOCRAT’S VIEWS ON POT HAVE EVOLVED

In a February appearance on New York’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show, Harris spoke about her opinion of marijuana.

“I think it gives a lot of people joy. And we need more joy in the world,” Harris said at the time.

In her interview with Carlson, Gabbard said the California Democrat owed an apology to some of those she helped put behind bars.

She added the state AG role offered an opportunity for Harris to effect change in criminal justice reform.

“Senator Kamala Harris was in a position to be able to make a difference on that when she was serving as Attorney General,” she said.

“As I pointed out last night, she did not fulfill that promise that she claims to have, which is to be a champion for the people, a champion for the oppressed. In fact, she did the exact opposite.

“She made decisions that ended up hurting people.”

In addition, Gabbard said Harris’ campaign “smeared” her following the debate.

“The responses from her and her campaign… was basically to lob cheap smears and basically say that I’m a traitor or a foreign agent or a Trojan horse or whatever.”

“This is concerning on many levels about how a Senator Harris would govern as president, that if there are those who are critics of her or her record — you know for me I’m a two-time veteran of Middle East deployments, I’m a soldier currently serving in the Army, I’m a sitting member of Congress — and she’s smearing me in this way. Imagine what she would do to anyone else.”

At least two protesters stood and began waving large white cloths with slogans scrawled on them during President Trump’s Cincinnati, Ohio campaign rally on Thursday.

Trump was in the midst of remarks on how he believes Democratic leadership in some urban areas lead to their decline.

“The Democrat record is one of neglect and corruption and decay — total decay,” he said.

Democrats have taxed and regulated jobs and opportunity out of these cities — they’ve squeezed the blood out of them. So many of these mayors… are in jail.”

TRUMP DECRIES ‘WASTED MONEY’ ON INNER CITIES AT OHIO CAMPAIGN RALLY

When Trump claimed Democratic lawmakers care more about illegal immigrants than their own constituents, the trio began making a commotion at stage left.

One banner read, “immigrants built America,” while another had a crude slogan that has at times been used as part of anti-ICE protests across the country.

Two Trump supporters appeared to confront two protesters, as a man exchanged words with a male protester.

Another man wearing a suit leaned over to snatch a female protesters’ cloth.

Amid the commotion, the typically large crowd in the arena began chanting, “Trump, Trump, Trump,” as law enforcement sought to remove the protesters.

One young protester flashed the crowd an obscene gesture during the proceedings

Those chants transitioned into, “USA, USA, USA” and cheers that erupted as the protesters were led away.

During the incident, the president leaned forward on the dais to ask supporters in the front row if Cincinnati had a Democratic mayor.

After nodding, he returned to the microphone and said, “You must have a Democrat mayor?”

“Well, that’s what happens,” he continued, transitioning into a commentary on the size of the crowd in the arena and those who were unable to get in.

The city’s mayor, John Cranley, is a Democrat. He is in his second term and previously lost two bids to unseat the area’s congressional lawmaker, U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, — in 2000 and 2006.

Top US official says border is ‘still in crisis,’ even as Mexico steps up its assistance

The crisis at America’s southern border is continuing, even as Mexico steps up enforcement measures to help, according to a top U.S. official.

The number of migrants apprehended at the border dropped for the month of June, but that figure is on track to cross the million mark by the end of the year, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said Thursday on “Special Report.” He called that projected figure “unprecedented.”

“What complicates the matter … is the demographic.”

To that end, Perez blamed immigrant smuggling organizations, which are “really fueling the crisis.”

“Incredibly vulnerable populations … are being taken advantage of,” he said.

Perez said America’s southern neighbor is working to secure its southern border with Guatemala, and to take on the mass migration problems in its own country. In June, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said his country must help Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence, even as it increases security and makes other revisions to deter migrants from passing through Mexico on route to the U.S. At the time, Mexico planned to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala to slow the arrival of migrants.

A checkpoint near Ciudad Cuauhtemoc was manned by nearly 10 soldiers with black armbands together with federal police and immigration officers. The officials pulled at least two suspected migrants lacking required documents from vehicles.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker praised a group of protesters who interrupted his opening statement Wednesday during the second round of Democratic debates to call for the arrest of a New York City police officer accused of using a fatal chokehold on Eric Garner.

Booker was speaking at the Detroit debate when several members of the audience began chanting, “Fire Pantaleo,” referring to Daniel Pantaleo, who was accused of choking Garner in 2014 during an arrest for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes.

While on the ground, Garner repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe!” That became a rallying cry against police brutality.

Booker paused during the interruption while the protesters were escorted from the building.

“To the folks who were standing up to Mayor de Blasio a few minutes ago—good for you. That’s how change is made. #DemDebate,” he tweeted later, referring to another of the Democratic candidates for president, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The shouting was also heard when de Blasio gave his opening remarks.

“To the protesters in the audience today: I heard you. I saw you. I thank you. This is what democracy looks like and no one said it was pretty. #DemDebate,” he later tweeted.

Garner’s death, along with others involving white police officers and people of color, sparked the Black Lives Matter movement. Earlier this month, the Justice Department announced it would not charge Pantaleo in Garner’s death.

A Staten Island grand jury also declined to indict Pantaleo.
