The man caught on camera chasing down Black Lives Matter demonstrators with a Wolverine-type claw in Queens is now charged with attempted murder, authorities announced Thursday.

Frank Cavalluzzi, 54, was filmed chasing protesters in Whitestone on Tuesday while wearing a glove affixed with four long, serrated-edged blades — before getting into his SUV, driving onto the sidewalk and attempting to mow them down, prosecutors said.

“I will kill you,” he allegedly yelled at the protesters, according to prosecutors.

Cavalluzzi, whom police sources called a known troublemaker in the area, was arrested Thursday morning.

He was later arraigned on a laundry list of charges, including attempted murder in the second degree, attempted assault in the first and second degree, reckless endangerment in the first degree, menacing in the second degree, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree.

“In a burst of anger and rage, this defendant allegedly sought to kill protesters who were peacefully assembled and exercising their right to free speech,” Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement.

“No one at any time should infringe upon another’s Constitutionally-protected freedoms and doing so with the intent to injure and maim is criminal.”

Katz said it was “amazing” that no one had been injured in the melee.

Queens Criminal Court Judge Mary Berjarano set Cavalluzzi’s bail at $100,000. His next court appearance is set for July 2.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.

A New York woman was seen handing out baby raccoons to locals outside a 7-Eleven, prompting a search for the animals due to rabies concerns, health officials said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred at the convenience store in Niagara Falls, N.Y., about a week ago. Authorities said nine of the primarily nocturnal creatures were handed out. So far, seven have been recovered. Officials are still on the hunt for “two potentially rabid raccoons.”

“Possession of raccoons is illegal except by a licensed rehabilitator and presents a potential rabies hazard to anyone in direct contact with the animal,” said the Niagara County Department of Health in a press release.

PREGNANT ELEPHANT DIES AFTER REPORTEDLY BEING FED PINEAPPLE FILLED WITH EXPLOSIVES

The department warned residents that the rabies virus is fatal to people unless it’s treated in a timely fashion. They added it also “nearly always” results in the death of an animal not protected by vaccination to the disease.

“Please contact the Niagara County Department of Health at (716) 439-7444 immediately with any information regarding the location of these raccoons so that we may conduct a complete rabies investigation,” the release added.

Health officials recommend not feeding, touching, or adopting wild animals — including stray dogs or feral cats. They added that you should make sure your pets are up to date on their rabies vaccinations because they “serve as a buffer between rabid wildlife and human.”

Search for the raccoons has been conducted by health officials in cooperation with the Niagara Falls Police Department and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Maloney challenger’s campaign fundraising email: ‘F&$# THE POLICE.’

Westlake Legal Group Carolyn-Maloney-Lauren-Ashcraft- Maloney challenger's campaign fundraising email: 'F&$# THE POLICE.' Michael Ruiz fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/new-york-city fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics fox news fnc/politics fnc article 90e58bf6-a614-5da5-9fdf-81bdecd9b18f

The primary challenger to longtime Democratic New York City Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney sent out a fundraising email Thursday that declared, “F&$# THE POLICE.”

“We are living the results of a completely broken criminal justice system,” the email from the Lauren Ashcraft campaign begins.

Ashcraft, a self-described people-powered progressive Democrat, is one of three long-shot primary challengers seeking to replace Maloney in a heavily Democratic district — similar to how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseated longtime incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary upset victory two years ago.

OCASIO-CORTEZ BACKS ENGEL’S CHALLENGER IN PRIMARY

One of Ashcraft’s key campaign platforms is criminal justice reform, and in a statement to Fox News, she doubled down on her position.

“The entire criminal justice system is racist,” she said, “This is about the country needing rigorous criminal justice reform.”

She slammed lawmakers in both parties for their approach to the issue over the years.

“We constantly see videos of black people being attacked and killed,” she said. “Police are murdering those they are sworn to protect. Republicans and Democrats alike — including Rep. Maloney — have failed to enact common-sense reform. Instead, they’re responsible for destructive policies such as the 1994 Crime Bill.”

For her part, Maloney, who helped spearhead the push for federally funded benefits for New York City’s first responders in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, has publicly supported a slew of House proposals that aim to achieve criminal justice reforms similar to the ones Ashcraft singled her out in the email for not co-sponsoring.

CAROLYN MALONEY ELECTED TO REPLACE ELIJAH CUMMINGS LEADING HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

She posted a list of them in a lengthy Twitter thread on Wednesday, a day before the fundraising email went out.

“To meet this moment, Congress must do more than decry these wrongs,” Maloney tweeted. “We must act.”

Among the proposals she said she supports is a resolution explicitly condemning police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, which was introduced by “Squad” members Reps. Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar, along with Reps. Karen Bass and Barbara Lee.

Another was a bill introduced by fellow New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries that would forbid police from using chokeholds.

Floyd died in police custody on May 25 – and part of the incident recorded on video showed an officer kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes. Eric Garner died in New York City in 2014 after an NYPD officer restrained him with a chokehold in another incident caught on video.

HUNDREDS, INCLUDING AL SHARPTON, ERIC GARNER’S MOTHER, MOURN AT GEORGE FLOYD MEMORIAL IN MINNEAPOLIS

“As soon as I talked to the family and got the details and heard that among George’s last words was ‘I can’t breathe,’ with a knee on his neck, I immediately thought about Eric Garner,” the Rev. Al Sharpton said as he delivered a eulogy for Floyd in Minnesota Thursday.

Floyd’s death sparked a wave of protests against police violence around the country, which both candidates have said they support.

Maloney was first elected to Congress in 1992. Her chief accomplishments include the Zadroga Act and its subsequent reauthorizations, which secured compensation and health care for first responders and others suffering from 9/11-related illnesses. She also authored the Debbie Smith Act, which increases funding for law enforcement to process DNA rape kits, according to her campaign website.

The other primary challengers are Suraj Patel, a lawyer and educator whom Maloney defeated in a 2018 primary challenge, and Peter Harrison, a tenants’ rights advocate.

Also on Thursday in an unrelated tweet, President Trump blasted a push by people he called “Radical Left Democrats” amplifying calls to “defund the police.” Instead, he said he supports increasing money spent on law enforcement.

George Floyd unrest: Brooklyn Bridge blocked in new standoff between police, demonstrators

A massive crowd demanding justice over George Floyd’s death packed the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City Thursday afternoon, prompting police to shut down Manhattan-bound traffic temporarily.

Aerial video showed the size and scope of the demonstration as marchers, some carrying signs and banners, made their way over both the pedestrian space and the three-lane-wide span for vehicle traffic.

The march came after a memorial service at Cadman Plaza for George Floyd, who was killed in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

HUNDREDS, INCLUDING AL SHARPTON, ERIC GARNER’S MOM, MOURN AT GEORGE FLOYD MEMORIAL IN MINNEAPOLIS

Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, lives in Brooklyn and planned to attend the service, officials and faith leaders announced at a news conference with NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea Wednesday.

At the memorial, Terrence Floyd thanked the crowd for their support and urged protesters to remain peaceful, the New York Post reported.

“I’m proud of the protest, but I’m not proud of the destruction,” the paper quoted him as saying. “My brother wasn’t about that. The Floyds is a God-fearing family.”

After the service, marchers left Cadman Plaza, which is near the Brooklyn side of the iconic bridge, and began moving toward Manhattan. They were reportedly heading toward Foley Square.

One video shows the throng of people marching and chanting, “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now.” Another shows even more people waiting to get onto the crossing, holding signs.

Some photos showed a masked man holding an American flag raised upside-down on a handheld pole.

Elsewhere in the city, thousands of people gathered outside the mayor’s official resident at Gracie Mansion for another demonstration, as seen in videos posted to social media.

Images of that scene show protesters sitting, peacefully but in the middle of the street.

But Mayor Bill de Blasio wasn’t there. He attended the Floyd memorial in Brooklyn, where some in attendance met him with boos and called for him to resign.

Minnesota prosecutors on Wednesday upgraded the charges against Derek Chauvin, one of four Minneapolis police officers fired after Floyd’s death, to second-degree murder. The other three officers involved — Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng, and Tou Thao — were taken into custody Wednesday night and charged with two counts of aiding and abetting and second-degree murder.

Amazon failed to protect workers from coronavirus infection, new lawsuit claims

Amazon failed to protect its workers from coronavirus infections at a New York warehouse facility, a lawsuit filed by three employees claims.

According to a report in AFP, the complaint filed Wednesday in federal court said the “relentless pace of work at Amazon facilities” led to hazardous conditions and that company policies “discourage workers from leaving their workstations to wash their hands and from taking the time to wipe down their workstations.”

The legal action arrives after protests near Amazon’s Staten Island, N.Y.

facility, where one worker was fired. That employee claimed he was dismissed becuase he spoke out about the company’s response to COVID-19, but Amazon claimed he was disobeying the company’s quarantine protocols around the pandemic.

One of the three workers in the lawsuit said they were infected with coronavirus “from workers who were explicitly or implicitly encouraged to continue attending work and prevented from adequately washing their hands or sanitizing their workstations,” according to the lawsuit.

The three workers and their families are reportedluy seeking a range of changes, including a more transparent policy around taking leave and sick time, as well as better contact tracing for infected workers and back pay for quarantine leave.

The complaint alleges that the retail giant allowed workers to continue on the job even after being in contact with infected individuals.

Amazon, which was praised early on in the pandemic for hiring 175,000 new employees to deal with surging demand, says it has made many changes to improve health and safety at its facilities.

Fox News contacted Amazon for comment on the lawsuit and was given the following statement from Deborah Bass, a spokesperson for the tech giant:

“We are saddened by the tragic impact COVID-19 has had on communities across the globe, including on some Amazon team members and their family and friends. From early March to May 1, we offered our employees unlimited time away from work, and since May 1 we have offered leave for those most vulnerable or who need to care for children or family members.

“We also invested $4 billion from April to June on COVID-related initiatives,” the statement continued, “including over $800 million in the first half of this year on safety measures like temperature checks, masks, gloves, enhanced cleaning and sanitization, extended pay and benefits options, testing, and more. This includes two weeks paid leave for any COVID diagnosis or quarantine, and launching a $25 million fund to support our partners and contractors.”

As of Thursday afternoon, there were more than 1.8 million infections and at least 107,685 deaths in the U.S. from coronavirus.

A prominent U.S. attorney says New York state has placed the safety of United States citizens in jeopardy after the “Green Light Law” went into effect in December 2019.

The law gives undocumented immigrants New York state drivers licenses and permits and was designed to make the roads safer.

But the controversial legislation has recently garnered more attention since a new amendment, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, says state officials who share illegal immigrants’ driver data with federal immigration enforcement agencies could be charged with a class-E felony.

“I think it’s a terrible law and it basically legislates obstruction and legislates lawlessness,” J.P. Kennedy, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York, told Fox News. “It’s a bad law. It’s it makes no sense. It encourages sort of the divisiveness, even among law enforcement.

“Right now we’re seeing in our country, unfortunately, sort of the effects of lawlessness and… the efforts by some to break down the rule of law,” Kennedy said. “And I think we need at this time to be vigilant in our efforts to uphold the rule of law.”

Every police department in New York state received a memorandum in conjunction with the “Green Light Law” that stated they could no longer share Department of Motor Vehicle records with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“Generally, it’s not within my belly to [speak out]… the state does what the state does.” Kennedy said, “But here, where it directly impacts the operations and my ability to enforce the law, it’s time to speak up.”

Critics say the law is causing a gaping hole in the safety of the United States border. Many of the 17 counties that Kennedy represents border Canada, meaning local law enforcement agencies like the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department that would typically share this type of information have not been able to.

EXCLUSIVE: NY-CANADA BORDER SHERIFF AND ICE OFFICIAL RAISE RED FLAD ON CUOMO’S ‘GREEN LIGHT LAW’

“We have three international bridges in this county. So to work with our federal immigration partners is somewhat essential,” Acting Sheriff of Niagara County Michael Filicetti told Fox News. “Just buy the essence that we’re on the federal border and there are thousands of people and vehicles coming across those bridges every day. The working relationship we have with Border Patrol and Customs, it is essential to keeping our county safe.”

Filicetti says he had no choice but to abide by the law because if he didn’t his department accesses access to the sate DMV records would have been revoked.

“Quite frankly, I can’t have the deputies out on the road without that [access],” the 27-year veteran on the force said.

He also added that not having access to DMV records would “inhibit our ability to do our job.” His deputies protect almost 215,000 people in the most northwestern part of New York state.

Unlike larger cities, Filicetti’s deputies protect a 528-square-mile area in one-man cars. Without access to DMV records, they wouldn’t be able to positively identify someone with a license or license plate. Deputies also wouldn’t have information on things such as height and eye color and they also would lose access to any amber alerts that would be released in the state. All that information is essential for an officer to know when they pull over citizens at traffic stops.

On Jan. 12, 2020, just 28 days after they started giving driver’s licenses to undocumented people, ICE and CBP’s access to New York’s DMV records was revoked.

“The issue is obtaining the information that we need from the Department of Motor Vehicles because now they’ve blocked our access,” Thomas Decker, Field Office Director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in New York, told Fox News.

“Basically it directly impeded all our ability to obtain that information and it protects criminal aliens. So it kind of puts the safety of the citizens of New York and New York City at risk,” Decker said. “Without all that information, then what you’re left [with] is doing investigations [that] are getting information from a secondary way.

“So the alternative is going to a last known address that you have, talking to neighbors, talking to relatives… before you had a targeted enforcement action and you had precise information, now we don’t have that,” he added.

NY POLICE CHIEFS BACK TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S CHALLENGE TO CONTROVERSIAL ‘GREEN LIGHT LAW’

In order for ICE to obtain any recent DMV information on a suspect, they now have to gain a court order to access any of that information, but that is only the beginning of their problems.

“And then [the DMV is] going to notify the subject that we’re asking for that information. You know, what is the person going to do? They’re gonna take off,” Decker said.

Clerks at DMV offices now have to accept over 600 different types of documents from over 195 different countries that show the identity of undocumented immigrants.

“Document fraud is huge,” Decker said. “They easily just change their identity, get a different document, go to another DMV, [and] get a license under a different name. So I don’t see how that’s protecting the law-abiding citizens.”

The risk of people using fake documents to obtain a New York state license leads to additional problems in the Empire State–among them voter fraud.

The only thing you need to register to vote in the state is a driver’s license.

John Conklin, a spokesperson for the New York State Board of Elections, told the New York Post when the law was first passed in June 2019, that “it’s ­basically an honor system.” If found guilty of illegally voting, undocumented immigrants could face up to a $5,000 fine. According to The New York Post, the state DMV provides voter registration applications to license holders but has no role in vetting applications.

Fox News reached out to State Senator Luis Sepúlveda, D-Bronx, who sponsored the bill and was at the forefront of its passing in the senate, but his office did not return multiple email requests for comment.

In a February press release, Governor Cuomo stood by the law, saying, “I want to make sure people who are on the roads are licensed. I don’t want unlicensed people on our roads; it’s a public safety issue, and that’s what I’m concerned about. You can worry about your high-brow federal politics and policies, and your federal immigration laws. Let me keep people safe on our roads in the meantime, while you’re making a debacle of the nation.”

New York City police are searching Thursday for five suspects caught on video breaking into a store in Times Square and making off with six drones worth a combined $16,000.

The looting incident unfolded Monday night following protests sparked by the death of George Floyd.

Surveillance footage released by police shows two suspects using their bodies to ram through the store’s glass door.

Once inside, the group of suspects are then seen scrambling around and grabbing drones before escaping on foot.

The combined estimated value of the drones stolen from the store is $16,000, according to Fox5 NY. The NYPD is now offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to their arrests.

The store, on its Facebook page, had said in mid-March that it was “closed until further notice” due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

Ingraham blasts left-wing activists: Floyd’s ‘tragedy is their excuse’

Laura Ingraham ripped violent protesters and looters who have followed peaceful protests in the wake of George Floyd‘s death.

Ingraham said in her “Ingraham Angle” monologue that those committing violence and other criminal acts are co-opting Floyd’s death for their own gain.

“This is all political in the end for the Democrats — all of it. They want to stop President Trump and his supporters from having rallies or even a convention. Meanwhile, they applaud tens of thousands of people packed tightly into the streets and parks to support their own efforts to defeat him. Isn’t that a neat trick,” she said.

“What about these protests — peaceful protests? It is the hallmark of any free society. We applaud peaceful protests.”

“His tragedy is their excuse. The folks you see yelling at cops on TV — [they are] a lot of the wealthy suburban kids,” she noted. “I guess they are tired of sitting home playing video games or buying stuff on Amazon Prime. They are trying to check their privilege while checking their Apple watches,” she said.

“As we explained for months the left-wingers tried to force us to stay home. But the left, their protest had become essentially right now part of a religion that is essential that must be protected — But it’s also become part social club. And the same geniuses who love to mock baptists are out in the street with their own rituals,” she said.

She said, “Let’s be clear, everyone is infuriated. Anyone with a shred of decency about what happened to George Floyd –everyone wants justice to be done.”

“But those creepy rallies have nothing to do with George Floyd. At least for most of the people on the left,” Ingraham said.

She said that until the looting and anti-police sentiment and violence, Democratic leaders had slammed their own constituents for wanting to hold weddings, funerals, or trying to go to work.

“The left’s rules, have you noticed this? They never seems to apply to them. We have seen this with Governor Ralph Northam not wearing his mask or Governor Whitmer’s husband traveling to the family cabin up north or Governor Pritzker’s family escaping from Illinois to that awful dangerous state of Florida,” she said.

“If you still wanted to give these governors and mayors the benefit of the doubt on these COVID lockdowns, now you can disabuse yourself of that notion for good.”

She pointed specifically to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who in April said during a press conference that people gathering in “large numbers will spread a disease that will kill other members of the community.”

“If you saw anger and frustration, you are right. I spoke out of real distress that people’s lives were in danger before my eyes. And I will not tolerate it,” de Blasio said, after Hasidic Jewish mourners gathered in Brooklyn for a funeral that was broken up under his order.

“People’s lives were in danger at the funeral, okay. But when throngs of looters roam the street to smash and grab and push aside or worse, anyone in their way, suddenly there is zero concern for public health, COVID, and the police — by de Blasio — are told to use a light touch,” she said, noting the widespread criminal activity and bands of looters in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

She also pointed to the mainstream media’s outrage even amid the violence that President Trump would want to have Republicans gather in North Carolina for their convention — after the president exchanged remarks with Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper over the ability for the RNC to come to Charlotte.

“Have any of you seen the crowds in Raleigh and Charlotte North Carolina? If you want to open your doors to customers, they will stop you or send state inspectors and they will have measuring tapes and make sure your salad bar is in order, but if you want to ransack a restaurant, they will give you the green light,” Ingraham said.

“If you want to go to church, they will send cops out to harass you. But if you want to burn down the church, they will basically look the other way or excuse it.”
