Of course the NYPD are a trigger happy bunch and will shoot without provocation at the drop of a hair, but I don’t think she will win in a court of law. Her not properly restraining her dog (a pit bull) before she opened the door will probably sink her case dead in the water.
A grieving dog owner in the Bronx is now planning to sue the NYPD after an officer shot and killed her beloved dog. The deadly encounter was caught on camera in the Belmont section. The dog’s owner opened the door after hearing police in the hall. When the pit bull walked towards an officer, wagging its tail, the officer shot it in the head at point blank range. The owner, Yvonne Rosado, is suing the department and the city. The NYPD says it’s investigating the incident.

“New York City reached a settlement with the family of Eric Garner on Monday, agreeing to pay $5.9 million to resolve a wrongful death claim over his killing by the police on Staten Island last July, a lawyer for the family said.
The agreement, reached just a few days before the deadline to file suit, headed off one potentially fractious legal battle over Mr. Garner’s death even as a federal inquiry into the killing and several others at the state and local level remain open and could provide a further accounting of how he died.
Still, the settlement was a pivotal moment in a case that has engulfed the city and the Police Department since the afternoon of July 17, 2014, when two officers approached Mr. Garner as he stood unarmed on a sidewalk and accused him of selling untaxed cigarettes.” *

An NYPD sergeant was shot in the head and chest and critically wounded in Queens on Saturday.
The anti-crime officer worked out of the 105th Precinct in Queens Village and was on duty when he was hit at around 6:15 p.m. It was not clear whether he was in uniform – anti-crime officers often do plainclothes patrols.
A suspect was holed up in a nearby building at 212th Street and 104th Avenue. Police sent hostage negotiaters to try to talk him out – but it was not clear if he actually was holding people against their will.
The cop was rushed to Jamaica Hospital in a radio car.
The officer was the fifth New York City cop shot in the last five months.
On Wednesday April 29, while exercising my “rights” as press, my coverage of the NYC Freddie Gray Rally resulted in me being accosted/kidnapped/illegally detained by the para military occupying force that you refer to as the NYPD. I was doing nothing more than documenting their Gestapo tactics, in this case which were telling peaceful protesters that they no longer had the right to exercise their right to free assembly and freedom of speech. The parallels are staggering, check this out, as a result of the work that the gunman from Baltimore put in December resulting in the death of two cops in Brooklyn, there has been a reconstruction of the statues/ordinances/codes that pertain to how people in this city are “allowed” to protest.
Protest, in it’s essence should not be about consent, first and foremost. What is the point of making your words heard and your action felt, if you are being told what the acceptable decibel is that your pitch can be heard at, or what is the acceptable motion that the herd can be herded in? While the majority of people in this city sip tea and point fingers, De Blasio‘s powers have been usurped by a villainous treasonous para military organization who are doing the bidding of their task masters who have declared war on your basic liberties, and this diatribe is for those who still think that they are “citizens” of a democratic society.
When basic liberties are usurped and non violent civil disobedience is met with the force reserved for full scale escalations, then NO ONE is safe. Safety is an illusion when your fellow man is denied the basic rights of existence, and one of the paramount tenets of existence is your ability to be heard, on your own terms.
For those of us who know that NYC is a municipality, a corporation, deriving from municipium, a Latin word that “derives from the Latin social contract “municipium”, meaning duty holders, referring to the Latin communities that supplied Rome with troops in exchange for their own incorporation into the Roman state (granting Roman citizenship to the inhabitants) SOURCE: Wikipedia, we KNOW that none of these codes, ordinances, or statutes are lawfully binding and this in fact is not a Democratic society or even Government in the sense of how we collectively identify the word.
Please refer to last Friday’s KTLRADIO show we did called “The People vs Ferguson, Inc.” where we laid out in detail how these corporations are using the “people” for personal profit while usurping folks basic inalienable rights. There is no other glaring exposure of this practice at our disposal, than the Fed’s report on Ferguson. Continue reading
If there was ever a time that the People in communities across the U.S. needed to come together, it’s now. While images and videos of the Baltimore protesters’ exemplary model of unity continue to pour in by the hour, it is unfortunate that that spirit of solidarity has not spread throughout the rest of the country and penetrated the hearts of others. I truly wonder what the motive could have possibly been to lead these men to opening fire on a group of 300 people that were just leaving a funeral service. Many of whom were with their loved ones and simply wanted to pay respects to someone who had passed. Little did some of them know, they would have to start making plans to attend two more. It’s even more saddening to hear that one of the men that died in this senseless act of violence was killed in front of his son. For what? When will this vicious cycle end? Let this be a reminder that although the solidarity shown in places like Ferguson and Baltimore is a step in the right direction, it is something that must not be fleeting. We have to be as unrelenting in our struggle for unity amongst the People as the opposing forces are in their efforts to keep us divided.
I offer my condolences to all those affected by this tragedy.
Six people were shot — two fatally — Monday night during a drive-by shooting outside a Brooklyn church where funeral services were being held, police sources and witnesses said.
More than 300 people were leaving the service at Emmanuel Church of God on Flatbush Ave. near Foster Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. when a gunman fired up to 15 shots into the crowd from a silver SUV.
“It sounded like a war … boom, boom, boom,” said witness Carlo Stamand, 60, who owns the nearby Cafe Creole restaurant. “I ran. I went inside my business. After that, the police came.
Witness Angela Diggs, 50, was worshiping at another church nearby when the congregants’ prayers were drowned out by gunfire.
“We didn’t come out,” she said. “We just continued praying for whatever was happening out there. Praying that nobody died.”
Diggs’ prayers weren’t answered.

A great deal of skepticism exists regarding the accepted governmental accounts of what transpired on September 11, 2001. Many construction experts, architects and engineers have even said the World Trade Center Towers were destroyed in a controlled demolition.
There are also growing numbers who reject major portions of the “19 hijackers” hypothesis going even further calling the entire event a False Flag Operation.
Must watch. Fitting that we have former mayor of NYC, loud mouth Rudy Giuliani, all over the news spouting his racist rhetoric about President Obama and the black community in general, who has consistently used the tragedy of 9/11 to remain relevant. I am willing to bet he would call the 9/11 Truthers, a bunch of unpatriotic idiots who also don’t love America. The recent death threats he has supposedly received should be a wake up call that everybody with a brain hates Rudy.
Not looking good for Knick fans lol
This is a crying onions story but needs to be told.
Leo Grand, a homeless man, describes where he is spending the night as New York City braces for what’s being called a historic blizzard.
Social Media has invaded every segment of society and the NYPD seems to have a serious problem with their officers posting selfies with their uniforms on:
via Daily Mail
In a statement in response to the probe, John J. McCarthy, NYPD Deputy Commissioner, said: ‘Members of the Police Department are prohibited from posting photographs of themselves in uniform without the prior authorization.
‘This does not include photographs taken during official department ceremonies. This directive is in compliance with the New York City Social Media Policy and is in part intended to protect officers from divulging identifying information on social media sites that may endanger officer safety.
Breach of these guidelines can result in harsh disciplinary action including termination. However sources told the Daily News that the female officers involved could lose 10 days vacation.
A group of female NYPD officers are facing disciplinary action after photos of them in uniform were posted on sexy Instagram account.
The policewomen posted photos of themselves posing away from work alongside images of them wearing their badges – allegedly violating the department’s social media policy.
Before my NYC peeps light up some sour in celebration, please take serious note that if you get caught smoking you will still get arrested. NY Mag puts everything in perspective below:
While Bratton said that the new policy applies to weed that is in open view (a big shift), it does not apply to weed that is being burned. People caught smoking weed will continue to be arrested. (It’s also still probably not a great idea to wave your bag around in public, regardless of its size.) Pot-possessors with outstanding warrants will be taken into custody, as will people who can’t show ID. “An officer ultimately has to make the judgment on the scene,” said de Blasio, suggesting that people whom the cops deem suspicious or uncooperative might also be subject to arrest.
Not sure how much I believe this story due to the fact that the original photos taken posted by his friends were mysteriously deleted off the net. Not to say this can’t happen, because whether we like it or not, if you eat at a restaurant more than likely they have rodents but we would hope a damn mouse doesn’t actually make itself a part of the menu.
A patron of a New York City Chop’t restaurant—a “Creative Salad Company”—happened upon a disgusting dead rodent when chomping into his wrap on Tuesday. The wrap had been made by the Chop’t location in the Financial District of Manhattan.

Real spit right here.
The evidence mounting against these guys just gets worse and worse. Wonder if this footage was held up from being released because the owners were negotiating with different media outlets to the highest bidder?
Woody is his name.
I thought senators have more pressing issues to deal with.
These guys are at best going to get a slap on the wrist and will be getting a bunch of high-fives from the other officers. Would be surprised if any real severe punishment came down. We will hear in a few days.

The New York Police Department has had to review a video in which two of their officers were filmed bumping and grinding provocatively with dancers at the West Indian Day Parade.
Love his energy today, but is this really gonna change anything tomorrow.
We here in NYC knew this was gonna happen. Trust me too many people aren’t up in arms over this at all. He will win in a landslide. Money, Power, Respect in its all its glory.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s bid to run for a third term got the all-clear Thursday when the City Council voted to allow term limits to be extended from 8 to 12 years.
Emotional and often outspoken council members voted 29-22 in favor of the extension that now allows officeholders three consecutive four-year terms. About two-thirds of the City Council is currently in their second term.
In a statement released by Bloomberg shortly after the decision was announced, he said he was pleased with the council’s vote.
“Today, the majority of the City Council decided to give the people of New York a fuller choice in the November, 2009 election. I believe that was the right choice, and I want to thank Speaker Quinn for her leadership.
“Those of us who work on both sides of City Hall must now move forward with the important decisions that face us, particularly finding ways to soften the fallout from the economic downturn and balancing our budget as revenues decline. We have a lot of work to do together to get New York through these tough times.”
