    Being a cop is risking your life every minute. That said, that's a cops career choice. They went in knowing that. Honestly it isn't the mayors fault but I still voted yes because I don't like the guy. That said, cops get shot all the time with or without protests or national controversy.

    The police, and 100 years of terror are responsible for the killing of 2 pigs.

    Besides the killing of so many people in the last few years that they have been COVERING UP.


    WSJ story.
    "WASHINGTON—When 24-year-old Albert Jermaine Payton wielded a knife in front of the police in this city’s southeast corner, officers opened fire and killed him.

    Yet according to national statistics intended to track police killings, Mr. Payton’s death in August 2012 never happened. It is one of hundreds of homicides by law-enforcement agencies between 2007 and 2012 that aren’t included in records kept by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    A Wall Street Journal analysis of the latest data from 105 of the country’s largest police agencies found more than 550 police killings during those years were missing from the national tally or, in a few dozen cases, not attributed to the agency involved. The result: It is nearly impossible to determine how many people are killed by the police each year.

    Cops are not "pigs." Liberals are not responsible for this shooting. Neither is the mayor. So much lunacy going around. :shakes head disgustedly:

    The only person responsible for the tragic deaths of those officers was the man that killed them, Ismaaiyl Brinsley. It is not the fault of the protesters, it is not the fault of the media, it is not the fault of the mayor. Ismaaiyl Brinsley made a decision to attack those police officers. It is sad, but nobody has blood on there hands except for him. There are policemen in this world who abuse their power, hence the protests. But even the most devout of protesters would not advocate for the killing of police officers who have done nothing but serve their city. Even with all the negative attention toward our officers, it was never about getting back at police officers. It was about bringing those who abuse their power to justice. Mayor de Blasio does not own fault in this either. The only peorson who deserves the blame is that bas**** in a body bag who decided to target innocent public servants.

    No, though I don't have a problem pointing a finger at Sharpston.

    Zero tolerance and overwhelming force are different. I assume you understand the difference.

    Your perception of de Blasio's actions "anti-police" and your belief that his actions "made a violent incident more likely" isn't salient to me. Such a perception seems rooted in misplaced anger and frustration.

To argue that such measured behavior inspired someone to kill two people is absurd. It is a leap of logic so wide that it could only be made by those determined to arrive at that conclusion. So no, the Mayor is not responsible.

    I also want to note that my hypothesis is that most of the people who are trying to blame de Blasio and others for this murder are people who were already opposed to the anti-police-brutality demonstrations taking place nationwide. I suspect that they are using these deaths to promote a position they already held and shame/scare people into stopping the protests and other forms of criticism. If I am correct, then their behavior is even more absurd and shameful than it is on the surface.
    We can end the thread right here! Bingo!

    The prez, as you call him has hundreds of people protecting him. A NYPD officer has only himself and a partner.

    What an embarrassingly classless post.
