    Brooklyn is being over run with the same. and yes, I made a distinction between "outer bouroughs" and the "burbs".

    Maybe White people should go marching through Black communities chanting, "What do we want? Dead Blacks! When do we want them? Now!" and "White Lives Matter".

    Perhaps this puts the ignorance of these protesters into some perspective.
    It was individuals who did those things. I could post a litany of crimes committed by people of all different ethnicities and political affiliations and it would prove nothing about the typical members of those groups. The fact is, a pro-police protest was held in a major American city and nothing bad happened as a result.

    Nothing you've posted refutes anything I've said. There's plenty of "ignorance" to go around, if you ask me.

    And it was individual cops as well. But that didn't prevent the more stupid among us to chant that they wanted dead cops.

    Yes, but it is the protesters who are lumping all cops together, wanting them killed, and holding up signs saying only that "Black Lives Matter". It is these people you should complain to. And I doubt any crimes would result from a pro-police rally.

    You're not even responding to what I said.

    I think De Blasio, Al Sharpton and Obama should handle the security at Time's Square New Years celebration, and give the NYPD a break.

    NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.

    Do you support the NYPD work stoppage?
    So long as they enforce violent crime laws, they should go for it. If we can reduce tickets by 66%, we can probably significantly reduce the size of police forces. Fewer laws and budgets for all!

    The vast majority of protesters don't want to see cops killed and have openly said so. I have a problem with police officer who abuse their authority and people who call for the execution of cops. Those are not incompatible stances.

    Are you old enough to remember when NYC's image to the rest of the country was that of a crime spree wasteland? Travelers avoided the place and those who couldn't were advised that they would probably be mugged at least once in their stay.

    How do you think they came back from that? By enforcing ALL their laws. Again, know how they find a ton of violent felons with active warrants? Traffic stop and stop for minor violations. Funny thing about most criminals, their criminal behavior isn't limited to felonies.

    No they're not, or at least they needn't be. As with most things, it's all in how you get there.

    I am not sure why any liberals would support this. For example, while FDR was supportive of public sector unions, he did not believe that public employees should ever strike and this is certainly a form of that.

    "Under no circumstances shall this Federation engage in or support strikes against the United States Government.” - FDR

    Brooklyn and Queens are 58% of the population of New York City, Manhattan has about 19%.
