Stand With the NYPD

It’s being said that Occupy Wall Street is now occupying New York’s City Hall, and there are many voices concerned that the mayor of America’s largest city is hostile toward the NYPD. It is a concern —and many are speaking up about it.
Some of the most powerful quotes about the need to support New York’s finest:
  • “And de Blasio wonders why these men and women are turning their backs on him, why they despise him? You reappoint a judge that grants a thug bail after the man posts a violent threat against cops in the wake of two assassinations? No sane judge does that and no responsible mayor condones it.” — Bill O’Reilly
  • “I agree with turning their backs. The mayor turned his back on the police department a long time ago.” — John Mangan
  • “The people who encouraged these protests — you had peaceful protesters who were screaming ‘kill the cops’ — the so-called peaceful protesters. Who was encouraging these protesters? De Blasio, Sharpton, and other elected officials and community leaders. They encouraged this mentality. They encouraged this behavior. They encouraged it, and these two cops are dead because of people like them.” — Former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik
  • “The mayor needs to be humble. He needs to realize that his philosophical view of coming into the role of mayor of New York, [his] personal view is not the view of all eight million people,” — Edward Mullins, Sergeants Benevolent Association
  • “Currently, the state of relations between City Hall and the New York Police Department has devolved to the point of complete dysfunction, and criminals are well aware of this state of affairs. The fault for the creation of this toxic atmosphere is essentially found solely at the feet of Mayor de Blasio.” — Jazz Shaw
  • “For people like de Blasio, Holder, and Obama to suggest that systemic racism is characteristic of our police departments and to constantly undermine confidence in cops is disgraceful, particularly given the tremendous achievements by police officers in protecting innocent people from harm and maintaining order in our streets.” — Peter Wehner
  • “Long before Officers Liu and Ramos were gunned down on that Brooklyn street corner, de Blasio had run his campaign for mayor based on calumny: that the NYPD is a racist police force.” — William McGurn
  • “If Mayor de Blasio wants to get respect from the NYPD then he must give them respect. Given his blanket denunciation of his own police force following the decision of a Staten Island grand jury last month not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner, his encouragement of anti-police protests and his failure to condemn protesters for calling for dead cops, de Blasio has only himself to blame for the reception he has received from the NYPD in recent weeks.” — Aaron Goldstein
  • “If you want to say that Mayor de Blasio contributed to an atmosphere of hate for the police, absolutely he did.” — Rudy Giuliani
  • “Justice in America is key.” — Jonah Engler
  • “Since taking office, de Blasio has struggled to balance supporting the NYPD with acknowledging the distrust many have when it comes to racial profiling, exemplified by the controversial "Stop and Frisk" policy.” — Allen McDuffee
  • “Apparently, that’s what Mayor de Blasio believes, that there is injustice among his own police officers. He even told his own son, a mixed-race teenager, to be careful around the NYPD. That point of view from the left, that the police are instruments of oppression rather than a protective force, is causing outrage on the part of the cops.” — Bill O’Reilly
  • “We might be reaching a tipping point with the mindset of officers, who are beginning to wonder if the risks they take to keep communities safe are even worth it anymore. We’re seeing a natural recoil from . . . officers who don’t feel like certain people who need to have their backs have their backs.” — Sheriff David Clarke
  • “De Blasio, Sharpton, and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands. They have blood on their hands.” — Former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik
  • “ I’m supportive of police officers who have on several occasions now turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio. Their contempt for him is well-deserved.” — Peter Wehner
  • “Two fine police officers are dead — and the mayor wonders where people ever got the idea he doesn’t like cops.” — William McGurn
  • “He's guilty of creating an atmosphere of police hatred in certain communities. And it is a lie. It is untrue. It's like Soviet propaganda. The police are not racist. There is not a systemic problem with police racism.” — Rudy Giuliani
  • “Police are law and order.” — Dr. Gil Lederman
  • “The one thing the police cannot protect us from is a politician like Bill de Blasio.” — Bill O’Reilly
  • “Bill de Blasio has to admit he made mistakes, or this does not end anytime soon, even if the funerals end, for now. The mayor does not do this with extra overtime that starts to look like bribes, or eulogies, or using Bratton for cover, or even a new contract.” — Mike Lupica
  • “I would say the right thing for the mayor is to step down right now. He's making a total mess out of the situation.” — John Gallagher
  • “The slowdown, as well as officers' turning their backs on de Blasio during the funerals of the murdered officers, have led some in the city to conclude that Mayor de Blasio needs to treat the police with more respect if he wants to keep his city safe.” — Dara Lind
Simply, support heroic police officers.
