Deja Vu   4 comments

mottoDÉJÀ VU           

As I watch the news coverage of the two cops murdered in the 79 yesterday it brings back painful memories. It feels like the City is returning to seventies. It was a time when we had mayors and police commissioners who hated cops and showed them no respect. I remember going to funerals almost every month. The moral of us the cops on street was nonexistent. It was felt that the only support we had was each other. It was us against the world. Crime was rampant and the streets were filthy.

Slowly things changed as better mayors and commissioners came in. The city went from a cesspool of crime and violence to one of the safest big cities in the world. Now a new mayor intent on bringing back those days is in office. He learned how to govern at the feet of David Dinkens possibly the worst mayor in the history of New York City until now. Mr. Mayor there are now two less cops for your son to be afraid of. You have blood on your hands and it won’t wash off.

If my son had been one of those killed yesterday they would have had to pull me off DeBlasio. I watched his hypocritical speech last night and it also reminded me of the seventies. The politicians and police brass have no respect for living street cops but they love dead ones. They get to stand before the cameras and cry their crocodile tears. They can pretend they care and hope for a boost in their poll numbers.

  1. KEVIN:

    BRAVO – Excellent posting.

    Here’s wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas.

    Every time there is a LOD death, I think of Joe Taylor.

    Will

    • Hi Will,
      Thank you. Joe came to mind immediately when I heard. It really looks like the city has sunk back to the 70’s. Enjoy the Holidays. I’ll see you in September.

  2. Kevin: I was thinking similar thoughts. I wanted to puke when I saw deblasio simulating wiping tears from his eyes.
