New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton Needs to Resign



On 6-25-2015 Bill Bratton wrote a peeved letter to the New York Post justifying his cops overtime and mentioning the difficult environments that they work in.

Bratton says, “Shame on The Post for its insults to these cops and the incessant fearmongering on crime.”


But, Bratton, the cops and the reporters are not the problem.  And fearmongering is not fearmongering when fear is justified based on you and De Blasio ending Stop and Frisk out of fear of being considered racist.


More people are being shot, killed, raped and Bratton calls it “fearmongering.”  Based on his crime results if we didn’t have more fear we would be stupid.


Stupid like Bratton’s good friend mayor, De Blasio, who says that cops are more of a threat to his caricature son, Dante, than the thugs.


Both De Blasio and Bratton are failing miserably on crime.  They are more interested in wage inequality then in crime.


Civilization depends on cops.  Bratton and De Blasio don’t defend them. The city has become uncivilized.  There is an air of destructuralized chaos.


Put these fakers in tights; De Blasio and Bratton are retreads of Robin Hood.  And Sherwood Forest is becoming more dangerous while they recite socialistic mantras and pretend that they are big time humanitarians.  Except the humans are getting shot.


How could our leaders be so arrogant and so wrong?


If Bratton had any integrity he would resign rather than work with De Blasio.  Let’s hope that Bratton gets some chutzpah and that his next letter to the New York Post is his resignation.
