Reports: NYPD Arrests Continue To Decline As Cops Fear For Their Safety


The NYPD has made news for a lot of activity lately, but recent reports indicate their most important decision may be what they aren’t doing.

For the second straight week, NYPD arrests are significantly lower — with many placing the blame on New York City politics surrounding recent attacks on police.

Officers arrested half as many people last week as they did the same week a year ago, The New York Times reports. Parking and traffic tickets have plummeted more than 90 percent.

The New York Post noticed the work slowdown when it occurred the first week, reporting that arrests were down 66 percent, traffic violations were down 92 percent and traffic violations were down 94 percent.

This drastic reduction in police work comes in the wake of the recent shooting deaths of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. A shooter, reportedly motivated by recent police killings, ambushed and killed the officers while they sat in their patrol car Dec. 20.

Sources told the New York Post the work slowdown is a result of police frustration with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and a fear for their safety.

NYPD officers have turned their backs on the mayor at both funerals for the killed officers, a move the mayor has publicly criticized.

Two NYPD officers in the Bronx were shot late Monday night after responding to a robbery, an attack on police that has fueled the growing fear and tension in the troubled city. The officers were hospitalized but in stable condition.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
