Violence begins to occur on NYPD officers as protests continue

30,000 people gathered on Saturday in a protest march called Millions March NYC motivated by the grand jury decision of no indictment on the NYPD officer who killed

Eric Garner

in the summer and the no indictment to another officer in Ferguson.

While some parts of the protest were peaceful, not all were, as violence began to ensue around 8 p.m. EST at the Brooklyn Bridge. During the march, violent acts on two lieutenants erupted as they tried to stop a protester from throwing a garbage can at another cop. As the lieutenants attempted to stop the protester, other demonstrators intervened and began attacking the officers. The protesters began a knock out, drag-out brawl that sent both Lieutenants to the hospital with one having a broken nose. Their conditions were not life threatening. The two lieutenants work in the department of Legal Bureau who were detailed to maintain and ensure the peace for the protest to occur.

The agitator, Eric Linsker, a CUNY adjunct professor at Baruch College fled the scene, but left behind a bag containing his work ID, three hammers and a black ski mask. He was caught Sunday afternoon and will be facing 13 charges of assaulting police officers, robbery, reckless endangerment, rioting and possession of marijuana.

This isn’t the first time Linsker has started a brawl with NYPD officers during a protest. The 29-year-old cop-hating poet and occupy leader in 2011 was arrested for punching a cop in the eye during the Occupy Wall Street protest. This isn’t the first attack on NYPD cops as some protesters don’t want to see justice and just revenge on the lives of who serve and protect. As Mainstream media have turned a blind eye of showing the chanting malicious anti-cop phase, social media has surfaced instead, showing video of chants such as this disgusting phrase , “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” during Saturday’s protest.

On December 11, an officer took a punch in the face on West 125th Street in Harlem by a man who later was caught. A sergeant attempting to hold back a crowd during a December 4 protest at the Staten Island Ferry terminal in lower Manhattan was struck by a 22-year-old man. Police later found out the same attacker punched another officer that night in Chelsea. However, there has been no reports or coverage of this incident from either the liberal media nor the liberal elected officials in New York City.

Chief of Department James P. O’Neill at a news conference late Saturday night after the attacks stated, “Our officers have shown extraordinary restraint and patience in the face of verbal abuse and much more, after tonight’s event, after the cops being assaulted, this is where we have to draw the line.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio said the attack was “an incident … in which a small group of protesters allegedly assaulted some members of the NYPD.” Another slap in the face of NYPD as the mayor tweets about non-violence and stating it’s a peaceful protest. Stating the incident as “alleged” the mayor will not denounce these attacks at the live press conference aftermath of the brutal attack on the NYPD officers as he continues to play both sides and contributing to the injuries of NYPD officers.

This protest has become the Ebola virus of race. It has become a media circus where the continuous coverage exceeds the real importance of what is going on with real issues such as CRomnibus and the world being
