A police officer gets brutally executed in the Bronx as she sits in her squad car. A train carrying 150 people derails in Manhattan’s Penn Station. And those crazy costumed characters in Times Square are still running wild.
But where’s the city’s mayor? Not there. He flew to Hamburg, Germany, to “join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany,” the New York Post reports.
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.
Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”
De Blasio will be the keynote speaker, organizers of the demonstration — Hamburg Shows Attitude — tweeted.
The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.

This POS should never hold elected office ever again! I mean, not even city dog catcher! He should be asking if you want fries with your food order. There isn’t even a curse word or insult strong enough to cover this right now. Someone needs to invent one. Knock yourselves out.
According to this, business owners who lost their businesses and/or were looted in the riots after the death of Freddie Gray are suing Baltimore for failing to protect them.
“The City failed them when they adopted a policy of restraint and issued stand-down orders, caring more about the public perception that they feared would result with increased police presence than preventing what were clearly preventable riots,” the lawyer for the businesses suing the city said.
If you recall, during the riots, the police were told to stand down and we were all told we had to let people protest as they see fit because they were angry.
In the meantime, businesses in Baltimore bore the brunt of it. Businesses that were not involved in the death of Freddie Gray, could not have helped him, and were not voicing opinions on the occurrence.
These business owners had to sit back and watched their businesses were busted up, looted, burned to the ground, etc. as the cops stood by doing nothing to stop the riots or defend the businesses. These were real people that paid the price for something they were not involved in, because the USA’s snowflakes have decided that the best way to protest is to destroy their own towns, communities, and neighbors, and then cry about their situations later.
Personally, I wish these business owners the best and I hope they win.
But at least two police officers on scene stood up to the terrorists. One officer who was seriously injured, stabbed in multiple places, reportedly fought them until he was forced to the ground.
The patrons of the bar were also very brave, throwing things at the attackers until police with guns arrived.
They arrived quickly and took out the terrorists very quickly, but it still reportedly took eight minutes.

Seated at a table in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room, Trump approved a measure giving priority for federal grants to those federal and state law enforcement agencies that hire and train veterans.
The American Law Enforcement Heroes Act and the Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Improvement Act is the product of a bipartisan effort by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.
The second measure – the Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Improvement Act – takes steps to reduce the backlog of families awaiting approval of survivor benefits of public safety officers killed in the line of duty.

The report, titled, “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across The United States 2016,” compared permit holders to the general population and then to police officers in Florida and Texas, two states which largely mirror the rest of the country.
The data revealed that from 2005 to 2007, “there were 103 crimes per 100,000 police officers,” while the U.S. population’s crime rate is 37 times that number.
Permit holders are convicted of felonies and misdemeanors at less than a sixth of the rate of police officers, according to the study. Officers also commit firearm violations, 16.5 per 100,000, seven times more frequently than permit holders, at only 2.4 per 100,000 in Texas and Florida.
The report also shows that crime declined in states that do not require permits to carry. It reads, “Indeed, the murder rate was 31 percent lower in the states not requiring permits. The violent crime rate was 28 percent lower.” Currently, several groups, such as Everytown for Gun Safety and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, are targeting concealed-carry laws as a part of broader gun control measures.

So, wait… you mean, we aren’t the boogie men that the left has tried to paint us as?!
The press release obtained by Breitbart Texas from the ACLU states:
“The ACLU’s goal is to protect all Texans and all people traveling through Texas — regardless of their immigration status — from illegal harassment by law enforcement,” said Lorella Praeli, ACLU director of immigration policy and campaigns. “Texas is a state with deep Mexican roots and home to immigrants from all walks of life. Many of us fit the racial profile that the police in Texas will use to enforce Trump’s draconian deportation force.”
“We plan to fight this racist and wrongheaded law in the courts and in the streets. Until we defeat it, everyone traveling in or to Texas needs to be aware of what’s in store for them,” said Terri Burke, executive director of the ACLU of Texas. “The Lone Star State will become a ‘show me your papers’ state, where every interaction with law enforcement can become a citizenship interrogation and potentially an illegal arrest.”

Warning, travelers headed to Texas! You might be forced to follow actual laws! You may be expected to show proof that you didn’t enter the United States illegally! You may be subjected to the realization that Texas values law followers over law breakers! You me be subjected to realizing that no one gives a crap about your feelings!
In a post obtained by The Claremont Independent, a Facebook group of about 250 people called “ShutDown Anti-BlackFascists” wrote the following:

For white accomplices: Please keep in mind that your role at this protest, aside from acting in solidarity with POC students at the 5Cs, particularly Black students, is to serve as a buffer between students of color and the police. That means, if the police come, it is imperative that you stay at the protest with fellow accomplices and engage with cops should it come to that.
Protest leaders at the event reportedly yelled, “White students to the front!”
Peak irony here from the unwitting “anti-racism” activists.

Basically, the white folk are allowed, but only as human shields.
And the fact that they call them “accomplices” says a lot, too.
