Barr rips ‘prancing punks’ who doused cops with water
2019-08-13
[NYPOST] Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday denounced the "prancing punks" who doused NYPD cops with water during a speech in which he condemned those who disrespect cops.

"We were all nauseated by the spectacle of prancing punks pelting New York coppers with water and plastic buckets. Unfortunately, these were not isolated events. From 2014 through 2017, there has been a 20 percent increase in assaults against police, up to about 60,000 per year," Barr said at the National Fraternal Order of Police’s conference in New Orleans.

Several people have been busted in the Big Apple this summer for dousing cops with water.

Barr then praised coppers for the job they do.

"To my mind, there is no more noble profession than serving as a police officer. You put your own life and well-being on the line to protect your communities," the nation’s top law enforcement official said.

"Your families spend anxious nights, so we can sleep in peace. You never know what your day may bring ‐ what uncertainty, danger, or threat you might face. But you still get up, put on your uniform and badge, kiss your loved ones, and head out to face whatever risks might come your way."

Police officers, he added, were "fighting an unrelenting, never-ending fight against criminal predators in our society. While there are battles won and lost each day, there is never a final resolution ‐ a final victory is never in sight."

#4  Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday denounced the "prancing punks" who doused NYPD cops with water during a speech in which he condemned those who disrespect cops.

Even the cops who cover for the left and guard tranny story hour at the public library, and who herd rightist dissenters into left wing mobs?


Like the cops in Berkeley, and San Jose and Portland and the Virginia State Police?

Don't you have any actual work to do, AG Barr?

#3  Yes, the mayor, the press and the leftist public in NYC (any many other places too) will call the police a "threat to public safety" right up to the moment they walk out. Then the strike will be called a "threat to public safety..."

#2  Yes. Police should go on strike and call for DeBlasio's resignation.

#1  Police should go on strike. There are consequences for this Mayor de Baliso sanctioned behavior of the public toward the very people that protect them.
