Although he didn’t mention them by name, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill took a veiled shot at the “Black Lives Matter” movement, who often march and “demonstrate” whenever a black citizen is killed by a cop…but NEVER do the same when a black cop is killed by regular citizens.
O’Neill received a standing ovation at the funeral of slain NYPD officer Myosotis Familia when he simply asked one question: “Where are the demonstrations for this single-mom?”
“Let me tell you something, regular people sign-up to be cops. They sign-up for this job of protecting strangers knowing there are inherent risks. But not one of us ever agreed to be murdered in an act of indefensible hate. Not one of us signed-up to never return to our family or loved ones,” said O’Neill.
Watch the powerful moment below:
“So where are the demonstrations for this single-mom who cared for her elderly mother and her own three children?” he added.
“There is anger and sorrow. But why is there no outrage? Because Miosotis was wearing a uniform? Because it was her job? I simply do not accept that. Miosotis was targeted, ambushed, and assassinated. She wasn’t given a chance to defend herself,” said the Commissioner.
What a powerful rebuke to the BLM, who will sadly not change a damn thing about the way they view Cops & our Law Enforcement.
