    Police were responding to a dispute between the man and a woman, the Post reports “The cops yelled ‘Drop it!’” said rattled eyewitness Larry Bethune, 44, of Hollis, Queens, recalling the moment the psycho pulled a small hatchet from his jacket. “And he lunged at one of them,” the witness remembered. “He raised his arm up high and brought it straight down on the cop’s head. “The cop went down to the ground, face first. It was horrible. I’ve never seen anything like that on Jamaica Avenue,” he added. “The cop’s just lying there with blood pouring down his face....

    A rookie police officer was struck in the head by a man wielding a hatchet in the New York City borough of Queens Thursday, in an assault that has police checking for any ties to terror organizations or whether the attack could have been inspired by Wednesday’s lone-wolf attack in Canada. Police opened fire, killing the suspect and wounding a woman who was nearby, according to officials. The officer survived the attack. A second police officer was struck with the hatchet in the arm and is also being treated. The name of the suspect was not immediately released. The 2...

    Further proof of the faked hate scam advanced by Islamic supremacist groups and terror-tied orgs like Hamas-CAIR. Charges of “islamophobia” on the heels of Islamic terrorist attacks are a secondary jihad. Sharia enforcement — “no criticism of Islam” in concert with the sharia’s war on the truth.

    The controversial death of a New York City man who was placed in a chokehold by police was formally ruled a homicide Friday, a move that will almost certainly place the officers in front of a grand jury and heighten tensions between residents and the police department, city officials and policing experts said. Eric Garner, 43, died after being placed in a chokehold that caused him to suffer neck and chest compressions during his arrest two weeks ago in the Tompkinsville section of Staten Island, according to findings released by the New York City medical examiner’s office. Garner’s weight, chronic...

He did say that more trust was needed between police and residents. “If you talk about the last decade or so in...

    An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her apartment. NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since 1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm around 27-year-old Rosan Miller's neck in the Saturday incident. Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest unfold. The NYPD told MailOnline that it is currently investigating the incident.

    In a stunning reversal, infamous Cannibal Cop Gilberto Valle will likely have his conviction for a bizarre kidnapping conspiracy scheme overturned on Tuesday after a judge decided to revoke the guilty verdict in the flesh-eating fetish plot, a source said. The disgraced NYPD veteran, who was convicted of hatching a “heinous” plan to cook, kill, and eat several women — including his own wife — was facing life in prison for the crime. But Valle will likely have the major charge of conspiracy overturned and the sentence vacated with only a misdemeanor charge of using police computers to track down...

    Bill Bratton has destroyed his reputation in a short amount of time by becoming a mouthpiece for Bill de Blasio. Taking the job was a poor idea since crime rates had dropped so low that they were bound to rebound, especially under a pro-criminal mayor like De Blasio. All that Bratton had done is set himself up to take the blame and join the ranks of failed NYPD commissioners like Lee Brown who did what a liberal mayor wanted instead of fighting crime. So now it’s time to pander to Islam.

In his ruling Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge William J.

The tactic was detailed in a series of stories by The Associated Press and became the subject of two federal lawsuits. In a series of articles that began in August 2011, the AP...

Several radical Islamist front groups — including the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Muslim Students Association — accused the NYPD of violating their civil rights through a post-9/11 program that included infiltrating and monitoring mosques to gather intelligence on jihadists and disrupt terror plots. In 2011 they sued the police department to kill the program and collect damages. On Friday, a federal judge killed their lawsuit instead....

    De Blasio gets policing advice — from ex-cons Forget Ray Kelly, Bill de Blasio is getting his policing advice from the real experts — hardened criminals. A group of 50 ex-cons, junkies and chronic vagrants gathered at a Manhattan “Think Tank” Thursday to describe what they thought the NYPD should be doing to make their lives easier. The felonious forum outlined a clear “get-soft-on-crime” vision. “I like the idea of ending stop and frisk. That was the first thing that was totally there for me,” opined Mikell Green-Grand, a 49-year-old former jailbird who has convictions for grand larceny and identity...

    This is the horrific moment an off-duty New York policeman was beaten to within an inch of his life during a 5.30am brawl. Sergeant Mohammed Deen was attacked outside a restaurant in Ozone Park, Queens, while his wife watched helplessly from their parked car. The 40-year-old was knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked and punched - before being left unconscious on the street. Sgt Deen - who has worked for the NYPD for 18 years - suffered serious injuries in the brutal assault, which was captured on a passerby's mobile phone and uploaded to Facebook. He was taken to...

    It begins! According to the NYPD, a 16-year-old girl got ornery during the breakup of a Staten Island house party over the weekend, telling the officers that the mayor-elect would condone her choice of revelry. "This is the projects. Everybody smokes weed! De Blasio's gonna legalize it," she said, allegedly. ("Police say she's a budding political expert," the Staten Island Advance winks, like a dad.) "We gonna smoke more weed after you leave," the teenager added. "You ain't my dad! You can't tell me what to do." The little angel has a different story: "I blew them a kiss and...

    An appeals court rightly throws a biased judge off the city’s policing lawsuit.The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has confirmed what was already apparent to disinterested observers of the policing battles in New York City: the federal judge who ruled against the New York Police Department in August is deeply biased. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin declared that the NYPD’s stop, question, and frisk practices were deliberately targeted against innocent black and Hispanic New Yorkers. That opinion rested on patent lies against the department and a profound ignorance of policing and crime. But as I argued earlier this year,...

    When New York City's strikingly successful police commissioner, Raymond Kelly, arrived to address students at Brown University, he was harassed, booed and heckled for 30 long minutes. "Racism is not for debate," they shouted. A university official pleaded with the goons, er, students to permit Kelly to speak, reminding them that they would be free to express disagreement during the Q-and-A session afterwards. "Shout him down!" responded a man in the audience, and the crowd did. Episodes like this are tolerated in America because college faculties, administrators and the press almost uniformly share the students' prejudices and haven't the spine...

    Listen, I understand that everyone is talking and writing about the government shutdown and the debt ceiling. I don't have anything to add to that discussion, other than that the dynamics of the situation have not changed materially since December of 2012, when I wrote “The Chicken Game” http://blastedfools.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/the-chicken-game/ I hope that House Republicans will stand their ground, but I don't have anything uniquely insightful on that and certainly not enough to rant for several paragraphs. So, excuse me for that and in the meantime, while we await what will probably be nothing more than a cease fire or a...

    A pair of NYPD detectives rode last weekend with the motorcycle mob that battered a Manhattan dad as his terrified family watched, a source told the Daily News. The two cops apparently waited several days after Sunday’s brutal assault before informing supervisors about their involvement in the high-profile case, the source said.

    At least five off-duty New York Police Department officers have admitted being present at the savage revenge beating last weekend on the Henry Hudson Parkway, according to reports. Among the off duty cops were at least two detectives and three other officers, all who witnessed the attack and did little to stop it. One of the detectives, an undercover narcotics officer, watched as the violence broke out and chose not to break it up for fear of ruining his cover. The five officers were not the only ones present, WABC is reporting that the NYPD is investigating whether several off-duty...

Cops are investigating. A pack of bikers pummeled a driver in upper Manhattan on Sunday, after a wild chase that began with a fender bender on the West Side Highway, cops said. The brawl erupted after the victim — who was driving his wife and their young child — became surrounded by...
