NYPD Police Commissioner Puts BlackLivesMatter On Blast Over Assassinated Cop [VIDEO]

NYPD Police Commissioner Puts BlackLivesMatter On Blast Over Assassinated Cop [VIDEO]

This week brought us the emotional goodbye to Officer Miosotis Familia, where the NYPD’s Police Commissioner James O’Neill gave an emotional eulogy that shamed anti-police operatives, particularly Black Lives Matter.

We found out recently that Officer Familia, who was killed last week in an unprovoked attack, was murdered by an ex-convict by the name of Alexander Bonds, who at 34 recently posted a video on Facebook where he threatened to “do something” about the police officers he claimed were “killing people.”

Officer Familiar, 48, was shot in the head while she sat in her mobile command unit, busy writing into her notebook. She was a 12-year veteran of the police force and leaves behind three children.

So, why is Commissioner James O’Neill’s eulogy making headlines? For one, because NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio did not attend, instead spending the day at the mayoral residence, but did visit Officer Familia’s children later that day. The second reason rests entirely on his words and his condemnation of groups who are formed to cherish the lives of black Americans, unless they do not fit into their narrative.

Let me tell you something,” he said. “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.

“So, where are the demonstrations for this single mom, who cared for her elderly mother and her own three children?” he asked pointedly.

The attendees gave the rhetorical question a long standing ovation.

“There is anger and sorrow, but why is there no outrage? Because Miosotis was wearing a uniform? Because it was her job?” he continued.

“I simply DO NOT accept that,” he proclaimed. “Miosotis was targeted, ambushed, and assassinated. She wasn’t given a chance to defend herself. That should matter to every single person who can hear my voice, in New York City and beyond.

“We know there’s evil in this world. That’s why we need the police,” O’Neill continued, “But as New Yorkers, we can decide that people like Miosotis’ killer will ultimately fail. He will not drive us apart. We can decide to come together and make our city reflect the good inside all of us, the hopes and simple dreams we share.”
