Life During Wartime: NYPD Announces "Wartime" Rules for Patrol and Response

Any 911 call will be responded to with a team of two patrol cars, not just one, which effectively halves the number of emergencies the police will respond to.

This will result in dead civilians.

What do we want? Dead civilians!
When do we want it? As soon as we murder some cops.

I'm hopeful that Obama will interrupt his Hawaiian vacation to tell the cops they've acted stupidly, but I trust he'll just keep golfing.

The first assassination of an NYPD officer since the 1988 ambush of Edward Byrne has rattled the rank-and-file --and prompted cops to adopt drastic "wartime" policing tactics not seen since the 1970s.

"At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be," an e-mail widely circulated among cops advised Saturday night.

Doubling the number of cops responding to even minor 911 calls would effectively cut in half the NYPDís patrol strength....

"These are precautions that were taken in the 1970s when police officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis," the statement added.

"We have, for the first time in a number of years, become a 'wartime' Police Department," the message concluded. "We will act accordingly. FORWARD MESSAGE IN ITS ENTIRETY TO ANY AND ALL [members of the service.]"

Over the weekend, Noah Rothman asked when we would have the "national conversation on violent rhetoric" like we had over Sarah Palin's non-involvement in the shooting of Gabby Giffords.

The answer, of course, is never; the leftists who control our institutions support and cover-up political violence emanating from the left.

Some on the left appear concerned that their preferred "conversation," one that more resembles the lecture about racial disparities in the criminal justice system which has been ongoing virtually unbroken since 1994, could evolve into something they can no longer so easily control.

"The deaths of those two officers should be mourned. Justice should be brought," political commentator and Morehouse College African-American studies professor Marc Lamont Hill wrote. "But letís not get confused or distracted from the big picture."

"Yes, 'all lives matter,'" he added, "But BLACK LIVES are the ones called into question on legal, cultural, psychological, [and] epistemological levels."

What is the basis for insisting that there is no "big picture" to be examined in the execution of two NYPD officers?

I like how casually he dismisses that. "Oh sure that's terrible, but let's not lose sight of the things which are really, and not just rhetorically, terrible."

Giuliani says that Obama the Failure did manage to succeed in one aspect.

"We've had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police," Giuliani said during an appearance on Fox News early Sunday. "The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don't lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong."

He says it goes too far to say DiBlasio is partly to blame for the murders, but he does criticize him for permitting a lawless environment.

...

"I donít think it goes too far to say the mayor did not properly police the protests," Giuliani said. "He allowed the protesters to take over the streets. He allowed them to hurt police officers, to commit crimes, and he didn't arrest them. And when you do that, similar to what happened in Crown Heights, you create a great riot. He should have known better. For that he has to take accountability."
