New York Police union taunts mayor over daughter’s arrest

Share

Chiara De Blasio, 25-year-old daughter of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, was arrested by the police for unlawful assembly during the Manhattan protest on Saturday night.

The mayor said the New York City Police Department had experienced "horrible, vile things" and added that "tremendous violence. will not stand".

Demonstrations have been sparked across the country in the past week after the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, on May 25. In a May 28, tweet he was taken to task after voicing support for George Floyd's family, calling for his killer's arrest. After objects were thrown at the vehicle, a second NYPD van approaches and drives through part of the crowd and the initial vehicle hit the gas and drove through the people who were standing in front of it.

For the third day in a row, protests across New York City were largely peaceful during the daylight hours Sunday but turned violent at night.

News 12's Phil Taitt was on Bedford and Snyder avenues where there was a standoff between protesters and police officers. "I'm not gonna blame officers who are trying to deal with an absolutely impossible situation". So, we gotta get back to leaders talking about unity. But let's begin at the beginning. Several police vehicles were vandalized and some were set on fire.

"I love my daughter deeply, I honor her and she is such a good human being, she only wants to do good in the world, she wants to see a better and more peaceful world".

Android 11 beta launch postponed indefinitely
A revised timeline pushed all this back by a month, the beta was rescheduled for June but a Q3 release window remained. However, what's sure is that the final release date of Android 11 will be happening in the third quarter of this year.

"This is not what we campaigned on in 2013", Rebecca Katz, one of de Blasio's top former advisers, said. "We need to do a full investigation and look at the actions of those officers and see what was done, why it was done, how it could've been done differently".

The headline/subhead: "THEY WANT RUIN: De Blasio blasts agitators using protests to destroy". Defending and making excuses for NYPD running SUVs into crowds was wrong.

On Sunday morning, de Blasio clarified his comments about the video, saying he didn't like what he saw "one bit" and announced an independent review into the video.

"She was acting peacefully", he said on Monday.

"Look, I've seen that video, and I've obviously heard about a number of other instances - it's inappropriate for protesters to surround a police vehicle and threaten police officers", De Blasio said.

Nearly forgotten in the rioting and its aftermath are the 33 injured police officers who are sworn to protect New Yorkers. We need rapid, real de-escalation and we need it right now.
