NY demorats push for social media review as part of firearm background check

From New York City Patch: Two Brooklyn politicians want cops to examine New Yorkers’ online activity to prevent more hate-fueled tragedies like the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. State Sen. Kevin Parker and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams proposed legislation Friday that would incorporate social media accounts into background checks for gun buyers.

They argue doing so would help law enforcement authorities spot dangerous people like Robert Bowers, who reportedly declared his hatred for Jewish people online before allegedly killing 11 people last Saturday.

“You would have thought this person was a model citizen until you examined his social media profile,” said Adams, a Democrat. “And you would have noticed he was not a model citizen, he was a broken citizen that was a time bomb that was waiting to explode.”

The pair of bills would empower the New York State Police and local departments like the NYPD to check three years of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat activity for anyone applying for a gun license in New York, Parker said.

Authorities would flag anything that is an “immediate threat to public safety,” he said. Gun buyers would also have to let police comb through a year’s worth of their search engine histories under the legislation.

The state’s SAFE Act — known as one of the nation’s toughest gun laws — requires instant federal background checks for all gun sales except those between immediate family members. But lawmakers have to do more in the wake of recent hate crimes such as the Pittsburgh shooting, Parker said.

“We certainly want to make sure that we’re adding to the protections that we need to make sure that people that we’re putting handguns and rifles and shotguns in the possession, that they in fact are the people that are using them in the right way,” Parker said.

The syngagogue massacre, in which 11 people died, came just a day after federal authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man accused of mailing bombs to high-profile Democratic figures. Sayoc had searched for his targets’ addresses online, federal prosecutors allege.

Lawmakers are still working out exactly how law-enforcement officials would go about accessing social media profiles that are not publicly viewable, Parker said, though he noted the legislation would require gun buyers to make their profiles available.

“We’re going look at what’s in the universe already and use that as one of the tools to determine the profile of a person who’s attempting to purchase a handgun,” Adams said.

The legislation also would not cover more obscure social media sites such as Gab, on which Bowers reportedly signaled that he was going to carry out violence. But Parker said officials wanted to go after the “low-hanging fruit.”

“How much is it going to cost in human lives if we don’t start checking people’s social media and trying to get a good sense of their understanding?” Parker said.

Libtard Alec Baldwin arrested for punching guy over a parking spot

This guy has some serious anger management issues.

From Hollywood Reporter: Alec Baldwin is in police custody in New York for punching a man over a parking spot (on Friday).

The incident occurred in front of 28 East 10th St. just before 2 p.m. ET, New York Police Department Det. Sophia Mason said. “It looks like it was a dispute over the parking spot, and the person in custody punched him,” Mason said.

Mason confirmed the person in question was Baldwin. No charges have yet been filed.

More from NY Post:

Baldwin was arrested for misdemeanor assault, and is being held at the NYPD’s 6th Precinct station house in Greenwich Village, cops said.

An unidentified third party was holding a parking spot for Baldwin on East 10th Street when another driver swooped in and took the spot away, cops said.”


After Baldwin’s arrest, women reporters shared some stories about the libtard. Some of their tweets, from Twitchy:

  • “Baldwin was the first person I ever experienced being blocked by on Twitter, after he used his account with hundreds of thousands of followers to berate me for…writing about a fundraiser he’d hosted in a way he didn’t find satisfactory.”
  • Alec Baldwin also told me “I hope you choke to death” when I was on assignment, staking out his house.”
  • He called me “a hag” when I noted once that he had multiple nannies.”

How is it that this man still has a job on TV?

Brooklyn council member wants to freeze ICE out of city business

TDS-infected Carlos Menchacca

Demorats Against Citizens of America.

From NY Post: A Brooklyn councilman is pushing a bill that would prohibit the city from contracting business with entities enforcing federal immigration laws.

The City Council’s Immigration Committee on Thursday will hold a hearing on the bill introduced by its chairman, Brooklyn Democrat Carlos Menchacca.

The councilman introduced the measure in response to the Trump administration crackdown on illegal immigrants, but sources said even the left-leaning de Blasio administration has some reservations.

Bitta Mostofi, commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, is expected to testify.

Eric Phillips, a spokesman for the mayor, said the administration “support[s] the goal” of the bill but is “working with the Council to figure out how best to achieve it without affecting our city’s security.”

He declined to specify how security could be affected by the bill.

The legislation, if approved, would apply to existing and future contracts and prohibit the city from providing “goods or … services” in exchange for payments “to entities engaged in immigration enforcement.”

City lawyers are reviewing which current contracts fall under the bill. One that would be affected is a $112,000 contract NYPD has with ICE through February 2020, which allows the federal agency access to a police firing range, city official said.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson said he’s reviewing the legislation and is “looking forward to the hearing.”

“One thing I already know is that ICE has no place in our city ripping immigrant families apart,” he said.

Mom permanently separated from her son when he was brutally executed says she hasn't heard a peep from de Blasio

guzman feliz

Guzman-Feliz aspired to be a cop.


Her son was brutally killed by gang members with machetes. This story went viral on Twitter and has caused much outrage on social media.
Yet de Blasio has plenty of time to head down south to try and visit illegal alien children.
From NY Post: An innocent city kid who dreamed of becoming a cop was executed on a city street last week, yet Mayor de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill had yet to reach out to his family with even a phone call days later.
“I have not heard from them. No, no one in their offices contact me,” Lesandro Guzman-Feliz’s tearful mom, Leandra Feliz, told The Post on Sunday, stopping at one point to kiss a framed photo of her dead son that she clutched during the interview.
“This is him,” she said motioning to the photo. “He was a very good kid. He dreamed about being police.
Guzman-Feliz, 15, was stabbed to death Wednesday outside a Bronx deli by a pack of gangbangers in a suspected case of mistaken identity.
Instead of paying his condolences to Lesandro’s family Sunday, de Blasio instead spent the day holding press conferences on speed cameras and attending the Gay Pride Parade.
A de Blasio spokeswoman said Hizzoner would call the mom “soon” but could not say specifically when pressed by The Post.
NYPD officials said O’Neill would attend a wake for Guzman-Feliz on Monday to pay his respects.
Leandra Feliz spent Sunday making funeral arrangements for her son. He will be buried Wednesday.
Council Speaker Corey Johnson called the killing “a horrible crime against one of our young people. We need people like Lesandro in this city, and it’s just such a tragedy to lose him in this brutal, brutal manner. His is such a loss for all New York. I’m sure he would’ve have grown up to be a police officer and make this city a better place,” Johnson told The Post in a statement.
At least five men have been arrested in the slaying, according to police sources.
The goons — believed to be part of the ruthless Dominican gang Trinitarios — mistook Guzman-Feliz for another youth who allegedly taped a gang member’s female family member having sex, according to police sources.

Gonna be tough on crime? De Blasio aide arrested with gun was riding in SUV that reeked of marijuana

De Blasio aide busted with gun in car

Suspended de Blasio aide, Reagan Stevens


I’m sure anti-gun advocate de Blasio will not let his aide plea bargain her way out of this gun crime, right?
From NY Post: The Mayor de Blasio aide charged with riding around with a loaded gun was nabbed in an SUV that reeked of marijuana, according to a criminal complaint.
Reagan Stevens, 42, was in the back seat of the 2002 Infiniti when she and two others were allegedly caught with the loaded 9mm Hi-Point semiautomatic pistol tucked in a green velvet bag in the glove compartment, court papers said.
Cops noticed there was a “strong odor of marijuana” wafting from the SUV, which was double parked in Jamaica, Queens, near the scene of a shooting Saturday night.
Stevens — whose mother, Deborah Stevens, is a Queens Criminal Court judge and whose stepfather is an acting Queens Supreme Court justice — works as a deputy director in the mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.
The Bay Ridge resident manages youth and strategic initiatives, including implementing a state law that will raise the age at which kids can be prosecuted as adults for nonviolent crimes from 16 to 18.
The gun, which had its serial number scratched off, was loaded with two rounds of ammunition, and a spent round was found on the driver’s side floor.
Cops also found a paintball gun and carbon dioxide cartridges from the rear cargo area of the vehicle and a gravity knife in 25-year-old driver Caesar Forbes’ waistband.
Another man, Montel Hughes, 24, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was charged with marijuana possession after cops allegedly found five Ziploc bags of pot in his coat pocket, the complaint said. A gravity knife was also recovered from the pocket of his pants.
Stevens, Hughes and Forbes were each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. Forbes and Hughes were charged with criminal possession of a weapon related to the gravity knives and Forbes was ticketed for double parking.
Stevens was suspended without pay.
Their arrests followed a burst of five gunshots that activated an NYPD ShotSpotter gunfire-detection device at 9:42 p.m. Saturday at 174th Street and 109th Avenue, sources said.
The trio was parked near the corner of 177th Street and 106th Avenue and arrested around 10:25 p.m.

LAPD predicts even bigger name stars will face sex-crime probes as they reveal there are 28 open investigations

Hillary Clinton best buds with Harvey Weinstein
Ruh roh…
From Daily Mail: The LAPD says it has 28 open sex-crime investigations linked to Hollywood and the media, and that it expects more will come. As well as the investigations it currently has open, the force has also passed on 37 cases to other jurisdictions where it believes the crimes may have occurred.
‘We anticipate the LAPD and other jurisdictions will receive even more high profile sex crime reports in the coming weeks and months,’ Police Chief Charlie Beck told the LA Times. ‘We encourage all victims of sexual assault to come forward to report these crimes.’
Beck said that his department is committed to investigating all cases of sexual assault. To that end, they have opened up two teams of five detectives each, with cold-case investigators on board to help look into historical accusations.
He noted that some – such as Corey Feldman’s claim that he was sexually abused by two adults while a child actor – had passed the statute of limitations. However, he thanked Feldman for coming forward, and asked others who believe that they have been affected to do the same.
‘We recognize the significant trauma these victims suffer at the hands of the predators who commit these heinous crimes,’ Beck said
‘Our detectives are coordinating closely with our local prosecutors and other police agencies including the NYPD. ‘The high profile nature of these particular cases has not changed our unyielding commitment to seek justice for ALL victims of sexual assault.’
Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has also announced this month that veteran sex crimes prosecutors will examine the cases put to them by the LAPD.
Hollywood has been abuzz with sex crime allegations since an investigation into eight claims of sexual harassment and assault against Harvey Weinstein snowballed. More than 50 women have now come forward with claims about Weinstein, with allegations ranging from sexual harassment to rape.
Weinstein is one of those on the LAPD’s books, but he has been joined by a number of other figures as others, emboldened by the high-profile case, have come forward.
Among the others being investigated are Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick, who is accused of raping two actresses and sexually assaulting a third; and Girls writer Murray Miller, who is accused of sexually assaulting an actress.
Hollywood agent Tyler Grasham is also on the books, having been accused of sexually assaulting three men, trading sex for favors with a fourth, and asking a 16-year-old boy to be his boyfriend.

Teen who blasted "f*ck tha police" at NYPD funeral booted from apartment

julien rodriguez

Julien Rodriguez

Na na na na na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye.
From NY Post: A cop-hating Bronx teen has been kicked out of his apartment for repeatedly blasting the rap song “F–k Tha Police” from the window as thousands of NYPD cops gathered to mourn a slain colleague, the building’s superintendent said Friday.
Super Danny Morales said he ordered a tenant to get rid of Julien Rodriguez, 16, and his older sister, who had been staying in the tenant’s third-floor pad. “I called him and told him he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales said.
“I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.”
Morales said he was especially offended because his nephew, Saul Quiles-Morales, is a cop assigned to the nearby 40th Precinct. “I wouldn’t want to see him lying in a box also. We need to respect the police,” he added.
The tenant, who identified himself only as “Jesus,” insisted the incident wasn’t his fault and called Rodriguez and his sister “lowlifes.”
They’re gone. The case is closed. They’re no longer in my house. I don’t know where they went,” he added.
On Tuesday morning, Rodriguez started cranking gangster rap songs from his bedroom when cops began arriving for the funeral of Officer Miosotis Familia at the World Changers Church around the corner.
Familia was shot in the back of the head early July 5 by a gunman who fired without warning through the window of an NYPD truck in which she was filling out her official memo book.
Rodriguez switched to NWA’s infamous anti-police anthem — which includes a line about “taking out a cop or two” — moments before her memorial service was set to start, and only turned it off after 20 cops paid a visit to his apartment.
Rodriguez tried to justify his insolence by claiming that his brother and a friend had been killed by the NYPD, but The Post couldn’t verify that claim based on the names he provided.
The teen’s sister, Suleika Rodriguez, complained Friday that her brother has been threatened over his anti-cop antics, adding: “I got people on Facebook telling him, ‘You’re wrong.’”
“I don’t give a f–k. I already have an apartment,” she said, but refused to elaborate.

After NYPD officer assassinated, De Blasio blows off NYPD ceremony to protest at G20 Summit

de blasio
Priorities.
From NY Post: Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.
Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”
De Blasio will be the keynote speaker, organizers of the demonstration — Hamburg Shows Attitude — tweeted.
The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.
Presumptive Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis accused de Blasio of abandoning pressing issues in the Big Apple to pursue his progressive agenda in Europe. “Unbelievable. Instead of jet-setting around the world, he should be here doing his job,” said the Staten Island assemblywoman. “A police officer was murdered, street homelessness has skyrocketed and people continue to get delayed on the trains.”
Malliotakis — who later tweeted a doctored image showing de Blasio in an Alpine hat and lederhosen, grinning behind a plate of bratwurst, wienerschnitzel and Pilsner glasses — also blasted him for blowing off the NYPD ceremony at the Police Academy in Queens.
“The mayor should be embarrassed by the way he has treated the men and women of our police department,” she said.
The head of the NYPD sergeants union also attacked de Blasio. “As the city mourns, its leader flees,” Ed Mullins said. “And then he wonders why he has a problem with the police. A real leader stays with the city in this time of hardship.”
Less than five hours before de Blasio’s flight to Berlin, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill offered reassurance to 524 new recruits in the wake of Wednesday’s slaying of Officer Miosotis Familia.
The 12-year veteran and mom of three was shot in the back of the head by cop-hating ex-con Alexander Bonds, who opened fire through the window of a mobile command center vehicle.
O’Neill told the recruits he was sure many family members “are questioning whether you’re making the right decision, especially after yesterday’s tragedy in the Bronx.”
“I’m here to tell you, you are making the right decision,” he insisted.
Asked why de Blasio — who spent the day holed up at Gracie Mansion — didn’t join O’Neill to help rally the recruits, spokesman Eric Phillips replied: “Scheduling conflicts.”
O’Neill later offered his condolences to Familia’s 12-year-old twins, Delilah and Peter, during a visit to their home in the Bronx. “There are so many young officers that have never been through this before and for the next couple of days it’s going to be very difficult for them and for the family, too,” he said.
De Blasio was joined on the trip by Phillips and two other aides, whose travel expenses are also being picked up by Hamburg Shows Attitude.
Phillips said the gifts were approved in advance by the city Conflicts of Interest Board, whose general counsel said it was “prohibited by law from disclosing any information regarding advice we provide.”
In October, de Blasio told a class of NYPD recruits, “We honor you for making this choice,” before adding that “what we owe to you is every effort to keep you safe.”
Following Familia’s slaying, her sister, Adriana Sanchez, ripped de Blasio, saying that “the mayor has to do something for this madness to stop,” and that windows on NYPD vehicles should have been made bulletproof “a long time ago.”
Later Thursday, following de Blasio’s departure, City Hall announced a $1.3 million plan to outfit “all NYPD command vehicles used by uniform personnel” with bullet-resistant window panels and other safety upgrades.
The city had already earmarked $10.4 million for window panels in 38,000 patrol vehicles, with 151 equipped as of Wednesday, according to the NYPD.

NY Police Commissioner Bratton slams pro-gun lawmakers as ‘political prostitutes’

Obviously the liberal narrative has been set: Do not blame the shooter, a radical ideology (Islam), the wife who didn’t report the shooter’s intended actions, or the FBI. Gotta blame the NRA, of course.

Bill Bratton


Via NY Post: Police Commissioner Bill Bratton on Tuesday blasted Congress’s failure to restrict access to assault weapons like the ones used in the Orlando massacre, saying pro-gun lawmakers are political prostitutes who put the NRA ahead of the American people.
“Shame on them,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“They are totally beholden — they prostitute themselves in front of the NRA. They are putting the interest of their own political careers and that of the NRA ahead of the American people.”
The harsh comments came when Bratton was asked about a bill rejected by the Senate shortly after the killing of 14 people last December in San Bernardino that would have prohibited people on terrorist watch lists from buying assault weapons.
“If you’re on a terrorist watch list, you can go buy a gun. If you’re on a no-fly list, you can go buy a gun. Or as they are now proposing in Congress … if you are under investigation by the FBI for potential terrorist-related activity, that you might be precluded from getting a gun,” he said. (Mateen wasn’t under any current investigation by the FBI. In fact, the FBI found no sufficient evidence to continue with their investigations. As a result, Mateen was not under investigation or surveillance when he committed the massacre.)
“With this Congress, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for any meaningful action.”
The commissioner defended the FBI from criticism that the agency made a mistake by removing Orlando shooter Omar Mateen from a terror watch list after monitoring him for 10 months beginning in 2013.
“The individual responsible for these murders here was interviewed by the FBI two or three times several years ago and was deemed at that time not to be a person that would warrant full-time surveillance going forward…,” Bratton said.
We have limited resources to work with. The [FBI] is stretched very thin. In New York, I’m fortunate that I’ve got almost 1,000 police officers assigned to counterterrorism along with over 100 assigned to the FBI to work on these cases.”
He added that surveillance of one individual can involve the efforts of anywhere from 18 to 24 officers per day. “If you are dealing with hundreds [of people], who has that type of manpower and resources to be able to do that type of closed surveillance?”
