Police union president: “NYC is slowly crumbling”

The union blames the police commissioner. Yet plenty of blame to go around, starting with anti-cop mayor Bill de Blasio.

From NY Post: The fatal shooting at a Brooklyn block party overnight — just steps away from where cops were doused with water last weekend — is proof the city is “slowly crumbling,” the Sergeants Benevolent Association said Sunday.

In a scathing email sent out to union members, SBA President Ed Mullins blamed Police Commissioner James O’Neill for the state of the city and called his removal.

“None of it is funny, 12 people were shot, someone is dead, and cops were hit with water. NYC is slowly crumbling. Don’t say you weren’t warned. Restore the NYPD – REMOVE O’NEILL!” Mullins wrote.

The email included one sergeant’s account of the aftermath of the shooting at the annual “Old Timers Day” party, which they described as “nothing short of a WAR ZONE” with hundreds of people refusing to listen to police.

The sergeant said gun violence was quite common at the event attended by thousands — despite Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s Tweet calling it a “peaceful neighborhood event.”

But this year was “one of the craziest incidents” with about 40 people arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction, according to the sergeant.

The crowd of about 500, who were hanging out drinking and smoking weed after the shooting, were “extremely agitated” police were in a courtyard at New Lots and Mother Gaston Boulevard, according to the sergeant.

“People were yelling vulgar and vile things at all the Cops, such as WE WISH YOU WOULD DIE and a litany of other HORRIFIC TERMS,” the email read.

RFK human rights charity bailed out reputed Bloods gang member

From NY Post: He’s a reputed killer Bloods gang member recently accused of toting a loaded pistol onto a city bus — but that didn’t matter to Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights when the foundation bailed him out.

In October, the group sprang 18-year-old Asa “ASAP” Francis — a violent member of the Bloods-affiliated Martense Beverly Bosses gang, which has been wreaking havoc on southeastern Brooklyn streets while duking it out with the rival Folk Nation-affiliated Collect Your Guap crew, according to a July indictment charging the suspect and 17 other accused gangbangers.

Francis — who was sprung by the charity after allegedly being caught with a loaded, .40-caliber Smith and Wesson gun in his waistband when he tried to skip out on paying bus fare — had pledged to kill on behalf of his gang, court papers charged.

During a phone call to an incarcerated cohort in 2016, he bragged that when he shows up somewhere with a gun, “That’s a murder scene,” the indictment said.

“It’s just total lunacy — it ­really is,” Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins told The Post Tuesday of Francis’ bailout by RFK, headed by Robert F. Kennedy’s daughter Kerry Kennedy.

“I think the RFK foundation should be held accountable if these individuals go out and hurt anybody else.”

A high-ranking police source raged of the charity, “They don’t care about the public’s safety. They’re just trying to prove a point,’’ referring to the group’s mantra that the city needs to revamp its bail system.

Francis was busted in June on charges of second-and fourth-degree conspiracy for plots to obtain illegal guns and use them to murder gangland enemies.

He and his cohorts “cavalierly discuss shooting at rivals as if they were keeping score at a basketball game,” Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said at the time. “But this is not a game. There is a trail of dead and injured victims.”

Francis’ $10,000 bail on those charges was posted Aug. 8 by his mom, Nicole Brown, a clerical associate for the city Department of Transportation who makes just $48,000 a year, according to bail receipts and payroll records. She forked over $8,000 in cash but had to put the rest on a credit card, a receipt shows.

On Oct. 12, Francis was back in jail on the weapons incident on the bus, according to a criminal complaint. His bail was again set at $10,000, despite prosecutors’ request that it go up to $50,000, according to sources.

And despite it all, RFK plunked down the $10,000 needed to free him again. He was released Oct. 30.

The suspect has been staying with his mom, stepdad and their two young kids in Flatlands, according to Francis’ grandmother Lorna Lunan. “He has a potential but followed the wrong company,” Lunan, 63, told The Post.

“And if he just sticks by himself, he will make it. I’m just hoping and praying.”

RFK did not respond to a request for comment.
