In an incident reported this Sunday at the intersection of East 168 Street in the Bronx, a group of Dominicans committed a violent act in which they assaulted city police officers and threw glass bottles at them.
A video traveling through the social network shows New York policemen having heated discussions with a group of Dominican people. Police members can be heard saying, “Wait, stay behind.”
Dominicans who caused the act were classified as “courageous criminals” by the Detective Staffing Association thanks to laws without consequences that exist in New York.
The association published a statement accompanying the video, in which they assure that the city is in a state of crisis.
“Politicians may continue to ignore New York’s zealous criminals created with no-consequences laws, but the voting public and the police officers who serve them are at risk. The city is in crisis and the governor, legislature and many prosecutors are in danger.” Missing,” wrote the union serving more than 20,000 active officers in NY.
“It’s ridiculous how bad it is to have disrespect for law enforcement… and those in power just turn a blind eye!” A user wrote in the post.
Just on Sunday, police reported a shooting that occurred during celebrations of a Dominican parade in the Bronx and could have led to a dispute between police and Dominicans. The incident happened after Mayor Eric Adams opened the parade.
Officers recovered a weapon at the scene, and were arresting a young man for shooting at the time of the violent act in which they were attacked.
