NYPD Chief Of Department Blasts Gov. Cuomo For Disrespecting Cops

NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan

NEW YORK (VINnews) — In an exclusive interview with the New York Post, NYPD Chief of Dept. Terence Monahan had some harsh words for Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo made headlines on Tuesday when he denounced NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City police as ineffective in the face of the nightly looting.

“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that,” Cuomo said at his briefing in Albany. “You have 38,000 NYPD people. It is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property.”

When asked about Cuomo’s comments, Monahan said he was “extremely outraged.”

“I’m watching my men and women out there dealing with stuff that no cop should ever have to deal with, bricks, bottles, rocks,” he said. “Hit in the face with bottles and continuing to go forward to make an arrest.”

“This leadership team from every angle of this department is out on the streets, working side by side with their men, and for a governor to be sitting in his office saying that we’re not doing a good job — I’m outraged.”

Monahan also expressed his frustration with Mayor de Blasio’s controversial bail reform policy, which means that the violent thugs that the police had to quite literally walk through fire to arrest, will be back out on the streets in no time.

“When it comes to a burglary, which is a commercial store, which is looting, they’re back out,” Monahan said. “Because of bail reform, you’re back out on the street the next day. You cannot be held on any sort of bail. I spoke to (Manhattan District Attorney) Cy Vance about that. He told me there was nothing he could do.”

Yesterday, footage captured Chief Monahan in streets of Washington Square Park, where he showed solidarity by taking a knee and hugging peaceful protestors.

Afterwards, a visibly emotional Monahan spoke in support of the crowd.

    • Maybe blacks should quit looting and robbing and get a real job in life. They are not currying favor with any intelligent American citizen at this time. The entire Nation is watching what is happening in their cities and towns by black gangsters. There is a reason why there is a certain stereotype that Americans have towards these blacks that walk around with their torn trousers hanging below their buttock and wreaking havoc on law abiding citizens private property. Their current actions only strengthens that sentiment. If your different and open minded, put your money where your mouth is. Invite these thugs to YOUR house for dinner on Thursday evening. Don’t pontificate from the comfort of your exclusive all white neighborhood.

    • I think that Monahan is going to be forced into retirement. I remember when a four star general started to bad mouth Clinton, that he was forced to retire.

  1. The governor and mayor need to resign. They say the NYPD is the greatest and they don’t back them. The looting would be worked if not for our police force. They need to resign now.

  2. You’re right, he too should quit. All of them should.
    Then you’ll have a good excuse to hide out in your shelter bunker and throw flowers at the troops entering.

  3. If the cops really want to get back at the esteemed and distinguished Mayor, I have the perfect solution. They should repeat what they did in 1971, when they had the “Blue Flu”, as well as a work slowdown. Then, they either didn’t come into work, or remained in the station precinct houses, and refused to patrol the streets. The only ones who patrolled were Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains, as well as Detectives. The slowdown lasted for several days, and the cops were all heavily fined, although none were fired. Later on, in the summer of 1977, during the riots, as a result of a massive city wide blackout, many cops simply refused to leave their homes and come into work. Then, the rioting was contained to Brooklyn and the Bronx. I don’t recall any stores being looted in midtown Manhattan, or in Queens. I remember at that time the cops stated “they won’t let us do our jobs, what what is the sense of coming into work”.

  4. the new york city cops need to protest together with the protesters , this will bring peace between them to stop the looting damage and carnage
