The New York Police Department has offered a $12,000 reward for the arrest and convictions of seven protestors who attacked 2 police lieutenants during a peaceful protest on the Brooklyn Bridge. A YouTube video shows one of the protestors punching a police lieutenant in the face. The police used remarkable restraint against the violent protestors.
Justice League NYC has staged protests in New York in response to a Staten Island grand jury's decision not to charge a NYPD cop who killed Eric Garner with an illegal chokehold.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton didn’t say “allegedly” when he revealed photos Tuesday of the seven cop-haters wanted for attacking two lieutenants on the Brooklyn Bridge.
Unlike Mayor Bill de Blasio — who infuriated NYPD cops when he used the word in a statement Saturday night about the mob assault while praising the “peaceful” protesters — Bratton didn’t hold back as he called the suspects “agitators and anarchists.”
“Their world is a very different world oftentimes than the world the rest of us live in. They don’t like government, they don’t like society, they don’t like anything,” Bratton said at Police Headquarters. “So they’re seeking to take advantage of it.”
Bratton, who announced a $12,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the unidentified suspects, said the images were copied and enhanced from a two-minute video posted on YouTube.
