NYPD Requests 450 More Cops For Counterterrorism

NYPD Counterterrorism

As if the War on Terror wasn’t terrifying enough, thrusting our military into an unjustifiable war that cannot be won, now the NYPD is milking the manufactured fear to justify adding more officers to their department. The request for 450 more cops for ‘counterterrorism’ purposes by NYPD Commissioner William Bratton seems more like a ploy to artificially inflate a public service industry that has fallen below the standards of many of the citizens it serves. According to Newsday:

NYPD Commissioner William Bratton said Sunday that he’s seeking funding for 450 additional police officers for counterterrorism efforts — a midpoint between Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proposal of zero new cops and the City Council’s request for 1,000 in the city budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

banner420The officers would be put immediately to work addressing new threats to the city from the Islamic State, Bratton said in a radio interview with host John Catsimatidis on AM 970.

Bratton cited a “significantly increased threat from ISIS using social media to recruit people not only to go to Syria to fight, but encouraging people — whatever country they live in — to attack police, to attack government officials.”

“I’m going to put another 450 police officers — if we get the approval to increase the size of the police force, and I need to do it very very quickly — into our counterterrorism operations,” the city’s top cop said on “The Cats Roundtable.”

When in the middle of an ongoing ‘War on Terror’, police involvement in counterterroism does nothing to dispel the fears nationwide that our police have become militarized. If that sounds far fetched consider that the NYPD operates a counterterrorism unit in Israel, or that the NYPD have been trained in tactics by Israeli counterterrorism units. Meanwhile the police kill more American citizens than terrorists by several magnitude. When the police have become the terrorists and yet ask for more resources to fight the War on Terror, then what exactly does that make U.S. citizens?

Fucked.
