NYPD Reacts to Police Killings — Announces All Officers, Even Patrol, Will Be Dressed for War

NYPD-dressed-for-warBy Matt Agorist

Earlier this month, during an entirely peaceful protest, a murderer opened fire on crowds of police officers. Five Dallas cops were tragically killed and seven others injured. Only days after the Dallas attack, three more cops were killed in Baton Rouge, when a former Marine with PTSD ambushed them. 

Both of these attacks were carried out by sick individuals who thought that killing random police officers would somehow advance their cause. They could not have been more wrong.

As the Free Thought Project has previously warned, these attacks do nothing to stop police violence against citizens. In fact, it has the exact opposite effect. Now, when cops needlessly kill someone, their actions will be under less scrutiny from the public. All the police have to say now is “Dallas” or “Baton Rouge.”

Violently attacking the government creates victims out of the ones we are trying to expose as criminals.

Those who initiate and support such violence will be complicit in creating the hellish police state that will inevitably ensue as a consequence of their actions.

It will start a war in which the people are the enemy. Indeed, it already has.

According to the NYPD, instead of body cameras to increase accountability, all cops, even those on patrol, will now be dressed for battle.

As the NYPD News reports:

The NYPD has begun a $7.5 million project to purchase personal protective equipment, including heavy ballistic vests and helmets, to further enhance the safety of responding officers in the event of an active shooter situation. Twenty thousand ballistic helmets will be distributed to all uniformed members of the service assigned to patrol functions. Additionally, six thousand heavy ballistic vests, which contain a front and rear level three panel, will be furnished in 3,000 vehicles assigned to patrol duties (two per vehicle.) Delivery of the equipment will begin at the end of the summer and continue through January, until all vests and helmets have been distributed.

“Now, more than ever, society is asking its police officers to go into harm’s way and to face grave danger,” said Police Commissioner William J. Bratton. “The department is fortunate to have the financial support to ensure that as they do, they have the best equipment and protection available.”

Aside from turning the NYPD into a standing army, these senseless murders have put cops across the nation on the offensive. As the Free Thought Project reported, cops have no problem going public declaring the citizens as the enemy in their new ‘war.’

this-is-war-768x316“We are at war!” exclaimed Major Yates. “The men and women behind the badge know it. Good leaders know it, and decent communities know it. For the safety of all of our men and women behind the badge, it is time our country knows it.” In what some might consider a remarkable specimen of hyperbole, Major Yates compares the emotional impact of recent episodes in which police officers have been murdered to the 9/11 attacks, writes Will Grigg for the Free Thought Project.

“I’ll never forget the mood at the squad meeting at 3 pm on September 11, 2001,” Yates recalls. “ I gathered with about 20 cops in the same room that we had deployed out of for years but this day was different.  Our country had been attacked and we were pissed. In fact, several from that day joined the military and others seriously pondered it.”

make-no-mistakeat-warJust before the Dallas shootings, the tide in America was shifting. The deaths of Philando Castille and Alton Sterling shook the nation out of its stupor. Americans citizens and even police officers were demanding that this senseless violence against innocent people be immediately halted.

However, thanks to more senseless violence, the American police state has not only been ostensibly justified — all the work people have done to roll it back — is being undone.

In a reactionary response to the shooting of cops, Pres. Obama now plans to review — and potentially repeal — the May, 2015 ban on police obtaining military surplus equipment like riot gear, explosives, armored vehicles, grenade launchers, bayonets, and more.

Violence breeds violence.

The sooner people realize this, the sooner we can talk about real solutions. However, ignorance on both sides of this argument is preventing any solutions from being talked about.

If you honestly believe that black lives matter, it is your duty to call for an end to the drug war.

And if police honestly want to prevent violence, it is their duty to refuse to enforce immoral laws that criminalize arbitrary substances and personal choices.

When the government makes certain substances illegal, it does not remove the demand. Instead, the State creates crime by pushing the sale and control of these substances into the illegal black markets. All the while, demand remains constant. Criminal gangs form to protect and maintain demand, in turn, sending black-on-black crime statistics through the roof.

Tasking police with enforcing this ridiculous war creates constant hostile interactions. Remove the drug war and remove most of these confrontations and remove the incentive for gang violence — thereby fostering peace.

We can look at the prohibition of alcohol and the subsequent mafia crime wave that ensued as a result as an example. The year 1930, at the peak of prohibition, happened to be the deadliest year for police in American history. 300 police officers were killed, and innumerable poor people slaughtered as the State cracked down on drinkers.

When people’s freedoms to do as they wish without harming others become threatened — the people lash out. This can be seen throughout history.

We are winning and can beat these tyrants. But, if people continue to stoop to the same level of senseless violence and removal of due process as them, we will not only lose, but fulfill Orwell’s prediction of the future — “a boot stamping on a human face — forever.”

  1. I’m not convinced these events actually happened as we were told. I’m more inclined to believe they were “false flags” that were carried out in order to ease in just this type of police militarization because the PTBs seem to be expecting the people to turn on them at any moment. I’m quite sure that “lone” shooters (private citizens) did not do any of the acts mentioned in this article.

  2. Just like Pavlov’s dog! (conditioning for a CONTROLLED response)

  3. So typical of the NYPD; when face with a situation created by their behavior they double down on the same type of behavior that got them into the mess to start with. Are they stupid or it is still policy to hire just-barely-above-average IQ cops and wash out all others? There is no cure for stupid.

  4. That was a drill…Never happened the way it is told by the globalists…

  5. Looks like everything is unfolding according to plan.

  6. Be it Sandy Hook, Miami Pulse Club, or Dallas, all were FAKE! Mini-False-Flags if you will. Now hardly anyone will object to the STANDING ARMY that Thomas Jefferson warned about and is surely turning in his grave. Even most of the police believe that they are doing the right thing. Step by step the globalists dream, just a hand full of psychopaths, are taking full control of the world. Even a roach knows when he is being cornered, but not people. The goyim that are still alive after WW3 will be 100% slaves.

  7. There has been more than one POlice ‘officer’ from New York who’s come out stating the facts about 911. Who did it, and who didn’t. Yet here we have a bunch of yahoo’s with no sense whatsoever continuing the same MSM narrative that it was 19 Saudi’s with magic box cutters.
    Just really makes one wonder if the ‘cell phone’ towers in NY are emitting their mind control frequencies in a higher than normal power range.
    I mean people just can’t be that brainwashed or that stupid can they? The brainwashing they’ve undergone during their trips to Israel can’t be this effective can it? MY GOD. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!

  8. Yes, the Police are definitely at war with the American people!

    Talk about a hoax, the whole BLM movement IS based on a LIE. We knew that after the investigation was complete and the testimony of eyewitnesses to the FACTS. Not some made up scenario made to fit their narrative. If perpetrators of crime can’t do the tims, or in these cases take a bullet, DON’T DO THE CRIME!! As we see in the long run it doesn’t pay. Behave yourselves and the popo won’t be buggin ya’ll. Just saying. Hats off to the blue suiters, they keep us free from criminals and make the streets safe for one and all.

  10. You just do not go around killing Police officers , It is no wonder they are now gearing up for war because of this WH and its lawlessness attitude towards Police in general. Obama needs to start to talk on the need of the Black community to address the break-down of the Family unit, and having children out of wedlock and no fathers in the households . Teen boys joining gangs and dealing in drugs on a daily basis .

  11. This actually makes sense. Congratulations NYC. I bet San Francisco wouldn’t consider it.

  12. Police in every City should be dressed like this because they are in a war against this Criminals and are there to protect US ALL.

    Regardless of how it happened, there have been a lot of dead cops in the U.S. in the past 1-2 years. There are a lot of un-medicated mental health patients out there plus the terrorist wackos. Having said that, with the very negative public relations image that several incidents have caused for law enforcement, is this really the answer? Will this equipment protect officers? Obviously “Yes,” but does it also send the wrong message to the public that they are gearing up for war against the populace they are sworn to protect and serve? And we know that if the equipment is out there, there will be gung-ho cops who will flaunt it and use it to further intimidate the citizenry. A milder approach of having the equipment available but not daily deployed and some basic communication and public relations programs might allow the cops to realize that they are not royalty dealing with “subjects” daily.
