The head of the Police Benevolent Association is telling people to be on the look out for any potential threat because police are being prevented from doing their job by politicians.
According to the NY Post, Pat Lynch is telling people, “keep both eyes wide open” after there’s been a rash of attacks on subway platforms.
“The politicians have made it abundantly clear that they don’t want cops enforcing transit system rules, connecting the homeless with services, engaging with seriously mentally ill people or doing any of the things necessary to prevent these terrifying random attacks,” Lynch said.
This week, a 40-year-old was shoved onto the tracks of an incoming train. She was injured, but was able to avoid certain death.
It was the fourth incident in a month.
NYC Transit President Sarah Feinberg has pleaded with City Hall to have additional officers present at the transit stations, but so far there has been little movement from Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office.
In fact, de Blasio has rebuked Lynch’s statement.
