BREAKING: NYPD to Permanently Patrol Protests with Machine Guns

(ANTIMEDIA) NEW YORK, NY- NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that 350 heavily armed NYPD officers, called the “Strategic Response Group,” will soon be patrolling protests and the city at large.

He said the new strain of hyper-armed police will be

“…equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not. They’ll be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and machine guns — unfortunately sometimes necessary in these instances.”

Bratton announced  their purpose is specifically

“…designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris.”

Lumping protesters in with terrorists, he said the permanent force will deal with “disorder control and counterterrorism protection capabilities.” It will allegedly assist on crime scenes and help with “crowd control and other large-scale events.”

It is not unusual for authorities to ramp up “security” efforts following attacks (such as the ax attack against officers in October), but the idea of machine-gun clad officers is disturbing, especially considering past NYPD abuses of protesters and other residents.

The federal government, which has attempted to feign concern with police brutality, is partially funding the militarized venture. The Department of Homeland Security is supplying resources, as is the city of New York. The Pentagon has previously provided machine guns, ammuniton, and other military gear to New York police and other local cops around the country.

The program is set to begin with two precincts in Queens and two in Manhattan, though Bratton did not specify when. During the announcement at a Police Foundation breakfast at the Mandarin Hotel, Bratton also said his plan was backed by both Mayor Bill de Blasio (who came under fire from cops last year) and the city council.

He said the effort is intended to improve police relations with communities since “regular” police will no longer be called from their local precincts to deal with protests and alleged security threats:

“For years we’ve been asking our officers to engage in the community, but we’ve never given them time to do it, or the training.”

Such “crises” will now be handled by the machine gunning cops (machine guns are banned for private citizens). Bratton has also previously asked the city for more tasers to “improve relations” by reducing fatal shootings.

In his Thursday announcement, Bratton additionally called on the MTA to install cameras on all subways-for safety, of course.

Unsurprisingly, there is outrage against the proposed plan. Priscilla Gonzalez, Organizing Director of Communities United for Police Reform, said Bratton’s

“…demands for less oversight of the NYPD and a more militarized police force that would use counter-terrorism tactics against protesters are deeply misguided and frankly offensive. We need an NYPD that is more accountable to New Yorkers and that stops criminalizing our communities, especially when people are taking to the streets to voice legitimate concerns about discriminatory and abusive policing. Despite growing evidence that discriminatory broken windows is a failed and harmful policing strategy, Commissioner Bratton stubbornly continues to defend and expand it.”

The move comes as crime has dropped in New York and the police ticket-writing boycott in protest of Mayor de Blasio led to no increase in conflict.

  1. Cops ONLY know how to escalate tensions and violence. It's only a matter of time before they begin to USE those machineguns.

  9. Just what police need, more opportunity to murder American Citizens.

    Over 80 Americans including children have been murdered by police in less than the first month of January 2015. Over 80 killed by police and zero police have been killed.

    This shows how little police and their terrorist leaders think of Americans.

  13. In case my comment wasn't clear, by "they" I meant the NYPD. As in, if the NYPD want the people to go to war with the police, the people will go to war with the police. I realized when looking at my comment, that it could be taken as blaming the protesters for police brutality. That is definitely not what I meant.

  18. If this doesn't resonate with you, then you are too far gone (Zombie). Now out Constitution gives us the Freedom to bare arms. With the strategy that NY Police are going to implement, what if all the protestors, or those that plan to protest, did so with guns, and rifles? Would New York Police call in the Armed Forces to patrol protestors. WTF is going on other than an attack on US American freedom Think about where this is going? If a crowd gets violent and the Police or even just one believes his life is in danger he will use deadly force and how many people protesting will die because of this new strategy. Yeah it is sad about those 2 patrol men assinated in their patrol car and the culprit should pay with his life, but the guy that did that wasn't involved in any protest. In essence, NY has now used Military tactics to disuede (sp?) people from protesting. How outrageous. And lets not end their, they (the machine gun toting Police) will be roaming the streets with fully automatic weapons of mass destruction! In essence, the military will now be patrolling a US city. Hitler did the same thing. Open your eyes America this is down right wrong. Next, we will have to carry our passports around (like the SS), then the Police will Patrol Cities with tank like weapons of mass destruction, then the Military will take over…. can you see where this is headed?

  28. Tom – what is your point? If that cop had been carrying an automatic weapon, guess who would have it now? Sometimes, people get killed. You can't stop that by militarizing. How is that working out in South and Central America?

  30. Sam, as I read the article, it indicates that there will be units patrolling regularly with automatic rifles. That is different than having access to them in need. Other PDs are learning that having paramilitary police forces is detrimental to civil behavior. The feds have said they will stop sending surplus military gear to local PDs. for just that reason.

  41. Doug Daniel Mims You don't have to know every cop in the world. There are recorded incidents of what is called "Sympathetic Fire" by police. In which one officer fires so everyone else does too, before the cease fire can be called. This has resulted in hostages being killed, loss of life in friendly fire incidents, and even the death of innocent civilians not involved.

    All of that is with the standard weapons used by the police, and we want to give them heavier weapons? I will be steering clear of NYC on principal.

  42. So why are full auto paramilitary weapons of ass destruction even needed in a "gun free" city . WTH are we living now .Occupied Poland , Nazi Germany . Americans have lost their minds . we stand idly by while our country becomes a military dictatorship police state , that America has traditionally condemned , and taught us in school how evil and cruel to its citizens these systems are . This IS NOT the America I grew up in . This whole national militarization scenario is turning into a really bad science fiction movie . Any minute now they will begin collecting citizens and hauling us all off to detention centers for even the most minor offenses ( i.e. speaking out against the "system" ) . To use the words of other posters . This definitely does not end well . Today New York . Tomorrow the nation . Isn't it ironic how all of these oppressive government / police motions are occurring under the tutelage of "liberal" political leaders . When and where are the Safety valves or controls on the extent of this madness . It may be time to look for another country of residence . Like it or not our own government locally and nationally is INVITING civil insurrection . The empire is about to historically implode ( consume itself ) . The results will be cataclysmic , and I don't care to be anywhere near it .

  43. This is just plain disgusting. This is what a police state looks like. If you are actually insane enough to support this, and think that protesters should be grouped together with terrorists, then you are a part of the problem. The police should be accountable to the people! Not the other way around!

  44. Tom Goffnett I don't want them disarmed, I want the force cut in half or even 2/3 and all of them to wear cameras and be prosecuted when they break the law.

  45. Jim Corkern The cameras do not work. They have already been tried. They get turned off very purposefully and the cops always and forever cover all their wrong doing up. I want them all disarmed. They can perform their duties as peace officers. They can do the paperwork for car accidents and if someone gets shot they can show up and investigate and do the paperwork. That is all they are needed for. Last year 50 cops in the United States – city, county, state and federal combined, 50 cops were shot and killed. What percentage of those created the mess that got them killed is probably 95%, not to mention friendly fire. The cops killed 1100 U.S. citizens last year. When you give an idiot a firearm and tell them its okay to shoot if they feel threatened – they don't have to think.

  47. The thompson sum machine gun and the Browning automatic rifle are just two that come to mind that were issued to the police in 1930s. They also had armoured vehicles and half tracks. JS. and Jim why so angry. Must not have been spanked much as a kid. Passive agressive violence is still a crime if you are hindering the rights and lives of other citizens. Defiance of this respect is met with force. I do find it comical to watch these protesters being hauled off. Remind me of my toddler throwing a temper tantrum. No cooth in their cause.

  48. Doug Daniel Mims, we seen enough of them kill people already this year now, what will happen when, they can kill several people instead of just one or two, the best thing they could have done for their safety is to hold the murdering cops accountable. Our safety matter too not just thiers.

  61. Fortuneately I have a place reserved for me, only by His blood after this life. i.e. JESUS CHRIST is my Lord & Savior, but I hate to watch the destruction. I believe that you too are of my Faith in God through the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross? Years ago I used to pussy foot around the Christian thing, saying nothing more than I typed before the "i.e." in this reply. But as I watched others boldly go where few Christians have gone i.e. Mormons, Scientology and as it grew more progressive Islam, I decided enough of this walking on egg shells. The tide has turned too far, we as Christians somehow started or at least followed this Politically Correct thing, maybe lulled into it, maybe logically, but somehow I don't think JC would go to S.F. Ca, see a homosexual couple and say, it's cool you guys. It is not my place to judge and I am in the gray with a lot of the things I think I should say or do. But, by God, the fact that I am saved by His blood, I know what to do and what to say. And I do.

  62. They are raising these newer generations in the new fascist police state and prison industrial complex culture. The older generations, they know will soon die-off and not pose a threat. The Posse Comitatus Act and the Bill of Rights, has been trumped by the NDAA, The Patriot Act, and the Enemy Expatriation Act. I have watched the systematic suppression of both civil liberties and the militarization of local and state police and the blatant murder of U.S. citizens; for the slightest of offenses. This social-conditioning is partly in preparation for the economic collapse, once the people finally wake-up and realize that we are not in a recovery, and demand answers to the biggest transfer (meaning theft) of our money in U.S. history. We no longer live in a representative government. The American people fell asleep at the wheel and allowed their government to be hijacked by corporate goons and central bankers who are looting us left and right. We are now in de facto population reduction through autogenocide. It is so subtle, incremental and insidious by design, but those of us who know what real freedom is can see it clearly.

  71. Mike Clarke Let me answer your question by reposting the title of this article "BREAKING: NYPD to Permanently Patrol Protests with Machine Guns".
    Machine gun as defined by dictionary.com, or I can go to Webster's dictionary and get you the exact same thing.

    Machine Gun definition:

    noun
    1.
    a small arm operated by a mechanism, able to deliver a rapid and continuous fire of bullets as long as the trigger is pressed.

    Now go back to school and learn something. How ridiculous an argument, semi, fully automatic. Doesn't mean sh*t when you get hit by a bullet while abiding by the constitution and peacefully assembling. Yeah there are bound to be some people who hide themselves amongst those peacefully protesting that will do things which that are illegal, but if your mom was out there protesting something she had the balls to stand for and the police open fired with "Machine Guns" on the crowd and your mom was killed, you'd be singing a different song my man. POINT: Do you really want to allow Police Men to monitor protests with automatic rifles???? My bet is that you aren't man enough to go out and protest anything because of fear.

And reread the title of this article, if you're gonna throw up your opinion like pea soup read and learn the definition. And to make one more point, when and where was that picture taken? Have you even heard of "stock photography"? Maybe photoshopped. Look beyond the pictures, put down your crayons and read. You might actually learn something.

  88. Daniel Eide Have you ever been under a state of martial law? Do you understand it fully? I am sure you don't by your statement. Under that guise, we would be called "Insurgents" or "terrorist" because we fight back against an unjust tyranny.

    You, like Josie misunderstood my comment because you did not take the time to read and then think it through, or you lack any ability to grasp context.

    No, the nutjobs can't finish it and I stated…and I quote "There are enough nutjobs out there to start a war against police". Then I went further by stating…and I quote: "Then the people have no choice for the sake of survival." Does that suggest the nut jobs finish it? Did you notice the word "People"? Guess not hotshot. Most "nutjobs" kill their-selves after the fact…cowards, never to fight again and have no just cause for their actions in the first place.

    Lastly, one battle does not cause martial law, many or several battles in various locations institutes martial law. Single, small and insignificant battles brings overwhelming force specific to that area, not martial law.

    You are the one that needs to start educating yourself and thinking things through. You mirrored my point until you exposed that you are lacking with the last sentence. You need to work on comprehension.

Certainly you wouldn't want to have to carry around your passport just to run to store to get a big gulp or going to the movies. I don't really have a problem with having to carry your passport when traveling en mass transit, but I would if just for going out for a walk a police officer could stop me, ask me for my passport then haul me off to jail for not carrying iy. Ty for your comments.

  96. Flila Owler nah…… No match for organized military force with all the bells and whistles of a small army. Gun owners will be the first ones they take out. Besides, Flila, if guns are so effective against the evil forces of government, why haven't you gun owners done something about it before now? I think that most gun owners see them as tools for their own amusement. Nothing more than that.

  100. Yes I did read the article, they are not "machine guns", they are Assault Rifles because of the escalation of violence in the last months and years such as many killings, terrorist attacks ect. They won't just go around shooting innocent protestors unless everyone has guns and starts a war.

  101. Those are rifles that are no more powerful than what you or I can legally purchase at any gun store.
