WSJ's Riley: de Blasio's "Anti-Cop Rhetoric" Made NYPD Slayings More Likely Than It Would Have Been

|

JASON RILEY, WALL STREET JOURNAL: The one person of course who is responsible is the animal who pulled the trigger, he's the one that we hold personally responsible for this and rightly so. And it's also true, that Mayor de Blasio, with his anti-cop rhetoric, has created an atmosphere in the city that has made an occurrence like this much more likely than it otherwise would have been.

You know, what we have learned over the years is that when someone like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson injects himself in racially contentious situations people tend to get killed, whether it's Crown Heights, Brooklyn, back in the early 90s, Freddie's Fashion Mart up in Harlem in the mid-90s, or these anti-cop protests following the Ferguson shootings. When you the mayor, or the president of the United States, or Attorney General Holder, and you choose to align yourself with someone like Al Sharpton instead of with the men in blue who protect our cities nationwide, you're asking for mayhem.
