Big news in Manhattan today and a likely victory for the BLM movement under the backdrop of nonsensical charges. According to the office of Cyrus Vance (that’s the DA here guys), the charges of felony assault against Derrick Ingram have been dropped to a misdemeanour assault. The charges stem from a July episode in Queens, whereas, cops allege that Abraham used a blow-horn in a female officers’ ear.
He now faces little to no jail time if convicted.
NYC Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch blasted the decision to drop the felony charge against Ingram.
‘Is there any doubt who is in charge of this city now? The criminal mob is dictating their terms to the NYPD brass and district attorneys, who are tripping over themselves to comply,’ Lynch said in a statement.
‘Police officers want to know: What are we still doing out here?’ he continued.
‘Why are our leaders sending us out to enforce laws they don’t believe in? And what are we supposed to tell New Yorkers who are watching us retreat while violence overwhelms their streets?’ Lynch added.
