Cops anonymously told the New York Post that they aren’t making arrests for minor crimes because they fear for their safety following the murders of two NYPD officers.
“I’m not writing any summonses. Do you think I’m going to stand there so someone can shoot me or hit me in the head with an ax?” a cop, who was granted anonymity by the Post, said. “I’m concerned about my safety. I want to go to home to my wife and kids.”
