NYPD commissioner wants 450 more cops to fight ISIS in the city

New York City police chief Bill Bratton has requested authorization to hire 450 more police officers in order to combat terrorism from the Islamic State.

We need to be very concerned about terrorism … The significantly increased threat from ISIS using social media to recruit people not only to go to Syria to fight, but encouraging people … to attack police, to attack government officials, to basically brainwash them under their screwed-up ideology. That threat has expanded significantly in the now 16 months I’ve been police commissioner.

    Presumably the total number of muslim terrorists in ISIS is 900. Hiring 450 of them as cops will certainly anger the unwanted 450 and destroy their overall solidarity.

    Nah Mao Tse Blasio will never go for it. He wants to make the police dept smaller so that they can do the work of social workers and care givers. Anyway, unless all 450 are black there will be rioting.

    I support my police commissioner.

      …yes but does the di Blasio administration oppose Islamic terrorism, or is the good mayor on the terrorists’ side?

    They are not terrorists. They are soldiers of a foreign power conducting military operations on American soil … which is why the administration is so slow in acknowledging the existence of the Islamic State as the sovereign entity it is – they can pretend that “terrorists” are simply criminals and IS combatants. In reality they are enemy combatants on American soil and the military should be dealing with them. The claim that “the US will never be at war with Islam” is erroneous – Islam had been in an openly declared war against us as kuffar since the nation was founded and that war is declared against us as perpetual. And that’s probably the sticking point for the politicians … they don’t know what to do with an eternal, everlasting, perpetual war that has been declared against us. They have no idea of how to make it end, so they just pretend its not there at all.

      typo – “… and not IS combatants …”
