President Trump should consider sending federal personnel to prevent more riots in the city. This is according to the head of a New York City police union.

New York Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins went on “The Ingraham Angle” recently. He said that NYPD is “losing the city of New York” while there. “We have no leadership in the city of New York right now, from City Hall to the brass of the NYPD,” he then added.

“The men and women are being pelted with rocks, bricks, cars [are] lit on fire. And this is continuous. We have a curfew that's been implemented tonight at eight o'clock and everyone is still out rioting in the streets in New York,” Mullins added.

“I am asking the president to please, please immediately send federal personnel to New York City and monitor what is going on,” he continued. “If Governor Cuomo does not implement the National Guard immediately, then the federal government is going to have to step in.”

Actions Taken

On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that an 8 p.m. curfew will be extended. The extension will last through the end of the week. This comes after more destruction and “vicious attacks on police officers.”

“Our hands are being tied,” the Police Union head said. “The rank and file members of all ranks have sent me numerous emails, letters, text messages, photos of New York City … being destroyed. We have no leadership coming from City Hall. We are being told to stand down,” he also mentioned.

According to Mullins, the commissioner and chiefs of the NYPD are too afraid to let their officers do their job.

“Mayor de Blasio is not allowing the NYPD to do their job,” Mullins said. “The commissioner, the chiefs of the NYPD are too afraid to let the men and women keep control of the city. History has shown that you must enforce the laws,” he then added.
