This past Wednesday night, Oct 12th, a troubled wanna-be cop armed with a shotgun proved that the cops are right, – and Mayor Walsh and his pet Garden Gnome are wrong!
Out-gunned, they were damn near killed in cold blood!
Officers Richard Cintolo, (27 years) and Matt Morris, (12 years) responded to a ‘domestic disturbance’ call late Wednesday night, – where they encountered wanna-be cop Kirk Figueroa – dressed in his armored vest and brandishing a tactical shotgun.
Outgunned, both cops were nearly killed. It will be a miracle if either ever returns to policing the streets….
Mayor Walsh and Commissioner Evans OWN this one.
They have to be aware of the WAR ON COPS being conducted by BOTH Muslims and Black Lives Matter followers.
But Mayor Walsh is a mini-me version of New York’s Bill De Blasio – he thinks police are the problem, – and he wants to move toward ‘soft policing’ where police present a ‘more approachable, less threatening face’ to the public.
To a public in some communities who have long ago surrendered to the street gangs, – gangs who viciously enforce their ‘No Snitching’ rule, – and who will shoot cops if they get a chance.
Cops need bullet-proof vests, and the option to carry more effective weapons, – suited for fire-fights in urban settings.
Boston’s cops need a real Commissioner, – not a marathon-running political yes-man of a garden gnome – who will always say “Yes Sir, – three bags full Sir!” to the mayor.
Walsh needs to lose his ooey-gooey libturd views on police work!
He need to go look closely at the wounds suffered by Officers Cintolo and Morris. He needs to pull back their bandages and SEE what our cops face. No guts Marty?
Did Tom Menino make running the city look like an easy gig?
LAST AUGUST your cops asked for vests and long guns….WHY did you say “No”?
GET A FUCKING GRIP MARTY!
Your city and your cops are under attack from drug gangs, – from MS-13, – from Muslims, – from Black Lives Matter,…and you want to pussy-foot around with ‘soft policing’?
Let’s START with building Trump’s WALL!
Why in hell did you endorse Hillary? WHAT has she EVER done – for ANY city?
Let’s bring back the Death Penalty – certainly for shooting cops, court workers, corrections officers, and EMTs….
STOP being a ‘Sanctuary City’ – and use the money saved to post HUGE rewards for tips that lead to captures and convictions.
FIND a REAL COP and ease Evans into retirement. The current ‘image’ is a friggin’ JOKE!
START doing unannounced ride-alongs with your cops. LEARN what they face, – learn some respect, – and just ~ maybe ~ earn their trust.
CATER to the good guys for once, – not the lawbreakers!
UPDATE: Saturday, 15 Oct 2016 Boston’s Channel 5 has uncovered at least 5 aliases used by Figueroa – including Muhummed Isa Al Mahdi, – and a Facebook posting that describes his ‘rebirth as a child of Islam‘….
Draw your own conclusions,…but he clearly wasn’t one of Obama’s ‘peaceful Muslims’….
