Copycat Attacks on NY Police Officers by Mobs with Buckets of Water

Earlier this week, New York police officers were attacked by a lawless mob with buckets of water.

The incident was caught on video as the officers were making an arrest.

The New York Post reports:

Stunning videos posted online Monday show uniformed NYPD cops getting drenched with buckets of water by brazen young men in Harlem and Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA) issued a statement:

Others condemned the attacks on Twitter.

Disturbingly, the initial attacks spurred copycat incidents.

President Trump denounced the attacks and called on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to “act immediately.”

Since the attacks, several arrests were made.

The NYPD has busted three men, including a reputed Crips gang member on probation, in connection with the caught-on-video water-dousing of cops in Harlem and Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told The Post on Wednesday.

Today its water but the next potential attacks against police officers could be much more serious.
