Many of us remember 9/11 as though it was yesterday. Every year we watch the New Years’ Eve Ball drop in Time Square, under heavy police protection, and yet the NYC mayor & city council want to slash funding for the NYPD.

NYC Council Leadership Backs Proposal to Cut $1 Billion From NYPD Budget
New York City leadership released its first tangible budget cut proposal for the NYPD late Friday, announcing their intention to reduce the budget by $1 billion.
“Demonstrators have been calling for community leaders and politicians to defund and reallocate funding from police departments following the death of George Floyd. Many New York City leaders, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, have already vocalized support of reducing the city’s already stressed budget due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
Similar to other progressive cities, the police are under attack from all angles and demonized by leftists who are attempting to assign racism to their local officers. This messaging from the top-down has created a swell of SJW riots etc.
What many in the anti-police movements are underestimating is the cohesion and fortitude of officers, the strength of their unions, and the fight in them to not be treated with disrespect. So in light of the calls from the mayor & city council to restructure the security for NYC, a story just broke of the possibility of a majority of the NYPD not working this Fourth Of July. Kind an Independence day from being safe in New York.

From the New York Post
“A labor strike is brewing in the NYPD.”
“A pair of fliers making their rounds among NYPD officers are encouraging them to call out sick July 4th — as retribution for police reform and a perceived anti-cop climate following the outrage over high-profile police killings of unarmed black men across the country, multiple cops told The Post.”
“One message calls for the strike to kick off at 3 p.m. July 4.”
“NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops,” the message, which is being passed among cops via text, according to sources.”
“PBA President Patrick Lynch said the “blue flu” has been a joke for generations, but “the situation we are in right now is no joke” and NYC cops “have reached the breaking point.”
“Over the past few weeks, we have been attacked in the streets, demonized in the media and denigrated by practically every politician in this city,” Lynch said.”
“Now we are facing the possibility of being arrested any time we go out to do our job.”
On Twitter, there is a hashtag, #BlueFlu supporting a police sick day, a national day to show cities would it would be like without police services.
Sometimes it takes extreme measures to correct wrongs and set things right. An NYPD strike or sick-out on July 4th would confirm that the natural man is evil, and without police, would lead to anarchy. This would be painful to watch, but if needed, I support The Blue.
