In a strange era in American history when Democrat-led initiatives in public policy to demonize police and defund police departments are promoted on every platform, it is interesting to see an assault against an officer at a routine traffic stop and try to figure out what happened.
“The man in that video was arrested after this altercation and after driving off. He had been pursued after throwing bleach on an officer. The officer did receive medical treatment for burns on his face and in his eyes. Lionel Virgile is the man seen in the video; when he was arrested, it was discovered he had three more containers of bleach. The Eastern District will be taking over, and he is charged with federal crimes,” Detetrictive Francias Salmon of the New York Police Department told me about the text of the traffic stop.
TWITTER BLUE CHECK MARKS AND LEFTIST MEDIA ARE WRONG
Not only is it noticeable that the left mocked the officer as he got bleach thrown in his face, let’s recall when the left was concerned about Jessie Smollet pretending that bleach had been thrown on him and the left’s outrage about it.
SETTING THE STORY
This was national news for months.
“There’s bleach on me. They poured bleach on me,” Jussie Smollett told police the night of the alleged attack in Chicago. “Do you want to take it off or anything?” Chicago police officer asks Jussie Smollett about the rope around his neck. https://t.co/4mmKwNVaBb pic.twitter.com/WfsuKc3PrW

WHEN IT HAPPENS TO A POLICE OFFICER, THE LEFT MOCKS HIM
“Today, a vehicle stop for running a red light proved once again that no traffic enforcement is “routine.” When approached, the driver doused a cop with a chemical before fleeing, tossing a Molotov cocktail — and finally being arrested. Fortunately, our officers weren’t injured,” New York Police Department reported.
The definition of Molotov Cocktail is what the left is focused on, having been trained as radicals to dismantle the speech of their enemies. A Molotov Cocktail is generally known as: “a crude incendiary device typically consisting of a bottle filled with flammable liquid and with a means of ignition. The production of similar grenades was organized by Vyacheslav Molotov during World War II.”
In The video shows a black man who has been pulled over, who says he does not have his driver’s license or other documents about insurance when asked.
The officer asks the motorist to roll down all of his windows because they are covered up. The motorist then leans down and opens his door a little as he is reaching down and opens the doors aggressively, splashing something into the officer’s face.
The left reports that it was ice water, hundreds of comments are logged mocking the police officer.
This morning, NYPD cops were attacked with Molotov cocktails during a car stop.

The leftist media, who never have to face anything near as harrowing as what police officers do, were eager to mock the alarm, using their grassroots marketing platforms to set a narrative that the police were overreacting.

Ford Fisher who covers local DC events and feeds information to numerous Lefitst Platforms was totally wrong and spreading gossip.

Just a phone call to get the suspect’s name and then a simple google search, and I uncovered a story ABC News, who reported on the arrest and said:
“Brooklyn (WABC) — There are new details after a man threw a Molotov cocktail at police in a scary encounter for NYPD officers Saturday.
Lionel Virgile of Bridgeport, Connecticut, faces a federal charge of arson with an injury that carries a 7-to-40-year prison sentence.
Virgile is in federal custody and will appear virtually Monday before a federal judge sitting in Downtown Brooklyn.
Investigators are still trying to determine if he had been intentionally targeting police.
Video from the police body camera around 8 a.m. Saturday showed police trying to stop the 44-year-old suspect from running a red light.
Police say he threw a bleach substance at the officer then took off.
The officers chased the car until it crashed into another vehicle on Snyder Ave in Brooklyn.”
Virgile was transferred to federal custody late Saturday and will appear in a virtual hearing on Monday before a judge in Brooklyn federal court, authorities said.

Information on an attorney for Virgile wasn’t available Sunday.
So once again, the left is wrong and putting out false information on their Grassroots Marketing Platforms.
