2 More NYPD Cops Shot

Described as a wild west shoot out, two more NYPD cops were shot yesterday in the Bronx.
In another bloody attack on New York’s Finest, two cops were shot by robbers in The Bronx on Monday night — and a massive manhunt was under way for at least one suspect early Tuesday.

Plainclothes officers Andrew Dossi and Aliro Pellarano had just finished their shift but came back on to respond to a grocery store robbery at 363 E. 180th St. when they came upon two suspects at 184th Street, authorities said.

One of them ducked into a Chinese restaurant on Tiebout Avenue at about 10:35 p.m. while the other stayed outside, according to NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton.

“As two of the officers approached the male on the street, the other suspect inside of the store came out and fired upon the officers,” Bratton said. “The officers returned fire.”

The suspects then fled on foot while exchanging gunfire with cops at 184th Street and Tiebout Avenue.
 
“We are currently investigating if the suspect who fired upon the officers was also involved in the prior robbery,” Bratton said.
The Police Commissioner and Hiz Honor checked in on  the wounded officers. One of which wasn't all that pleased with the Mayor's presence.
One of the cops wounded in a wild Bronx shootout didn't appreciate a hospital sympathy visit from Mayor Bill de Blasio, the wounded officer’s dad told The Post on Tuesday
.
The mayor accompanied NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton to St. Barnabas Hospital overnight to see wounded plainclothes officers Andrew Dossi, 30, and Aliro Pellarano, 38.

“He wasn't too happy about the mayor’s visit,” Dossi’s dad, Joe, told The Post at the family’s home in Rockland County.
It's too late. No NYPD cop with any self respect trusts this POS in Gracie Mansion. De Blasio is just going through the motions.

And the Commissioner knows it too. The situation is continuing to deteriorate and Bratton is trying to stem the flow of bad karma.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton has hastily called a meeting with police union leaders for Wednesday to address deteriorating relations between rank-and-file officers and his boss at City Hall, Mayor Bill de Blasio, sources told The Post.

Gotham’s top cop wants to sit down with the union honchos at 1 Police Plaza in Manhattan, union sources said. De Blasio will not be there.

Officers have been in open revolt against de Blasio over his perceived anti-cop sentiment, including when he said he feared that his half-black son could face abuse from racist police officers.

“We have concerns we have to address with the police commissioner,” a union source said.

“[Bratton] understands. He’s been a police officer for 44 years. He knows what we’re talking about. We have to get these concerns out. He has to communicate our concerns with the mayor, and the mayor has to understand our concerns. The mayor’s words and actions have meaning.”

Union leaders met with de Blasio last week, but the sit-down apparently did little to quell hostility.
Work has virtually come to a standstill. The City is losing millions in ticket revenue and the streets will soon become no man's land if this continues.

Aggressive police work is what brought NYC the reputation of being one of the safest big cities in the nation. I live in a Central NY city and our murder rate per 100,000 (14.6) is almost four times higher than NYC (4.0).

De Blasio is throwing it all away.

I agree and would add that de Blasio is a complete idiot to boot.
