Sixth NYPD Suicide While de Blasio Continues to Campaign

<> on March 20, 2017 in New York City.

While New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to campaign for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination – which he has virtually no chance of winning – a sixth NYPD officer has committed suicide in what appears to be an epidemic. 

A 35-year-old police officer took his own life early Tuesday morning, marking the eighth NYPD suicide this year and the sixth since June,” according to WCBS. “The seven-year veteran of the force was off-duty when he shot himself in the head in his Yonkers home at 3:30 a.m. “Reports indicate the officer left a note and his fiancee was home at the time.”

The NYPD posted about the incident on its Twitter account.

“The NYPD suffered another tragedy today with the loss of another officer to suicide. To those who may be facing struggles – Help is always available, you are not alone,” the department said.

“This most recent officer’s death follows the June 5 suicide of Deputy Chief Steven Silks, the June 6 death of Det. Joseph Calabrese, the June 14 death of 29-year-old Officer Michael Caddy at the 121st Precinct in Staten Island, the June 27 death of Officer Kevin Preiss at his Long Island home and the July 27 death of Sergeant Terrance McAvoy at his Staten Island home,” according to NBC4.

Meanwhile, de Blasio continues his doomed presidential campaign.

Police organizations have noted his absence. As reported by The Rundown, the New York City Sergeant’s Benevolent  Association roasted de Blasio in a viral Tweet.

“MISSING PERSON ALERT- if seen please return to NYC, it’s the city that had a blackout, has homeless all over the streets, people being killed by bicycles, broken down public housing,& a transit system that’s a mess. Subject is on presidential campaign with plans to destroy a nation,” the SBA said.
