NYPD warns officers MS-13 gang bangers are plotting attacks on them at their homes

By Jon Dougherty

As Democrats and establishment Republicans work to block POTUS Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border, the New York City Police Department has issued a warning to its officers that MS-13 gang members are plotting to assassinate them at their homes.

In particular, gang members seeking to gain ‘street cred’ may look to target NYPD officers in Long Island.

NYPD officials say the department’s intelligence division received information regarding the planned attacks by members of the gang which has its roots in Central America and many of whose members are in the U.S. illegally, according to WCBS-TV.

A Tuesday memo revealed that NYPD officials from the department’s 105th Precinct warned its officers that the department received “threats against [members of service]” who live in the Brentwood and Central Islip area of Islip, as well as in Patchogue.

“Intel has been obtained that members of MS13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area, as well as possibly Patchogue in order to gain street credibility,” the memo read, according to the New York Post. “These members are conducting reconnaissance of [member of service] private residences.”

Sgt. Jessica McRorie told Fox News that an officer safety alert was sent to police “out of an abundance of caution” because of “an unverified threat by MS13 targeting law enforcement officers.”

“Whenever a law enforcement officer is being threatened, especially by an organization like MS-13 which we already know is uber-violent and has killed numerous people throughout the country if not throughout the world, this has to be taken serious,” said former FBI Agent Manny Gomez in an interview with WCBS.



“They are going above and beyond what any other gang does, and the scary part is that we already know that they legitimately carry out their threats and they are extremely violent,” Gomez added.

U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers have routinely arrested MS-13 gang bangers attempting to cross into the U.S. illegally.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection noted in December that agents had arrested a gang member who has been deported before.

In January, Border Patrol agents arrested two MS-13 members near Yuma, Arizona, and another one in Tucson the previous month. In November, a gang member was caught traveling with one of the migrant caravans.

Democrats and some Republicans passed legislation in the House to block the president’s emergency declaration. Some Republicans are expected to join all Democrats in the Senate to sign onto the bill, though it’s not certain it will pass the upper chamber.

The president, meanwhile, has said he would issue his first veto if the bill reaches his desk.

    How about that indispensable vibrant diversity? These poor downtrodden comrades of the collective are just doing the jobs that Americans are too cool to do.
    Forward! To each according to his need, workers of the world unite!

  2. If MS-13 gangs start killing Democrat politicians in their homes, only then will you see overwhelming support for Trump’s border wall.

  3. Hey NYPD what happened to the Weiner Computer? If you had released it MS-13 would have less friends in congress..

Have something to say?
