NYPD cop in hot water over ‘Black Lives Matter’ post

NYPD cop in hot water over ‘Black Lives Matter’ post news 1x1.trans

Police Officer Gwendolyn Bishop, a Brooklyn police officer, is in hot water with the NYPD after responding with #BlackLivesMatter to a post on the department’s Twitter feed.

According to the New York Daily News, Bishop responded to a post from February 2016 about a gun arrest using her own personal Twitter account, writing, “Sad day for the 76th Pct. #Blacklivesmatter.”

The reply was made under the account @ducklipzanddimplzz, which has since been taken down. According to her attorney, John Tynan, she was not in violation of department rules, since she was not using the department Twitter account but was responding through her personal account as any other person on Twitter is allowed to do. What’s more, Tynan said, her Twitter account did not identify her as a cop.

Bishop has also claimed that she did not mean to reply with #Blacklivesmatter but with #Bluelivesmatter and that her phone auto-corrected her post. Tynan noted that she had posted the comment three times and that two of them used the #bluelivesmatter hashtag.

Bishop said that she was not directly responding to the gun arrest in her post.

“I vaguely remember the tweets,” she told Commissioner David Weisel. “If I had to guess, there were a lot of changes in my precinct about shifts being switched, but it had nothing to do about this gun arrest.”

If Bishop is found to be in violation of department rules, she could lose up to 30 vacation days and could be put on probation for up to a year.

They're stumped.. what can they say. "black lives don't matter"? No, they can't. say that. That would be too negative and not in line with what they should believe. Black Lives Matter all the time. Its just sinful that we have to be put into a position to have to REMIND them of something they should already know and feel

What is wrong with saying that our lives matter? There's a problem with those that feel like saying this is a problem when we had to create this slogan because we get gunned down like wild animals.

These clowns keep trying to equate black lives matter as being anti police. There's nothing wrong with wanting justice for someone unjustly killed by police. She shouldn't be chastised if she did intend to put BLM. Its possible to hold both positions that both black & blue lives matter. Ted Koppel is correct in his assessment that Hannity & Fox news are dangerous to America in that they perpetuate these false narratives that if you're for justice for blacks unjustly murdered by police that somehow you're anti-police. They also foster the false narrative that if black lives matter, what about "black on black" crime??? Well let's look at this so called "black on black" crime, statistically whites kill almost the same amount of whites. Why is this considered simply as crime & not "white on white" crime?? Fact of the matter is that people kill in the communities in which they live. The difference between a black killing another black person or a cop clearly murdering someone on video where the entire world sees, is time & again there is no justice for the victim whereas if a black person kills someone, they will go to prison case closed.
