On Wednesday, a day after the video was released, lawmakers announced a new bill that would see offenders get possible jail time.
Several assembly members gathered for a press conference to address the multiple incidents and announce the introduction of legislation that would 'make menacing a law enforcement officer punishable as a felony offense'.
'The bottom line is this: Our men and women in blue put their lives on the line each and every day to protect the people of this city, and we owe it to them that they are protected while doing their job,' Reilly said in a Facebook post.
The lawmakers expressed their concern over the buckets of water turning into buckets of acid, or possibly gasoline.
Last week, the head of the NYPD sergeants' union demanded that Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill step down after the fourth video showing youth throwing water on police officers emerged.
The Sergeants Benevolent Association made their assertion while sharing a video that showed small children and teens dousing two officers with buckets of water and water guns.

'DEFEND YOURSELF before YOU get seriously injured or KILLED,' the Thursday post from the SBA stated. 'These buckets can contain ACID, BLEACH or other CHEMICALS. Obtain exposure numbers. O'KNEEL MUST GO, take the CLOWNS with you!'
'DEFEND YOURSELF before YOU get seriously injured or KILLED,' the July 25 post from the SBA stated.
'These buckets can contain ACID, BLEACH or other CHEMICALS. Obtain exposure numbers. O'KNEEL MUST GO, take the CLOWNS with you!'
Police officers in the video could be seen holding up their hands while getting blasted with water, but laughing - suggesting that they weren't as triggered by the kid's actions.
It is unknown where exactly the video was filmed but it was initially shared by someone with the Instagram handle @Harlem4real.
That was the fourth - and least worrying - video of the incidents that shows law enforcement getting drenched.
It came after the NYPD announced that it may be considering charges for the husband of a city Department of Correction captain, who advocated for cops to be killed instead of having water thrown on them.
Rashid Stanley, a Transit inspector, took to his joint Facebook page to condemn reports that folks were upset that cops were getting doused with water.
'How easily people forget. Y'all upset about some pigs getting water thrown on them,' Stanley wrote on the page, according to the New York Daily News.
'All the innocent black men and women killed at the hands of these pigs. Y'all forgot 'Eric Gardner' (sic) killer just got off with murder, on camera! It’s time we shoot back!!! Cop killers stand up!!!!'
Police sources say that the man could be charged for the post, and he could be charged with making terroristic threats.
Three men who were detained for throwing water on officers have since been released, only receiving misdemeanor charges.
Isaiah Scott and Chad Bowden, 23 and 28, were charged with criminal mischief and harassment for their stunt in Harlem that left a police officer's cellphone destroyed, the New York Post reports.
Courtney Thompson, the man said to be a Crips gang member, posted $3,500 bail to get out of jail for charges related to his incident on July 20.
A third clip surfaced online last Wednesday afternoon and shows crowds jeering at what appears to be two on-duty female officers in uniform standing on a street corner.

'NYPD Cops are in DANGER! Another video of water buckets being tossed. O'Neill needs to go before we get another cop killed!' the SBA said, slamming NYPD Commissioner O'Neill for failing to prevent such attacks on cops.
