Not sure he was gouging him in the eyes as much as trying to remove the mask but...

Blue lives matter! Blue lives matter! Oh wait... [Sarcasm Off] An "officer" attacking other officers - bet he has serveral of those ridiculous blue bar flags too. Sickening.

Is it really a surprise that Blue Lives Matter turned out to be something they only say to liberals, and that they don't really believe it themselves?

It's just like with abortion: No abortion, except when they need an abortions', that's different.
It's just like with Merrick Garland: No to appointing a Supreme Court justice in an election year, but when they're in control, it's okay to appoint a Supreme Court justice in an election year.

This is just the way these people are: They only hold their enemies to high standards.

Blue Lives Matter has been replaced with "shoot them with their own guns".

The fascists never think the other fascists will turn on them.

Pence certainly didn't take the job of Vice President thinking the very people who elected him would try to execute him for being a traitor.

Virtually everything in all the posts above tell us one thing; Centrists, Liberals, Radicals need to get on the same team. How do you think FDR did it?

Nowadays, a chicken in every pot is the same thing as Communism.

Topic isn't FDR the topic is the eye gouging psychopath who apparently was a cop.

I hope the irony isn't lost on him that he's blessed that we do not live in a eye for an eye culture.

Agreed. But it goes back to the fact too many cops are just legitimized thugs, wannabe tyrants, etc.

Police Brutality does not end when a violent Cop retires. He finds different ways to direct his psychopathology.

I will bet my Audi TT against a schit-stained MAGA hat, that this cop spent his career gleefully celebrating his position of limitless opportunities to inflict pain on others.

How many Police Brutality complaints were filed on him? How many Police Brutality events were condoned/concealed, tolerated, and encouraged by him in his LEO leadership capacity.

Conviction should include complete loss of retirement benefits as a necessary part of his sentencing.

Face it, many Blue Lives Batter.

Tough guy. Put him in a holding cell on Rikers and let's see how tough he really is. At his sentancing, send him to Malone to do time there, only 350 miles from home, and as close to wilderness as most in NY State can get...

#9 That was a Herbert Hoover campaign line. But I see the point you are trying to make.

Local coverage from NYC...

'Pure Rage': Ex-NYPD officer, NYC Republican latest arrests in US Capitol riot

...A former NYPD officer and a prominent Queens Republican are the latest arrests in our area connected to the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

When he served, Thomas Webster provided security at both City Hall and Gracie Mansion. But that background in securing government buildings and officials did not stop him from summoning "pure rage" to "unleash violence" on a Capitol police officer using a metal flagpole, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

Webster, 54, a former Marine, surrendered to the FBI office in New Windsor to face six charges including attacking a federal officer.

"(Expletive) piece of (expletive)," he yelled as he attacked the officer. "Commie mother (expletive)."...

Prosecutors sought to have Webster held without bail, noting he was caught on video assaulting a current Capitol police officer with an aluminum pole that once flew a Marine Corps flag.

"These videos shock the conscience," assistant US Attorney Benjamin Gianforti said. "We see the defendant, clear as day, attacking a police officer, first with an aluminum pole and then with his bare hands, ripping the officer's protective gear off."

Gianforti said Webster wore a bullet proof vest during the attack and told agents he brought a gun with him to Washington, indicating he was prepared for armed violence.

"We see what I would describe as a look of pure rage," he said. "His teeth are gritted. This is a man who was about to unleash violence on that poor police officer."...

The judge rejected that argument, holding Webster without bail.

"The conduct on the video does shock the conscience," said Magistrate Judge Andrew Krause, adding that part of the reason was because of Webster's prior service in law enforcement and military. "It makes it particularly troubling and perplexing to weigh that impressive resume of public service against what we see in this video. What we see in this video is a person who flat out attacks a law enforcement officer, first verbally and then with a metal pole that he swings repeatedly."...

More like 4/19.

My wife's response to the headline was, "Of course he beat the man on the ground. He was NYPD, that's what they train for."
