Anyone who has read my True Detective Stories know I am no special pleader for police officers. That said, when an actual injustice is levied upon officers trying to do their job, I like to be one of the first people to call out the despicable government drones. In this case, it would be cop-hating NYC Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot.
New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot blew off the NYPD’s desperate plea for more masks as coronavirus cases were on the rise.
NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan requested 500,000 surgical masks for his officers in late March. Barbot, claiming she needed the masks for others, told him, “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops.”
Now if I worked for the NYPD, I would put Barbot’s residence on my “Do Not Respond” list.
Barbot said that she could only provide the police department with 50,000 masks, but as New York City quickly became a hot zone, it became clear that was not going to be enough. By the end of the first week in April, nearly 20% of the police department was out sick with coronavirus symptoms.
Monahan, likely after cursing out this bitch, contacted the White House and asked for help. The evil President Trump denied their plea because he’s a Russian stooge.
Nah, the Trump administration flooded the NYPD with protective gear in a mere sixteen hours after the request was made. I mean, you all heard about that on the evening news, right? Right??
