An anti-cop message was scrawled on a Ridgewood subway station Tuesday and Council Member Bob Holden has taken exception to it.

The message, which was scribbled in black pen at the entrance to the Forest Avenue station, read: “Boohoohoo Cop FUNeral LOL.”

The vandal targeted the station about 10 days after two cops were gunned down in Harlem responding to a domestic disturbance call. One of the officers, P.O. Wilbert Mora, is being buried today, with the other, P.O. Jason Rivera, buried last week.

“Anti-police rhetoric is not harmless,” Holden tweeted. “We see the consequences: open season on our police. Even some of our elected officials have spewed anti-cop language and it encourages violent crime. There’s no place in the city for harmful language like this.”

Holden described the incident as” reprehensible” and said the people who do this type of graffiti are either career criminals or are just mindless.

“Many of them haven’t dealt in the real world and don’t know what New York City was like in the ’70s and ’80s when the city was a much more dangerous place,” Holden said. He described the graffiti as “moronic” and said it is akin to hate speech.

Holden said he is hopeful that the NYPD nabs the person responsible, noting that there is likely to be video footage.

I am surprised there is no video footage of the suspect. The hate message should of been blurred in this article.

Probably someone from the Jan 6 riots

They were beating police with “Blue Lives Matter” flags and a lot of them were from NY/NJ

James secured a 625-count indictment charging five men for participating in the gun smuggling ring, which involved selling dozens of ghost guns, assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
