The New York Police Department retreated after a six-hour standoff with a Black Lives Matter activist who reporter injured a female police officer after an angry mob gathered outside his apartment.
The brouhaha erupted after the NYPD went to an apartment building in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City.
The police were there to arrest BLM activist Derrick Ingram, who’s accused of causing hearing loss to a female cop after shouting directly into her ear through a bullhorn.
During their six-hour standoff, Ingram gleefully live-streamed the event on social media. That caused hordes of protesters to gather outside his building.
That’s when NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea ordered the officers to leave without arresting the suspect.
Police officers said the retreat is another example of how law enforcement have been blocked from doing their jobs in order to avoid being called racist.
“Another example of mob rules,” an NYPD insider told the New York Post.
Another NYPD insider said surrendering to the mob will have devastating consequences since criminals now feel free to resist arrest.
“Today’s action encourages resisting arrest,” a source said. “That is not good for anyone: Cops, civilians, and the people being arrested.”
The Left’s demonization of police through the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement has ignited an unprecedented crime wave across New York City and other Democrat-controlled cities.
Dr. Carol Swain is an attorney and a retired political science professor who was tenured at Vanderbilt and Princeton University.
Swain says Black Lives Matter is not a legitimate civil-rights movement but a puppet coalition being manipulated by the Democrat Party to win the presidency and to usher in a Marxist revolution.
“It’s part of the cultural Marxist agenda against America,” Swain told Fox News host Mark Levin. “[Democrats] are using black people to advance a radical agenda that will be destructive to our nation, that will hurt all of us. And it’s hurting us right now.”
Dr. Swain said the Democrats and their left-wing media lapdogs have an agenda: Divide and conquer. And that’s why they’re scapegoating the police: To ignite a race war.
Swain said she’s living proof that “systemic racism” is a left-wing canard being used to manipulate black voters into destroying the United States and seizing control of the White House.
Swain grew up in poverty in the rural South as one of 12 children. She got married at age 16 and pregnant at 17 and eventually had three children. After her divorce, she put herself through community college and Yale Law School.
“I am an American success story,” she said.

Dr. Swain said the Democratic Party is pushing the false narrative of “systemic racism” and fomenting the lie that all black people live in fear of the police.
“This false narrative is being pushed this year because of the election,” she said. The reason why Swain knows this is because she was a Democrat until recently.
“I was a Democrat until 2009, so I always knew the Democratic Party was problematic,” Swain said. “So we’re all suffering as a result of this [left-wing] political agenda. It will not bring us closer together.”
