Police Declare “Wartime” in Internal Memo — “We Will Act Accordingly” After Two Officers Are Shot


NEW YORK — After two NYPD were assassinated on Saturday, a startling internal memo was widely distributed to police in New York from the Police Benevolent Assocation.

At first the internal memo seems like instructions for basic safety.

First it requires that officers begin traveling in packs of two:

“At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity…”

It then requires that officers hereafter refrain from arresting any Americans unless it is absolutely necessary.

This second step might be taken for a number of reasons.

One reason might be because citizens are able to make fake 911 calls in order to get police to show up at a designated location, only to ambush the police once they arrive.

By restricting arrests only to those that are absolutely necessary, police might avoid such traps.

At the same time, it could mean that less Americans will be harassed, extorted, coerced, or thrown in a cage for victimless “crimes” (for example, for carrying marijuana). It could also mean that less Americans will be “stopped and frisked” and racially profiled.

This part of the memo — calling for no more unnecessary enforcement — is sure to be cheerfully welcomed by Americans. After all, it was Eric Garner who said “Please, just leave me alone.”

That’s all most Americans are asking for: to live in peace without government employees initiating violence upon them.

But it’s the last portion of the memo that has people concerned.

The reason is that it declares that the NYPD is now a “Wartime” department, and that “we will act accordingly.”

The memo does not elaborate on exactly what actions the NYPD intends to perform in order to be a “Wartime” department on the streets of America.

During the Egyptian revolution a couple of years ago, Egyptian protesters burned down police stations after police killed an innocent street vendor for selling things without paying taxes.

In response, the police began going out secretly, in plainclothes, and staging fake terror attacks and random murders throughout the cities.

They did this partly as retaliation against the Egyptian citizens, but it was mainly a ploy, as if to say “See? What would you do without us? You need us!”

Some suspect that a false flag terror attack might be staged by the NYPD to stoke fear, maintain power, and to get naive citizens begging for their help. Rumors have also circulated that portions of the story about the two officers who were killed were made up or staged.

But we aren’t in a position to speculate on such matters.

The fact is, the memo never specifies which actions will be taken.

The memo was released after Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot two NYPD officers in a planned assassination. He did it, he said, to avenge the police slayings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.


Ismaaiyl reportedly ran into a subway and shot himself to death after killing the officers, according to reports.

The two officers who were killed have been identified as Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.

It is believed that they never even saw Ismaaiyl coming before he shot them while they were sitting in their patrol car.



Police have reacted by saying that the Mayor of New York “has blood on his hands” and that Americans are using peaceful protests as a cover for insurrection.

How the NYPD plans to “act accordingly” having now declared itself a “Wartime” department remains a mystery, which is why citizens will be aware of their surroundings and prepared for anything in the weeks ahead.

The internal memo is reproduced in its entirety below:

“FROM NYC PBA: Starting IMMEDIATELY- At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be. IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest. These are precautions that were taken in the 1970’s when Police Officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis. The mayors hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a “wartime” police department. We will act accordingly.”
