MSNBC Chris Hayes Spreads Fake News That NYPD Undercover Arrest Was A “Kidnapping”

MSNBC Chris Hayes Spreads Fake News That NYPD Undercover Arrest Was A “Kidnapping”

Fresh off Russia collusion hoax, Hayes and Democrats like Jerry Nadler stoke anger at police — Reality is the “kidnapping” was an arrest of a woman wanted for multiple crimes carried out by undercover NYPD officers accompanied by uniformed officers.

Journalist Michelle Lhooq claimed officials put a “trans femme protestor” in “an unmarked van” in New York City. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes labeled it “a kidnapping.” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called it “terrifying.”

The NYPD explained the “Warrant Squad uses unmarked vehicles to effectively locate wanted suspects.” An NBC reporter even corrected Hayes.

Ah, the dangers of social media. A person with millions of followers can tweet out fake news and it takes off like wildfire.

NYPD Response

Nitpick about the response! I don’t see protestors throwing anything at the officers.

I do not see any corrections on Hayes’ or Nadler’s timeline.

The Democrats and other activists claim the same thing happens in Portland, OR. Law enforcement officials explained:

Federal Protective Service (FPS) Deputy Director of Operations Richard Cline noted that the uniforms that the officers are wearing have only a name linked to their badge number. The reason that they are protecting the officer’s identities is because “about 38 of our officers that are out there have been doxxed and their personal information has been put online,” he explained.

Mark Morgan, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said that his agents that are being deployed have a “unique identifier” on them because agents are being doxxed, which he said jeopardizes the lives of the agents’ families because the rioters are “putting out their home information and they’re suggesting that individuals go to their homes.”

“So, yes, I as the acting commissioner have authorized and supported removing their names from their uniform,” Morgan said. “Instead, what we have though is a personal identifier, so we can identify and we have each identifier associated with a specific name so we have all that information internally and we’ll share that with the appropriate entities when it’s necessary.”

Morgan added, “So, I hope that puts to rest the lies and false rumors about they’re not properly marked.”

These protestors want to get away with their crimes. The Constitution protects your natural right to peacefully assemble, not commit crimes.

Reporters have a responsibility not to spread fake news. You want President Donald Trump to stop calling you fake news? Then stop tweeting and reporting fake news.

Hayes has the IQ of a houseplant. Why give him time?

I was a cop for a few years. Like the job. You couldn’t pay me enough to do it now.

    I asked a cop I’m close to (He also grew up in this area and his parents met at my high school in the 1950s) if he would recommend becoming a police officer to a young man nowadays.

    He said in the past he would, but now absolutely not. He said he’d firmly tell them not to consider it.

    And that’s the unintentional consequence of the left’s/media’s recent demonization of the police. From now on you’re going to get a much larger percentage of applicants being the type who should not become police. Bad-ass types who don’t have any other alternatives for a fairly decent paying job with benefits.

Rather than correct this latest incident, the Joseph Goebbels media will double down and make even wilder accusations.

Criminals gonna crime.

No child or sleeping were involved

It’s a myth Jerry

The Dhimmi-crats are so utterly vile, as are their boot-licking, water-carrying, media prostitute-propagandist lackeys.

They don’t seem to have issues with cities and states using unmarked police cars in speed traps. They have been doing that for decades

Calling arrests kidnapping. Sounds like Sovereign Citizen rhetoric.

All this can be avoided: Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time… [Baretta}

The idea behind calling it kidnapping (aside from the perpetual stance of being offended) is to make it seem like Venezuela or some such dictatorship, where government thugs make people disappear.

To do that, they have to pretend the people being arrested are not really criminals, and they have to ignore the existence of due process.

I doubt they’re fooling anybody but thousands will start repeating the lies anyway.

    Welcome to VenezUSAela – where the news is propaganda, where the TRUTH is in short supply, and where some animals are MORE equal than others…

I work with some fascinating police officers. I am sincerely fond of almost all of them. If you conjure up an archetypal police officer image in your mind, it won’t match well with the actual reality. Here are some officers with whom I currently work or recently worked:

A woman who came to America from Vietnam when she was a little girl. She has been an officer for less than a year. She is in her forties. Until she became an officer last year, she was a pharmacist. She has a PhD.

A black officer from Belize who told me growing up he had to walk miles to school on muddy roads. Here he was a teacher before becoming an officer. He said he told his inner-city students they had no idea how lucky they were to be born in America. But, alas, he said they wouldn’t listen.

An Asian-looking sergeant whose last name ends in -berg. I asked him if he was adopted and raised by Jews. He said his last name was actually Norwegian. He said his father was a 6’2″ Norwegian and his mother a 4’9″ Thai. As he said, “I take after my mother.” His Thai cousin was Miss Thailand and then became Miss Universe.

A young Jewish man from New York. His partner was a young Muslim man from Morocco. One day they were talking to the sergeant I just mentioned about a seminar on terrorism they were set to attend in another state. They were so excited you’d think they were taking their first road trip in college during spring break. When I said to the young Jewish officer, “Jeez … your handwriting is so bad you should’ve been a doctor,” he laughed and replied, “My parents are both doctors.” When I asked him why he hadn’t become a doctor, he said, “Not enough action.”

Then there’s my buddy who wants to talk to me about the stock market all the time. He’s a Muslim from India. He’s a bit of a Barney Fife, but he’s one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.

I could go on and on. And Bruce Willis’ mother volunteers with us three days a week. Oh man, is she a character.

Some of these “information workers” (a term I’ll use for people like Chris Hayes who go straight through university into a career job which, like most of their lives, involves dealing and interacting with not much more than symbols on their computer screens) need to diversify! their life experience.

When I read some of the pieces by the young, arrogant writers at Vox, for example, (a “news” organization I like to say is news for dumb kids written by even dumber kids), I invariably shake my head at a bunch of young know-nothings who all basically have the same exact life experience … straight through university to (pompously) “explaining” the news to the less wise. The arrogance of a life of nothing but book learning.

These shallow yet exceedingly self-assured kids like Chris Hayes and the Vox juice-box bunch could do few things more valuable to gain a little perspective and insightful experience than to volunteer at the nearest police department.

There you’ll find a diversity of life experiences. You’ll find a group of people of diverse backgrounds who are, however, required to call each other “partner.” New officers just out of the academy are required to address me as “sir” and my female coworkers as “ma’am” for the first year. Such little, seemingly trivial things create a different atmosphere. I remember someone somewhere saying something to the effect that “Everything started going to hell when young people stopped addressing adults as ‘sir’ and ‘ma’am.” I now get it.

There Chris Hayes and his colleagues would see the daily insults, anger, and wild emotions with which the officers must calmly deal. They’d see the stress and exhaustion in the faces of the officers after difficult days. During the recent protests one officer I know had to work 12-hour shifts 17 days in a row. He looked completely sleep-deprived and exhausted. And at the time I remember reading some tweets on Twitter by people complaining about officers in videos seeming to lose their patience a little too quickly.

Chris and his know-it-all buddies would also see that any use of force (usually a bit of grappling with someone drunk or on drugs resisting arrest), no matter how seemingly insignificant, is documented and investigated.

Well, I’ve written too much. But the way police officers are slandered so nonchalantly these days infuriates me. After untold numbers of terrorist attacks, Chris and his buddies have lectured us that the terrorists do not represent all Muslims. We don’t need to be lectured. We already understand that. But why are the police not afforded this same understanding? At all.

Chris Hayes is Rachel Maddows kid sister, don’t cha know!

I wish they’d “kidnap” thousands more.

I don’t really have an issue with the NYPD executing a warrant, I just question why they’re expending all that energy of all those cops to arrest the guy-pretending-to-be-a-woman when [s]he is just going to be released in a few minutes anyway.

Criminals, including Democrats, know their own.

There are A LOT of people who believe the diarrhea coming out of these hacks’ mouths. Pelosi, for example.

We’re fighting not only the left’s ‘big lies’, but the bastards of the GOPe in the Bush orbit.

We are at war. Make not mistake.

No, Chris Hayes’ glasses don’t at all make him look smarter. They make him look more like a liar.
