One discovery in the shocking New Year’s Eve police attack will leave your jaw on the floor

Crime has trended in the wrong direction over the past few years.

And 2023 is already off to a challenging start.

Now one discovery in the shocking New Year’s Eve police attack will leave your jaw on the floor.

New Year’s Eve celebrations in New York City were tempered by a disturbing attack on police officers.

But the so-called mainstream media are leaving out the detail that the attacker was an Islamic extremist who was known by law enforcement.

Islamic extremist suspect was allegedly already on FBI watchlist

The New York Post reported that the “alleged Islamic extremist who attacked three NYPD cops with a machete near the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square is a 19-year-old man from Maine who recently became radicalized — and was already on an FBI watchlist…Suspect Trevor Bickford, of Wells, Maine, traveled to New York on an Amtrak train — arriving on Dec. 29 — and appeared to have been a lone wolf…He allegedly told the feds after his arrest that he hatched the violent plan as recently as Friday, and made statements that he wanted to attack a uniformed officer or someone armed because they are the ‘enemy of the state,’ according to the sources. Sources said the teen became ‘radicalized’ as recently as a month ago.”

Needless to say, if the attacker had been a right-wing nutjob, the corporate press would be all over the story.

Tucker Carlson and Fox News would be to blame.

NY Congresswoman says attacker slipped through because leftists at FBI were too focused on censoring social media

Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) said on Fox News in response to the reports that the suspect in the Times Square machete attack on police officers had been on the FBI’s radar, that the FBI is “focused on Twitter, focused on social media, not looking at the people that they need to look at, the true criminals, not the people out there who are political enemies.”

Thankfully, the three police officers in the incident are expected to make a full recovery.

The Post added that “Bickford’s mother and aunt had notified authorities because he apparently made statements indicating a desire to go fight in Afghanistan alongside Islamic militants, landing him on the FBI’s terrorism ‘Guardian Watchlist’…Officer Louis Iorio, who is stationed in Staten Island, suffered a gash to the head, the sources said. The other wounded officer, a rookie who is assigned to the Police Academy, was identified by sources as Paul Cozzolino. He suffered a fractured skull. They were both taken to Bellevue Hospital.A third officer, Michael Hanna, also a rookie, shot Bickford in the shoulder after he and the other cops were attacked, the sources said. Hanna, who joined the force in April, was also injured and taken to Mount Sinai West.”

Sadly, crime is up in many blue cities across the country due in large part to pro-crime policies.

Since this crime received some degree of media scrutiny, there is pressure for prosecutors not to let the attacker off with a slap on the wrist.
