NEW YORK CITY — The NYPD is investigating several threats to kill NYPD officers during New Year’s Eve celebrations, DNAinfo New York has learned.
Sources say there are several gang members on social media calling for New Year’s Eve to be “Kill a Pig Night” so that it will become “The New Year’s Eve Massacre 2014.”
One tweet reads: “Dear Police, Don’t think this can’t happen again” accompanied by a photo of armed Blank Panthers from the 1960s and 1970s, sources say.
Approximately 15 arrests have been made as result of the threats, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said at a Times Square press conference.
“Any threat against my officer is going to be dealt with very quickly, very effectively,” he said. “We’re not going to let any of them go by the board.”
Police officials say the NYPD is on high alert, particularly in the wake of the Dec. 20 murder of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Their assassin, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, took to Instagram that morning announcing he was coming to New York to kill police officers. Sources say the NYPD has received 63 threats since the shootings and there have been 16 arrests connected to them. There are presently 23 open investigations into threats against NYPD officers, a source said.
In addition to the deadly threats, various radical organizations are also calling for protests to disrupt the New Year’s Eve celebration, but the NYPD says it is prepared to safeguard the millions of revelers and protesters’ rights to demonstrate.

Dr. Charles Angeletti, a tenured professor at Metropolitan State University in Denver, claims to love America. But, if what he had his students do is displaying love for our great republic, then I’d be a little nervous to see how he demonstrates hatred or loathing.
A professor at the university since 1967, Dr. Angeletti has had his students recite this America bashing pledge for the past 20 years. But, for some reason, it is just coming to light thanks to freshman Meteorology major Steven Farr. This ‘new pledge’ reads as follows:
“I pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the United States Against Anything Un-American and to the Republicans for which it stands, two nations, under Jesus, rich against poor, with curtailed liberty and justice for all except blacks, homosexuals, women who want abortions, Communists, welfare queens, treehuggers, feminazis, illegal immigrants, children of illegal immigrants, and you if you don’t watch your step.”
Farr, outraged, shared a copy of the handout of this ‘new pledge’ with Campus Reform . In an interview with them, Farr said, “This was an attempt to propagandize an entire classroom of young adults.” He also conveyed that no alternative political prospective beyond far left progressivism espoused by Angeletti who is an admitted atheist and socialist.
Campus Reform reached out to the professor to give him a chance to explain himself. During the interview, he doubled down on this ‘new pledge.’ He retorted, “We’re very racist, we’re very repressive, we’re very Christian oriented, we don’t tolerate other kinds of thinking in this country. I could go on and on—and do in my classes for hours about things that we need to do to make this a better country.”
As the violent protests of those who believed that Officer Darren Wilson should have been indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown heat up, businesses have been forcibly shut down, major roads and highways have been blocked, and police, as well as civilians, have been attacked. Now, according to Louis Farrakhan, the radical leader of the Nation of Islam here in America, that is just the beginning. He has made a threat against America if angry and bitter protesters do not get their way.
Speaking at Morgan State University, a predominantly black college located in Baltimore, Maryland, Farrakhan continued to stir the civil unrest and encouraged attacks against whites by blacks.
The Daily Caller reports that Farrakhan stated that the violence occurring throughout the country is justified in retaliation to the grand jury decision to not indict Officer Wilson. Peacefulness, Farrakhan asserts, is only in the interest of ‘white folks.’ To uproarious applause from the state college, he added, “We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something!”
Although Americans are constantly told that the violent actions of such Muslim groups such as ISIS, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood are not indicative of all Muslims, that they are the actions of extremists, Farrakhan’s incendiary language aligned with that of his Muslim brethren calling for violence. He said, “As long as they [whites] kill us [blacks] and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”
As he continued with his violent, racist rant, Farrakhan was critical of Obama and Holder stating that violence is not the answer. In response he called for parents to teach their children how to throw molotov cocktails and demonstrated himself how to do so.

MADISON, Wis. – When one looks through the rhetorical veneer of the White Privilege Conference, hypocrisies abound.
The White Privilege folks say;
Other aspects include segregated workshops open to only some conference participants, based solely on the color of their skin. The reason? An organizer told our investigator: “It can feel, for some people of color, unsafe. Not universally – like in your group everybody was fine, but for some people it can feel like, oh, I don’t … ”
“Because I was white they would feel unsafe?” our reporter asked as he was led out of the workshop.
If a white person displayed that attitude with any person of color, it would be called racism. If, for example, an elderly White woman clutches her purse a little tighter in a parking lot when a black man is approaching – because she recently heard about a rash of purse snatchings – she’s a racist.
But if a person of color isn’t comfortable sitting in a room with a White person because of something another White person may have done to them, well that must be racism, too.
But perhaps the most ironic and contradictory occurrence was Victor Woods’ sweet ride.
Woods, convict-turned-best-selling author, wouldn’t tell the audience all of his secrets.
You’d be surprised how many people say, ‘How’d you do it?’ I guarantee you someone in this session will walk up to me when everyone’s gone and say (inaudible) and I will let you know, and it’s in the book for $24.95!
Woods’ red Corvette could be seen parked in the most privileged spot in the parking lot at the conference hotel.
But Woods’ main message was likely lost on attendees.
This is America! … Anything you want to do you can do. … I wrote this book: “Successfully Achieving Your Vision.” Eyesight’s what’s in front of you. Vision is what you see down the road. Work ethic. Perseverance. Do you know how long it took to write this book? Five years. .. See the world opens up for a man or woman who knows where they’re going.
That’s a wise and lasting message for true victims of racism and oppression. But purveyors of the White Privilege Conference would instead have them wallow in pity, anger and ultimately, failure.
“All people are the sum total of their own choices; Good, Bad or Ugly. If you’re offended, it is because you chose to be offended. I don’t like a lot of things I hear or experience, but I refuse to be offended. Happiness is as much a choice as being offended. I’ll take happiness and the peace of God that passes all understanding.” JB
