Violence and looting continued in New York City overnight despite the implementation of an 11:00 p.m. curfew.

The Bronx, a majority-minority borough, saw widespread violence, with fires, looting and NYPD officers being attacked. Videos recorded by people on the ground were posted all over social media.

Cell phone video that has gone viral showed a sergeant struck at the intersection of Walton Avenue and East 170th Street in Tremont.

In a separate incident in The Bronx, an officer was assaulted in front of a store on East Fordham Road and East Tiebout Avenue. The attack was caught on camera, with the video posted on the Sergeants Benevolent Association’s Twitter account.

Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. released a statement on Twitter overnight in response to the violence.

“This is not who we are, we are better than this! This is not how we seek justice! What we saw on Fordham Rd. only detracts from our message of racial justice & our calls for police reform,” said Diaz, Jr. “Such actions are not consistent with keeping the memory & legacy of those we fight for alive.”

Meanwhile, Manhattan, Midtown especially, was ravaged by looting overnight, which included Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square.

While the NYPD failed to contain the rioters, they were efficient earlier in the day in escorting Orthodox Jews out of a Brooklyn park.

Over the weekend, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) daughter, Chiara, was arrested for participating in one of the riots.

The Mayor commented on a peaceful protest in Brooklyn but didn’t offer any remarks on the chaos in other parts of the city overnight.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) took to Twitter to call out the current officeholder.

“Mayor de Blasio needs to step down,” Giuliani wrote. “He is incompetent. We are losing a tremendous amount of property. We are seeing people damaged and hurt. Pretty soon, we’re going to lose lives if this man doesn’t get out of the way and let someone activate the police department!”

Before addressing the nation Monday night, President Donald Trump told the nation’s governors that they need to take control of their states, particularly their major cities.

“You have to arrest people and you have to try people. And they have to go to jail for long periods of time,” Pres. Trump said.

Under New York’s bail reform laws, almost all of the people who were arrested for looting will be released without bail, the NYPD told Fox News.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights Back DOJ Challenging Legal Citizenship Voter Law

Published

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with one clear message: ‘We’ll see you in court.’

Biden’s DOJ is challenging an Arizona law aimed to protect its citizens by ensuring only citizens can vote in elections.

Brnovich makes mention of a letter he received from Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General, dated June 27, 2022 “expressing your intent to challenge HB 2492, Arizona’s law that assures only citizens are able to vote in our elections.”

“Please be assured that I will defend this law to the U.S. Supreme our if necessary and defeat the federal government’s efforts to interfere with our state’s election safeguards, as I did last year in Brnovich v. DNC” the letter continued.

“It is curious, however, that the Department of Justice would use its resources to challenge a common sense law inn Arizona designed to guard against non-citizen voting, while the Biden Administration nis simultaneously opening our borders to encourage a flood of illegal immigration.”

“Is the federal government attempting to undermine our sovereignty and destabilize our election infrastructure?” Brnovich asks. “I hope that is not your intention.” The Arizona Attorney General concludes his letter by writing “I strongly urge you to reconsider your pursuit of this misguided suit and to instead recognize Arizona’s constitutional authority to conduct lawful and secure elections.”
