These are scary times for our men and women in the blue.
With all of the hatefulness coming from Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, violence against police officers is at a high.
And it’s not just current officers that are at risk.
Just this week, a retired NYPD sergeant was brutally beaten in Manhattan by a 20-year-old.
Here’s the full details on the story from the New York Post:
A retired NYPD sergeant was punched and kicked as he lay helplessly on the ground in a brutal Manhattan beatdown caught on security footage, police sources told The Post.
The former cop can be seen speaking with his assailant for at least a minute last Tuesday morning as they stand outside a Garment District deli on West 39th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenue, according to disturbing footage obtained by The Post.
The suspect, whom police sources have identified as Masterjadin Roman, 20, then allegedly throws a bottle at the retired officer.
The man charges at Roman, who manages to wrestle the NYPD veteran to the ground and land more than a dozen punches to his head.
Eventually Roman relents. He and his pal appear to swipe the former cop’s cellphone and headphones — only for Roman to return to kick the former sergeant in the head as he kneels on the ground trying to regain his composure.

Here’s what’s trending on Twitter over the incident:
And who is it who allows this lawlessness to occur!
This is what happens when you put a Democrat like Bill de Blasio in charge.
Criminals run rampant and assault law-abiding citizens brazingly in the streets.
Unfortunately, this wasn't the only incident of a police officer being attacked this week.
The State reports how an off-duty police officer was attacked while shopping at Walmart in South Carolina:
An off-duty police officer was rushed to a hospital Thursday afternoon after a man knocked him to the ground and started hitting him “for no apparent reason” at a South Carolina Walmart, Spartanburg police say.

The suspect, identified as James Ray Cunningham, 22, punched the officer several times and was brandishing a knife during the struggle, but witnesses were able to pull him off of the officer, according to police.
The off-duty officer, who was working security at the Walmart, was taken to a hospital for treatment, but his condition wasn’t known.
He was in uniform when he was attacked, Fox Carolina reported.
You can bet that a Biden-Harris presidency wouldn't do anything to protect our police officers.
