Police are on high alert after receiving “credible” threats targeting two of their Brooklyn precincts days after the execution-style murders of two NYPD officers, according to the Sergeants Benevolence Association.
In tweets posted Tuesday night by the SBA, they warn of the Black Guerrilla Family, which allegedly threatened to “storm” the 79th and 81st Precincts and “shoot it out” with officers inside.
SBA told officers to carry their firearms at all times — on duty and off — and to stay in pairs.
Ray Kelly said on "Fox and Friends" that precincts need to efficiently disseminate information and officers need to have each other's backs.
"It's a difficult time, but the department has gone through these things through the years," Kelly said.
As for Mayor Bill de Blasio's comments that were critical of the NYPD, Kelly said he understands that de Blasio has a difficult job, but the mayor was out of line to side with protesters over police. In particular, Kelly was critical of de Blasio's comments that he had to warn his biracial son to be careful around cops.
"Words matter," Kelly said. "You don't say that when you're mayor of all the people."
