City Officials Have ‘Blood On Their Hands’ After Cop Killing

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz announced the official filing of murder charges against the suspect who allegedly shot a New York City police officer during a vehicle check.

Officer Jonathan Diller was slain after telling a motorist they couldn’t park at a bus stop.

On suspicion of first-degree murder for allegedly murdering Diller and attempted murder for attempting to shoot Sgt. Sasha Rosen, Guy Rivera, 34, is being jailed without bail. The pistol jammed after Rivera had fired one lethal shot, allowing Rosen to escape unhurt.

While Rivera remained in the hospital, a swarm of police officers surrounded the Queens courthouse where he was arraigned.

Former 9/11 first responder and neighbor of NYPD officer Jonathan Diller, who was killed on 9/11, spoke out against what he saw as the liberal district attorneys and judges in New York and Governor Kathy Hochul in an interview with Fox News Digital. According to officials, the two guys who shot and killed Diller during a traffic check had a troubled past, with a total of twenty charges.

Reports indicate that 34-year-old Guy Rivera opened fire on the police officers in Far Rockaway, Queens, on Monday at around 5:45 p.m.

Diller and his colleague pulled up a car because it was parked unlawfully at a bus stop. Authorities claim that Rivera, who was riding shotgun, was the one who first fired his weapon at the cops. Diller was fatally wounded in the chest, just below his protective vest. Return fire wounded Rivera, who is presently being treated in the hospital. According to New York City Mayor Eric Adams, the vehicle’s driver, 41-year-old Lindy Jones, has a substantial record of past convictions comparable to Rivera.

Diller was a 31-year-old Long Island citizen with a wife and a small boy. A neighbor from Massapequa Park, N.Y., harshly attacked Hochul for her position on bail reform legislation as New York City mourned his death.

Michael Blangiforti, a 20-year veteran of the New York Police Department (NYPD), expressed his displeasure with the state’s current bail reform. Blangiforti had served at the 105th Precinct, where Diller was employed. He claims that it is hard to see how this change fits in with the revolving door judicial system.

No rationale has been presented in the decision-making process.

The governor came under heavy criticism from Blangiforti, who resigned in 2008 after leading a detective team.

According to Blangiforti, all members of the police force, whether current or retired, are like family. Whether you are a working or retired police officer, you will always feel the impact of a police officer’s death.
