The NYPD is reportedly investigating “several threats” to kill officers New Year’s Eve, an event organizers are hoping will become known as “The New Year’s Even Massacre 2014.”
DNAinfo New York reports:
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.”
The threats primarily come in tweets baring a host of vicious anti-NYPD hash tags including #@deadcopseveryday, #onlydeadcops, #wingsonpigs and #laughatyourdeaths, according to law enforcement sources.
One tweet reads: “Dear Police, Don’t think this cant happen again” accompanied by a photo of armed Blank Panthers from the 1960s and 1970s, sources say.
According to sources, the NYPD have received over 60 threats since the dual murder of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Sixteen people have been arrested in connection to those threats, while 23 investigations remain open.
