MS-13 Puts Out Hit On Police

Law enforcement agencies warned their officers to take extra precautions because MS-13 planned to shoot a cop.

Nassau County, NY – The Nassau County Police Department sent out an intelligence bulletin warning their officers that MS-13 gang members are planning to shoot a cop on Long Island.

On Wednesday, the Hempstead Police Department (HPD) warned neighboring law enforcement agencies that it had received a credible threat through a reliable informant that MS-13 was “looking to shoot a cop in the Hempstead Area,” according to the officer awareness memo by NCPD.

Hempstead is a stronghold of the violent Salvadoran gang, the New York Post reported.

A copy of the NCPD memo has been widely distributed publicly on social media, advising that the informant told police that the Salvadoran gang thought police had been making too many arrests, and “it’s time to takes the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in El Salvador” to make a statement, according to the police memo.

Any member of the MS-13 was authorized by the gang to carry out the attack, the informant warned HPD.

Police were searching for a tall, thin, light-skinned Hispanic man with a tattoo of three dots next to his eye in connection with the threat.

“It is imperative that members of the department take these threats seriously and adapt their work habits and lifestyles accordingly,” the NCPD memo urged its officers.

The department provided a list of guidelines it said officers should adopt immediately, which included common sense steps like locking down privacy on social media and removing all references to law enforcement employment.

Officers were urged to conduct “counter surveillance techniques” when driving between work and home, and to vary their routes.

The memo also suggested officers try not to remain stationary while on the job, and that they should scan the entrances to police facilities carefully before entering.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) sent the NCPD briefing memo to all of its officers on April 18 because a large number of NYPD officers reside in Nassau County and commute into the city.

MS-13 Just targeted themselves.. Not smart.

Someone suggested an "open hunting season" on MS-13 members. I never thought I'd think such an idea was acceptable in a civilized society. Unfortunately, these people have morphed into animals who "feed" on others. No real choice but too eliminate the threat.

as much as I want the same Buzz, not good for the general public. I do see ICE stepping up to the plate in a big hurry though (hopefully).

If we know WHO, and WHERE, I don't see a problem. let's re-visit the vigilante program. We have more than enough vets in this country. Extreme times call for extreme measures.

Trump needs to federalize the national guard and federalize and activate state militias.
Militarize border and deputize law abiding Americans to assist on the border. Take the gooves off. And arm the national guard as if they were in Afghanistan or Iraq. If fired upon by threats at the border or from inside mexico seek and destroy. Like the Marine Corps hyme. From halls of mntazum to the shores of tripoli.
