NYC Mayor Taps Ex-NYPD Commissioner Who Screwed Cops As COVID-19 Senior Adviser

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio brought back recently retired NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill to serve as a senior advisor.

New York, NY – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday that former New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner James O’Neill had joined his team as his coronavirus senior advisor but not everybody is happy about the appointment.

De Blasio called former Commissioner O’Neill one of “the finest public servants our City has ever known,” the New York Post reported.

“Jimmy will leverage his extensive management experience and knowledge of the City to ensure that our healthcare workers on the front lines have the supplies they need to save New Yorkers lives,” the mayor said.

O’Neill left NYPD in December 2019 to become head of security for Visa after serving as the city’s top cop for three years, the New York Post reported.

“Jimmy’s coming to aid us because of the willingness of his company Visa and particularly its CEO Al Kelly,” de Blasio said. “It’s going to be truly life-saving.”

The mayor thanked Visa for making it possible for O’Neill to join his team at this critical time.

“How could you not want to help this great city?” O’Neill asked a press conference with de Blasio on April 1. “I’m going to do my best.”

“It’s a responsibility of all New Yorkers to do their part,” he continued. “I always felt that way and I continue to feel that way.”

The mayor said O’Neill would work with City Hall and coordinate with other agencies to maintain the supply chain and staffing in the city’s hospitals, the New York Post reported.

Not everyone was happy about O’Neill’s return to emergency services in New York City, the New York Post reported.

“BREAKING NEWS Stupid [CENSORED] Mayor DeBlasio brings the worst Police Commissioner in NYPD history James ONEILL back to run Corona Task Force,” the NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association (NYPDSBA) tweeted. “The guy is a coward. He ran out the door when crime stats went up & never prepared the NYPD for a true bio chemical terrorist attack.”

“I was really hoping the announcement was an April Fool’s joke,” an NYPD officer told Blue Lives Matter. “Unfortunately, it’s real. I have no idea why they brought him back. It’s certainly not good for officers’ morale at a rough time. This guy could have had the department ready to protect its officers. It’s his fault that we don’t have basic protective equipment.”

Why does NYC continue to vote in complete idiots? Not sarcasm. A serious question. de blasio is bottom of the bucket. Is there no one in NYC more qualified? I watched this fool discussing robotics a few days ago and I would have been rolling in the floor laughing except I realized that he was serious. I thought it was a joke. Unbelievable. Sure hate to see good people hurt but maybe this city needs some cleaning of the gene pool.

I feel bad for NYPD and all New Yorkers! They just need to get rid of De Bozo as fast and as soon as possible! He's such a low-rate clown and doesn't deserve to be Mayor of that fine City. I hope they've learned their lesson electing FOOLS, who are incompetent and worthless as tits on a boar hog!

It's easy to hate evil, lying useless, Democrat politicians because they are always "in your face" doing what they do best, destroying everything good. The real problem is their voters and without them we wouldn't even know the names of many leftist politicians. We are surrounded by fools. Just imagine the wrath from many Democrats if Jesus showed up saying something like "I'm the son of God and here to help you be happy if you turn from your sins".

Only reason they picked spineless bs artist and coward Ex pc, is to hide the fact they are getting everything possible from feds.
Nyc screams no aide but feds sent nyc 4k plus ventilators already and more on yhe way and billions in aide and gear. The state is distributing blame cuomo.

Jimmy oneil is nothing less than Piece of shit who fired a white cop based on politics.

Nypd cops get sicker, and they are still w/o protective gear. They spent millions on body cams and smart phones but cant find a penny to protect the street cop from pandemic.

They have dept surgeons pushing cops back to work who are sick to cover the gap in patrol. Love how armchair generals like chief of patrol does a video to all cops at roll call saying u have to keep working even if you were exposed to covid19 virus. Just like 9/11 telling us all the AIR was fine at ground zero as i was stuck on post that look like sahar sand storm. Chiefs hide at 1pp locked hehind a door as they send cops to their death just to tell mayor they got patrol covered.

They still till this day haven't given these cops and real protective gear other than
Bs sheet rock protective mask.

Its a joke. As is present police commissioner.

Love how poor cops pba president stays silent. Great job paty lynch.

2 1/2 yrs no contract no protective gear for cops. Great job. Biggest union in country and has power of 3 dollar bill.

Nypd cops are truly on their own.

May God watch over their souls.
