When a segment of society spends months screaming that cops are a bunch of racist, murderous thugs, can it really come as a surprise when those cops decide to stop serving and protecting anymore? New Yorkers are about to find out.

The New York Post reports that the NYPD saw a 400% increase in police retirement applications this week compared to last year — so much so that the police department needs to temporarily limit further applications:

The NYPD said Wednesday that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, an astounding 411 percent increase over the 35 who filed during the same period in 2019.

The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.

That number represents a 75 percent increase over the 287 who filed for retirement during the same time last year, the NYPD said.

Sources said the deluge of applications had overwhelmed the department — due to cancellation of overtime for the workers who process them — and that the number of daily applicants was being limited as a result.

On Tuesday, The Post spotted a line of cops waiting outside the office at One Police Plaza where retirement papers get filed […]

“There’s just droves and droves of people retiring. But there’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job?” one cop said.

“Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do?”

It’s not just Black Lives Matter-inspired hatred and pension issues driving the spike, either. Liberal ideas about criminal-justice “reform” also played a role:

“You have to be crazy to stay on a job where you are losing money, abused by the people you are trying to protect and not appreciated by the politicians,” the source said.

A Manhattan detective also noted the impact of controversial criminal justice and bail reform laws.

“It is frustrating — you work on a case and then the suspect is let go,” the 25-year veteran said.

“Why put your job on the line, when no one appreciates you or has your back?”

Good questions, and entirely foreseeable. What did anyone think would happen in a city where “low-level” rioters are allowed to walk, police are forced to re-arrest the same perps over and over again, the political leadership is firmly against cops, and the NPYD has to deal with massive budget cuts that, according to its representative in Washington DC, should have been even higher?

Now is not the time for Republicans to try to out-pander Democrats on race, or to offer their own “kinder, gentler” ways to restrict police. The GOP and the Right need to clearly, aggressively frame themselves as the party of law and order — the party that stands to reassure Americans they can defend themselves and count on defenders patrolling their communities, the party that recognizes how difficult and essential a police officer’s job is, the party that wants cops reinforced rather than criminals coddled.

In other words, just stand for sanity. Either the message will resonate, in which case Republicans will win bigly again, or at least we’ll know whether or not states like New York are truly too far gone to save.
