New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Pays $5,000 to Man Who Attacked Police with Machete

Written by:

How crazy have things gotten in New York City in recent days?

So crazy, that now even criminals are earning good paydays from the city.

Back in 2010 Ruhim Ullah, of Brooklyn was shot by police after attacking them with a machete. The officers shot Ullah in the leg in an effort to keep him from harming anyone while wielding a machete. Ullah eventually pled guilty to menacing the officers, but then in an odd turn of events, the machete wielding maniac sued the city and police for his injuries.

Now, the New York Post is reporting that the city’s lawyers have reportedly settled with Mr. Ullah and have indeed paid the man $5,000 for his troubles!

In a decision that earned City Hall and its lawyers a rare but justified outburst from top cop Bill Bratton, de Blasio’s team wrote a check to a machete-wielding thug who was shot by cops after he threatened them.

The payoff to Ruhim Ullah to drop his lawsuit was only $5,000, but the principle it represented — that cops who shot him did something wrong — sent Bratton into orbit.

“It’s outrageous that the city Law Department is continuing to not support the men and women of this department as they go about their duties,” he thundered. “Our cops work very hard trying to keep this city safe, and if they’re not going to be backed up by the city law office, we need to do something about this.”

It is outrageous that the city would pay a man for committing a crime and placing their police officers in danger… but this is all part of new Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to “cut costs” on the litigation front. De Blasio has told his lawyers to try to expedite every case against them as cheaply and as quickly as possible… which leads to situations like this, where a man is seemingly rewarded for his evil.

While the lawyers may have only made the deal in an effort to save the city money and get the case closed as quickly as possible, what they actually did was make it seem as though the police did something wrong in Mr. Ullah’s case. It was a bad move, forced because of bad policies from a liberal (nay communist) Mayor.

    OMG! THE INMATES ARE RUNNING THE ASSYLUM! It seems like nothing is ‘normal’ these days, everyone is doing the bizarre and calling it normal and those who oppose it or find it bizarre, they call crazy, or ‘mentally ill’ when they are the truly mentally ill who are perpetrating this insanity on society. The farther away from God we get, the darker it gets! People have no anchor these days, and there is only One True Anchor, and that’s the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If we refuse to turn to God and submit to His order, then we will continue to have CHAOS!

    No need to wonder WHAT is wrong with our government – top to bottom – and especially the courts and law enforcement …… it’s overloaded with MARX!

    Wow! It is really paying off to be a criminal these days, especially,
    here in New York State. I guess we will be seeing more ridiculous,
    unwarranted and stupid law suits like this from criminals and their
    relatives because cops do their job. What a joy to live in the great
    criminal State like NY where criminals can be rewarded by the city for
    the crimes they commit making this a great State for criminals to reside
    and prosper. I guess because he only used a machete his reward was only
    $5,000.00 so depending on the level of the crime the payment will
    increase accordingly. I guess that is logical. Liberal logic that is.
    What a bunch of looney tune, deranged, lunatics we have in government.
    These looney idiots need to be gone ASAP. IMHO the guy should be imprisoned if he isn’t already.
    Maybe, if the cop who shot him were to have been shooting for center of mass or for a more fatal shot making the guy a fatality which seems there was justification for doing under the circumstances as I know them rather than just wounding the perp then just maybe there wouldn’t be a law suit as the shooting would have been justified but then again I am thinking like a conservative and not like a liberal.
