Robert Williams is accused of two shootings over the weekend targeting NYPD officers. This is how ABC News covered it:

ABC News: "Police officers here in New York City ambushed in a pair of shootings by the same suspect. The gunman, opening fire [Sunday morning] inside a police precinct in the Bronx."

On Saturday night, Williams allegedly targeted two police officers sitting in a marked van. Williams had a rap sheet that included a shootout with police in 2008, but he had been paroled two years ago and was awaiting a court date for an alleged crime since. New York City's lax criminal justice laws had him out on the street.

Randy Sutton of The Wounded Blue says the Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted that it declared war on the mayor.

"Mayor de Blasio and the governor are very much responsible for the changes in the laws regarding – quote, 'justice reform,' unquote – which has unleashed an army of thugs back on to the streets," he tells OneNewsNow.

Sutton – a 24-year veteran of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department – says public safety will not suffer following the tweet.

"It's a rhetorical statement that they came out with," he explains. "Law enforcement is basically turning their backs against him. When he appeared at a funeral for a police officer, they actually physically did turn their backs on him."

But he says to look for the city's Thin Blue Line to make de Blasio's remaining months as mayor a living nightmare.

Further, Sutton contends that other cities in the U.S. have similar problems due to leaders who are hand-selected by George Soros, having been put into office as district attorneys or prosecutors "mostly through extremely large donations."

The result, according to Sutton? "It is literally them determining who they want to prosecute and many of the things that they just refuse to prosecute," he concludes.
