NYPD ‘Hunting Of Man’ T-Shirts Seen On On-Duty Officers In Queens (PHOTO)


On-duty members of the NYPD’s Queens Warrant Squad were spotted outside a city courthouse last week wearing T-shirts imprinted with a Ernest Hemingway quote, that in the context of the officers’ work, could be considered very disturbing:

“There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.”

Tipsters, who passed along the photo below to Gothamist and SocialistWorker.org, said that the cops had badges around their necks, and that words on the front of their T-shirts read, “Fugitive Enforcement NYPD.”

Terror on the Today show as crazed man in audience stabs himself in front of Matt Lauer on Rockefeller Plaza


Matt Lauer and the Today show team watched in horror this morning as a crazed man tried to kill himself as they broadcast live to the nation at Rockefeller Plaza.

At around 7.50 a.m. the individual, believed to be in an Asian male in his 50s, began to cut his own wrists with a boxcutter as he stood in the crowd which gathers year-round to watch the iconic breakfast show air.

Dramatic pictures and video from the scene reveal how Today show security staff and the NYPD rushed to intervene as the man – who never attempted to harm anyone else – collapsed in a pool of his own blood on the floor.

NYC Mock Posters Detail Police Terror Drills, Nuclear Threats (Photos)

NYC mocks terror drills

A number of mock posters have been popping up in New York City subways which effectively bring awareness to very real events like the recent odorless gas ‘terror drill’ by the NYPD as well as existing nuclear threats to the city.

I was first alerted to these posters via news tips, where readers were wondering what the deal was with the strange and Orwellian posters. Well as the hashtag  ’#Greywater’ reveals, which is placed at the bottom of the poster, these posters are definitely not ‘official’ posters placed by the NYPD or the city itself. Instead, they are likely marketing tools for the Greywater alternative energy company (finding their website was pretty simple), but they are also quite informative. Checkout one of the posters warning of a terror drill involving odorless and ‘harmless’ gas, which is actually based on a real police test as reported on by RT.

What’s great about these posters is that they turn on the brain of the average passerby who would have otherwise continued on without a single thought on the subject. I would even imagine that many citizens of the city had no idea that the NYPD announced the real drill back in April of this year. The best part is that the poster isn’t much different from the real announcement. Citizens were basically told very few details beyond the fact that the police will be releasing odorless and ‘harmless’ gas throughout the city on 3 non-consecutive days in order to conduct a terror test.

There’s also a poster centered around nuclear concerns that plays on New York City’s close vicinity to nuclear power plants, which the Physicians For Social Responsibility website shows could lead to the emergency evacuation of over 17 million people in the event of a major plant incident that allowed for evacuations. A scenario that would quickly turn chaotic in a major city where citizens are entirely unprepared for any major event. You can see this one below:

While these posters are obviously created by entities outside of the New York City government, and most likely printed up by the Greywater company to perhaps generate awareness and create a viral marketing campaign, I think they’re effective in inciting some conversation. Twitter is already on the case, asking what the heck is up with the random posters, and hopefully the question will soon turn from ‘what are these posters’ to questions over the reality of the issues mentioned by the posters.
