AOC explodes after woman taken in unmarked police car. NYPD: She’s wanted for damaging police cameras.

NEW YORK CITY – Apparently, it’s now common practice to refer to arrests enacted by police while utilizing unmarked police vehicles as “abducting” people off of the street – and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is actually suggesting it’s peoples’ “responsibility to resist authoritarianism.”

Of course, this “authoritarianism” Ocasio-Cortez speaks of is a lawful arrest condoned by the NYPD and executed by the warrant squad.

In a viral video that was (unsurprisingly) spread by the ACLU, it showcases an arrest of a woman who was wanted to damaging police cameras and was thus arrested by the warrant squad. So, the ACLU decided to frame the video with the following caption:

“BREAKING: We’re receiving reports that at least one protester was abducted off the streets today by unmarked “officers” — this time in New York City. These dangerous, abusive, and indefensible actions must stop. Law enforcement must be held accountable.”

Notice how the ACLU put “officers” in quotation marks?

That type of “journalism” is a passive-aggressive jab to imply that maybe those aren’t police officers…or maybe they’re even something more nefarious going on. Hence, our demonstration earlier when referring to the ACLU’s video and summary of the events captured as “journalism”.

Ocasio-Cortez decided to retweet this poorly framed version of events, writing the following:

“Our civil liberties are on brink. This is not a drill. There is no excuse for snatching women off the street and throwing them into unmarked vans. To not protect our rights is to give them away. It is our responsibility to resist authoritarianism.”

Well, according to the video and subsequent NYPD press release – that was in fact “not a drill”.

It was a lawful arrest.

According to a press release by the NYPD, they stated the following:

“In regard to a video on social media that took place at 2 Ave & 25 St, a woman taken into custody in an unmarked van was wanted for damaging police cameras during 5 separate criminal incidents in & around City Hall Park. The arresting officers were assaulted with rocks & bottles.”

From there, the NYPD further clarified how other NYPD officers were clearly affording the officers cover to enact the arrest:

“When officers from the Warrant Squad took the woman into custody in a gray NYPD minivan this evening, they were assaulted with rocks and bottles. The Warrant Squad uses unmarked vehicles to effectively locate wanted suspects.”

“When she was placed into the Warrant Squad’s unmarked gray minivan, it was behind a cordon of NYPD bicycle cops in bright yellow and blue uniform shirts there to help effect the arrest.”

And of course, with incidents like these, the infamous legal scholars who got their law degree from Twitter have taken to the internet to explain what is and it not a legal arrest:

“I do not believe they were explaining the Miranda rights to her as she was taken. She was not arrested; she was abducted. Where are the second amendmenters? This is literally the reason why it was put into the constitution. You know… to protect yourself… from the government.”

Thank goodness there were those with common sense online, that pointed out that someone does not have to be read their rights prior to being taken into custody:

“You don’t have to be mirandized until you’re about to be questioned, not when you’re being arrested or detained. Have you never read Miranda v. Arizona? Obviously, you haven’t, sheep.”

Those being perennially outraged by the videoed arrest are posing silly question such as whether this arrest was “appropriate”.

Once again, the comments did not disappoint in that many people thought the arrest was good as gold.

At this point, it seems that no matter what police officers do in order to safely and effectively do their job, those among the radical-left simply don’t like the idea for getting arrested for things like stealing, criminal damage, or anything of the ilk.

But hey – these are peaceful protests.
