The Sergeant’s Benevolent Association (SBA), which represents thousands of New York City police sergeants, said on Sunday that they will go to ‘war’ with ‘anti-cop’ Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) after several police officers were targeted in brazen attacks over the weekend, with one ending up in the hospital.

Suspect Robert Williams was arrested after allegedly attacking two officers within 12 hours – starting when he opened fire on a marked NYPD van on the evening of Feb 8, hitting officer Paul Stroffolino, 31, who was shot in the neck and chin. Almost 12 hours later, Williams walked into the 41st precinct station house just before 8 a.m. on Sunday morning and opened fire in the lobby in the presence of several police officers. He has been charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. 

Stroffolino was released Sunday morning to applause from his fellow officers following a full recovery.

Earlier Sunday, the union tweeted that Mayor de Blasio would not be welcome to visit wounded officers in the hospital, and that the police has no “respect” for the Democratic mayor, according to The Hill.

“Mayor DeBlasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you! We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you,” tweeted the SBA.

“Police are being targeted.The anti cop tone infecting our city & state is causing bloodshed. Before any public official sends their thoughts & prayers, they should ask themselves how the language & behavior they’ve been tolerating has contributed to violence against police,” the union continued.

This is a stunning moment in American culture. Proud, dedicated police sergeants declaring war on a treacherous cop-hater who has done more to incite violence against #LawEnforcement than anyone in history. No punches pulled. A shocking indictment of #CopHaterDeBlasio https://t.co/7C3LymzImX
