Convicted Cop Killer Richard Rivera on Police Reform Panel

Who better to reform police in accordance with liberal preferences than a convicted cop killer? If the parody stories at the Babylon Bee aren’t outrageous enough for you, try the actual news reported at the New York Post:

He fatally shot an NYPD cop execution-style decades ago in a Queens bar — and now Richard Rivera is helping reform police in upstate New York as part of a state-mandated plan launched by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

There’s always another reason to admire the Love Gov.

The cop-killer — who murdered off-duty officer and dad-of-four Robert Walsh in 1981 — sits on a panel for Ithaca and Tompkins County as part of its “Reimagining Public Safety Collaborative.’’

What liberals mean by “public safety” is criminals run amok while law-abiding citizens hide under their beds, not even permitted to defend themselves. This is nowhere more obvious than in New York, where bail reform, hostility to police, and repressive gun control have combined to produce the public safety conditions of a jungle.

The advisory group was formed after Cuomo ordered municipalities to submit police-reform plans to the state by April 1 following George Floyd’s death.

That is, the explicit purpose was to punish the police in the name of Black Lives Matter.

Rivera’s senseless murder of the highly decorated 12-year veteran Walsh was committed during the robbery of the BVD Bar and Grill in Queens.

As the hero off-duty officer identified himself as a cop and reached for his gun to try to stop the robbery, Rivera shot him in the shoulder. Rivera then walked over to the officer as he lay helplessly wounded on the floor, pressed his gun to the cop’s head and blasted him again, authorities said.

Rivera has resumed his career as an enemy of society by serving as a left-wing activist.
