No fewer than 11 New York Police Department officers were injured during violent riots staged by BLM/Antifa domestic terrorists in New York City last night.

From a story at DailyWire:
On Monday night, eleven police officers were injured, including one officer who was hit in the head by a glass bottle, as the NYPD and members of a Black Liberation March commemorating Martin Luther King Day clashed near New York City’s City hall.
“Police told protesters to disperse and violence broke out as officers began arresting demonstrators. A total of 28 people were arrested late Monday,” NBC New York reported, citing police sources. The marchers started from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and moved toward City Hall.
ABC 7 reported that police arrested 28 people, most of whom were “charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and blocking the roadway.”
When taken in the context of a dramatically rising incidence of violent crime in the city in the wake of the decision by the communist Democrats who run it to defund the NYPD to the tune of $150 million, one might think that an already overwhelmed department would need to have all available hands to deal with the potential for more riot violence tonight and in the coming days.
But no, you would be wrong. It turns out that Mayor Bill de Blasio apparently believes he has all sorts of resources to spare, given this report by the New York Post:
NYPD arrives in Washington, DC, to help with Inauguration Day security
Dozens of NYPD officers were dispatched to Washington, DC, to help provide security for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden following the deadly siege at the US Capitol.
A video posted to Twitter shows five buses of NYPD cops in DC on Monday.
“This morning, 200 of your officers begin their journey down to the U.S. Capitol, to represent the NYPD and assist with security for Wednesday’s Presidential Inauguration,” the police department tweeted.
That’s right: It turns out that the addition of 26,000 National Guard personnel to the forces of the DC Metro police, the FBI, the Capitol Police and all the myriad other local law enforcement agencies and bureaus and on and on and on just aren’t enough to protect the installation of an illegitimate sock puppet into the presidency tomorrow at noon: DC Mayor Muriel Bowser says she needs to borrow 3,000 more LEOs from other police departments around the country.
This is absolutely disgraceful, a clear effort to threaten and intimidate the half of Americans who do not believe this was a fair and legitimate election from doing or saying anything to oppose it. The DC Swamp knows its Big Lie has failed, and so the brutish bullying must go on.
That is all.
