'That's on me.' NYPD deputy commissioner takes blame for not adequately preparing for looters.

While police knew violent agitators planned to smash windows at high-end stores and businesses identified with capitalism, they appeared not to realize"That's an intelligence failure in that if a couple hundred people knew to be in a certain place at certain time for criminal activity and if we didn't detect that, that's on me," Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller told reporters Saturday.

Miller said the looters figured correctly that most police resources would be tied up protecting legitimate marches and confronting violent elements like the ones who firebombed NYPD vehicles as last weekend began.The city imposed a curfew to help restore order and the looting and vandalism largely stopped within two days.

Broken glass at a Capitol One bank is seen after a night of protest over the death of an African American man George Floyd in Minneapolis on June 2, 2020, in Manhattan in New York City.

The NYPD has made 1,049 total arrests from May 28 through Saturday morning. In addition to federal riot charges connected to Molotov cocktails, the charges against protesters range from assaulting a police officer to burglary to unlawful assembly. On Friday, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office said it would not prosecute low-level offenses connected to legitimate protests, but would pursue cases connected to looting and assaulting police officers.

No the blame falls solely on the self ENTITLED assholes that are criminals. They didn't do because George Floyd was murdered & they didn't do it because BLM. They looted because that is what they are criminals.

Not johnmillercbs fault NYGovCuomo its like saying he's responsible for the looting, killing & stealing in 1940s that stemmed from so called 'Manifest Destiny.' Its opportinists using the protests to do what they do - bad things

Who took the blame back in 1940s when European Protestabts were looting, stealing & murdering? Weren't their original message about salvation? NYPDnews NYPDDCA sameway bad ppl are trying to drown out the message today. Don't blame yourself, Sir NYPDShea

Maybe they can make up for it by approving some CCWs

This is on you.

What, was he too busy standing by while his people beat peacefully protesters senseless, gassed them, and ran them over with their vehicles? NYPDShea RESIGN

A group of Americans whose brains have been washed by the left. African Americans rely on the political correctness to continuously demand from society. Never ever self-reflection. It will only make black people more depraved.

That is not on you. It is not your fault your men were trying to keep peace against massive odds that they could not have possible handled without massive reinforcement. And sad to say you got way more support for new years then you did for this. NOT YOUR FAULT

If you weren't busy bullying peaceful protesters, you'd have all the manpower you need to stop the looting.
