It has just been exposed that Civil rights lawyer Richard Emery has ties to the legal-aid group featured in a cop-killer video. Emery was picked by Mayor Bill de Blasio to chair the Civilian Complaint Review Board, which investigates the public’s complaints about police brutality.

Richard Emery’s law firm supports a group called the Bronx Defenders. According to their website, “The Bronx Defenders provides innovative, holistic, and client-centered criminal defense, family defense, civil legal services, social work support and advocacy to indigent people of the Bronx. ”
In early December, a rap video was created entitled “Hands Up”. In the video, two bandanna wearing black men are repeatedly shown pointing handguns at a white police officer’s head. The Bronx Defenders office has a cameo in the violent music video.
The defense group not only received financial support from Richard Emery’s law firm, but since 2009 they received at least $1.5 million from the Obama Justice Department.

In an interview with The Daily Signal, Emery called the video “reprehensible.” He claims the Bronx Defenders were “duped” into participating in the video.
“BD does fine work as public defenders,” Emery said. “That is why we support them.”
The website reports, “He accused The Daily Signal of ‘doing [Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association president] Pat Lynch’s bidding’ to ‘stir up’ racial tensions.”
When asked how the New York Police Department could trust his fairness given these connections, Emery said, “I am sure your mother has connections by two, three or six degrees to a murderer.”
The Bronx Defenders  publicly stated it did not know the cop-killer video would contain images of police with guns to their heads, but they declined to say if the knew about the lyrics calling for the murder of police officers.

The song, “Hands Up” was released two weeks before the fatal shooting of two NYPD police officers.

  1. Well, apparently the Mayor is doing all he can to mend fences….right…..No way, if every police officer that views this photo takes off his badge and blues and tells the people “screw it”! They didn’t sign on for target practice to a bunch of thugs that want to kill police because Mike Brown wanted to be a fool!! Mike Brown is WHY Mike Brown is dead!!! Garner, he had tons of health problems and if they had JUST FOLLOWED COMMANDS!!! They didn’t have to die! But to blame the cops on the actions of a thug….I want to see Browns juve report! But oh no, is there something in there so “terrible” that we can’t know what it is!! Could it be…surely not… BS!!! I have had many encounters with police, and yes I had one that was an ASSHOLE! But even though in the end, all charges where dropped, I still went to jail, and he was a bad cop! But I would never want to kill a human being! And for this man to associated with this picture!!! I would tell them to go straight to hell!! So, today is New Years Eve and I am going to be praying all goes well!!! But right now, I wouldn’t be anywhere around the ball drop!!!! Happy New Years to ALL, GOD Bless you officers, stay safe, go home tonight alive, and everyone else!
