An NYPD officer was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the Bronx early Tuesday morning, law enforcement sources said.
The officer was mowed down at the intersection of East 170th Street and Walton Avenue in Mt. Eden by the driver of a dark sedan, according to dramatic footage of the incident.
The officer was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was expected to survive, sources said.
The recording of the hit-and-run, which was posted to Twitter, showed the cop get launched into the air and hit another vehicle after being struck.

Police officers should stand down, go home, and leave the cities to get what they voted for

Did you see Sasha's response? That infuriated me most.
I hear what you're saying and I agree. Texas and Louisiana is pretty well packed with steel but (and maybe why) you don't see people setting cop cars and buildings on fire.
Yeah - Who am I kidding? I knew it would only be the same if not worse. I think many of us feel that it will get far worse with no clear end in sight. Political divide - Viral Quarantines - Protests - Riots - Rising tide of strife and possible war with China on the horizon... At least I can depend on the hearts of people in this beautiful count..... Ehhh I can no longer believe nor have faith in my fellow man.

A very serious question. What would you expect 50 police to do when confronted by a couple of hundred violent rioters? Asking them to stop is not an option, so what? How would you handle it?

Agreed and, maybe after the cops take a time out, peace could be had by people appreciating the return of the good cops and good cops staging a reform of their ranks by extracting the corrupt cops. I have had encounters with both kinds and know there are way more good cops than bad but it took decades of meeting good cops to undo the hate I felt after being abused by one bad cop, one time. I knew at the time it was pointless to report him because they all protect each other. This is the sort of thing that diminishes their effectiveness and public support.
