Breaking: NYPD Union Releases Statement On Poisoning, ‘When Nyc Police Officers Cannot Even Take Meal Without Coming Under Attack, It Is Clear That Environment In Which We Work Has Deteriorated To A Critical Level.”


The NYPD Union on Monday released a statement warning their officers to not “let their guard down” following the poisoning of three of their officer at the “Shake Shack.”

NYC PBA tweeted, “#BREAKING When NYC police officers cannot even take meal without coming under attack, it is clear that environment in which we work has deteriorated to a critical level. We cannot afford to let our guard down for even a moment.”


Three police officers fell ill Monday after drinking milkshakes at a Manhattan Shake Shack, and the NYPD was investigating if they were poisoned with bleach.

The officers ordered a meal at the burger chain’s location at Broadway and Fulton St. at about 8:30 p.m. and noticed their shakes tasted strange, police sources said. One of the officers noticed a “clump of something” in one of their cups, and a second cop smelled bleach before all three fell ill, sources said.

Investigators found a bottle of cleaning fluid used to clean the shake machines, though it’s not clear if the officers were targeted, sources said.

The three cops were hospitalized at New York Downtown hospital and are recovering in stable condition, police said. All three are members of the Bronx’s 42nd Precinct, assigned to a protest detail.
