The domestic terrorist group Antifa tried to hold a dangerous mass protests against the New York City Police Department in and around the Big Apple’s subway system on Friday.
The NYPD increased its presence in the city subways after rumors of the coming attacks leaked out, according to Fox News.
Police issued a strong warning for commuters to “pay close attention” to their surroundings.
“This is [the] true endgame of the anti-police movement, an end of all policing & destruction of public order,” the Police Benevolent Association of New York City said in a tweet. “Our members have spent their careers — and in some cases given their lives — to bring public safety back to NYC. We can’t go backwards.”

Days earlier, the domestic terror outfit claimed that “The streets are ours. The trains our ours. The walls are ours. This moment is ours.”
“We encourage you to link up with your friends, your family, and think of the ways you can move in affinity to build and fuck shit up on J31 all day long,” a masked person says on the terror group’s video.
“The mood for J31 is simple: fuck your $2.75. No cops on the MTA, free transit, no harassment period and full accessibility… Fuck the police.”
The NYPD said it had ample police presence to prevent any unrest.
On the day in question, officials reported that some subway stations were vandalized and arrests were made. A number of protesters linked arms in Grand Central and other locations.
However, the protests were mostly a bust when all was said and done.
“This demonstration activity follows the dangerous pattern of previous activities that have resulted in vandalization and defacement of MTA property, clearly violating laws,” MTA Chief Safety Officer Patrick Warren said in a statement. “Those actions divert valuable time, money and resources away from investments in transit services that get New Yorkers to their jobs, schools, doctors and other places they need to go. The MTA has zero tolerance for any actions that threaten the safety of the public and our employees, and impede service for millions of customers. We are monitoring conditions as we cooperate with the NYPD and MTA PD to maintain service while ensuring everyone’s safety.”
