So this paranoid and irresponsible fantasy hit the news last night and the odious NYPD union chief Pat Lynch released this ominous statement:

But as it turns out, IT DIDN'T HAPPEN! Was it a HOAX?

Daily Beast columnist Harry Siegel says, 'So far in June, the NYPD commissioner has incorrectly accused protesters of throwing "concrete disguised as ice cream" at cops, and the Detectives Union has incorrectly accused Shake Shack of "intentionally poisoning" their milkshakes.'

Don't worry, I'm sure the officers who made these false accusations will be suitably disciplined. Ha ha, just kidding!
