Karma came quickly for Broadway actress Jacqueline Guzman, who was inconvenienced by the temporary street closings in Lower Manhattan on Friday due to the funeral of fallen NYPD officer Jason Rivera.

Rivera, 22, was fatally shot while responding to a domestic dispute call on Jan. 21. Thousands turned out to mourn the rookie officer.

According to The New York Post, Guzman vented her feelings in a despicable online rant as she walked down one of the empty streets which she recorded and posted to her now-deleted TikTok page. Her handle on the social media website had been @vinylboobs.

In the video, Guzman tells her 294 followers: “We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly. They kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason and we don’t shut down the city for them.”

“Like this is f***ing ridiculous. This is f***ing ridiculous. What if somebody is having a heart attack in this area. Nobody can get to them because it’s all blocked off for one f***ing cop.”

Predictably, the loathsome clip immediately went viral.

The Post reported that once her theater company, Face to Face Films, learned of her heartless diatribe, Guzman was quickly fired which she so richly deserved.

The company posted a brief statement on Facebook which read: “Face to Face Films has just been made aware of an insensitive video involving one of our members, Jacqueline Guzman. Face to Face Films does not support nor can condone these comments made about fallen Officer Rivera. As a result, she is no longer a member of our company.”

By Saturday night, @vinylboobs had vanished from TikTok. According to the Post, Guzman had removed all of her social media accounts. The newspaper reported that calls to the actress “had not been immediately returned.”

Social media users were stunned by Guzman’s cruelty.

Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch told the Post on Saturday: “New Yorkers turned out by the thousands yesterday to help us honor our fallen brother. One person spreading hate cannot erase that. This kind of garbage has polluted the conversation for far too long. We need the New Yorkers who are standing with us to speak up and push back.”

In a Sunday blog post, Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw wondered if Guzman voiced any complaints “during the BLM riots when all of the streets were blocked off by people who never filed for a permit to hold an organized protest. Did she post a rant about that as well? After all, no ambulance would have been able to make it through those crowds either.”

Although Guzman’s contempt for police officers is extreme, it’s a direct consequence of the defund the police movement.

“Defund the police” has led to the demonization of police officers. The death of George Floyd somehow made it okay to treat the men and women whom we count on to be there when we need them, with disrespect.

The death of a man who “plead guilty to entering a woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money,” who resisted arrest while high on fentanyl, then after police put him into their car, insisted in his agitated state that they take him out saying, “I wanna lay on the ground.” [Time stamp: 8:53 – The American Spectator’s George Parry produced this film which records the entire arrest.]

He has been held up as a saint while police officers, who put their lives on the line every time they respond to a call are vilified.

That one incident sparked a war on all cops that’s left many of them demoralized. Is it a surprise that police have retired in big numbers over the past two years and departments throughout the country are having trouble attracting quality candidates?

Without law and order, we have nothing.
