Cops Still Protesting de Blasio
When two NYPD police officers were assassinated last month in a racially motivated attack in retribution for the death of Eric Garner, it was clear the blame rested with the race-bait rhetoric spewed by Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Bill de Blasio. New York City’s mayor particularly exasperated cops by blaming “centuries of racism” and criticizing law enforcement. When de Blasio visited the hospital where the bodies of the two officers were taken, other officers there turned their backs on him. They did so again at the funeral for Officer Rafael Ramos last Saturday – for which de Blasio was two hours late. No matter the sentiment, police commissioner Bill Bratton called the move “very inappropriate.” Former mayor Rudy Giuliani likewise said, “[It] doesn’t matter if you like the mayor or you hate the mayor, you have to respect the mayor’s position.” However, de Blasio’s main problem is that he hasn’t proved himself worthy of respect.
