PostSubject: NYC Police Doesn't Want Mayor At Cop Funerals   Sun Dec 14, 2014 12:03 pm

Quote :
NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's rank-and-file police union is urging its members to ban Mayor Bill de Blasio from their funerals.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association posted a link on its website telling members not to let de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito "insult their sacrifice" should they be killed in the line of duty. The union posted a waiver officers can sign requesting the two politicians not attend their funerals due to their "consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve."

The New York Post reports ( [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ) the mayor and council speaker are calling the effort "deeply disappointing."

The mayor customarily attends such funerals.

The union's president has said officers haven't felt supported in the wake of a chokehold death of an unarmed black man.

What are your thoughts on this?
Should they ban the mayor from these funerals?
Do you think that the officers are justified in doing this?

That's a pretty bold statement. Not that I am against it. I will be honest I'm not totally up on all this but I know police are just seen as horrible people. But it only takes 1 to ruin it for all. So I'msure they have a valid reason to do this . I'm going to go read the article in fullnow .

The mayor has to have the back of all the people. Both Citizens and Police. If it is customary that he attend, I think it should be up to the families of the deceased and not a union.

Should be up to the families, not anyone else.

I agree, it should be up to the families and not a union. And honestly if I were him I wouldn't have supported the police force for that occurrence either. There is no gray area in that case like there is in the killing that happened in the Ferguson. This cop was videotaped putting that man in a choke hold and killing him. That is as plain as it gets and there is no denying that the cop used deadly force.

Yeah but those few cops ruined it for the rest.
i know the dirty cop here in town. Her dad is like mob here. So his daughter gets away with everything. The rest of the cops are good. Their hands are tied. It sucks.
But yea you are right. The families should decide. They shouldn't have added stress during their time of loss.

I agree Amy. I don't think it's fair that everyone hates on all cops because there are very great policemen and women out there that are very caring and genuinely want to serve the public and keep us safe. But I also wish that the police forces would hold their men and women accountable for their actions when they get out of line. No one is above the law.
