Officer Wenjian Liu ~ and ~ Officer Rafael Ramos RIP
Good for the NYPD. Mayor De Blasio has their blood on his hands.
You might hear media reports about this, and you might hear the media say “a few” police turned their back. Not correct.
Here’s the proof – As you can clearly see in this video EVERY COP turned their back on the Mayor creating a pathway showing only their backs on both sides of him as he walked past.
Meanwhile the New York Times tries desperately to obfuscate their needle threading and find a gentle way to protect De Blasio from the outcomes of his own behavior:
[…] Police union leaders and officers could be seen turning their backs to the mayor and the police commissioner, William J. Bratton, as they walked past, in a video taken at the hospital where the two held a news conference on Saturday.
A written message from Edward Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, addressed the mayor directly. “Mayor de Blasio,” it read in part, “the blood of these two officers is clearly on your hands.” (more)
