The New York Times served a cold dish to the NYPD for their childish behavior at Mayor Bill De Blasio.
Pretty much, the image of the NYPD is going down badly and everybody knows it. Check it out:
With these acts of passive-aggressive contempt and self-pity, many New York police officers, led by their union, are squandering the department’s credibility, defacing its reputation, shredding its hard-earned respect. They have taken the most grave and solemn of civic moments — a funeral of a fallen colleague — and hijacked it for their own petty look-at-us gesture. In doing so, they also turned their backs on Mr. Ramos’s widow and her two young sons, and others in that grief-struck family.
These are disgraceful acts, which will be compounded if anyone repeats the stunt at Officer Liu’s funeral on Sunday.
I'm glad they're being called out for their foolishness.
