The best New York City is again fuding with City Hall. Hundreds of NYPD police officers brought them back to Mayor Bill de Palacio during the funeral of ousted officer Myosotis Familia.
The incident took place Tuesday (11 July) in protest against the mayor’s decision to travel to Germany, one day after the 12-year-old was executed in New York City. The New York Daily News reported that de Palacio had been criticized earlier by the president of the charity association Patrick Lynch. The pictures show several hundred officers standing with their backs to the Church of the World Variables in the Bronx, where the mayor’s speech was playing on a public address system in the Great Congress, the Daily News reported.
De Palacio was shot by police unions after she decided to go to Hamburg, Germany, to protest the G20 summit. A spokesman for the mayor said he made the trip after learning that it would not conflict with the funeral of Familia. However, some police officers said that Placio should stay in the city to support the family. “Twelve people have been involved in a false debate set up by the media and those seeking to politicize the death of investigators,” a spokesman for the mayor said.
The head of the charity sergeant Ed Mullins told Daily News he was not surprised by the public’s protest by the officers. “The atmosphere with the mayor and the police is certainly tight,” Mullins said. “When you look at how there goes and protests, while the police here are fighting with protesters every day, you go:” What do you do? “. “I spoke with hundreds of policemen today and they had about it with the mayor and the police commissioner and their policies, and they do not feel that someone has their backs, it is very hypocritical.”
