At the funeral for murdered NYPD officer, Miosotis Familia, Mayor de Blasio rose to give a speech, but the assembled cops were so disgusted with his recent behavior that they turned their backs on him in a show of protest.
The day after Officer Familia was slain, de Blasio thought that the smartest thing to do would be to fly out to Hamburg and join the protesters at the G20 Marches. The same protests at which more than 500 police officers are reported to have been attacked and injured. The same protests that are billed as “Anti-Capitalist”.
Why the mMayor thought that this was appropriate is anyone’s guess. Clearly, the NYPD does not think this was the best use of his time. This kind of reaction could very well spell the end of de Blasio’s political career. Despite what the media like to promote, the people of New York are very proud of the NYPD…It’s a shame that the Mayor isn’t.
As reported in Young Cons:
Today was the funeral for slain NYPD officer Miosotis Familia. Familia was assassinated by a man last week who harbored anti-police feelings. The man, Alexander Bonds, was killed by police after he killed Familia.
Some 25,000 people were in attendance inside and outside of the World Changers Church in the Bronx as Familia was remembered.
But when Mayor Bill de Blasio rose to give remarks, it did not go over well.
So when he stood to make remarks today, several hundred members of the NYPD turned their back on him.
