NYPD’s Cop Union: ‘We Have Become a Wartime Police Department’ after Two Officers Slain


The New York Police Department has declared “war” after two officers were killed Saturday in their squad car while taking part in an anti-terrorism drill by a gunmen said to be taking revenge for the death of Eric Garner.
The accused Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who reportedly took his own life after the killings, is said to be connected to the Black Guerilla Family prison gang, who police recently warned were gunning for police.
Saying “There’s blood on many hands,” the head of the NYPD’s police union, Patrick Lynch, placed much of the blame on the Mayor’s Office and formally asked Mayor Bill de Blasio not to attend the funerals of the slain officers for appearing overly sympathetic to Eric Garner protests.
“Those that incited violence on this street under the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did everyday… We tried to warn it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated. That blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor.”
Police turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio as they gathered to show respects for Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu outside the hospital where they were pronounced dead. When De Blasio stated, “We’re all in this together,” one officer was heard retorting, “No, we’re not.”
