A lone gunman originally from Brooklyn NY, came back to Brooklyn’s Bedford Stuyvesant area to exact his revenge on police officers for the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY in the summer of 2014. The gunman approached two officers sitting a patrol car and opened fire striking both in the head. Both officers died from the assault.
In an amazing display of childish behavior, insubordinate members of the NYPD turned their backs on their boss, Mayor DeBlasio of NYC.
Just in case the level of whining is not clear. Listen to the reasons for retaliation against police be blamed on everyone but the cowardly perpetrators of criminal acts on unarmed civilians themselves. In all of the situations which caused protests throughout the country, the police criminals and those who protect them from culpability are not mentioned. Pat Lynch is an embarrassment and an example of what is wrong with police unions. He should be fired immediately or forced to resign for conduct unbecoming of a person in his position. His presence is a symptom of a larger problem in the mentality of police officers which bring about conflict with the community.
