Hundreds of New York City police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he spoke at slain officer Rafael Ramos' funeral today. The cops were watching on large screens outside the Queens church where de Blasio was speaking. Police made a similar protest gesture against the New York City mayor at a press conference earlier this week.
“There is blood on many hands tonight — those that incited violence on the streets under the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York police officers did every day. That blood on the hands starts on the steps of City Hall, in the office of the mayor," PBA president Patrick Lynch said after the December 21 gesture.
