    While I would agree wit you that a funeral isn't the right time and place for protest (unlike the Westboro idiots), I understand the LEOs position on this, and support that position.

    What's the saddest to me is that a solemn time of a funeral, being there to honor a fallen fellow officer, there in support of that officer's family, the LEOs were put in a position where they felt that had to protest de Blasio.

    We are seeming to forget that it was de Blasio's actions and words alone which has causing this tear in the relationship between the mayor and his police force.

    I usually support these kinds of acts of disobedience and disrespect for authority, but a funeral is not the place to grand stand.

    Someone in a position of power basically implies that people in a certain profession are a racist trigger happy thugs who attack and murder black people and you actually have to ask that poll question about people in that profession turning their backs on that politician? That person is power stirred the pot, he is no different than Al Sharpton or some other race parasite who stirs up racial animosity. The mayor should have had their backs.But instead he planted his lips on the cocks of race hustlers and gave a huge middle finger to the police. Would this poll question been asked if the police turned their back on Al Sharpton Jessie Jackson or some other race parasite who helped stir the pot?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why not hold the mayor to a higher standard?

    Relatively speaking, 50 to 100 is an extremely small number.

    In the sense of protesting, yeah, I can see that.

    In the sense that they are calling for someone's or a group's murder, then quite worrisome, I'd say.

    Then sure, you deal with them. However, you directly accused another poster of supporting protesters chanting for dead cops.

    Well what were the "words and actions"?
    Again in this link it says he "has blood on his hands"? But what did he do? Nowhere did they say anything he did that lead to this "blood on his hands"...

    Same as above? WTF did he do?

    Same as above?W What the hell did he do?
