They did?The cops, in unison, across the nation, and indeed across to other nations as well, react to de Basio's words that they were thrown under the bus by the mayor.
And so this has came to "meh my opinion doesnt matter, we must respect my authoritahhhh!"?
Why should the police be upset by this? All he did was 1.)speak to the factual situations in this country 2.)HE PRAISED THE NYPD..... '
What is? Speaking to the reality? Seriously? What did he do!?This is going to poison this vitally important relationship, between of the office of the mayor and the police force, and, as makes no difference, renders this particular mayor as ineffective and incapable of properly discharging the duties of his elected office. Perhaps he should resign.
Sorry. Sometimes facts our facts... If you or the hundred of police officers who decided to turn their backs is not recognizing basic facts that he spoke to a couple months ago is "disrespect" then again we have a bigger problem on our hands....Frankly, I think he shouldn't have been showing off his progressive / liberal cred in this instance, he should have been a leader and backed up his police force, or perhaps not said anything at all.
Because its REALITY....Why did he wade in, into a no win situation for him, and say what he did?
Gain? I dont think he was thinking of "gain". IT WAS REALITY OF WHAT HAPPENS.Where's his gain for saying what he did? He has none that I can see. How foolish is that?
