    I think it was a great thing to do. It shows that they united as one against a man who didn't stick up for law enforcement when he should have.

    If he simply showed up because he always shows up to police funerals, and/or basically "influenced" his way up there by pushing the issue himself without being offered, then I can fully understand the cops action here and while I wouldn't think it's the most mature thing to do, it's a move I can't really blame them for.

    If he normally doesn't show up to every police funeral, but showed up for this one and made a push to speak, then I actively support and applaud the cops as in such a case it's not an instance of them immaturily making a funeral into a political statement, but rather them denouncing the mayors attempt to utilize the funeral as a political tool.



    Care to quote what foundation your accusational question is built upon? What exactly has the OP said that indicates he supports chanting for dead cops?



    Who in this thread prior to your post made that point? Who?
    It was suggested that the reasoning for VP Biden showing up was politically motivated, if not, why else would Mr. Biden have attended? Because of the Obama gaffe concerning what he said about police being held accountable for their actions?

    If we can't hold police to a higher standard, then what?

    Biden is entirely irrelevant to my thoughts here. Biden wasn't the one speaking, the mayor was. Biden wasn't the one who the cops turned their backs to, the Mayor was. What Biden was doing there is an entirely seperate discussin in my mind.

    I was expecting a better response than equating LEO to criminals.

    Clearly the mayor didn't do that, or at least not enough of that, 'cause the cops are pissed off.
    Some people won't take yes for an answer. You can't rationalize with the insane. The fact that the turned their back on the mayor, who had a right to be there but not Biden whose only presence was political, shows that this was a disgusting stunt. They NYPD are spoiled children. It's remarkable how many conservatives are supporting a corrupt union. I thought they hated those

    They are held to a higher standard than any criminal. What an absurd rationale and flat out lie.

    To me, a higher standard means being better than the people you're trying to catch, note that some (cops) not all, fail miserably at holding to a higher standard. Why expect a better response from someone you do not know and have never met, this is the internet you must realize.

    No, not really. I judge cops by which they treat people, speaking from experience, as a youngster growing up in Chicago, I know how bad, and good cops are and can be when I meet one, by their demeanor when they approach me, or another person.

    The bad cops I have seen are the ones who ask questions like, what are you doing in this neighborhood, and bad cops would search the car w/o warrants or probable cause because of being in what they define is the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time of day. Probable cause back then (35 years ago) was having a tail light out, or driving a beater car.

    The worst cop that I can think of these days is Joe Arpaio, the racial profiler himself.
