    Hope most of you never need a cop.

    De Blasio went to a protest in Germany instead of attending the vigil for Officer Miosotis, who was murdered sitting in her patrol car. It has nothing to do with what any of you said. (except Ballantine)
    He deserves to be shunned.

    What ? Bill de Blasio was in Europe during the funeral ? I guess a hologram spoke at the funeral and all these stories are FAKE NEWS :

    Hundreds of NYPD officers turn their back on de Blasio as he speaks at funeral for executed cop before her three kids give heartbreaking eulogy

    Bill de Blasio mourns murdered officer and says NYPD 'needs our support'

    Thousands mourn fallen New York police officer

    Do try to keep up.

    It's pretty cheese of them to politicize the funeral of a fallen officer, but I can't say it's surprising.
    Seems it was only a short time ago De Blasio wouldn't step up to the plate when the cops caught all the flack for enforcing De Blasio's stupid "loosies" policy. Garner ended up dead because De Blasio was pissed off about losing a few dollars in tax revenues.

    Then add in a choke hold.........

    Whether de Blasio should have done whatever is irrelevant. A funeral is an inappropriate place for political protest.

    i do appreciate where you are coming from

    but as i recall, Obama was a featured funeral speaker after the charleston (Mother Emmanuel) church killings

    and that appeared to be a political protest against such murders

    which then tells us political protest at funerals is acceptable, if the issues being protested are found acceptable

That they'd politicize a funeral of one of their own is rather pathetic but also not at all surprising.
    Cops politicize a funeral: who would do such a thing?

    Obama politicized several funerals: what a courageous fighter for the people.

    Maybe you're in the wrong class. Perhaps you could benefit from some continuing education in remedial English?
    Sorry, pal.

    The "loosies policy" is a state law, not a city one. But of course, that law is not what killed Eric Garner. Lousy cops being lousy cops is what killed Eric Garner.
