    Why did all these Police Officers turn their back during Mayor De Blasio's speech?

    Hundreds of New York Police Officers turn their backs on Mayor De Blasio: https://bluelivesmatter.blue/back-ma...ilias-funeral/

    Could the reason be that the NYPD does not think that Mayor De Blasio has their backs?

    Deblasio had his name legally changed to appeal to Italian voters.

    To exploit a funeral for politics?

    The NYPD has an agenda, just like DiBlasio does, just like anyone else does.

    The NYPD (as a pretty strong political body with a very powerful union) acts as if it is beyond reproach. It is often at odds with the mayor's office. If the mayor doesn't march in lockstep with the NYPD, that mayor is often publicly disrespected by the NYPD.

    It's pretty cheese of them to politicize the funeral of a fallen officer, but I can't say it's surprising.

    Typical Democrap response, circling the wagons to defend a scumbag like Wilhelm "de" Blowhard.

    I see that at no point did you actually address or attempt to refute anything I said. 0/10. See me after class.

    Cops hide behind their blue wall and attack anyone who tries to hold them accountable to the law and for their actions. You can make a mortal enemy out of the police union simply by stating that they should wear body cameras or be responsible for the unjustified killings of innocent people. That they'd politicize a funeral of one of their own is rather pathetic but also not at all surprising.

    Thank you for posting something other than a facebook link.

    Regardless of the reasons for the NYPD actions, it's quite sad to politicize a funeral. They should be paying their respects to the family & remembering their fallen comrade. If they think Mayor De Blasio's policies are responsible for the death of their comrades, they should bring up the issue & protest. Just not at the funeral.

    But that's only my opinion and I fully support their right to protest whenever they damn please (as long as no one is put in danger of course).

    What you said was not worthy of debate. I thought I made that quite clear.

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

    Wilhelm "de" Blowhard was in Europe during the funeral.

    Do try to keep up.
