Thousands of city police officers turned their backs Sunday as they watched Mayor Bill de Blasio eulogize an officer shot dead with his partner, repeating a stinging display of scorn for the mayor despite entreaties from the police commissioner not to do so.
What a bunch of goons. I hope New Yorkers turn their backs on every police officer they encounter, especially if the officer is speaking to them. Backs is all they deserve. Seriously, putting on a tantrum at the funeral of a fallen officer? These cops have lost their bearings. And why? Because they don't want to get real and face their racism. Well, boohoo. They have to.
I'm curious to see where this will go from here. Are the cops still refusing to arrest anyone? Has NYC become a lawless place because the police won't do their jobs until they're assured that they are above the law and can continue to abuse and kill people of color with impunity? This mess is being caused by one thing only: white racist cops.
Any thoughts out there in Peanut Land?
