NYPD Union Chief: Cops in Danger Because de Blasio Statements Against Police

Tuesday on NewsMax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” the president of the NYPD’s Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, Pat Lynch, said Mayor Bill de Blasio’s is creating an atmosphere that is putting NYPD officers in danger “because he keeps making statements against police officers.”

“It just goes to show the dangerous situation New York City police officers are in each and every day because of the atmosphere on the street where every interaction now turns into a challenge where the perps are emboldened to fire their weapons at police officers,” Lynch said. “What [De Blasio] also did is he spends weeks, if not months, praising protesters on the street who were given a vile, deadly message unchecked.”
