I would think the decision to turn your back on the mayor would be an expression covered under the 1st Amendment of free speech and protected. Who ordered the officers not to do it and under what authority? As far as I know those attending are doing so on their own time and are not required to be there.

    Bratton, the police commissioner, told them in a memo they should not, explicitly saying (as in, with actual words) this was not an order, and he was not threatening discipline upon anyone who did not do as he asked. Which either makes him a poor liar or unwilling to put his full force behind something obviously strongly encouraged by the mayor and his political advisers.

      No, it shows he appreciates the limits of his authority – unlike the extremist leftist Mayor.

      DeBlasio reappointed the judge who released those two thugs charged with terrorist threats against police with no bail, only days later. He hates the police, always has, always will, and is determined to let them know it.

      Screw him, and screw you.

        To amend, he said he “issued no mandate” and threatened no discipline. Yeah, well. We’ll see what he does since they turned their backs anyway, won’t we.

        Truly I wonder why I bother. How in the world did you take what I wrote as being on his side, to the point you say, screw him and screw me? How?

        But as this is not about me, to hell with it. Goodnight.

I thought lefties insisted that dissent was patriotic?

They were ordered not to turn their backs? That is a civic obscenity. And yes, it was an order if it was signed by the police commissioner, regardless of how it was worded.

As for the widow, who prompted her to ask them not to turn their backs?

The mayor has some responsibility for this assassination.

Interesting to read all the tweets from progressives who are angry at the NYPD rank and file for their ‘disrespect’ to de Blasio.

Question for these progressives: since you’re the ones who believe in a larger and all-encompassing state, just how exactly do you plan to enforce all your laws and rules if you don’t have the police on your side?

Brilliant, progressives, simply brilliant: you’ve upset the one group you NEED to have standing with you in the end.

The leftists like DeBlasio are always on the side of the thugs and criminals.

Don’t like it? Resign! Act like a man!

So cops turning their back on the mayor who doesn’t support them is “childish behavior”. What do you call all the die-ins? The “hands up” gestures? That is what is childish.
