NYPD Challenges De Blasio with Banner

The New York Daily News is reporting that the feud between City Hall and the NYPD has reached new heights. A plane flying high over the Hudson River was spotted pulling a banner that said “De Blasio, Our Backs Have Turned to You”, referencing the recent spectacle of dozens of NYPD officers turning their backs on the mayor as he entered a room.

Blogger John Cardillo posted a statement on his website that said a “coalition of NYPD cops, Detectives, supervisors hundreds strong” had endorsed the banner and message decrying de Blasio’s leadership.

It is our opinion that Mayor de Blasio’s dangerous and irresponsible comments about his and his wife’s concern for their son’s safety at the hands of the NYPD fueled the flames that led to civil unrest, and potentially to the deaths of PO Wenjian Liu and PO Rafael Ramos, as well as the continued threats against NYPD personnel. The Mayor shows us no respect, and encourages the public to follow his lead.
