NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton’s Betrayal

Letter on Bratton’s Betrayal


Police Commissioner Bill Bratton remonstrated against the police turning their backs on de Blasio’s eulogy for Officer Rafael Ramos during his funeral.  He said, “I think it was very inappropriate at that event….That funeral was held to honor Officer Ramos.”

What Bratton doesn’t realize is that he is demeaning and denigrating his fellow officers by backing de Blasio.  But then again, he was always de Blasio’s little toady.  He backed him on his race-driven, naïve reduction of Stop & Frisk.

Bratton was once a good cop.  Unfortunately, he was bought off by the political establishment and presents himself as part of the problem more than the solution.
