I Thought This Was Incredibly Disrespectful


The funeral for one of the two New York officers slain execution style was held over the weekend. As fellow officers watched the funeral on a big screen outside the services, they turned their backs on the Mayor as he spoke inside because the officers do not believe he has been supportive enough.

Newsflash guys: That funeral wasn't about you.

Really?

I thought it was completely appropriate!

They turn their backs on cop killers when they are walked thru the precinct and they believe the killings are because of the mayors remarks there for he is a cop killer!
It is a sign of solidarity to their brothers and sisters showing they will not stand and recognize a cop killer it is not about them trying to get publicity!

OH... this was disrespectful, but the NYC officials (mayor mostly) who did not one thing to stop the chants of "What do we want?" DEAD COPS
"When do we want it?" NOW!
wasn't disrespectful?
You freakin stupid liberals!

If the mayor wants respect, then he needs to do his job! Those people were not only inciting riots, they were shouting terroristic threats in the streets of NYC and nothing was done! Nothing was even said to chastise their behavior - which means it was condoned behavior. Those were not peaceful protests! You go stand out in the streets and shout that you want dead cops now in the streets and see what happens to you!

Political "correctness" has only allowed stupid people and their bad behavior more acceptance as "normal." Fact is - stupid is still stupid and wrong is still wrong.

Well, unless the term "illegal" is used and the dems are still trying to make that definition change!

Green, Wouldn't it be great to belong to a Brotherhood instead of acting like a hood?

You have to ear respect to get and he's just a thug himself!!

So rioting, vandalism and looting was the respectful thing to do? You gave that a pass after the thug in Ferguson was buried.

Personally, I think the mayor’s attendance was the "disrespectful" part of this funeral. He didn't know the cop and his words and actions directly led to this man’s death.

God bless those officers!

Is it entirely too simplistic to believe that if Daniel Pantaleo had been rightfully indicted for Eric Garner's choking death, then we wouldn't have had the deaths of Liu and Ramos?

I agree with you, BG.

Never cease to be amazed by the number of unthinking rednecks that read your blog and comment so vociferously in opposition to your remarks.

Bill de Blasio made it all about him when, as mayor of NYC, declared NYPD was full of racist cops, that went back centuries and they all needed retraining. Oh, if all it took was "training" to rid a person of racism, perhaps race-hustlers like Sharpton, Obama, Holder, Farrakhan, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Charles Rangel and several more, most of you don't recognize, could be cured of spreading the hate and misinformation that keeps them in the limelight and in power because stupid people just keep being stupid.

“Our police keep us safe, and yet there's been, as I said, not just decades of problems, a history of centuries of racism that under gird this reality. We can transcend that. We believe, in New York City, re-training our entire police force [that] it's going to make a huge difference.”
~Bill de Blasio

If you look at the photos of the officers, with their backs to de Blasio, you'll note, they're of all ethnicities. Imagine that, it's a silent protest and it's not a race thing, it's a RESPECT thing. De Blasio didn't just lose the respect of police officers all across the US, he threw it away. Liberals need to learn, THEIR words have consequences. Police officers, nation wide, are teaching de Blasio that lesson.

BTW, Barry, where's your post about the racist protesters who continued to LOUDLY and disruptively protest at the wake and funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos. The NYC Justice League planned a protest for Saturday, even after having been asked to cease protests, until the officers had been laid to rest. Barry, if you want to prance around on a high horse, you need to take up better causes and keep better company.

Guess if you can't come up with a competent remark to what is being said, it is easy to turn to insults huh? Kind of like how people are quick to call us racist for daring to speak out against the President!

Anonymous said...

10:54, I disagree with BG on this one. Does that make me an "unthinking redneck?"

It's interesting (perplexing, perhaps) that you think multiple "unthinking rednecks" would defend NYC police officers.

It's also interesting that you've concluded that "unthinking rednecks" can read.

You're obviously much smarter than the rest of us. So why do you come here? Is it to "be amazed" at comments from rednecks?

YGBSM.

If it was disrespectful to Mayor de Blasio, then it appears their message was accurately conveyed.

Not saying they were or weren't correct to equate his earlier remarks with inciting or condoning murder or violence wagainst police, but certainly they have no less right to express their viewpoint vis-a-vis a perceived grievance than the cadres of professional hooligan protesters fomenting violent and destructive riots in Ferguson, Berkley and elsewhere.

Disrespectful? Cry me a river...

Great joke, BG. There for a minute you had everybody thinking you were serious.

I laughed thru the whole thing. Really. Because it was funny.

Relax folks, it was just a couple of cops. Its not like they were doctors, or something important.

CT said...

I guess I fall under the redneck category--I believe it was entirely appropriate for the NYPD's officers to turn their backs on this thug!

And, to Mzchief-AMEN, sister!

wordkyle, can you explain how you get weak minded or angry from "I never like wordkyle"?

I mean, aside from thinking too much of your own words, and all.

Thank you Mzchief.

"Newsflash guys: That funeral wasn't about you."

Newsflash, Barry: That funeral shouldn't have been about the NYC Mayor, either. Those officers were there to show solidarity with their fallen brother.

Why do you think the Mayor was there?

@10:54:

Based on your comments I can infer that you are a moron. However, I'm still not able to generalize that anyone agreeing with Barry is also a moron.

Blasio was booed today by the newest members of the New York Police Department as he delivered a speech at the academy graduation ceremony.

It is not worth debating with you because you never change your position or acknowledge the irrefutable points made by those that disagree with you.

And you give yourself high praise for causing confusion. Not sure why you think that.

My, my. Aren't we the pious one.

The protest isn't a respect thing. It's a "we don't want any additional oversight" thing. They might get caught with their dirty cop hands in the cookie jar.

I'm amazed that MzChief would support a union like this.

I think our counselor is actually missing the entire point of the NYPD turning their backs.

It was meant to be disrespectful. That's the point. We have no respect for you, so we will show you our backs.

It's an informal vote of non-confidence in the mayor.

So, while most things will baffle Mr. Green, he's actually correct, but not for the reason he thinks. It was disrespectful, because that's the purpose of deliberately turning your back towards someone.

Stay Classy

You tolerate thugs actions and look the otherway,never condemning their actions.

When cops turn their back on a puke of a mayor you condemn them.

Gawd, you're the most bleeding heart liberal I've ever seen.
