NYPD Cops Are Following De Blasio Around Country To Tell People How Awful He Is

NYPD officers traveled to Detroit to protest New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's appearance at the Presidential debate.

Detroit, MI – About 40 New York Police Department (NYPD) officers followed New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to the Democratic Presidential debate in Detroit on Wednesday night to protest his appearance and demand he return to the city to finish contract negotiations.

“Can’t run the city, can’t run the country” and “Mayor de Blasio, no friend of labor!” the officers chanted outside the Fox Theatre where the second round of debates was being moderated by CNN, FOX News reported.

The police, who were protesting their mayor’s appearance in the debate on behalf of the New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA), said that NYPD officers have been out of contract for two years and that de Blasio wanted to give them raises that fell well below current inflation.

“We’re here to tell our mayor that he should come back and finish the job that he ran for,” NYPD Officer Joseph Alejandro told Fox News. “He ran to be the mayor of New York City and now he’s doing this run, we don’t know why but he’s got a lot of unfinished work in this city and one of those things is he should be negotiating with us.”

“He keeps running away from us... so we’re going to chase him as much as we have to, we’re going to make sure he knows that he should be back at the table and do his job,” Officer Alejandro said.

The mayor has had a contentious relationship with his police department since he took office, according to FOX News.

The first Democratic presidential debate in June did nothing to improve that relationship when de Blasio told America that he had counseled his biracial son Dante on “how to protect himself in the streets of our city… including the fact that he has to take special caution because there have been too many tragedies between young men and our police.”

In the month since then, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it would not be charging NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner, causing outrage in the community.

In response, de Blasio announced that going forward, officers would be disciplined before investigations were completed.

And more recently, criminals have been dumping buckets of water on police officers responding to emergency calls in various parts of the city.

On Wednesday morning, New York State Assemblyman Mike LiPetri, of Long Island, announced he was proposing legislation that would make it a Class E felony, punishable by up to five years in prison, to throw liquid on a police officer.

During the press conference to announce the bill, LiPetri called on de Blasio to bring the matter up on stage during the debate that night and show his support for law enforcement.

It didn’t happen.

Instead, the mayor became the target of more than one opponent for not having fired Officer Pantaleo in relation to the death of Eric Garner.

Presidential hopeful Julian Castro, who served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 2014 to 2017, was the first to invoke Eric Garner’s name when he bragged about being the only candidate to have a “Police Reform Plan.”

Castro called for a national use of force standard and putting an end to qualified immunity for officers.

Then he quoted Garner’s famous last words: “I can’t breathe.”

“He knew what he was doing – that he was killing Eric Garner – and yet he has not been brought to justice. That police officer should be off the street,” Castro said.

The CNN moderator asked de Blasio why Officer Pantaleo had not been fired.

The mayor avoided answering the question and blamed federal prosecutors for dragging their feet.

Then he said he thought the family would get justice in the next 30 days because of the policy changes he was making with regard to investigations.

“There will never be another tragedy, there will never be another Eric Garner because we’re changing fundamentally how we police,” de Blasio vowed.

Those remarks were not the kind of support the NYPD officers wanted to hear.

The mayor’s Presidential primary opponent, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), had no problem answering the question the mayor avoided.

“He should be fired. He should be fired now…,” Gillibrand said, and gave de Blasio a scathing look. “If I was the mayor, I’d fire him. But as President, I would make sure that we had a full investigation, that the report would be made public, and if I wasn’t satisfied, we would have a consent decree.”

Gosh, I wonder why the police are having such a difficult time filling positions across the country with all the support they get from idiots like this wanting to run the country. It seems most of them want to continue on with the way Obama felt about the police.

Deblasio is nothing but a loser. The entire NYPD should make sure this liberal Azzhole never gets elected to any office again. Watch yer back and stay within the limits of the law, BUT push it to the limits! I know you all know people who has your back and would enjoy watching ole Bill squirm under mass protests of his lack of support for the thin blue line!

Organize in a back room, move to a hall, then to an arena. Get the scathing word out on Deblasio. Time to get this POS out of office.

Good Luck and Stat Safe

"The CNN moderator asked de Blasio why Officer Pantaleo had not been fired." Because he didn't break the law? Because Eric Garner broke the law, and then resisted arrest, and then fought the police until his poor physique resulted in his death? Because terminating an officer for doing his job is wrong? Oh wait, that's right, the democratic party (in recent years anyway) has been anti-police and pro-criminal. Can't get those votes if you actually stand up for the cops for doing what is right

How are people so blind to the fact these "Clowns" running for D-POTUS ARE the ones for so much hate and anemosity in this country under their political leadership? They've NEVER changed their "spots", they just "came out of their [rainbow] closet!

Remember how Michael Dukakis was a frontrunner years ago and it looked as if he could be our next President? Then he got into trouble with law enforcement. I can't recall the details, whether it was some past action or comments he made, but that sunk his campaign, and rightfully so. He didn't have a snowball's chance in hell with that opposition. Average people like police.

Any pushback against anti-police politicians and administrators is a good thing. We have remained silent for far too long, and look what it gets us. 20 anti-law enforcement idiots running for president, supported by the MSM. I agree that de Blasio will not get selected or elected, but the message is not just about him - it's about law and order and the protection of civil society by the thin blue line. It is time to fight back.

At least Gillebrand admits she'd be a dictator! She said so openly when she said if she didn't like the outcome of an investigation involving a police officer, she'd change it to suit her poisonous beliefs.

Just heard on TV that the fate of the officer in question hinges on the decision of Okneel...so he's gone. And, best of all, D'blowme came out BEFORE the decision was reached and basically insisted that the copper be fired. This is pathetic. AND a GREAT time to find a new PD to work for!

DiBlasio is going to terminate Pantaleo and then the feces will REALLY hit the fan. All of those ignorant Dumbocrats at the debate running their pandering mouths about firing Pantaleo must not be cognizant of the facts of the autopsy, which stated that there was no injury to Garner's throat/trachea consistent with the application of a chokehold. You can't choke someone to death without damaging the throat or trachea. Garner died because he fought the cops making a lawful arrest when he was morbidly obese and suffered from hypertension, diabetes, and asthma. He could have died from running up a flight of stairs, much less the exertion of a drag-out fight.

So, these officers are complaining about Mayor de Blasio and whining about how they haven't gotten a raise and need more money, yet they are following Mayor de Blasio around the country. Something's fishy about that. Anyway, they can do what they want, it's a free country. Personally, I don't think that Mayor de Blasio can effectively run the country as president, I have nothing against the man, but the office of the presidency is a demanding job and I'm not sure he is up to the task no matter how ready he says he is.
