VIDEO: De Blasio Calls for Suspension of Protests, Politics to Respect Ambushed Officers' Families

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio today urged people to set aside politics and protests to support and comfort the families of the two slain NYPD officers who are “suffering unspeakable pain.”

It’s time for those of different viewpoints to “put aside political debates, put aside protests, put aside everything we will talk about in due time while two families try to piece their lives back together,” he said at a gathering of the Police Athletic League.

The remarks were the mayor’s first public comments since the police union said he had blood on his hands over the Saturday shooting deaths of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. De Blasio avoided a direct confrontation over the incendiary rhetoric, ABC News reports.

Too little, too late, Billie Boy.

People should protest the mayor's office.

Am I the only one that reads this, "Mayor encourages the resumption of protests against police following the funerals he facilitated"?
