VIDEO: NYPD Slayings Widen Rift Between Police and Mayor

Mayor Bill de Blasio got a chilly reception from NYPD officers at Woodhull Hospital Saturday after two officers were shot to death in Brooklyn.

In video posted on YouTube, police officers can be seen silent, with their backs turned to the mayor as he walks by.

Following the shooting of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in Bedford-Stuyvesant Saturday afternoon, police union officials blasted the mayor, saying the blood of the two officers were on his hands, CBS News reports.

Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch and de Blasio have been locked in a public battle over treatment of officers following the grand jury’s decision not to indict an officer in the deathof Eric Garner.

Now the mayor urges people to come forward and contact the police whenever they see or hear information that jeopardizes public safety. I seem to remember only a short time ago him pandering to his base saying he had cautioned his son to be afraid of the police or words to that effect. I guess in the mayor's mind, the two officers that died makes all the difference now as far as supporting and trusting the police. Or maybe the truth is the mayor is a pandering left wing politician who got a dose of what his previous anti police rhetoric has helped bring to fruition.
