Biden to Attend Fallen NYPD Officer's Funeral

December 24, 2014  | 

Vice President Joe Biden will attend the funeral of NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos on Saturday, the White House said Tuesday.

“The president has asked Vice President Biden to attend the service for Officer Rafael Ramos and is grateful that the vice president and Dr. Jill Biden will be traveling to New York City to attend the service,” a White House spokesman said in a statement.

President Obama is on vacation in Hawaii.

The funeral will be held at Christ Tabernacle Church in Glendale, Queens, at 10 a.m. Saturday, the New York Post reports.

I would not want Obama, Biden, Holder, the Mayor or quite a few other cop hating destroyers of this nation attending my funeral. They have intentionally set back race relations in this country 50 years and the BS that has flowed from their mouths contributed to the deaths of two of NYPD's finest.

I'd keep anyone from this administration from these funerals if I were family of the victims.

I agree, its really ashamed that it has gotten to this point but this administration is complicit in the instigation of these protests and the killing of police, boarder agents and other LEOs, as well as doing more investigating of police agencies rather then supporting them,. Their "action" on the side of protesters and anti police types (Holder included) as we;ll as the inaction when they should act on behalf of Law & Order. All make them uninvited guts to any Officers funeral. LEOs should all turn their back on any Obama administration rep that shows up as they di with their Mayor. Show the same level of disrespect that this administration and the cops haters show Law Enforcement.

Its all a game for the White house and show the public that they back L.E.O.s when they don't and having Law- Enforcement standing in the background when they talk.
