Could Bill Clinton Negotiate Peace Between NYPD Unions and Mayor?

January 08, 2015  | 

NYPD union leaders think the rift between the rank and file and Mayor Bill de Blasio is so bad, it can only be healed by one man — ex-President Bill Clinton — and police brass are receptive to the idea, sources told the New York Post.

The startling proposal, made during a meeting between Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and the NYPD’s five union chiefs on Wednesday, came as an officer shot earlier this week while responding to an armed robbery got a hero’s send-off upon being released from the hospital.

The Clinton solution was floated by detectives union head Michael Palladino, the New York Post reports.

"Palladino said the mayor needs someone like Bill Clinton to act as an intermediary," one source said.

A source said Clinton was an ideal choice because "he’s a statesman; he’s well-respected; he’s a good mediator and he was a pro-law enforcement president."

Clinton has not commented on whether he is interested in the job, according to the New York Daily News.

There should be NO negotiations. The mayor is a communist, cop hating A$$ H01e and Clinton is not much better. It is time not only for our brothers and sisters @ NYPD to say enough is enough but all LEO's in every big city run by politically correct puppets of the Marxist in chief need to do the same.

Why would anybody in law enforcement want "Slick Willy" to go and talk to this sycophantic excuse of a mayor? Clinton is every bit as sleazy as de Blasio. He's just polished his performance and does his dirty deeds beyond the view of the law abiding public.

I could think of many living former politicians and few dead ones I'd resurrect to help give di Blasio and bit of an attitude check out behind the wood shed.

The best thing all of the NYPD unions can do is to start working right this second to make sure di Blasio is a one term mayor with no chance of getting elected to any other public office in New York. (Not Even Dog Catcher).

I agree with Retired Chief and martyb. Sadly politicians like De Blasio don't care about the cops. he shouldn't have been elected mayor from the start.Most urban areas (cities) have many liberals in them and vote liberal. The NYPD officers did what they thought was right in turning their backs on De Blasio, in a show of disrespect and how he sided with the anti police protestors. DeBlasio is no better than any other liberal big city mayor.
