VIDEO: Banner Calling for “More Dead Cops” Hung from NY Overpass

A banner hung on an Albany, NY, overpass Sunday called for “More Dead Cops” and bore the encircled “A” symbol used by anarchists.

The banner hung on the overpass for an unknown length of time. It was removed shortly after police received a call about it around 5:00 p.m.

“They were ignorant. They put the sign on the overpass, but it’s insignificant. The police are resilient,” said retired Troy Police Cpt. John Cooney.

Others in the community expressed disgust over the incident.

“It’s absolute horror. We’re talking about people that put their lives on the line every day for strangers for not a lot of money, and they’re getting so disrespected,” resident Johnathan Falk told News Channel 10.
