But while city leaders and New Yorkers mainly ridiculed the threatened cuts, the move was immediately celebrated by some of the city’s police unions — including the Police Benevolent Association, whose longtime boss Pat Lynch recently endorsed Trump.
Ed Mullins, the president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, also said he that he agreed with the Attorney General’s announcement.
“Barr is correct we are living in criminal anarchy,” he told Gothamist over text message. “People are afraid and the police are unable to protect them.”
Asked if he was concerned about the impact on New Yorkers if the cash-strapped city lost billions in federal funding, Mullins, a Long Island resident, said the ends would justify the means.
“Of course I’m concerned but this will force regular New Yorkers to vote out the people who did this,” he wrote.
From Joe.My.God., “Mullins has been involved in multiple racist incidents and has taken to appearing on Fox with a QAnon mug perched within view”.
There is more at the link above. Notice what the police unions are really doing and saying. They are acting like no one has the right to control them, and in fact they are refusing to be controlled by civilian authority. The authorities speak for the local government but the police now think they are the local government or at least equal to it. The police have become thugs. Greedy thugs. The police have become occupying armies, controlling forces for the wealthy status quo. I am serious, if we do not defund and defang these renegade cops and their unions will will continue to be a police state with only the rights they wish to give us as they will be above the laws. Hugs
