De Blasio can pay officers handsomely and still you will have Lynch in front of a podium upset that the mayor isn't "supportive" of the NYPD.

What Lynch wants is for the mayor to blow kisses and tell him how right they always are even when they are wrong at times. The police officers are losing that privilege and that is why he is coming out with these ridiculous statements. And those of you who agree with Lynch are apathetic to any nuance discussion surrounding you rights as a citizen and policing. I'd be sympathetic to the PBA if they were upset about something like no retroactive pay or healthcare costs but it's not. It's all politics.
Ok lets break your statement down. The PBA is not impartial. They are not there to be advocates of the general public. The PBA is there to defend its cops. It was not a chokehold and the PBA has a duty to defend its member. It is not an outlandish petition. If I was still on the job would I want that cop hater DeBlasio coming to my funeral? NO! DeBlasio is anti cop!

Maybe they're just worried that DeBlasio would show up late.

Re: the NYC Mayor ...

Kind of a rookie in handling the 'hot' issue of the moment. Being in such a position he is undoubtedly an opinion maker amng the public. As I see it his job along those lines is to take a position which is sensitive to both sides of the issues. However the polls don't show it and there's certainly a racial divide. Just don't think he's skillful in his job. I guess he's a politician.
Hard to be a statesman on the big issues.

Whatever. If Mulgrew defended a pedophile teacher the way Lynch defends Panteleo, you and everyone else would be outraged. You can call Pat Lynch a good guy. He might be a good guy. I don't know nor do I care but he is an idiot, a shortsighted individual who is out of touch with what's going on. He attacks the mayor while fighting for a better contract deal with a pay raises. He goes on and on about respect but fails to understand that respect is a two way street. Police officers are suppose to extend that respect to the average citizen. It's called professionalism. He needs to wake up!

He could have joined the mayor and said "I would like to work with the city to improve relations between police officers and the citizens of New York City." That would be refreshing and it would boost the image of the PBA and the NYPD. Why can people like him show some humility? Why do some of these police officers have to behave in a disrespectful manner towards citizens? It's no coincedence that he attacks the mayor while ignoring the protests. He knows he is DONE for if he turns his sights against the protesters. This mentality has to end. This "us vs them" crap serves in no one's best interest and it's a shame how people don't see that.

Is this the same PBA that was against the formation of a NYPD inspector general?

Pantaleo did his job so he should be defended! You can say he is an idiot all you like. However I can assure you he isn't lol. Also if you know PBA politics is that Lynch gets blasted by the membership for not being aggressive enough! Talk about professionalism look at our dirtbag mayor how he slanders cops! Lynch is doing his job weather you like it or not!!

Didn't OWS mean "Overtime We Support"?
