NY Police Union Chief: De Blasio 'Total Nincompoop' on Protests

By    |   Monday, 15 Dec 2014 05:30 PM

Police are angry at New York Mayor Bill de Blasio because they believe he is siding with protesters, even as some have begun chanting about dead officers.

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, called de Blasio a "total nincompoop" over his recent actions, the New York Post reports.

"What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!" some protesters chanted Saturday night. Police unions are angry that de Blasio has praised protesters for their "peaceful" behavior while not speaking out against the chants.

De Blasio called it "an incident ... in which a small group of protesters allegedly assaulted some members of the NYPD," the Post reported.

"When cops are the accused, the word 'alleged' never enters into the discussion," NYPD Detectives’ Endowment Association President Michael Palladino said.

"The mayor has been very divisive in the issue between community and police," Mullins said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

The mayor should be trying to build bridges, but instead has taken "an anti-police position," Mullins said.

The protests have been ongoing since two separate grand juries in St. Louis, Missouri and Staten Island, New York declined to indict white police officers in the deaths of unarmed black men.

Mullins told Cavuto that everyone recognizes racism is a problem in America, "but the people who are here today … didn't create that problem. In fact, most of the people that are living in this world today have tried to fix that problem."

New York has a 60 percent minority police force, and Mullins said black officers are as angry at de Blasio as anyone else.

"This country is the greatest country in the world, and when people can't walk freely, and when the police that provide that freedom are being called upon to be killed, and we have a mayor that sits by idle and doesn't really take action...." Mullins questioned, then what?
