NY GOP Chair: De Blasio's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

By    |   Tuesday, 30 Dec 2014 02:52 PM

While New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has tried to offer an olive branch to the New York Police Department, New York State Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox says that "the rhetoric doesn't do it."

"It's the actions that they look for and his actions from the start of his campaign to be mayor have been anti-cop, and they get that," Cox told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Tuesday.

Following the grand jury decision not to indict New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner, de Blasio penned an open letter about the decision, in which he invoked concerns he has had for his own son, who is biracial, and he urged more training for police officers.

Patrick J. Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, the NYPD union, said that "police officers feel like they are being thrown under the bus."

"When he uses his son as an example and says, 'I taught my son to beware of cops' — basically that's what he said — they got the message," Cox explained.

"They understand that when [he overruled] Bratton and let those anti-cop mobs roam the streets of New York at will saying, kill cops, kind of slogan, they got the message," he said.

De Blasio is scheduled to meet with police union heads Tuesday, in an effort to open a dialogue between the mayor's office and the NYPD.

"It will seem constructive, they'll talk about [the current tensions], but the cops know — you don't play politics with the cops in New York," Cox explained.

"He played politics with them, he's got a lot of makeup work to do, and just one sit down will not do it," he said.

The New York Republican party head says that he agrees with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani that de Blasio does need to apologize to the NYPD.
