Don't Politicize Support for New York City Police

Two days after two NYPD cops were viciously murdered, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he had spoken to the Reverend Al Sharpton, as well as NYPD union leaders, asking them for “peace and unity.” Cuomo said, "I don’t think the back and forth has been productive, its overheated. And I think we need calm and peace and unity and then let’s have a productive conversation after the holidays." There are dead cops — and the governor appeals to Sharpton for “peace and quiet?” Perhaps he should ask Sharpton about paying his taxes during their conversations.

In a city where anti-police protestors meet the Mayor – and cops are shamed, naturally law and order is at a disadvantage.

Did Cuomo and de Blasio condemn the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) after Robert Murray, an SEIU organizing coordinator was arrested for assaulting an NYPD officer during a protest against the NYPD? Murray works for 32BJ, a 145,000-member New York affiliate of the SEIU. Tellingly, no one called for calm when the The United Federation of Teachers sponsored the anti-Police rally some months ago. The teachers union is silent today  — no marches or rallies for the police department. Its simply a sad state of affairs.

Coast to coast, police officers feel alone. Part of the answer can be found in the words of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who said that the lack of support for our boys in blue “comes more from this very left-wing ideology, which is an anti-police ideology.”

Police officers remain committed to making cities safe. Elected officials and all decent Americans must stand side by side with them. Supporting the police department should not be a political decision.
