NEW YORK CITY — Hundreds of NYPD police officers turned their backs on left-wing Mayor Bill de Blasio when the Democrat spoke at a police funeral Tuesday — not the first time de Blasio has had the NYPD turn their backs on him in protest of his anti-cop actions.
Thousands of mourners gathered in the Bronx to pay tribute to Officer Miosotis Familia, who was assassinated as she sat in her police vehicle last week. De Blasio infuriated officers and New Yorkers alike when he flew out to Germany the next day to attend the G20 protests in Hamburg.
That anger was on display at the mother of three’s funeral, which took place at the World Changers Church in the Bronx. The New York Post reported that officers outside the church turned their backs as de Blasio’s eulogy was broadcast on screens.
Other officers chatted with one another and played with their phones during his eulogy, the Post reported.
