NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — New York City’s police commissioner says it was “very inappropriate” for officers to turn their backs on the mayor in a sign of disrespect as he spoke at an officer’s funeral.
Commissioner William Bratton appeared Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” and defended Mayor Bill de Blasio. He says de Blasio is “totally supportive” of officers and that the department has received plenty of funding for new technology.
“This is a mayor that cares very deeply about New York City police officers, cares very deeply about the divide in this city at this time, and is working very hard to heal that divide,” Bratton said.
On Saturday, hundreds of police officers standing outside the church where Officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral was held turned their backs as de Blasio eulogized him.
