Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association to Mayor de Blasio, Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito: Stay home if we die on duty

 

The PBA posted a downloadable form for members to send in that cites, in part, that the mayor's and City Council speaker's ‘consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve.’ De Blasio and Mark-Viverito call form 'deeply disappointing.'

The NYPD’S biggest union offered city cops a chance to hold their grudges against Mayor de Blasio — all the way to the grave.

A form appeared Friday on the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association website for cops who want the mayor and Council Speaker barred from their potential line-of-duty funerals.

PBA offers forms for officers to request barring the mayor and city councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito from attending their funeral if they are killed in the line of duty.

“As a New York City police officer, (I) request that Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito refrain from attending my funeral services,” the form letter declares.

The letter cites the pair’s “consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve” — particularly in the wake of the Eric Garner grand jury decision.

The form letter, once signed, is returnable to the officer’s local PBA delegate.

Cops were infuriated when the mayor said publicly that he had warned his biracial 17-year-old son, Dante, to tread carefully when dealing with the NYPD.
