PBA president Patrick J. Lynch reacted to a videotape released by an attorney showing defendants claiming self defense in the beating of police officer Eric Hernandez saying:

“There is nothing that anyone can say or show me that could come close to justifying the beating of a human being the way these four animals beat police officer Eric Hernandez. The beating they gave him set in motion events that resulted in his death and they must be held fully accountable for it.”
