PBA PRESIDENT REACTS TO
MAYOR’S “EXCESSIVE FORCE” PRONOUNCEMENT

NYC PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:  “Mayor Bloomberg’s pronouncement that excessive force was used is premature and not based on a full and proper investigation of the facts.  Only the detectives and police officer who fired their weapons can explain the circumstances under which they took action and they have not yet been heard.  Premature statements made without the benefit of all of the facts only serve to inflame tensions and prejudice the rights of those who are presumptively innocent.”
