STATEMENT FROM NYC PBA PRESIDENT
ON THE MURDER OF PO EDWARD BYRNE

24 YEARS AGO

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The cold-blooded murder of a young and idealistic police officer by these four drug lords 24 years ago shocked the city and the nation and became the turning point when our police officers began taking back the city’s crime-infested streets. That turnaround began at 107th Ave. and Inwood St. in Queens. Edward Byrne’s merciless assassins should leave prison only in coffins.”
