PAT LYNCH DEFENDS POLICE OFFICERS AGAINST THOSE WHO WOULD DENY THEM DUE PROCESS

Pat Lynch responded to a few press queries about a rally and press conference outside PBA headquarters at 11 a.m. today with this statement:

“We support the right of every individual to voice their opinion. We also support the concept of due process that some seek to deny police officers. We are not apologetic for the vehement defense of our members and our strong opposition to the rush to judgment in the tragic death of Mr. Garner.”
