PAT LYNCH CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION
FOLLOWING REPORTS THAT OFFICERS ON
STATEN ISLAND WERE ORDERED TO REPAIR
A HEADLIGHT ON ERIC GARNER'S MOTHER'S CAR
TO HELP HER AVOID A TICKET

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“If the bosses involved fixed the ticket then they must report themselves to Internal Affairs for disciplinary charges. If the NYPD is now in the car repair business then they need to let the general public know that if they get a ticket, don't pay it, just call an NYPD boss and they'll fix it. This is just absurd.”
