PBA PRESIDENT SLAMS
LEGAL AID SOCIETY’S LIST OF “BAD COPS”

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Compiling a list of police officers who are alleged to be “bad” based upon newspapers stories, quick-buck lawsuits and baseless complaints — many of which are lodged in revenge by criminals seeking to punish an arresting officer — does nothing more than soil the reputation of the men and women who do the difficult and dangerous job of keeping this city and its citizens safe.  Where is the data base of the thousands of police interactions each day that save lives, take guns and drugs off the streets, prevent terrorist acts and demonstrate the concern and caring of our officers?  New York City police officers have always supported this City; when will this City support them?”
