PBA President: No slowdown

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Following the senseless assassination of two fine police officers, precautions had to be taken to protect police officers so that they could protect the City’s communities.  Statistics sometimes have to take a back seat to safety but as we saw last night in the 46 Precinct, New York City police officers, who could have closed their lockers and gone home after their shift ended, chose to respond to a robbery in progress and sadly, were shot in the process.  Our members are out there doing their jobs and putting themselves in danger to keep this city safe just as they always do. That’s a clear demonstration of police officers' dedication to duty and that there is no union initiated or supported slowdown.”
