PBA PRESIDENT ON PO PETE LIANG
BEING FOUND GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER:
JURY GOT IT WRONG

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“We are very disappointed in the verdict and believe that the jury came to an absolutely wrong decision.  This was a terrible and tragic accident and not a crime.  This bad verdict will have a chilling effect on police officers across the city because it criminalizes a tragic accident.”
