PBA PRESIDENT ON THE GOVERNOR’S CALL
FOR EMERY TO APOLOGIZE OR RESIGN
AND EMERY’S EMPTY APOLOGY FOR CALLING COPS “PIGS”

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Emery cannot take back his words and his apology is disingenuous at best. The CCRB is too important an office to have an anti-police political appointee who makes money on the backs of our cops. We thank Governor Cuomo for his continued support of our police officers but we believe that Richard Emery should be dismissed or resign now.”
