PBA President calls modified assignment of PO Daniel Pantaleo in Staten Island death in custody case “political” and “wrong.”

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“The department’s modification of this police officer under these circumstances is a completely unwarranted, kneejerk reaction for political reasons and nothing more.   It is a decision by the department that effectively pre-judges this case and denies the officer the very benefit of a doubt that has long been part of the social contract that allows police officers to face the risks of this difficult and complex job.  It is a bad decision by the department that is absolutely wrong.”
