New York Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke once again at the funeral of a fallen police officer.
And once again the officer’s comrades turned their back on the mayor.
Officer Wenjian Liu was laid to rest. His family flew here from China to honor their loved one. His new bride now must carry on without her man.
Liu was shot to death the other day, along with Officer Rafael Ramos, by a gunman seeking revenge for a grand jury declining to indict another officer in the choking death of a black man in Staten Island.
De Blasio has said about all he can say to honor the two slain officers. He’s offered sympathy, support, words of encouragement and high praise. And yet again — as they did at Officer Ramos’s funeral — the officers turned their back on the mayor.
They have dishonored themselves and spit in the face of their comrade’s loved ones.
