The president of the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association was critical of Governor Andrew Cuomos handling of violence throughout the state after some peaceful protests.
President Thomas Mungeer wrote that he finds it appalling that the governor hasnt condemned violence directed at State Police during the riots across the state.
The letter continues, noting that members of the state legislature and governors administration have offered little support during the riots across the state.
I find it appalling that you have not condemned the violence directed at your New York State Troopers during the riots across the state, he said. In fact, during your daily briefing today you repeatedly used the word ugly to describe recent events but did not acknowledge that the Troopers under your command have been responding to riots with unwavering loyalty to public safety.
The right to a peaceful protest is etched in the U.S. Constitution and as law enforcement officers we are sworn to uphold that concept. We are all outraged by the events that became a catalyst for where we are today, and the fact that members of the public want to peacefully protest for change is their American right, the letter continues.
However, what Troopers are being called upon to respond to across the state are not peaceful protests or voices of reason urging societal changes, these are violent riots taking place around the state including New York City, Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester and Albany, just blocks from the Executive Mansion. Peaceful protestors do not arrive with hammers and Molotov cocktails, burn police cars, smash the windows of businesses or spray graffiti on St. Patricks Cathedral criminal opportunists and vandals do. Peaceful protestors do not start fires in the streets or to businesses arsonists do. Peaceful protestors do not gather en masse to openly disregard laws, create havoc and impede on the rights of the general public rioters do.
The Union supports the Party that doesn’t support law and order.
well, he did blame Trump.
I watched a NYC police leader on CBS This morning when the metrosexual Tony Dipoophead (married to katie turd) said the cops were wrong to move their cars to get to a scene to help cops calling for assistance. The police guy calmly laid out the facts and asked Tony what he would do, Tony would have pooped his pants and was left looking foolish, as usual.
yet they still vote for him so as instructed to do so by their union
Who left the prisoners out of jail? Who cares about the illegals over the American people? Rest my case!
Volumes could not say more.
Hey, the Democrats don’t want to get in Dutch with their base.
“...Who let the prisoners out of jail? Who cares about the illegals over the American people? Rest my case!...”
Exactly. And to add to that, he deliberately mass-murdered the elderly in the nursing homes by sending virus patients and body bags to the homes knowing full well the end result.
Perhaps the NY state police should arrest the communist SOB for mass murder and crimes against humanity.
nypd dealing with Social Justice Shoe Stealers
Yes, unions usually mindlessly back Democrat candidates. And in that respect they are part of the problem. But a union often is the only insider group willing to tell you the truth. So in that respect they are valuable.
This article is evidence of that.
Liberal cities remain shut down and now are being burned down...what a coincidence
Ef the union.
And forget any help from the dumb a** mayor.
Blue state governors like Cuomo and mayors hate America and their voters.
They are allowing out of town thugs to join with their home grown thugs to destroy their cities, homes, shopping areas and places that create jobs.
Enough is enough.....period!!!! Democrats Cuomo & De Blasio,have destroyed New York State & New York City. Obama & Soros are working on destroying theses United States Of America and all of our freedoms and liberty, etc.!!!
Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020 will host a number of Democrat & GOP POTUS Primary Elections. I would only suggest that Democrats voters reject their party and do not vote at all for Democrat Joe Biden...period. If they do, and it is their choice...they are all Traitors & Turncoats against the our USA Nation Republic.....and they can kiss their freedom an d liberty goodbye forever....Case closed!!!
Who does the union support in elections...republicans or democrats?
Democrat party member Andrew Cuomo released 64 murderers and 1,100 other criminals so far this year upon the people.
