Today was the funeral service for the 2 slain Bedford-Stuyvesant officers who were gunned down earlier this week. When Mayor de Blasio spoke to give them a proper sendoff, the hundreds of police officers standing outside the church watching the service on monitors all turned their backs to the mayor for the second time this week.
The officers were protesting remarks the mayor made in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officers who killed an asthmatic man named Eric Garner. The officers in the Garner case strangled the man to death attempting to subdue him on charges of selling untaxed cigarettes.
