  1. Bratton Scolds Officers for Turning Backs

    More talk, less emotion: a recipe for defusing tension between cops and communities. That’s the view of NYC Police Commissioner William J. Bratton, who rebuked officers for turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio during a weekend funeral for a murdered policeman. Thousands turned out to pay tribute to Officer Rafael Ramos, but some let politics get in the way, which Bratton deemed “inappropriate.” He hopes a “lot less rhetoric and a lot more dialogue” will help the country move forward.
