  1. Officers Turn Backs on Mayor at Funeral

    They snubbed him again. Sunday’s funeral for Officer Wenjian Liu, the second policeman killed in last month’s attack, saw his colleagues publicly humiliate Mayor Bill de Blasio, though the police commissioner had urged them to show respect. Hundreds turned their backs as the mayor spoke — as they did at the funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos — protesting perceived lack of support for the NYPD. The reproach came despite the mayor’s talks with the police union, and sent a clear message that NYC’s finest are still fed up.
