NYPD police prepare to leave force, saying top brass abandoned them
From the Washington Examiner:
Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik claimed Sunday on Fox News that hundreds of NYPD officers are leaving the force out of frustration with the department’s treatment of the city’s law enforcement.
“The rumor is over 600 went to pension,” the NYPD sergeant said. “I have less uniformed cops by me.”
“The [Sergeants Benevolent Association] and the thousands I’ve sent them provide me with a lawyer and dental plan. Very important. No one else will back us at this point. Chiefs taking knees and humiliating themselves,” said the NYPD sergeant, referencing NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan taking a knee with protesters last week.
SBA President Ed Mullins says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, de Blasio, and NYPD upper management have treated the rank and file poorly.
