NYPD Union Calls for Removal of Mayor, Commissioner for Firing Daniel Pantaleo

Furious that an NYPD officer was fired for killing a man by using a forbidden chokehold, the department’s largest union is calling for the ouster of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the resignation of Police Commissioner James O’Neill.

Delegates for the 25,000-member Police Benevolent Association issued two votes of no confidence against the mayor and commissioner Wednesday, the same day the department acknowledge there has been a drop in arrests since New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo was fired earlier this month.

Judging by the high number of petty arrests conducted by the NYPD, the drop in arrests should not make the city any less safe. But it probably does affect the city revenue, much of it dependent on the poor people its arrests on petty charges like selling loose cigarettes.

The way the union sees it, any attempt at holding officers accountable reeks of “anti-police” bias and does nothing but demonize police officers.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

“For years, Mayor de Blasio has demonized police officers and undermined our efforts to protect our city,“ (NYPD union president Patrick Lynch) said. ”For years, Commissioner O’Neill has cravenly acquiesced to the Mayor and his anti-cop allies.”The last time the police union issued a resolution calling for an NYPD commissioner to step down was in 2004, when the union demanded the resignation of then-Commissioner Ray Kelly in protest of disciplinary action taken against an officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen in Brooklyn. Commissioner Kelly didn’t resign and served in the post until 2013.“For years, Mayor de Blasio has demonized police officers and undermined our efforts to protect our city,“ he said. ”For years, Commissioner O’Neill has cravenly acquiesced to the Mayor and his anti-cop allies.”

Although the union has not called for an official work slowdown, there was a 27 percent decline in arrests during the week following Pantaleo’s termination compared to the same period last year.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
