Those Who Protect Bad Cops; Have Blood On Their Hands, Perpetuate Criminal Cop Culture

Pat Lynch

Pat Lynch, the head of the largest NY Police union-- PBA-- has blamed Mayor Bill de Blasio and US Attorney General Eric Holder for the killings of two police officers, saying their blood is on de Blasio's hands. It ends up that Lynch has attacked every one of the past six mayors of NYC.

Lynch is an attack dog. Lynch is the one who has the blood of two police officers on his hands. Lynch has the blood of Eric Garner on his hands.

Lynch is a huge part of the problem with police who kill. As leader of a large union, that makes the union a major part of the problem.

The union is unquestioning in its support of bad cops. it protects and fights for bad cops-- criminal, murdering cops.

For the culture that supports and defends criminality among police to change, the elements that maintain the culture must change. That means that the head of the "snake"-- Pat Lynch has to go. Unions with mentalities that back up criminal police officers have to go.

The right wingers who run cover for bad cops need to be called out again and again. That should be the job of the mainstream media. They could at least offer an equal voice to people protesting against police killings.

Until the police and their unions and supporters make it clear that they acknowledge that there ARE bad cops and they have to be held accountable, ALL police are going to get a bad rap that they don't deserve.

As Rabbi Michael Lerner has said, until grand jury prosecutors start doing their jobs, THEY are putting good cops at risk. THEY are giving all cops a bad reputation. This should be an idea that gets more attention.

I hope there are some police officers who get it that Police union head Pat Lynch really does have blood on his hands, that every police union leader, ever prosecutor, every mayor, every pundit and politician who makes excuses for bad cops who kill is contributing to the murders of cops.

So speak out. Tell the police you see on the street that if they are honest that they have to police their own, that the old ways are bad for police, bad for America. And since the USA sets a very bad example that will be cited by police all over the world. A bad cop in NYC or Ferguson can lead to victims in every continent on the planet.

But if you do speak to police, do it nicely, from your heart, not from anger. This is a very touchy issue that has police feeling very defensive. So, don't do it if you're stopped by a cop. Do it when you see a cop in a place where you are not at risk of being mistreated or abused.
