[su_right_ad]New York’s head of the Police Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, was shouted down by cops when he asked for an apology from Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Tempers flared toward the end of the nearly two-hour session at Antun’s in Queens Village when some members began yelling at PBA President Patrick Lynch over his declaration that Mayor de Blasio owes cops an apology.

“This is what my members want: they want more cars, better vests, more manpower,” one cop shouted, according to the sources. “They don’t want an apology.”

Another union member told Lynch: “I don’t care about an apology. I want to know what you’re going to do to protect us.”

Lynch said he disagreed about the importance of an apology, according to the sources.

The meeting then disintegrated into a physical conflict between cops who support Lynch and those who don’t, the sources said.

“They were screaming,” one source said. “Lynch’s guys got up and there was shoving and pushing. It got ugly.”…

The yelling and screaming lasted about 10 minutes before Lynch adjourned the meeting and left.

    Lynch is the type of union boss that gives all union bosses a bad name…

    Sounds like someone should be arrested for disorderly conduct.

    These knownothing whigs were ginned up by GOP losers voted against by (D) 3: 1 (R) “Led by Joseph Concannon, a retired NYPD detective and former City Council candidate, the rally was billed as a nonpartisan affair but attracted a variety of Republican organizations and officials to decry Mr. de Blasio, a progressive Democrat.”

      I’m betting no guns were allowed at this get together.

      • greenfloyd January 14th, 2015 at 1:20 am

        I hope you did not loose too much…:) Those guys do not go anywhere without their gun. After all their surrounded by citizens. This is a volatile group, prone to violence, and if it keeps going the way of a Palin-family party, it’s only a matter of time.

    am i missing something? protect “them” from what? from whom? its the other way around i think. who’s going to protect the citizens from them?!

    • Foundryman January 13th, 2015 at 11:57 pm

      If they weren’t so gung ho to hurt people they wouldn’t need protection.

    • Spirit of America January 14th, 2015 at 12:48 am

      Well, the 2 cops who were just assassinated in their car and the cop that got a hatchet to his head just for being cops might see it both ways…

        by mentally ill individuals – give me a break.

  7. R J January 14th, 2015 at 12:36 am

    I’m sure faux news and the rest of the right wing media (mainstream media) will be sure to label them as being nothing more than union thugs

    • Spirit of America January 14th, 2015 at 12:46 am

      Which side, lynch’s or the other side?

      • mea_mark January 14th, 2015 at 2:55 pm

        Both sides?

    What goes around, comes around, Mr. Lynch. You incited some police officers to use the deaths of two of their fellow officers as a protest tool instead of an occasion to honor them and their service, thereby , showing disrespect for them, their families, yourselves, and the citizens on NYC. Imo, it’s you and those who disrespected the aforementioned groups who who apologize to them.

    • rg9rts January 14th, 2015 at 1:27 am

      Class act , that NYPD

    And yet another disturbing episode of NYPD Implosion.

    Interestingly, the Sergeants Benevolent Association seems to get it:

    I’m not going to beat the Garner case to death,” Mullins said.
    “Unfortunately, it happened. If it didn’t, none of us would be talking
    about this. But as a result of what transpired, we now have hesitancy in
    the rank and file.”

    Aside from the incredibly insensitive wording about Mr. Garner (RIP), they are at least in the ballpark.

    • whatthe46 January 14th, 2015 at 1:13 am

      if they’d stop murdering unarmed citizens and actually charge the cops with murder when it does, they wouldn’t be talking about this.

      • greenfloyd January 14th, 2015 at 1:37 am

        Exactly! Although as you can see we are a long way from that. I suspect the sergeants are much closer to the rank-and-file and that “hesitancy” is actually a tacit recognition of over-policing. I hope de Blasio can use that as leverage in negotiating with Lynch and company.

    HAAAAH HOOOO at last the real cops call the show boater on his political scamming

    • whatthe46 January 14th, 2015 at 1:44 am

      yeah, but i can care less about their wanting more “protection.” i’d say they are damned well protected than anyone.

    Uh oh, unrest and dissension in the ranks.

  12. dave-dr-gonzo January 14th, 2015 at 8:28 am

    Cops who use banned chokeholds should be fired and charged with assault at the very least. Lynch opposes justice.

    • Carla Akins January 14th, 2015 at 8:40 am

      At the very least it appears his views are not in line with the majority of those he was elected to represent.

  13. Carla Akins January 14th, 2015 at 8:41 am

    I am very pro union, but this guy is dangerous.

  14. uzza January 14th, 2015 at 9:20 am

    They lose control of their tempers and become violent, when they feel they aren’t getting the respect due mature adult professionals? Hmm.

  15. Pilotshark January 14th, 2015 at 9:32 am

    Whats that

    Squad 54 where are you?

  16. fahvel January 14th, 2015 at 12:42 pm

    wow – 2 cops dead (sad) but what does the mayor have to do with it?

  17. Bunya January 14th, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    An apology from the mayor isn’t needed. Protection from the NYPD, is.
