Yelling, Shoving, And Then Lynch Walks Out Of PBA Meeting
[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.
