Mayor Bill de Blasio has created an environment that is combative to the police while allowing criminals to feel emboldened.
That is the overwhelming opinion of Mayor de Blasio by the bulk of NYC’s finest!
A recent survey conducted by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association shows that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s approval rating among NYC’s city’s police force has bottomed out.
88% held “very unfavorable” opinions of de Blasio.
97% said de Blasio has “created an environment where criminals feel emboldened” and that they feel less safe on duty.
96% said relations between cops and the community has declined under de Blasio.
95% said de Blasio has “established an environment that is combative to police“.
66% said they could fine “nothing” nice to say about de Blasio.
“NOTHING” nice to say about de Blasio!
The survey, conducted by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, found that rank-and-file cops on average rated morale at just 2.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.
“The brave men and women who risk their lives to protect New Yorkers should feel confident that their hard work is having a positive impact,” said Patrick Lynch, PBA president.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said on Monday that he is “not surprised” by the survey that showed most cops are unhappy with their jobs. He said the city has become more dangerous since Mayor Bill de Blasio took office.
Bratton went on to say, “Nothing in that survey shows anything different from the one we ourselves conducted two years ago — it shows nothing we are not working to address.”
You will remember that on a number of occasions in 2014 and 2015, most NYC LEO’s turned their backs as de Blasio spoke. Here! Here!
At the time, thousands of NYPD cops were still furious over de Blasio’s characterizing them as the bad guys.
NYC understands the words, “You’re Fired de Blasio!” It is high time I believe fro that to happen!
New York officers turn their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio!
