New York mayor, top cop criticize funeral protest

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton (L) and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (C) after attending a wake for police officer Wenjian Liu at a funeral home in New York's borough of Brooklyn on January 3, 2015New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and police commissioner Bill Bratton on Monday criticized dozens of officers for turning their backs on the mayor at the funeral of a murdered policeman. De Blasio said the action by “some individual officers” disrespected the families of Detectives Wenjian Liu, 32, and Rafael Ramos, 40, who were shot dead on December 20. “I cannot understand why anyone would do such a thing in a context like that,” he told a news conference a day after Liu’s funeral. Tens of thousands of police officers attended funerals a week apart for Liu and Ramos, who were killed by a black gunman claiming to be avenging the deaths of African-Americans during recent confrontations with police.
