NYPD Chief: Don’t Turn Backs on Mayor

After hundreds of police officers turned their back on New York City mayor Bill de Blasio at slain officer Rafael Ramos’s funeral last week, New York Police Commissioner Willian Bratton has asked officers to maintain a level of respect at officer Wenjian Liu’s funeral on Sunday. “I remind you that when you don the uniform of this department, you are bound by the tradition, honor and decency that go with it,” Bratton wrote in a memo sent to officers on Friday. Thousands are expected to attend Liu’s funeral.
