The Commissioner says the Nation's Most-Sued Cops are Accusing the President & Eric Holder for People's lack of Confidence in Them.

This the first misstep of the Commissioner I've seen.  Who is he to speak for all cops in America?  Has he been on the hotline fielding calls from cop leadership all over the country? 

You expect for me to note the two guys at the top are both black, right?  Those NY cops have boners for black people and any white people who support black (and other minority) people.

You know?  Even the commissioner hasn't spent a whole lot of time going into great lengths praising the two fallen cops and teaching who they were as cops and people and now he's showing solidarity for his killer, corrupt cops by having the gall to blame the President and the Attorney General for the problems his boys created for themselves.  I'm surprised he didn't suggest the President and the Attorney General apologize to his whiny blue boys.  I'm going to have to take back some of the brownie points I've give him.  Five demerits, Top Cop. 

I don't consider FOX a reliable source of news and would like to see the video to make sure they are correctly reporting but I can't play the video at the site.

NYC police commissioner says cops 'feel under attack' from White House, Justice Department

Commissioner William Bratton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the president and the attorney general have to see why police have the anxieties and perceptions they have as law enforcement grapples with the fallout from the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases.

“They really do feel under attack, rank-and-file officers and much of American police leadership, that they feel they’re under attack from the federal government at the highest levels,” Bratton said. “So that’s something we need to understand also, this sense of perception that becomes a reality.”

 He added, “We have a lot of talking we’re going to have to do here to understand all sides of this issue. This is not a one-sided issue.”

On the program the commissioner also said the rift between New York City cops and Mayor Bill de Blasio is going to take a lot more time to heal.

“However we will be making an effort to sit down and talk with the (police) union leaders, in particular, to deal with their issues,” Bratton said.

On CBS’ “Face the Nation” Bratton criticized his officers for turning their backs on de Blasio Saturday as the mayor eulogized fallen police officer Rafael Ramos.  Hundreds of police officers standing outside the church where Ramos was being laid to rest turned away from TV screens showing de Blasio as he delivered his eulogy.

“I think it was very inappropriate at that event,” Bratton said. “That funeral was held to honor Officer Ramos, and to bring politics or to bring issues into that event, I think was very inappropriate and I do not support it.”

Ramos and his partner were killed Dec. 20 when a gunman ambushed them in their patrol car on a Brooklyn street.
