NYPD Union Leader: “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Protest Is “Stupid Sh*t” (Video)
New York Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch told union members the recent “hands up, don’t shoot” protest was “stupid sh*t.”
The propagandists on the left are outraged.
New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch—the leader of the city’s most prominent police union—was recorded referring to black Congressional staffers’ Capitol-steps “hands up, don’t shoot” walkout protest as as “stupid sh*t” at a union meeting in which he also condemned what he called “stupid rules” governing police-citizen interactions. From Capital New York:
“There’s a book they make for us where if you carried it with you, you won’t need to go to the gym,” Lynch said. “Every time there’s a problem, they tell us what we can’t do. They tell us what we shouldn’t do. They never tell us what we can do. We’re going to take that book, their rules and we’re going to protect ourselves because they won’t. We will do it the way they want us to do it. We will do it with their stupid rules, even the ones that don’t work.”
Lynch also complained about members of “the United States Congress on the steps of the Capitol raising their hand as if police officers aren’t protecting their rights to do stupid shit like that,” referring to a December 11 demonstration in Washington.
