DEFIANCE: Thousands of officers turn their backs as de Blasio speaks at funeral!

In an act of defiance many of the approximately 30,000 police officers in attendance at fallen Officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral turned their backs on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The anger started being shown as de Blasio entered the church and someone held up a sign that read “Dump De Balsio — God bless the NYPD.”

When the mayor began to speak a group of officers started to make a 180 degree turn. They were soon followed by more officers.

By the end of de Blasio’s speech thousands of the officers had their backs turned to the beleaguered mayor, according to WPIX.

Many took to Twitter to show their support for the officers gesture.
