‘It got ugly’: NYPD, union meeting gets physical over de Blasio apology

Even New York cops are getting tired of the fight with the mayor.

A union meeting of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association in Queens on Tuesday turned physical when some officers said they want to get back to fighting crime – and union issues – rather than trying to get an apology out of lefty mayor Bill de Blasio, the New York Daily News reported.

PBA President Patrick Lynch has been one of the most outspoken de Blasio critics since two officers were assassinated in response to weeks of anti-cop protests over the death of illegal cigarette vendor Eric Gardner.

That has made him a target of the city’s liberal press – which very much includes the Daily News.

“This is what my members want: they want more cars, better vests, more manpower,” one cop shouted, the Daily News reported.

“I don’t care about an apology,” another union member told Lynch, according to the Daily News. “I want to know what you’re going to do to protect us.”

Things went downhill from there, the Daily News reported.

“They were screaming,” one source said. “Lynch’s guys got up and there was shoving and pushing. It got ugly.”

Sounds like things are getting back to normal in New York.
