Following Funeral Of NYPD Officer, A Call For More Dialogue

Following the funeral of one of two police officers gunned down in their patrol car, NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton called Sunday for a “lot less rhetoric and a lot more dialogue” to defuse the tension between police officers and the population they protect.

While defending Mayor Bill de Blasio, he also acknowledged that the morale of officers is low and said their actions “unfortunately” reflected the feelings of some toward the mayor. At the funeral, most turned their back to the mayor as he delivered a eulogy.
