Tasteless. That’s the first word that came to most New Yorkers mind when protesters flooded New York’s Times Square to rally against “police terror and murder.”
Just two days before, Randolph Holder, an NYPD cop and second-generation African-American was shot in the head and killed in East Harlem.
Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins told FoxNews.com:
“People have had enough of the anti-cop protest, and it’s time these people go get a job and find a different agenda. It’s just the arrogance of the whole thing. This is a naysayer group. If there’s a bit of intelligence put into any of this, they’d realize all their facts are incorrect.”
From Fox News:
Just two days after a career criminal allegedly gunned down NYPD officer Randolph Holder in East Harlem, and with his fellow cops still mourning, anti-police activists took to Times Square on Thursday to protest “police terror and murder.”
Holder’s murder on Tuesday night made him the fourth NYPD officer to die in the line of duty in the last year, which has also seen anti-police groups call for killing police. But the demonstrators who carried signs at 47th street and Broadway decrying “victims of police murder” seemed oblivious to the trauma felt throughout the city after Holder, an African-American and second-generation police officer, was killed trying to protect New Yorkers.
Should they have canceled the protest or at least postponed it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
