DeBlasio a no show for murdered cop's street renaming
From PIX 11:
44-year-old Todd Cardillo flew up from Florida for a second, NYPD ceremony honoring his slain father this year — and, for a second time, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio did not attend an event designed to “right a wrong” from more than 43 years ago when former Mayor John Lindsey failed to attend the 1972 funeral for Patrolman Phillip Cardillo, who was fatally shot in a racially-charged incident at a Harlem mosque.
Mayor de Blasio was traveling in Israel this past weekend, and when PIX11 asked Commissioner Bratton about the current mayor’s absence, Bratton responded, “You’ll have to ask the mayor that, he received an invitation.”
The mayor's office issued the following statement on his absence at the renaming:
“The Mayor is grateful to Patrolman Phillip Cardillo and his family for giving the ultimate sacrifice to New York City in his efforts to protect our city’s residents. The Mayor has also been honored to attend street renamings for officers who have died in the line of duty during his administration."
Commissioner Bratton took pains to apologize for a climate, on April 14, 1972, that led police officials to let 16 suspects leave the mosque, as the crime scene where Cardillo’s blood was spilled was cleaned up by Nation of Islam mosque members.
“It was a shame then, and it’s a shame now,” Bratton said, standing at a podium outside the NYPD’s new Police Academy in College Point, Queens, where a portion of 28th Avenue was about to be renamed Patrolman Phillip Cardillo Way. “It was wrong to give politics jurisdiction over an active crime scene. It was wrong that neither the then-mayor nor police commissioner attended Phil’s funeral. It was wrong to let political pressure interfere with a murder investigation.”

Charlie Fucking Rangel.
It is a religion of peace. Or so we are told.
And we all have scheduling issues...
DeBlas has 2 role models, Lindsey and Dinkins.
Blue flu until late this POS leaves office.
De Blah-Blah takes ordered from his wife.
Yawn...I forgot to set Bill's alarm clock.
Our mayor has mental issues and is medicated.
Hmmmm....we have a lying no show councilman....Paul Vallone.
Both Wilhelm and Paulo are afraid of their public
You see Dante what I mean,every dead cops is just a cop who died trying to kill an African-American That's why I don't attend these ceremonies
Besides they do them to early in the morning before my medication kicks in son
Of course he did not show up. It is not a ceremony for a new hotel/shelter.
There is a rumor that he is on anti depressants. His father committed suicide.
He has no soul......
Bratton is pretty nonchalant with his response, and I wonder why. You think it's because he doesn't want to set off alarms in the department or offend his boss. But I think when Mayor Big Slow proposed using the failure that is "broken windows" on fighting palestinian insurgents or bigoted random attacks in Isreal might have eased the commissioner's mind somehow.
I love Marcia Kramer. Have you seen her question Cuomo? every time he responds to her he looks like he was castrated. I am surprised a real reporter exists in a mainstream news program these days, she must have dirt on some folks at cbs
