PATROLMEN'S BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION

PBA/SBA
News Conference

It was standing room only at a news conference where PBA president Patrick J. Lynch and SBA president Edward D. Mullins voiced their outrage over the vile and insulting pronouncements of some in connection with the tragic death in custody of Mr. Eric Gardner on Staten Island on July 17.  They contend that the damage to the reputation of police officers resulting from debate over a failed managerial policy regarding stop, question and frisk has sent the mistaken message to criminals that it is acceptable to resist arrest for minor infractions.
