PBA statement on Appellate Court reinstatement of "Diaphragm Law"

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch:

“We are reviewing our legal options. However, our city leaders need to realize that this ruling deals a direct blow to our fight against the violence that is tearing our city apart. This ill-conceived law makes it virtually impossible for police officers to safely and legally take violent criminals into custody — the very job that New Yorkers are urgently asking us to do.”
