In the Chief, PBA president Pat Lynch calls the second department’s overturning of an assault on a police officer conviction “insane.” In another story, Lynch comments on a judgment against three police officers in a civil suit alleging use of excessive force that was thrown out when it became known that the plaintiff in the action had arranged to pay for the testimony of his ex-girlfriend who initiated the police action during a domestic dispute. Lynch said: “…fighting to protect the reputations of New York City police officers who are falsely accused will deter the fraudsters and opportunists and save millions in taxpayers’ money.”
