PBA Statement on Retreat from Arrest in Midtown

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said

“The NYPD’s top brass better start talking: Who really issued the order to retreat?  Who put police officers in the dangerous position of backing down in the face of an angry mob? They have set an unbelievably damaging precedent. Police officers and all New Yorkers deserve to know who signed off on the NYPD’s literal surrender to criminals.”
