PBA Shield

Lynch on 32 Precinct Heroes

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“In the coming days, New Yorkers will get to know these heroes. What they’ll find is they know them already. They are your sons. They are your husbands, fathers and brothers. They are your neighbors. They walked these city streets beside you. They shared the same dreams and the same worries that you have. That’s why they took an oath and pinned on a New York City police officer’s shield — not because they were different, but because they could see themselves in you. They knew that, unfortunately, there is still evil in our city, an evil that too many won’t even acknowledge. They wanted to protect you from that evil. Now one of them has died doing exactly that, and the other is fighting for his life. We respectfully ask you, once again: please join us to mourn Police Officer Jason Rivera as if he was your own flesh and blood. And please pray hard for our injured brother, because he is your brother, too.”
