An Unusual Politician
Since police are charged with enforcing the laws passed by politicians, politicians in the past have usually courted law enforcement. Through the years politicians have often sought and won office by running on a "law and order" platform. Police and mayors are mostly seen side by side and acting in accord. In the case of Bill de Blasio, this mayor somehow thought it in his interest to speak against his own police department. De Blasio's comments have pitted citizens against cops and the cops against the Mayor. New York is suffering and de Blasio may have put paid to his future in politics.
