WATCH: New York Police Union Boss Gives Impassioned Speech: ‘Legislators Abandoned Us, The Press Is Vilifying Us’

The law enforcement officers at the NYPD are being unjustly vilified by the MSM, and they work for a corrupt and pro-criminal mayor. Yet they put their lives on the line every day to protect the people of New York City. In fact, there are not many people in America who have a more difficult and thankless job than the law enforcement officers at the NYPD. All good Americans should support them wholeheartedly.

In an impassioned speech on Tuesday, Mike O’Meara, president of the New York Police Benevolent Association, ripped politicians and the press who have vilified police officers as thugs and criminals over the past two weeks.

Holding up a police badge, O’Meara said that the actions of police in Minneapolis should not be a stain on the badges of other police officers.

“This isn’t stained by someone in Minneapolis. It still has a shine on it. And so do theirs. So do theirs,” O’Meara said as he gestured to the scores of police officers standing behind him.

O’Meara then pleaded with Americans to stop treating police officers “like animals and thugs,” demanding that cops be treated with some respect.

“Stop treating us like animals and thugs,” he said. “And start treating us with some respect. That’s what we’re here today to say. We’ve been left out of the conversation. We’ve been vilified. It’s disgusting.  It’s disgusting. Trying to make us embarrassed of our profession.”

O’Meara then stated that the vast majority of interactions with police are overwhelmingly positive and called to mind the police officers, many of whom were black men, that were killed in the riots.

“375 million interactions, overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly positive. Nobody talks about all the police officers that were killed in the last week in the United States of America, and there were a number of them,” said O’Meara.

O’Meara concluded by condemning the actions of Officer Derek Chauvin of Minneapolis and noted that he, O’Meara, is still proud to be a cop.

“We don’t condone Minneapolis. We reject what he did as disgusting,” concluded O’Meara. “It’s disgusting. It’s not what we do. It’s not what police officers do. Our legislators abandon us. The press is vilifying us. Well, you know what guys, I’m proud to be a cop and I’m going to continue to be proud to be a cop until the day I retire.”
