Expect nothing less from a bunch of far-left cop-hating freaks.
A top de Blasio administration lawyer infuriated cops by tweeting about how the city failed NYPD “chokehold” victim Eric Garner — even as the investigation into his death remains open.
“RIP Eric Garner,” wrote Ian Bassin, a deputy counsel who earns $140,000 a year. “You deserved so much more from our City. We will and we must do better.”
The premature July 19 posting on Bassin’s personal Twitter page enraged cops, who are under fire over the death even before an official autopsy report.
“That is crazy. This administration is filled with a bunch of liberal loonies,” said a police source. “I don’t understand how someone who represents the mayor could go public with a statement like that without the autopsy report.”
The tweet came just two days before Mayor de Blasio stressed the need to let the investigation take its course before rushing to judgment. “All sides need to be heard and all evidence looked at,” he said Monday in Italy.
Thanks to this tool the city can expect to be pay out millions to this guy’s family.
