NY Police Union Boss Wants De Blasio to Resign By ‘Sundown’
The head of New York City’s Sergeants Benevolent Association told Mayor Bill de Blasio that he has until “sundown” to exit the office and said he completely “ruined” the city.
De Blasio has been under fire in recent months over the surge in crime and what critics see as a lack of support for law enforcement. Reports indicate that residents are fleeing the city in droves and the city is preparing for a major shortfall in tax income as a result.

“We need to hear you RESIGNED as Mayor of NYC,” Ed Mullins, the union boss, wrote on Twitter. The New York Post reported that the comment was in response to a de Blasio tweet that was critical of President Trump and the Republican National Convention.
“We are WAITING. Only a few hours left until sundown,” Mullins posted. “Give 8 million people a gift & quit. You ruined NYC, Save the City and step down.”
The Post reported that a spokesman for the mayor took to Twitter to defend his boss, “Ed Mullins and RNC speaker Pat Lynch do not represent the views of most New Yorkers, let alone rank-and-file.”
Lynch, the head of the NYPD’s Police Benevolent Association union, spoke at the RNC earlier this week and said the city has been badly hurt under Democrat leadership.
“The Democrats have walked away from us. They have walked away from police officers and they’ve walked away from the innocent people we protect. Democratic politicians have surrendered our streets and our institutions,” he said.
The most recent attack out of New York involved an 86-year-old woman who had her $2,000 gold necklace ripped off her neck as she waited for an elevator on Wednesday, according to the New York Daily News.
The paper reported that the assailant fled and the “dazed victim” stood alone, according to the footage.
“Whether you go up Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue—go through SoHo, the Diamond Exchange—these were some of the most expensive streets in the United States of America and they are completely destroyed,” he said. “The businesses, the shops, the stores…bank windows… because the mayor wanted to address this with a ‘light touch’ instead of putting the resources necessary to do the job and secure the city.”
