While many still debate whether it was appropriate for cops to turn their backs to Mayor DeBlasio during the funerals of slain NYPD officers, there’s nothing inappropriate about a cop shot yesterday just not wanting a visit from the guy in the hospital.
From the New York Post:
One of the cops wounded in a wild Bronx shootout didn’t appreciate a hospital sympathy visit from Mayor Bill de Blasio, the wounded officer’s dad told The Post on Tuesday.
The mayor accompanied NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton to St. Barnabas Hospital overnight to see wounded plainclothes officers Andrew Dossi, 30, and Aliro Pellarano, 38.
“He wasn’t too happy about the mayor’s visit,” Dossi’s dad, Joe, told The Post at the family’s home in Rockland County.
“He (Dossi) deals with some crappy people every day and getting no support (from the mayor), come on. These are the guys in the trenches dealing with anything and everything.”
After last night’s shooting, the wounded Dossi was visited three separate times by Bratton, according to Joe Dossi, a 66-year-old retired special ed school bus driver.
During the second sympathy call, Bratton brought his boss, de Blasio, into the hospital room.
“The mayor came in last night. And I told him these guys are laying their lives on the line,” the elder Dossi said.
“Bratton seemed like a real legitimate guy. He came in three times and then the second time he brought the mayor in with him.”
The mayor apparently had little to say.
“The mayor seemed passive, like he was just listening to what Bratton was saying and what I was saying,” Dossi said.
Either Mayor McCommie has been cowed by all the NYPD protests, or he just doesn’t give a crap anymore.
