The NYPD Officer was just suspended. Bill deBlasio said no officer should support a political message while on duty.
A New York City police officer is suspended without pay after videos shared over social media Saturday night appeared to show him using his patrol vehicle's speaker to say “Trump 2020.”
The department’s official NYPD News Twitter account shared one video posted of the incident and said that the Brooklyn South Investigation Unit was investigating the matter. NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea also commented on the matter, calling the incident “one hundred percent unacceptable.”
“Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs,” Shea tweeted.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also commented on the incident through his Twitter account on Sunday.
"Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences," the mayor said. "We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated."
