NY police union tells Mayor Blasio he is BANNED from funerals of cops killed on duty

A New York police union has told Bill de Blasio to stay away from funerals of cops killed in the line of duty.

Last week, following days of protests in New York as a result of the grand jury decisions not to indict cops involved in the killing of Mike Brown or Eric Garner, the mayor caused anger among officers when he said his son, Dante, should be wary when dealing with the police.
