Hours after two NYPD officers were ambushed and shot dead in their squad car, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio condemned anti-police violence as reprehensible.
The mayor said, "When a police officer is murdered, it tears at the foundation of our society."
But on the way to the podium, de Blasio was met with a brief show of resistance from the officers he was about to support. Video from the New York Post shows NYPD cops turning their back on the mayor as he passed by them in the hallway.
