WATCH: Police Union President at RNC “Democratic politicians have surrendered our streets”

During his RNC Speech Thursday,  Pat Lynch, President of the NYPD’s Police Benevolent Association union blasted Democrats for their response to crime.

Lynch said during his fiery speech “We are staring down the barrel of a public safety disaster. More than 1,000 people have been shot in New York City so far this year, almost 300 have been killed. These are not just numbers, these are real people.”

He then blamed the Democratic party specifically.

“The Democrats have walked away from us.” he said. ”

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 added.
