NYPD top cop Shea calls health chief's comments 'very disturbing'

NYPD top cop Shea calls health chief's comments 'very disturbing'”

Sources familiar with the matter said on Thursday that the NYPD contacted City Hall immediately after a March 18 phone call during which Dr. Barbot told NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, "I don't give two rats' asses about your cops", in response to his request for 500,000 surgical masks.

The conversation, first reported by the New York Post, was confirmed to the media by the NYC Health Department.

De Blasio called the comment "misogynist" and "absolutely unacceptable", and Shea said, "I denounce that", while arguing that calls for Barbot's head were "a little preliminary".

"I am not surprised by such vile words coming from an appointee of Mayor de Blasio, whose disdain for law enforcement is legendary", Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins said in a statement.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday said the city's Department of Health commissioner should "apologize" to New York Police Department officers amid reports that she made derogatory comments while receiving requests for masks to protect the police force from COVID-19.

It was also reported by the New York Post that a source who was present at the city Office of Emergency Management headquarters in Brooklyn in March, recalled that he noticed a very tensed moment when Monahan complained to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in front of Barbot about the unavailability of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the NYPD officers. Police officials succeeded in obtaining about 250,000 masks for officers and employees.

"Dr. Barbot shouldn't resign, she should be fired".

"During the height of COVID, while our hospitals were battling to keep patients alive, there was a heated exchange between the two where things were said out of frustration but no harm was wished on anyone", he said.

"The Commissioner apologized for her contribution to the exchange, the apology was accepted and agreement was arrived between the two to ensure that respirators were delivered to members of the force", the statement continued. In the depths of a shortage of citywide personal protective equipment like face masks, the police had shown up unannounced demanding DOH hand over supplies intended for other essential frontline workers such as doctors and nurses. The CDC is now advising that all Americans wear face masks when out in public. Globalist are going to get you before they get the American people. He also asks for New Yorkers to comply to the NYPD when confronted about social distancing guidelines. "It is critical", Adams said. This announcement came despite the Department of Health, headed up by Barbot, already having run similar programs.
