NYPD officer suspended after announcing support for Trump on loudspeaker

A screenshot from a video of a New York Police Department officer allegedly campaigning for the re-election of US President Donald Trump in the 2020 US presidential elections in Brooklyn New York

A verbal altercation between a pedestrian and several cops sitting in a patrol auto that was blocking a crosswalk in Flatbush resulted in one of the officers allegedly flashing a white power hand symbol and yelling "Trump 2020" repeatedly through the vehicle's loudspeaker.

The officer was heard on two videos repeating "Trump 2020" over the loudspeaker of his patrol unit in Flatbush on Saturday night, New York Post reported.

In the second video, a camera-man tells the officer to "say it again", and the NYPD cop repeats over on over the phrase "Trump 2020". Put it on your YouTube. "Put it on Facebook", the officer says as the vehicle sits at an intersection with its emergency lights on. "Put it on YouTube".

Brandon Hines, 34, watched the concerning scene from his apartment and his roommate recorded it.

"Meanwhile, NYPD is using taxpayer dollars to blast "Trump 2020" from their loudspeakers," activist Matt Sutton added. It goes back a long long time. Trump 2020. Take a picture, take a picture, take a video.

"Let me be clear", de Blasio wrote. "We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated", he stated in a tweet on Sunday.

Pat Riley Ripped for Saying Lakers' 2020 Championship Deserves an Asterisk
Miami Heat president Pat Riley is trying to do some cleanup on comments he made about the NBA Finals deserving an asterisk. Critics immediately seized on Riley's comment, suggesting he was shading the Lakers or refusing to give them credit.

De Blasio spokesman Bill Neidhardt said an investigation launched Sunday will be completed by the end of the day.

On Sunday, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea condemned the endorsement and slammed the officer over his unprofessional behavior.

'Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs. "It is essential for New Yorkers to trust their Police", Commissioner Shea tweeted.

The Police Benevolent Association, the city's largest police union, threw its support behind Trump in August.

The NYPD patrol guide explicitly states that "while on duty or in uniform, endorsing political candidates or publicly expressing personal views and opinions concerning the merits of...any political party or candidate for public office" is prohibited conduct.
