NYPD sergeants' union head calls for Bratton to step down

It’s time for Police Commissioner Bill Bratton to go, the head of the NYPD sergeants’ union said Sunday.

“It’s time that we start to set the department straight, and if we need to make changes at the top — I personally think Bratton has stayed too long, and it’s time to go,” Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins said on the John Catsimatidis AM 970 radio show.

“We need to set a standard, and we need to raise the bar, and we need to build the relationship with the community, and we need to set an example of leadership going forward. And I just don’t see it happening.”

Mullins charged there is a double standard within the NYPD, where high ranking brass are punished less severely than lower level cops and sergeants for the same behavior.
