De Blasio's Ways Push NYPD's Chief Of Patrol To Resign
by Zach Heilman on October 14, 2020
After months of lack of support from Mayor De Blasio, NYPD's Chief of Patrol resigned effective immediately.
Chief Pichardo announced his resignation after Mayor De Blasio hounded him over the past week as the city was experiencing an increase in protest over new coronavirus restrictions
After working long hours last week to deal with protest over coronavirus lockdown measures, NYPD Chief of Patrol Fausto Pichardo was beyond frustrated when Mayor De Blasio called him into his office on Friday to berate him for oversight issues.
Then on Saturday night De Blasio hounded him about a house party in the Bronx that they felt needed to be handled by Chief Pichardo.
Pichardo has had little support from city officials as De Blasio has passed the budget to defund the police and abused his power with coronavirus restrictions all while allowing Black Lives Matter protesters to destroy the streets of the city.
Pichardo has been with the force for several decades and is described as a great cop who will be truly missed. Pichardo is just one of many high ranking officers across the country to resign over lack of support from political officials
