I almost forgot. When I wrote this, I left out the worst part: the police picketing is putting public safety at risk.
In addition to embarrassing the city, the BPPA is endangering the city.
This is from the Boston Herald:
Dozens of Boston's specialty drug and gang unit cops have been pulled from their beats to keep guard over Menino's events being picketed by their fellow officers.
The specialty units are now policing picketing cops instead of chasing drug dealers, gang bangers and the other thugs who would make life miserable for all of us.
Does the BPPA care? No. They only care about their own wallets. They've proved they don't care about Boston's reputation, Boston's taxpayers, or Boston's citizens.
