Statement from Det. Michael J. Palladino

President, Detectives’ Endowment Association, Inc.

Regarding New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito celebrating the terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera


“When elected, the Speaker took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and Viverito violates that oath every time she celebrates this terrorist. On behalf of the cops he injured and civilians he killed, I condemn the Speaker for her words and actions. Any politician who embraces evil and terror has no business holding office in this country.”
