NYPD officer’s wake: New York Governor Hochul seen leaving after just 10 minutes, amid claps

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul appeared to leave the wake of slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller just minutes after arriving on Friday afternoon, video showed.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul appeared to leave the wake of slain New York City Police Officer Jonathan Diller just minutes after arriving at the funeral home on Friday afternoon, video showed. 

Video showed the governor speaking with a man outside the Massapequa Funeral Home on Long Island, then turning around and heading out. Clapping could be heard as she left. 

The incident came a day after the NYPD’s Sergeants Benevolent Association President Vincent Vallelong said in a letter to union members, “I’m sure that many elected officials will attend PO Diller’s funeral, shed a few crocodile tears, and prominently seat themselves for a good photo opportunity. The sad reality is we don’t want them there.”

“Their presence is more than a distraction,” Vallelong continued. “It is a stain on the legacy of a true hero who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the scores of dedicated and committed public servants who will carry on his mission despite their constant criticism, cynicism, negativity, and frivolous accusations.”
