Security concerns ahead of funeral for slain NYPD Officer Wilbert Mora
NEW YORK (PIX11) – A video that surfaced on social media over the weekend appears to show a man making threats against NYPD funerals. The man allegedly has history of threatening violence against police, according to the detectives’ union president.
The post came after fallen NYPD Detective Jason Rivera’s funeral on Friday, where thousands of police officers packed Fifth Avenue to honor the fallen former officer. The video also came just before Tuesday’s wake for Rivera’s slain partner, Officer Wilbert Mora, followed by his funeral on Wednesday.
At least two police unions condemned the disturbing video Monday morning. The NYPD said it’s aware of the post but would not confirm if a criminal investigation had been launched.
