Thousands of police officers, city officials, friends and family are in Bensonhurst today for the funeral of Detective Wenjian Liu, who was murdered alongside his partner in their squad car in Brooklyn a few weeks ago. And despite requests by Police Commissioner Bratton and others for decorum, hundreds of officers have reportedly turned their backs yet again to Mayor de Blasio as he delivered his eulogy.

You can see various photos of the protest below.

Officers turn their backs to Mayor de Blasio

The AP described it as thousands of police officers turning their back to de Blasio "repeating a stinging display of scorn for the mayor despite entreaties from the police commissioner not to do so."

During his remarks, de Blasio described Liu as someone who lifted "people up in every sense, wrapping them in kindness and teaching others by his example." The Times described a hoarse de Blasio as seeming "on the verge of breaking" at points during the eulogy. He ended his speech by asking New Yorkers to come together in the new year even though "harmony has been challenged in the city." He concluded, "Let us rededicate ourselves to those great New York traditions of mutual understanding and living in harmony. Let us move forward by strengthening the bonds that unite us, and let us work together to attain peace."

After thousands of officers turned their backs to de Blasio during the funeral for Police Officer Rafael Ramos last week, Bratton sent out a department-wide memo imploring officers not to do so again today: "A hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance."

Update: The Post has video of the incident:
