A top Democrat showed up to a slain cop’s wake and you won’t believe what happened next

Democrats want Americans to think they are tough on crime.

That task just became infinitely more difficult.

A top Democrat showed up to a slain cop’s wake and you won’t believe what happened next.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul shows up to Officer Jonathan Diller’s wake and gets an earful

Americans were outraged over the killing of New York City Police Officer Jonathan Diller.

A career killer with 21 arrests on his record allegedly murdered Officer Diller as he investigated an illegally parked car.

The family of Officer Diller invited Donald Trump to attend the wake, where Trump prayed with his widow and son, offered words of support for law enforcement, and declared that the days of criminals wantonly gunning down police officers in the street must end.

New York Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul attempted to show her face at Officer Diller’s wake.

But Hochul wasn’t welcome in the least.

Family members reportedly chased her out of the wake, with at least one placing the blame for Officer Diller’s murder on Hochul.

“We don’t want you here. You’re not wanted here. You have blood on your hands. If you want to do something, change the bail laws,” a Diller family member reportedly said to Hochul.

Hochul tries to deflect blame

Many New Yorkers blame Hochul for the killing of Officer Diller, as Hochul is the face of New York’s bail reform law, that allows judges to release criminals onto the street with no bail following their arrest.

Hochul later defended her trying to attend Officer Diller’s wake as well the bail reform law.

“I would do it again, and that’s my job,” Hochul stated.

Hochul tried to claim she wasn’t run out of the wake.

“We were told the family is welcoming. We always check, and they said to come, and I went. And no one told me to leave,” Hochul added.

Hochul also claimed that as Governor she didn’t have the power to work with the legislature to change the bail reform law to keep criminals locked away in prison where they belong.

“Understandably there’s anger about how these individuals could commit crimes over and over and are back out on the street again,” Hochul continued.

“We worked hard with the [state] Legislature last year to change the bail laws, so the judges have more discretion, and there’s a lot of complicated factors here,” Hochul stated.

Hochul is the Governor of New York.

If she really wanted to flex her muscles and expend the political capital to end no cash bail, Hochul could have.

The fact that Hochul didn’t press all that hard to reform the bail law speaks to the death grip the pro-defund the police base exerts over the Democrat Party.
