NYPD Union Boss Under Investigation After Calling Gay US House Nominee Ritchie Torres A

Gothamist reports:

The civilian agency that investigates NYPD misconduct has opened an investigation into the head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, Ed Mullins, after Mullins called Bronx Councilmember Ritchie Torres a “first-class whore” last week in a tweet.

Mullins, who has been the president of the SBA for 18 years, and has a history of making racist and offensive remarks, later deleted the tweet. The Civilian Complaint Review Board began their investigation after Torres made a complaint.

Mullins’s comments builds on a history of racist, sexist, and lewd remarks he’s made on the SBA’s official Twitter account. In summer of 2019, Mullins emailed a video to its 13,000-member organization that compared Black people to “monsters.” Mullins later apologized, calling it an “honest mistake.”

Mullins has appeared twice on Fox News in recent weeks with the QAnon mug seen above positioned for all to see.
