FBI Pays a Visit to NYPD Union Office

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raided the offices and home of the outspoken President of the New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association Ed Mullins last week. While the motivation for the raid was not known immediately it has now been reported that the FBI raid is tied to a wide ranging investigation centering on Mullins financial dealings.

In the wake of the FBI raid the SBA Board of Directors asked for and received Mullins resignation. The SBA also announced that they will not be funding Mullins defense if and when the investigation leads to charges. Mullins remains a sergeant with the NYPD at this moment even though he is currently striped of his police powers and gun pending the outcome of an ongoing internal investigation that is not related to the recent FBI raids on his office and home.

If you look closely at Mullins’ history you will see the stark similarity between his outspoken history attacking people online every chance he gets and the history we documented of Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara. They both use social media to attack anyone that has the guts to disagree with their version of reality. They both have a very anti-science perspective and only have a extremely casual relationship with facts. They are both striped of their police powers and gun pending internal accountability processes that will most likely see they lost their jobs at the end.
