Anderson Cooper's full interview with NYPD Union President Pat Lynch

Pat Lynch is the President of New York City's Patrolmen's Benevolent Association. He spoke to Anderson at length about the Eric Garner case. He criticized comments from Mayor Bill de Blasio, denied that Officer Daniel Pantaleo's takedown maneuver was a chokehold and questioned the Medical Examiner's report on Mr. Garner's death. There was not enough time in tonight's show for the full conversation, but you can watch it here.

Part two of the interview includes Pay Lynch discussing Officer Pantaleo's feelings about the situation.

    Why is NYC mayor's son called bi-racial but president Obama is referred to as black? They are both bi-racial.

    Why you remove the video? Police pressure?

    PLEASE Google: program, Truly Reforming Law Enforcement as the only program that is the nations law to stop unjustified deadly physical force to save thousands of lives and taxpayers millions of dollars to pay for litigation instead of hiring good and excellent officers that will also help stop the need to peaceful protesting.

    When is the news going to play the video of Michael Brown and his friends attack an elderly black man? They beat on him and take his backpack then it shows Michael Brown taking money from his pocket. I think that there is a lot of information being shared about the good side of these men, but not the side that the cops dealt with day in and day out. They protect us and keep these thugs off the street. Let them do their jobs. Sometimes it is not polite and nice, these cops are dealing with criminals.
