Gov. Kathy Hochul asked to leave funeral for slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller after 10 minutes

The New York governor was only at the venue for about 10 minutes before she was asked to leave. Several cops clapped as she walked away.


New York Governor Kathy Hochul was asked to leave the wake of slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller on Friday after she was there for 10 minutes.  

The governor attempted to come into the venue for the scheduled second day of viewings and was present for about 10 minutes before a man in a black suit came up and spoke to her. Police sources told the New York Post that the governor had been asked to leave the venue.  

Prior to the event, an NYPD union had told other New York City politicians to not plan on attending. Former President Donald Trump was invited to attend and paid respects to the fallen officer. Diller was killed during a routine traffic stop on Monday when he was shot by a suspect with 21 prior arrests.  

The governor had been attempting to attend the second day of viewings for the wake on Friday and several officers at the venue clapped in response to Hochul’s being asked to go.

Hochul and other New York politicians have come under fire recently because of the death of the officer and lax bail reform policies in the city.  

“Adrienne Adams, Jumaane Williams and their cohorts should stay home. They detest cops and have no appreciation for what they do. They should stay home and not pretend they are grieving. They have caused enough heartbreak and destruction,” NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association President Vincent Vallelong said of the other NYC officials.  

Officer Diller was shot and killed in Queens at a routine traffic stop on Monday. He leaves behind his wife and 1-year-old son.
