Wikipedia : ...”On July 1, 2002, Ed Mullins was elected President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association; since then he has been reelected for four-year terms.[7][8] He is also Chairman and Trustee to the union’s Health Benefits Fund and Annuity Fund, and a Trustee for the New York City Police Pension Fund.[8]

In 2003 Mullins argued that police officers should be able to sue the estates of people they kill in shootings for emotional damages.[9]

Under Mullins the SBA has fought fiercely against police reform and has taken a much more hard-line conservative position. The SBA has made up for their small size with aggressive messaging and extreme rhetoric. They have made extensive use of both social media and traditional media, President Mullins is a regular on the conservative talk show circuit.[9] The SBA has fought against mandatory breathalyzer tests for officers who fire their weapons on the job.[9]

In 2006 Mullins and the SBA demanded an apology from Mayor Bloomberg for saying that he was “deeply disturbed” by the officer involved shooting death of Sean Bell.[9]

In 2015 Mullins wrote a letter of protest to Google, complaining about a feature in the Waze traffic app that allows users to pinpoint the locations of police officers.[10] He said that allowing users to “get alerts before they approach police” could put police officers at risk from criminals who will abuse the real-time data provided by Waze.[10]

In May 2016 Mullins called for Police Commissioner Bill Bratton to step down amid a police corruption investigation.[11]

In August 2018 the Sergeants Benevolent Association began offering civilians $500 cash rewards for coming to the aid of an officer in trouble and helping police officers restrain those who are resisting arrest.[12]

In 2019 Sergeants Benevolent Association president Mullins emailed an explicitly racist video to the Association's membership along with the message "Pay close attention to every word. You will hear what goes through the mind of real policemen every single day on the job. This is the best video I've ever seen telling the public the absolute truth.” After the email was publicized he said that sharing the video, which referred to black people as monsters, was an honest mistake, apologized to union members, and told the New York Post that “there is no one to blame but me for the video that was distributed.”[1] The SBA declined to discipline or criticize Mullins.[13]

In February 2020 the SBA tweeted "Mayor De Blasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you! We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you. NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you. This isn’t over, Game on!”[14] after a targeted attack on a police office which the Mayor had referred to as an assassination attempt on the officers.[15]

In May 2020, during the George Floyd protests in New York City, the SBA doxxed NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter by tweeting a photo of her arrest record shortly after she was arrested for blocking traffic and refusing to move after officials deemed it an "unlawful assembly" during a protest, as reported by The New York Post and Fox News.[16][17] The arrest record contained her home address, date of birth and state ID number, among other information, and was later taken down.[18]

In July 2020, during an interview with Fox News, Ed Mullins appeared with a QAnon mug in the background. In a phone call with Business Insider, he refused to clarify whether it was his and or whether he endorses the QAnon conspiracy theories.[19] This was not the first time the mug, which featured the word QANON the hashtag WWG1WGA, had appeared at Mullin’s side in an interview.[20]

In September 2020, SBA president Ed Mullins supported Attorney General William Barr's description of New York as an "anarchist city." Mullins said, "Barr is correct we are living in criminal anarchy."[21]

Mullins was charged with misconduct by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, in February 2021. The board substantiated three charges against him, two of offensive language and one of abuse of authority.[22]

In February 2021 the SBA twitter account repeated the claim that the Sergeants Benevolent Association was “at war” with the government of New York City.”....

Sadly, it's still a cop. It should be fired without pension ... NYC is overpoliced, and can do without one more PoS enforcing laws against victimless crimes.
