Now, the former TV cop is getting a stern talking to from the local police union (known as the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association). Patrick Lynch, the association's president, is likely alarmed at Ice-T's comments but copped a cool yet stern attitude when talking to the New York Post. "Ice-T may play a police officer on TV, but his disdain for law enforcement is well-documented," Lynch said. "Real police officers enforce real laws that exist to keep everyone safe, even a disrespectful, former rap performer-turned-actor, whether he likes it or not."
While we feel like Lynch sounds a little like a condescending father forcing his kid to go to summer camp, it's understandable that he had to respond after Ice-T's comments caused such embarrassment for the NYPD on a national level.
