NYPD Unveils Rainbow-Themed Vehicle Before City’s Gay Pride March

ABC News

A New York Police Department vehicle has gotten a rainbow-themed makeover before the city’s 2016 LGBT Pride March this Sunday.

The NYPD badge on the SUV’s hood is in rainbow colors, as are the words “pride,” “equality” and “peace” on the vehicle’s side. The car also reads “NYC pride 2016” on a heart-shaped rainbow and “Our [heart] goes out to Orlando.”  

Some have praised the NYPD vehicle as a sign of the department’s solidarity with the LGBT community and Orlando.

But others have criticized it, given the police’s troubled history with LGBT New Yorkers.

When asked at a news conference today if the NYPD owes the LGBT community an apology for the 1969 Stonewall raids, NYPD Commissioner William Bratton said, “I don’t think so.”

He said that he thought a lot of “good” came out of the “terrible experience” and that the changes in the department since then, in effect, constituted an apology.

  1. This makes perfect sense, since the NYPD are all faggots. They really ought to paint all their vehicles in rainbow colors, not just that one.

  2. I have no words right now. Then again I just woke a half hour ago and the coffee hasn’t kicked in. I will say this in a Chris Farley voice from tommy boy…. Oh My Gawd!
