So...an NYPD police officer was seen openly wearing Trump patches on her uniform last night at a protest in New York City, despite strict prohibitions against wearing any sort of political statements while on duty. It would seem that Sgt. Dana M. Martillo, shield number 26835 of Transit Division District 30 has some explaining to do.
And people wonder why the Capitol Hill riot was allowed to happen. Cops like her. Just brazen stupidity.
NYPD Sergeant Dana M. Martillo seen having Trump patches on her vest last night...anything political on the uniform is against department policy and also a terrible mask wearer

Apparently, she likes all this overtime she's been getting recently. Shame she had to throw it all away by wearing some dumb Trump patches.
There is only one sergeant in the NYPD payroll with that name, Dana M. Martillo, and they warned $133k last year. Could be same person since only one Martillo in NYPD Payrolls. pic.twitter.com/M6bwMboEEm

UPDATE: The officer has received initial discipline, and there may be more, as there is an ongoing investigation.
Members of the NYPD must remain apolitical — it’s essential to public trust & officers’ ability to perform their jobs. https://t.co/zsTskDO10Z
