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.

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.

UPDATE: The officer has received initial discipline, and there may be more, as there is an ongoing investigation.

Can you help us out?
