You’ve got to be kidding me.
The New York Police Union literally endorsed President Trump but now they are punishing a police officer for wearing a pro-Trump patch.
Sergeant Dana Martillo was spotted wearing MAGA and Trump Make Enforcement Great Again patches at a Brooklynn Black Lives Matter protest.
Pictures of sergeant Martillo wearing the pro-Trump patches surfaced on the web and of course, the cancel culture crowd found the photos and reported Martillo to her superiors.

Here’s the video that got the cancel culture all riled up:
This is Sergeant Dana Martillo, an @NYPDnews officer wearing a Trump patch and the notorious Punisher patch which is a gang insignia within the #NYPD. Sergeant Martillo needs to be removed from duty immediately.

The New York Post was the first to cover the story and had this to share:
The NYPD is disciplining an officer who wore a “politically-oriented patch” while on duty — a day after video surfaced of a sergeant sporting a “Trump Make Enforcement Great Again 2020” patch at a Brooklyn protest.
The female sergeant was spotted at a Black Lives Matter demonstration Friday night outside a precinct in Ft. Greene, wearing a patch which plays off former President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, video posted online from the event shows.
The patch featured the skull emblem of Marvel Comics character The Punisher — tweaked to sport a Trump-style coif.
The cop, identified by the Sergeants Benevolent Association on Twitter as Dana Martillo, wore a second patch featuring the Punisher skull.

Fox 5 News covered the story too:
The NYPD said Saturday that they have disciplined an officer who wore a “politically oriented patch” after a video on social media showed an on-duty sergeant wearing a “Trump – Make Enforcement Great Again 2020” patch at a protest.
The patch, which features a stylized skull emblem originating with the Marvel Comics character The Punisher, was spotted Friday night on a sergeant at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Brooklyn, according to the New York Post.
I like the patch, what do you guys think?
