According to Yahoo News, after a video of NYPD police officers turning their back on New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio went viral over the weekend, the city’s Police Commission Bill Bratton says he does not support “that particular activity.”

The officers were waiting at a Brooklyn hospital where the two policemen were being treated after being shot in their patrol car by a lone gunman who officials say was out for revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown of Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner of Staten Island, NY.

“I don’t support that particular activity,” Bratton said on NBC’s “Today” show of the back-turning.  “I don’t think it was appropriate, particularly in that setting, but it’s reflective of the anger of some of them.”
