Cops once again turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio at a police funeral.
Scores of officers who assembled for assassinated Police Officer Miosotis Familia on Tuesday showed Hizzoner their backs during the mayor’s eulogy — a move reminiscent of the funeral for slain Officer Wenjian Liu in 2015.
Many also chatted with one another or swiped through their phones during the mayoral snub.
The protest comes after de Blasio skipped town for Germany on Thursday — the day after Familia was assassinated by cop-hating gunman Alexander Bonds.
“Mr. Mayor, you didn’t have to travel to Germany for a protest, all you had to do is speak in front of the men and women of the NYPD,” Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins said.
Police promptly turned back around when it was announced the police commissioner was next to speak — but not all resumed paying attention.
