FBI Raided NYPD Union (SBA) – Sergeants Benevolent Association and Home of Its Controversial Leader

The FBI raided the NYPD’s SBA- Sergeant’s Benevolent Association headquarters in Manhattan Tuesday, as well as the home of their leader on Long Island, Ed Mullins. Ed has been an outspoken critic of just about everyone from Mayor Bill De Blasio to the City Health Department. He is President of the 5th largest police union in the United States – a union of around 11,000 members, and has been in that position since 2002.

The corruption unit of the FBI served a search warrant on the SBA office on Tuesday. According to media reports, they left with several boxes. They also visited Mullins’ private residence on Long Island. The only comment the FBI made was that it involved an investigation.

Ed Mullins is paid both by the NYPD and the SBA Police union. The rules state that he must be an active Sergeant with the department. He doesn’t appear to have a regular post, according to MSN. It could be considered ”fraud” if he’s in violation of that rule, but no one is talking about whether that’s why he is under scrutiny. If it’s for his opinions, they’re likely to lose in a court case.

As of October 4th, Mullins accused Mayor De Blasio of trying to bust the law enforcement unions by hiring private contractors to handle Rikers Correctional Facility. The Correctional Officers Benevolent Association (COBA) has been sounding alarms over the move. Rikers is an incredibly dangerous place to work, and several corrections personnel have been seriously injured. So the city now plans to hire a private security firm to handle it- which has prompted a lawsuit by COBA.

The ”incendiary” remarks of the SBA president

Mullins came under fire in 2020 when he posted the arrest report of de Blasio’s daughter, Chiara de Blasio, on social media following her arrest during George Floyd protests. Mullins was hit with departmental charges for the violation of NYPD rules.

In another instance during the pandemic, Mullins tweeted that the city’s health commissioner was a “b—h” who had “blood on her hands” after she sparred with the NYPD over half a million hospital-grade face masks.

He is an outspoken backer of President Donald Trump and visited Trump at the White House in February 2020. He grabbed headlines in July 2020 for giving an interview on Fox News with a QAnon coffee mug in the background.

In a piece written earlier this summer for the MailOnline, the Greenwich Village native tore into the soon-to-depart mayor’s two terms in City Hall.

“Since first taking office in 2014, de Blasio’s incendiary anti-police rhetoric has already resulted in three police officers being executed while sitting in police vehicles, Molotov cocktails being lobbed at officers and into police vehicles, armed assaults on police facilities, cops being pelted with debris, and wholesale damage to police and public property,” he wrote.

New York Daily News

Mullins appears to be a little “incendiary” himself. But being outspoken is one thing, being accused of corruption is quite another. All of the media reports made sure to include that he was a supporter of Donald Trump, as if that was some sort of indictment against him. A tour through the SBA Twitter feed shows nothing of note, and calling politicians and their cohorts names comes with the territory. Has Ed Mullins of the SBA actually committed a crime worthy of the FBI corruption unit? Or is this yet another political circus?
