(Massapequa Park, NY) — New York Governor Kathy Hochul says she did the right thing paying her respects at the wake of murdered NYPD cop Jonathan Diller on Friday.  Hochul insists the Diller family did not ask her to leave, as was reported in the “New York Post”. The governor does say she was confronted by an angry mourner on the way out of the funeral home in Massapequa. The Post reports that mourner told Hochul that she had Diller’s blood on her hands. The NYPD says officer Diller was killed in the line of duty Monday by a career criminal. 34-year-old Guy Rivera, who has 21 priors, allegedly shot Diller during a traffic stop in Queens last Monday. Rivera has been charged with murder.

Thousands of police officers from the NYPD and around the country said goodbye to officer Jonathan Diller at a service in Massapequa on Saturday morning. Hundreds of mourners packed Saint Rose of Lima Church for the funeral of the fallen NYPD officer.  Diller’s widow Stephanie received a standing ovation as she stood to deliver an emotional eulogy. She demanded an immediate change to New York’s criminal justice system, which she and many others blame for her husband’s death.
