The NY Post reported that a Bronx teen who apparently blared a vulgar song from his apartment during the NYPD funeral services for Officer Miosotis Familia has been evicted.

The teen was reported to have been playing the song "F--- tha Police" high above the funeral procession. Officers' attempts to have the song stopped were unsuccessful.

After hearing about the incident the superintendent of the apartment, Danny Morales, ordered the teen removed from the premises.

Morales said, “I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.”

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is facing intense criticism for skipping out on a slain NYPD officer's vigil to attend a G20 protest in Germany.

NYPD Sergeants Union President Ed Mullins stated, “New York City is right now mourning the loss of a police officer who was dedicated to the City of New York, and we have our mayor who has just gone to Germany to join protesters. Is this the type of city we want to live in?"

Mullins added, "Where we are failing is in political leadership."

Officer Miosotis Familia was shot and killed in an ambush attack early Wednesday morning. 

Mayor de Blasio left New York shortly after Officer Familia's shooting in order to participate in protests against the G20 meeting in Germany.
