REPORT: De Blasio blames peace officers for tearing baby from mom’s arms

Mayor de Blasio and the PBA on Wednesday blamed the peace officers for escalating the melee in which a Brooklyn mom’s baby was ripped from her arms — but the guards’ union said Hizzoner is just afraid of upsetting the cops.

“By the time the NYPD arrived, this situation was already out of hand and should not have been,” de Blasio said in an unrelated press conference. “That was because of the mistaken actions, in my opinion, of the HRA peace officers.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Jazmine Headley got into a spat with Human Resources Administration guards inside a Boerum Hill benefits center on Friday because, with no chairs available, she and her 1-year-old son were sitting on the floor, her lawyers have said.

When she didn’t immediately comply with the guards’ orders that she either stand up or leave, they called the NYPD, whose officers were caught on video wresting Headley’s baby son from her arms.

But while de Blasio reserved judgment on the NYPD pending its internal probe, he went out of his way to rap the HRA’s response.

“I don’t know specifically to the HRA or the peace officers, what type of training is provided in terms of de-escalation. … I do know the norm has been, the thing we believe in, is de-escalation,” he said. “But even without the benefit of that training, common sense tells you, ‘Don’t treat a mom with a baby that way. Period.’”
