New York City’s police union is demanding more information about the effects of toxic debris from the 9/11 attacks.
The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association called on the city to release all data about officers who suffered cancer after responding at the World Trade Center at a news conference on Sunday.
The union also showed the uniform worn that day by Officer Alonzo Harris.
It was tested and found to have dangerous carcinogens on it.
These first responders deserve the absolute best, in terms of clear information as to what they were exposed to, and the best possible treatment available against the carcinogens they encountered, trying to bring the wounded to safety, and searching for bodies.
And please remember; Christie Todd Whitman and President Bush assured them it was “safe” to do the work they did, when the reality on the ground contradicted that in every way.
