Hundreds expected to attend slain officer's funeral on Saturday

Hundreds, possibly thousands, of mourners, are anticipated to honor fallen NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller at his funeral on Saturday. The procession is set to commence at 10:30 a.m. at St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church in Massapequa, the same Nassau County community where Diller's two-day wake is underway. Following the service, Diller will be laid to rest at St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale.

The event is expected to draw thousands of police officers and supporters of the NYPD, as well as various elected officials. The somber occasion will be marked by traditional rituals and ceremonies.

However, the Sergeants Benevolent Association issued a warning to politicians critical of law enforcement to refrain from attending the funeral. President Vincent Vallelong urged them to "stay home and not pretend they are grieving," suggesting tensions surrounding the event.

The funeral serves as a moment for the community to come together in solidarity, paying respects to an officer who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. It underscores the deep sense of loss felt by the NYPD and the broader community, while also highlighting the complexities and controversies surrounding law enforcement in contemporary society.
