Several hundred New York City police officers turned away in protest Tuesday morning as the mayor delivered his eulogy at the Bronx funeral of slain Officer Miosotis Familia.

The demonstration of contempt was spurred by the mayor’s excursion to Germany to join anti-Trump protesters at the G20 summit one day after last Wednesday’s execution of 12-year NYPD vet Familia. Photos showed hundreds of police officers standing on the Grand Concourse with their backs to the World Changers Church as the mayor’s speech was heard via the public address system.

“The mayor is the compass for the City of New York,” Patrick Lynch, head of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said to the New York Daily News before the funeral. “And unfortunately, when a police officer got killed, his compass led him to Germany rather than here on the Grand Concourse. “He should have been here with the family. … He should have been there with us.”
