While the governor says he stands with the protesters - police across the state are pushing back.    

The New York State Troopers PBA wrote an open letter to the governor, saying they find it appalling he hasn't condemned the violence directed at them.

"We will continue to answer the call, we will put on our uniform every day- we will do whatever we are asked to do, however it would be nice to hear, again, from the top executive that he understands the job we are doing and what we are doing,” said New York State Trooper PBA President Thomas Mungeer.     

The union says troopers will protect everyone's right to protest - but once people engage in criminal activity, it is no longer a protest, but a riot.
