NYPD precinct mocked for praising cop in lewd Punisher mask

An Upper West Side NYPD precinct was mocked on Twitter for praising for a cop’s arrest — while he posed in a Punisher mask bearing shorthand for “Does it look like I give a f–k.”

The photo was posted on the 24 Precinct’s official Twitter account Sunday afternoon but was deleted an hour after The Post asked about the tweet Monday.

“After observing a traffic infraction, @NYPD24Pct‘s PO Kite & PO Rodriguez conducted a car stop, which led to a foot pursuit & an arrest,” the tweet read. “It turns out that the suspect was operating a stolen vehicle & wanted for a past robbery. Great work.”

In the photo, Officer Rodriguez is donning a mask with the symbol for the comic book character, The Punisher —  a law enforcement officer turned vigilante who murders with impunity.

The mask also has the abbreviation “DILLIGAF,” which stands for “Does it look like I give a f–k.”

Users dragged the precinct on Twitter for allowing the cop to wear the mask.

“Please hear this if you can- That punisher stuff is literally emblematic of what’s wrong with this picture,” one user wrote in response.

“Nice job getting a robber and car thief off the street— but next time do it without symbolism that says “I’m judge/jury/executioner.” Read the comic- he’s not a good cop.

Another wrote: “Is that guy wearing a Punisher mask? This is why New Yorkers don’t trust the NYPD.”

It was unclear if the mask violated NYPD guidelines or if the officer could face discipline. The NYPD did not immediately respond.
