Pirro told to zip it
Chattering outside church has officers fuming at her

Gov. Pataki (l.) Mayor Bloomberg, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani join other officials in paying respects to slain Officer Daniel Enchautegui.
-->Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro was seen giggling and chatting outside a Bronx church after the funeral Mass for slain Police Officer Danny Enchautegui - spurring outrage from cops.
One officer brusquely told her to "shut up," prompting Pirro to zip her lips and snap to attention just after the flag-draped coffin holding Enchautegui was placed into a nearby hearse.
While grim-faced Finest stood ramrod-straight, Pirro drew glares from the hero cop's fellow officers when they spotted her giggling and chatting with state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno (R-Rensselaer).
"She should have kept her mouth shut and showed some respect," said one disgusted high-ranking member of the NYPD.
Fumed another officer: "It was bad timing. Everyone is waiting for the family to leave. The family is trying to be strong. We're all still in formation. It was out of line."
A Pirro campaign spokesman denied last night that any cop told her to keep quiet outside the church.
Joining Bruno and Pirro in the church were Gov. Pataki, Mayor Bloomberg and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Missing, though, was Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Albany), who is facing new accusations from GOP lawmakers of blocking a package of bills mandating prison terms for certain illegal gun traffickers.
Silver aides refused to say precisely where the speaker was during the funeral. Silver attended Enchautegui's wake Tuesday.
The aides noted that Silver had phone talks with Bruno and Pataki yesterday in a bid to reach a compromise after the Daily News turned up the heat on Albany's big three to stop the bickering and pass new laws protecting cops.
The key to ending the snarl is Silver, said state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx), who attended the funeral and represents the neighborhood where Enchautegui was slain.
"He's portraying to everyone that Democrats are not tough on crime - and that's not true," said Klein, who said a Pataki gun crackdown package "would pass overwhelmingly" if Silver simply allowed an Assembly vote.
Meanwhile, Assembly Minority Leader Jim Tedisco (R-Schenectady) urged Silver to hold an immediate special session to deal with the gun measures and laws called for under The News' Stop Crimes Against Cops Campaign.
"The problem is he's got a base in his Democratic conference who don't believe in tougher penalties, and that base seems to have his ear right now," said a frustrated Tedisco.
But Silver is keeping the current schedule of having Assembly members return to the Capitol after New Year's Day.
"We are trying to put together something we can pass by early next year," Silver spokesman Skip Carrier said.
