The Sergeants Benevolent Association attacked New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Twitter on Thursday, saying the 2020 candidate is “filled with trash” after he tweeted his condolences over the demise of an officer on Long Island, and calling him out for some comments made during Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate.
An off-duty Bronx police officer had committed suicide in his residence Thursday, the fourth to do so this month. De Blasio had this to say by way of Twitter following the information: “We’re devastated by the information out of the NYPD this morning. An officer took his own life — one of four in recent weeks. The job of defending this metropolis calls for a lot from the officers who serve. Our city is right here for them.”
The SBA responded to the tweet with its own: “Your full of shi-! You bashed every cop within the country last night in the DNC debate. You utilize cops on your own gain. Truth is you could care less about cops, so save the sympathy card for the clowns who believe your cr–.”
Throughout Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, up against nine different presidential contestant , de Blasio hinted to unfair and violence against minorities by police officers.
The president of the Police Benevolent Association , Patrick Lynch, launched a statement condemning the mayor’s remarks.
Lynch added, “By rolling out that rhetoric again on a national stage, it’s clear he wants to take the nation down the same path.”
De Blasio has drawn the anger of law enforcement all through his tenure in office, dealing with the allegation that he doesn’t have officers’ backs.
