Speaking at his daily press conference on Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed the Sergeants Benevolent Association, a police union with which he has had a running feud, snapping that they “foment hatred.”
De Blasio was asked, “The March across the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday ended up also being joined by the Sergeants Benevolent Association and Blue Lives Matter. Can you comment about that, noting your history, particularly with the SBA?”
[…] “Look, I don’t know everything about the march. My understanding is that was started by community people who are concerned to make sure their community is safe, and I respect that greatly,” de Blasio answered, continuing, “And that’s what I talked about in the opening today, we have to keep communities safe, get community and police work in together and address the need to constantly reform the NYPD.
