The New York City police union was not too thrilled with Mayor Bill de Blasio after his remarks during the Democratic debates last week, calling his statements "hypocritical" and "divisive."

De Blasio, in his attempt to pander to African-American voters, talked about his black son when discussing racial tensions between people of color and police officers:

Something that sets me apart from all my colleagues running in this race and that is for the last 21 years I've been raising a black son in America. I have had to have very, very serious talks with my son...including how to deal with the fact that he has to take special caution.

A spokeperson for the Police Benevolent Association told the Daily Caller, "His public remarks about his son only inflamed the false narrative being pushed by race baiters that was based upon lies. We believe that his contribution to the false narrative resulted in the assassination of three of our members, Police Officer Liu, Ramos and Familia."

The spokesperson continued, "They were all murdered by violent people who bought into the false rhetoric that police are intentionally killing black men for no reason. They were executed because they wore the blue uniform of a NYC police officer."

The union also criticized de Blasio for calling for higher minimum wage while not raising pay for NYPD officers and cutting benefits while giving himself a raise.
