A week after getting slammed by the police officers union for staying mum in the face of a radio caller who disparaged cops as “racist in their hearts,” Mayor Bill de Blasio course-corrected when another caller demeaned cops.
The caller into WNYC radio, identified as Shahid in Bedford-Stuyvesant, described the NYPD as a historically white supremacist institution on Thursday and said it was sending killer cops into black neighborhoods.
This time, the mayor objected.
“I respectfully disagree with that characterization 100 percent. There have been some tragic incidents over time … but I think you’re absolutely mis-characterizing the bigger situation,” de Blasio said.
