Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio talks with ‘Fox News @ Night.’

DETROIT-cops-NYPD, turned out Wednesday to protest New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s appearance at the 2020 Democratic primary debate, calling on him to return to the Big Apple, to negotiate with the men and women in blue, and “finish the job that he ran.”

“Not the city, not govern the country” in about 20 New York sang officers outside the Fox theatre in Detroit, where Hizzoner face off against nine rivals in the second night of the primary-debates on Wednesday. Also they wore accused of characters to help him fail, the homeless New Yorkers, cutting-city-workers-health-and putting “working people last.”


“Mayor de Blasio,” they sang. “No friend of labor!”

The de Blasio campaign declined to comment.

The cops, who traveled from New York, told Fox News that out-of-contract speak for almost two years no increase, and that de Blasio wanted to throws, which is far below the rate of inflation. The protest was organized by the New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA), the officers of which represents 24,000 rank-and-file.

“We are here to tell our mayor that he should come back and finish the job that he ran,” Officer Joseph Alejandro said on Fox News. “He ran to the mayor of New York City, and now, he’s not doing this run, we know why, but he has a lot of unfinished work in this city, and one of the things is, he should be in negotiations with us.”

“He runs further and further away from us … so we are going to chase him, as much as we need to, we will make sure that he knows that he should go back to the table and his job,” he said.

The mayor has a consistently bad relationship with his officers. In the year 2017, the officers, his back turned to him, as he spoke at the funeral of a murdered officer. Police have not accused, to secure him for years. Incidents of the officers is doused with water in New York city neighborhoods fueled tensions, but de Blasio has condemned these attacks.


But officials told Fox News that the main problem, you pay for the goods, with a focus on Detroit, they claim they are about 30 percent behind the average of the other local police departments.

“There are a lot of things, but this is the primary, it means nothing unless you can put food on the table for their family,” Alejandro.

De Blasio has fought to calm relations with the officers. In a primary debate last month, de Blasio again referenced how he had spoken with his son Dante about “how to protect yourself in the streets of our city … including the fact that he has to take,, special precautions, because it’s been too many tragedies between young men and our police.”

If a day later, he tweeted his condolences about an officer who took his life, the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) called him “full of s—.”

“They threw every cop in the country last night in the DNC debate. They use police for their own gain,” the SBA account tweeted. “The truth is, you could care less about cops, so save the sympathy-card for the clowns who believe that their cr–.”

He is not the only presidential candidate to, followed by his own cops. The police in South Bend, Ind., were upset about the way mayor Pete Buttigieg officer treated involved shooting in the city, and the subsequent remarks, in which he said that policing was carried out in the framework of the “shadow of racism.”

But de Blasio, a breakout must remain moment quickly in the presidential race, or at least on the debate stage, past the summer. A Fox News poll found published last week that his support was only 1 percent.

Fox News asked Alejandro what he’s de Blasio would ask on the debate stage.

“Why don’t you do the lack of respect for police officers in your own city, you also sit with them and negotiate a contract?”, he said.
