De Blasio: Hold Off on Protests



New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asked protesters to hold off on demonstrations until the families of murdered police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu had time to mourn.

“I would ask any organizations that are planning any events about politics or protests, let’s do that another day,” he said at the Police Athletic League December luncheon Monday.

Over the weekend, the head of the New York police union accused De Blasio of having blood on his hands and claimed the mayor incited violence against cops. Read more at NBC News.
