Protesters held a rally outside the Bayside home of New York City Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch Wednesday night.

Dozens of Black Lives Matter demonstrators turned out to show their disdain for Lynch whose union last week endorsed President Donald Trump for this year’s November election.

The protesters were greeted by a large number of cops who had set up barricades on the street.

The event went on for a little over an hour, with protesters on megaphones lambasting Lynch and the NYPD calling them racists and murderers.

Lynch released a statement following the rally.

“New York City police officers will protect your right to protest wherever it can be done safely and legally, including in front of my house,” Lynch said.

“But these protesters should realize they are wasting their time. Their campaign of harassment and intimidation might have the politicians running scared, but it will have zero impact on the PBA.”

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
