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.”
