Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA) President Pat Lynch’s Queens home Wednesday, days after the union endorsed President Donald Trump.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) set up barricades around Lynch’s home while protesters slammed Lynch during the hour long protest, according to videos posted by Angélica M. Acevedo, a reporter at QNS.

At one point, the crowd shouts “NYPD, suck my d–k” and “all cops are bastards”, according to another video.

Lynch said the protesters were wasting their time, according to the New York Post.

“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. 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.”

“It also isn’t helping New Yorkers who feel under siege after months of brutal violence on our streets. Our neighborhoods want cops focused on stopping the bloodshed, not wrangling a bunch of protesters who biked in from Manhattan,” Lynch continued.

Lynch’s neighbors said barricades have been set up near Lynch’s home for several weeks, according to NY1. (RELATED: There Were 15 Shootings In 15 Hours In New York City)

The unidentified neighbors say the protest involved vulgar language, but was a peaceful demonstration, per NY1.

The PBA endorsed Trump on Friday in what is believed to be the organization’s first presidential endorsement in history.

“We need your strong voice across the country to say, ‘We have the support of law enforcement across this country,'” Lynch said.

Lynch has been an outspoken critic of New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, claiming they have “given the street back to the criminal” while blasting the city’s decision to cut $1 billion from the NYPD.
