NYPD Union Chief Palladino: Beyoncé Should Focus on Black-on-Black Crime

Beyoncé should have channeled her criticism of police in her latest song toward black-on-black violence instead, a New York City police union chief says.

"Beyoncé’s message about 'Black Lives Matter' was misdirected," NYC Detectives' Endowment Association President Michael Palladino said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York She should direct her message where it’s needed the most – and that’s in the 'hood."

The perpetrators of crime and violence against people of color are not police officers, but "other people of color," Palladino, who heads New York's second-largest police union, told host John Catsimatidis.

"If the Black Lives Matter movement really wants to make a difference, they should pour the medicine directly on the wound," he said. "Get to the bottom of why people of color prey on other people of color."

Beyoncé performed her latest single "Formation," at last week's Super Bowl halftime show. She released the video a day earlier. Critics say it unfairly criticizes police, as one scene in the video has a young black boy dancing in front of white police officers. The words "Stop Shooting Us" are spray painted on a nearby wall.
