Amazon has created a stir with law enforcement. The company is selling “Blue Lives Murder” merchandise nearly one year after other anti-police gear first came to light.

The Detectives’ Endowment Association wrote a letter demanding Amazon stop selling the items.

“It has come to my attention that your website is selling tee-shirts (sic) and other items emblazoned with the words ‘Blue Lives Murder,’” reads part of the letter, according to The New York Post.

Since the Post wrote the story, Amazon has seemingly stopped selling the items.

A Staten Island detective told The Post Amazon is “perpetrating anti-police rhetoric.”
