SAN ANTONIO, TX — The San Antonio Police Association is calling out Amazon for selling "incendiary shirts" featuring the slogan "Blue Lives Murder".

The SAPOA tweeted that they see the shirts as a form of hate speech. In addition to the "Blue Lives Murder" phrase, one of the shirts also features a police officer with a baton raised preparing to hit a pair of hands stretching out to them.

The controversial slogan appears to be a take on the popular "Black Lives Matter" slogan that has been prominently featured in protests nationwide in recent weeks. The shirts with the alternative "Blue Lives Murder" t-shirts are being sold through third-party sellers and not directly from Amazon.
