New York City Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate bragged Wednesday night on the presidential debate stage about overseeing America’s largest police force, only for news to break Thursday that the fourth NYPD officer to commit suicide in three weeks was found dead in his Long Island home.

“Ofc. Kevin Preiss, a 24-year veteran assigned to the 50th Precinct in the Bronx who has a wife and several children, shot himself at his home on Long Island, law enforcement sources familar [sic] with the investigation told News 4 Thursday,” according to NBC4.

In what is quickly becoming a crisis, NYPD officers are committing suicide at an alarming rate. Preiss reportedly had a shining record of service that included saving a man’s life after the man had a heart attack in a Dunkin’ Donuts shortly before Christmas in 2016.

Conservative commentators were quick to note that NYPD officers loathe de Blasio after he used the talking point to bolster his credibility during Wednesday’s debate.

“True, Bill De Blasio does oversee the largest police force in the country. Also true, NYC police hate his guts,” Andrew Surabian said.

“De Blasio says he runs the largest police force in the country, leaves out the small detail that they CANNOT STAND HIM,” Chicks On The Right said.

De Blasio has little chance of winning the Democratic Primary. He is currently polling between zero and one percent in major national polls.
