Updated on

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a temporary halt in protests against law enforcement as he sought to defuse tension that erupted after the weekend shooting deaths of two police officers.

“It’s a time for everyone to take stock and recognize there are things that unite us, things that we hold dear as Americans,” de Blasio said today in a speech to the Police Athletic League.
