Spring woman says ‘Blue Lives Murder’ shirts for sale on Amazon are hate speech. Activist disagrees

SPRING, Texas – A Spring woman wants Amazon to remove several shirts for sale emblazoned with the phrase “Blue Lives Murder.”

“All of it is just very offensive,” said Ceteka Perry.

For Perry, it’s personal because her son is a police officer in Utah. She said she’s an Amazon customer who called the company to complain.

“I know they're very much Black Lives Matter and that's fine. They can have that be their agenda but to say that blue lives murder, to me that's hate speech,” said Perry.

The San Antonio Police Officers Association agrees.

On Twitter, they wrote “selling incendiary shirts like these is not only an insult to police officers, but a form of hate speech that foments violence against them.”

However, an organizer with Black Lives Matter Houston says the words are the truth.

“Blue lives murder is not hate speech. It is, in fact, telling the truth,” said Ashton P. Woods.
