One of New York City's police unions is opposing the city's bid to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
 
The city wants to host the political convention at the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn.
 
The Sergeants Benevolent Association took out a full page ad Tuesday in The New York Times to declare that it would not support the bid.
 
The ad claims that the city is "lurching backwards to the bad old days of high crime."
