De Blasio defends Sharpton remark

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is defending provocative comments made by the Rev. Al Sharpton at City Hall during a roundtable about police conduct on Thursday.

Sharpton believes choke holds, which are banned, are used disproportionately on minorities.

He said that de Blasio's teenage son, whose mother is black, would be a candidate for a choke hold if he weren't the mayor's son.

De Blasio said he was not offended.
