The clergy may have reason to be upset with the mayor for not talking to them, but I don't think they have a right to draw a line in the sand about the New York Police Commissioner. There may be the need to reasonable conversation about several issues here, but why a church or any other group demands specific things happen or else, this is the tail wagging the dog and you can not kow tow to every one of these requests. Especially in a city the size of New York. If you did then nothing lasting would ever get done. Reverend Butts needs to be part of the solution, not just another problem. I believe that he could accomplish this, but not by this threat.
