Police Across The Country Slam Trump's Aggressive Law-And-Order Speech

31 July, 2017, 01:09 | Author: Dustin Murphy
  • Police officers laugh at a line by President Donald Trump as he delivers remarks about his proposed U.S. government effort against the street gang Mara Salvatrucha or MS-13 to a gathering of federal state and local law enforcement officials at the Long

During the speech at Suffolk County Community College, Trump encouraged officers to be more violent with criminal suspects.

While thanking the officers on all the great work they do in keeping the streets safe - something we all commend - the president took a nose dive into Trumpsanity suggesting the officers should hit suspects' heads on the doors of their police cars. He described the precautions typically taken by police where they place a hand over a suspect's head while they're being put into a police vehicle to protect them.

A spokeswoman for the Nassau County Police Department said the department had no plans to send a reminder, while the Suffolk County Police Department did not return messages seeking comment.

"Violations of those rules and procedures are treated extremely seriously".

'As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up prisoners'.

Mr. Trump also vowed in his speech to support law enforcement officers by ensuring his administration made surplus military equipment available to police.

While speaking about the administration's efforts to take on global gangs to law enforcement officers at the Suffolk County Community College in Long Island, New York, Trump joked that officers should be rougher with suspects and suggested letting them hit their heads on police cars.


But it didn't stop in NY.

"The Boston Police Department's priority has been and continues to be building relationships and trust with the community we serve". Clearly, some humor is in bad taste and we will surely get some that attack us for seemingly defending the President's words but seriously, is there so much hatred for President Trump and law enforcement that the clear joke can not be seen? "This is the bedrock principle behind the concepts of procedural justice and police legitimacy". He said MS-13 members preferred to knife and cut their victims, so they die slowly and more painfully.

Some police leaders anxious that three sentences uttered by the president during a Long Island speech could upend almost three decades of fence-mending since the 1991 Los Angeles Police Department beating of Rodney King ushered in an era of distrust of police.

During his speech, the president told police to not be too easy on suspects who have been arrested. "No act of police violence or other misconduct, where proven, will go unanswered by the CCRB".

"Like, don't hit their head, and they just killed somebody - don't hit their head", Trump continued.

The Los Angeles Police Department also released a statement regarding Trump's speech.
