Police officers across America are having an incredibly difficult time doing their jobs after even President Obama himself spoke out to condemn them.
After watching this video, you’ll get a new sense of sympathy for the men and women in blue who risk their lives every day in order to protect us.
The footage opens with “police officers from the 30th precinct in Harlem are seen questioning a reported 14-year-old girl over a false alarm on a police call box.”
As the officer tried to lead her away, he was accosted by a mob of thugs who began screaming at him to let her go. Instead of continuing on with his job, the officer did indeed let her go out of fear of inciting a riot.
This led to a larger confrontation where the crowd successfully separated the girl from the police officer and prevented him from taking her into custody. A second undercover police car arrived at 7:38, but both cars left the scene without taking anyone into custody — neither the girl or any of the bystanders seen pushing and shoving the officers in the video…
While what the officer did was wrong, it’s easy to understand why he did it when you look at what has happened in the last few months. There is an all time shortage of police officers, as nobody wants to become one after seeing all the heat they are getting in the press and from the government.
“For the last six or eight years, proactive law enforcement has come to a stop because of shortage of personnel,” said Chuck Canterbury, President of the Fraternal Order of Police.
“I’m hearing it from guys who were go-getters, who would go out here and get the guns and the bad guys and drugs. They’re hands-off now,” a police leader told the press. “I’ve never seen so many dejected faces.”
If people like President Obama don’t stop condemning the police, our entire society may descend into chaos as law enforcement officials will have no motivation to do their job.
Start the video at the 6:15 mark and watch what happens for yourself.
