Over the last few months, President Obama has shown a complete lack of regard or respect for American police officers.
Recently, Obama made headlines when he blamed the U.S. police for the Baltimore riots, rather than the violent looters themselves.
This week, as law enforcement officers in Washington D.C. enjoy their annual police week, police admitted to the Daily Caller that the anti-police climate in the U.S. has taken it’s toll on many officers.
“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.
Many cops say that fear of political and legal backlash has caused them to take a step back in their jobs.
“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 shift commander told the Sun. “I’ve never seen so many dejected faces.”
Obama is scheduled to speak at the National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol, and many police officers who will be attending have said that they plan to turn their backs on the president who turned his back on them. Canterbury, however, does not think that most of the cops will go through with it.
“This event is not to honor the president of the United States. It’s to honor the officers who have been slain in the line of duty,” he said. “And I think the vast majority of police officers in attendance understand that the National Police Officers Memorial Service is to honor those in our brotherhood that have passed away and that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. No, we don’t anticipate that happening.”
We applaud our nation’s police officers for outclassing Barack Obama once again. We thank you guys for everything you do for us!
