Not all cops

2017-07-28 19:30:10.809085+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

RT Kyle Griffin‏ @kylegriffin1:

Here's the moment: Trump suggests it's OK for police to rough up the people that they arrest.

(Has an NBC News video excerpt of Trump's speech to Suffolk County Police today)

When they talk about "not all cops"? How many cops in that audience booed this? How many at least stood silent? Fuck "not all cops".

Not all of us see the need to wear our partisan politics on our sleeves. It is permissible to respectfully listen to a speech by the president without screaming invective at him, no matter how strongly felt.

Did you hear the cheers for that line?

If there had been no cheering for that line, or at least less of it, I'd have just been disgusted with the President.

As it is, it's good to see that there's some pushback from good cops: RT Suffolk County PD @SCPDHq:

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

And Ben Tobias? @GPDBenTobias on behalf of the Gainesville Police Department:

I'm a cop.

I do not agree with or condone @POTUS remarks today on police brutality.

Those that applauded and cheered should be ashamed.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
