There isn’t a soul alive who would disagree that this administration, more so than any recent administration, is pro-law enforcement.
That attitude goes from top to bottom, with Attorney General William Barr recently making a statement to affirm just that.
Standing Up for Our Police
The assault against our local police officers started the second Donald Trump took office.
Police are insulted, have debris thrown at them, and are just blatantly attacked.
One of the more disturbing trends we have seen was liberals purposely speeding to lure in a police officer so they could kill the officer.
During the International Association of Chiefs of Police event this week, Barr set the record straight on how he feels about law enforcement and these attacks.
He stated, “Being a police officer is more difficult than it’s ever been before.
“One reason is the emergence of a deeply troubling attitude towards police in some parts of our society.
“Far from respecting the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect us, it is becoming common in some quarters to scapegoat the police … and disparage the vital role played by law enforcement in our society.”
They Can’t Deny the Facts
Liberals and Democrats can try to say their constant verbal assaults against law enforcement are not to blame, but the numbers tell a different story.
Assaults against officers are up by 20 percent.
In 2018, 106 police officers died in the line of duty.
Of those deaths, 11 were killed in ambushes.
This is happening because elected officials are portraying officers as murders and racist, evoking outrage in minority communities.
I am not saying every officer is a good egg, but I would be willing to bet that 99.9 percent of them are.
Wrongful arrests and brutality charges make up a very small percentage of all the arrests and interactions that take place in this country every year, so this is clearly NOT a systemic issue.
We need to get back to respecting our officers, not lumping them in with the criminals, but that probably will not happen anytime soon with Democrats continuing to put the interests of illegal aliens and criminals above that of our law-abiding citizens and residents.
