Obama, Lynch Need to Keep Their Mouths Shut
Clarke Compares Obama to Pyromaniac Going Back To Watch Fires He Set
Maria Bartiromo reports that the Fraternal Order of Police is asking the DOJ to investigate the massacre in Dallas as a hate crime. One potential problem she notes is that the Justice Department’s definition of a hate crime does not include acts against the police. That’s an easy one to fix, Loretta Lynch can change the definition. The regime change or invalidates federal law unilaterally, how hard can one definition be?
Bill Johnson, the Executive Director of the National Association of Police Organizations, and Sheriff David Clarke join her in a discussion, with Johnson first pointing out the incredible amount of hatred that is being heaped upon law enforcement officers from all directions. He says, “Certainly there is a lot of hatred evidenced against the officers themselves.” He says the level of attacks nationwide is indicative of the level of hatred that exists nationwide and that it is taking place in many instances irrespective of the skin color of the officers.
He states how officers across the nation are disappointed in the lack of leadership, the lack of public support, the lack of equipment and the lack of trust that the ‘president’ and the Attorney General shown in the way they treat police officers.
Sheriff Clarke says that there is an elephant in the room that too many people want to talk around. It’s the issue that is the real problem. Clarke leads the way noting that it is crime that leads to so many instances of the interactions between young black males and police, because it is police that respond to criminal activity. Clarke says, “Ask yourself who is over-represented in involvement in violent crime – young black males. Now that might be an ugly truth but it’s still the truth,” says Clarke.
Both men highlight the corrective actions that need to be taken, and as for statements coming out of the Oval Office, Obama can do us all a favor and just dummy up. Neither law enforcement professional is interested in what Obama has to say or the lecturing tone and spirit of depravity in which it is delivered.
