We’ve seen how president Obama takes great pleasure in using the police for his own personal junk drawer of complaints with his cop bashing.
The president, too often, speaks before he thinks when commenting about the latest incident where an officer was forced to shoot a young black man while he was violently defying instructions and resisting arrest.
Most likely, Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, would not be much different since she comes from the same social philosophy as our current Commander In Chief.
Republican front runner, Donald Trump takes a whole different view of the contributions our police officers make to ensure our safety when they put their lives on the line every day.
To show their appreciation The Fraternal Order of Police, the nations largest police union, has thrown their support behind Trump with a full endorsement.
In a statement from the police union reported in The Hill:
The nation’s largest police union on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for president, lauding his commitment to police officers.
The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) gave the GOP presidential nominee its endorsement after he received support from more than two-thirds of the group’s national board.
“[Trump] has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again,” said Chuck Canterbury, the FOP’s national president.
“He’s made a real commitment to America’s law enforcement and we’re proud to make a commitment to him and his campaign by endorsing his candidacy today.”
When the union approached Hillary Clinton with a questionnaire necessary to win the group’s endorsement she declined to fill it out prompting the police union to interpret it as a snub.
There is a huge dichotomy between the way Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump see the police. The former follows after her predecessor and would probably be responsible for causing more friction between the police and the minority communities which is exactly what we don’t need, right now. Trump, on the other hand, sees them as a valuable asset our communities need to help keep us safe. Hopefully, after this election, Trump’s cooler head will prevail!
