Police leaders reject President’s remarks

Several police leaders have repudiated President Trump’s recent speech before a Long Island, NY police audience. In his statement, Chief Thomas Manger of the Major City-County Chiefs Association says “those remarks just confirmed to those who don’t like or trust the police that we give a wink and a nod to excessive force. We don’t. And anyone that does should not be wearing a badge.” He adds “As a cop for the past 40 years, I was appalled when I heard the President of the United States condone injuring an individual in police custody. This violates our Constitution, our Department policy, and the public trust.”
