For the last few weeks Obama has been making a series of moves against U.S. police, as well as condemning them for targeting “poor, African Americans.”
Now, Obama is trying to ease tension between police and the communities they serve by forcing them to dress “soft look” uniforms.
While visiting Camden, New Jersey this week, Obama announced that he would be banning the police from using certain military hardware and also restricting their use of riot shields and equipment.
“We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people the feeling like there’s an occupied force, as opposed to a force that is part of that community it is protecting and serving,” Obama said in his speech, according to Conservative Tribune.
The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing has recommended a “soft look” uniform in the hopes of making police look less intimidating and “racist.”
This is yet another example of Obama turning on American police. How are police supposed to protect themselves in the middle of riots without the proper gear to protect themselves? On top of that, Obama is forcing them to wear “soft” uniforms so that they will look like a joke to race baiters.
Stories like this only fuel the fire of race rioters. They know the president is on their side, and they love that now police will not be able to protect themselves from attack.
Shame on you, Mr. President!
