Over the last few weeks, U.S. police officers have been eviscerated all across the country by angry liberals. Even President Obama himself has turned on American police officers, blaming the cops in Baltimore for the violent riots there rather than the protesters themselves.
Now, cops in Baltimore are having trouble doing their jobs because they are so “fearful” about what will happen to them. With even the president turning on them, they know there is nobody to protect them if something goes wrong for them on the job.
While appearing on Hannity Wednesday night, Wicomico County, MD Sheriff Mike Lewis (R) explained that officers have become too “fearful” to do their jobs:
“Sean, the Baltimore City Police Department, the officers particularly on the street, have been eviscerated, they’ve been disemboweled, their guts removed to have the courage to go out there and do this job. They’re very fearful that if they go out there and be proactive, which we all should be doing in law enforcement today, we can’t afford to be reactive, especially in urban areas. Those officers are no longer being proactive, and as you see, the violence has surged. … And I hope this is a shot fired across the bow of mayors and urban leaders across this country. Once you disembowel your law enforcement officers, then you cannot no longer expect them to go out there and protect you, or protect your communities. This is very troubling the worst I’ve ever seen in 31 years of law enforcement.”
“I’m hearing it all the time,” he concluded. “They’re [police officers] fearful at doing their jobs.”
This comes just after Obama announced plans to make American cops even weaker by taking away some of their weapons and forcing them to wear “soft look” uniforms so that they don’t look as intimidating.
How can we expect police officers to do their job, which is to protect us, if even their own president is against them?? Something needs to change here, because if police continue to be afraid to do their jobs, our country will only descend into chaos.
