Ever since the race riots began in late 2014, Obama has made it clear that he is on the side of the protesters, rather than the U.S. police.
Just a few weeks ago, the president publicly turned his back on American police officers when he blamed them for the violent riots spreading throughout the country, instead of blaming the looters themselves. Soon after that, Obama announced plans to force police officers to wear “soft look” uniforms to make them appear less threatening and less “racist.”
Now, Obama’s Department of Justice has issued a series of new rules for police that will only make it more difficult to do their jobs and protect the public.
Ronald L. Davis, a former police chief who heads the DOJ’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, issued a ridiculous statement this week in which he spoke about how police can “prevent” themselves from shooting suspects.
“Police need to stop chasing down suspects, hopping fences and landing on top of someone with a gun,” Davis said. “When they do that, they have no choice but to shoot.”
Yes, you read that right: the Obama administration now wants police to stop chasing thugs who have guns. It’s unclear what they want them to do instead…Perhaps Obama wants the cops to ask the thugs politely, “excuse me sir, can you please drop your gun? Thanks!”
This will only make it more difficult for cops to do their jobs, and make it easier for thugs to escape them and cause chaos in the community. It’s sickening that our president would rather help criminals than the people who risk their lives for us every day…
