A few months ago, President Obama officially turned on American police officers when he blamed them for the violent race riots spreading throughout the country, instead of blaming the protesters themselves.
Since then, 23 police officers have been gunned down in the line of duty. Even more cops have been killed off-duty, as race-baiting thugs are constantly launching attacks on police because “Obama said they could.”
Sick and tired of the way Obama has been treating police officers in this country, a group of cops in New England decided to take a stand. According to The Boston Herald, the New England Police Benevolent Association boycotted President Obama’s Labor Day speech in Boston yesterday.
Jerry Flynn, a cop who is on leave while he serves as executive director of the NEPBA, said that the police officers are boycotting the event to make a statement about violence against police.
“Our members are enraged at his lack of support of law enforcement,” Flynn said of Obama. “It’s clear that he has an agenda, and unfortunately the police are not part of his agenda.”
In the last nine days, eight police officers have been killed in the U.S. Despite the clear escalation in violence, Obama has stayed basically silent about the killings.
“I mean, he had the opportunity to do things then and he didn’t, and all he’s done is escalated and allowed these people that are hellbent on causing problems to do so,” Flynn continued. “We can’t continue to have people who have no intention to do anything but to be disruptive. These aren’t good citizens. These are thugs who go out and try to cause problems.”
Flynn hopes that the boycott will force Obama to issue a statement defending police officers, something that the police officer hopes will put a stop to the violence.
“I think it would send a message to people in law enforcement that we have a commander in chief who actually is backing the people who are in the war on the street. And this is a war on the street,” Flynn concluded. “He’s got to come out and ask to be a unified group and to support law enforcement.”
