Our police officers wake up everyday and put their lives on the line for all of America. It will be nice to know they have some help and support so they can do what is necessary to protect our citizens.
Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions supported cops, and that’s something Obama never did. This is not what the Black Lives Matter was expecting.
Jonathan Thompson, Executive Director and CEO of the National Sheriffs’ Association, believes there is one particular reason for such an assault on law enforcement.
Here’s what he said:
“Over the past few years’ law enforcement has been missing a key component to succeed in their jobs — federal government support.”
“While law enforcement is asked to do more and more with the ever-changing world of terrorism and public safety, the current administration has rolled-back much of the progress achieved through decades of effective policing through qualitative and quantitative resourcing. In return the nation’s crime rates have risen faster than at any time in our modern history.”
“While the mood toward law enforcement at the federal level has degraded we now see how out of touch this administration has been with the public. The dialogue between the administration and those charged with protecting us has grown outright hostile, making their jobs even more difficult and dangerous.”
“Law enforcement is gratified by the support and with a new executive branch administration comes new promise. Law enforcement knows that we have a federal partner with the nomination of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States.”
“The nation’s sheriffs and deputies know Sen. Sessions will support them because throughout his career he has been a crime fighter who seeks justice fairly.”
“Sessions supports solutions important to sheriffs and the law enforcement community. He understands the importance of the 1033 Program that provides excess, protective resources and equipment law enforcement needs to carry out their duty.”
Do you think things will change for our officers??
