The radical left no longer wants police officers to be able to protect themselves.
They’re defending protesters no matter what the violence.
Rashida Tlaib’s violent outburst at the police was destroyed with just five words.
In Oakland, California a black federal law enforcement officer was providing security at a federal courthouse when he was killed in a drive-by shooting on May 29th.
While the left can say that protesters are being mostly peaceful, they have also been violent.
The police are having to deal with crowds of people who are armed and dangerous, knowing that officials will blame them if anything goes wrong.
Rashida Tlaib posted a video showing a police car surrounded by a mob of angry protesters hitting the vehicle and blocking its way.
The police car goes slowly through the crowd hitting 3-5 people who refused to get out of the way.
Tlaib responded to this by saying “This is outrageous. Our city fought hard to have an elected commission to oversee abuse and misconduct by police. Detroit Board of Police Commissioners: I hope you understand the gravity of this, especially if not fully investigated, documented and addressed.”
Detroit currently has the second highest violent crime rate in the country so its police chief is familiar with crime and he refuted Tlaib’s claim saying “we’re talking about violent protesters.”
Detroit Police Chief James Craig told Fox News host Shannon Bream just how outlandish he thinks Tlaib’s accusations against his officer are.
Craig stated, “What was outrageous, Shannon, was the fact that a peaceful protest — and let me just say, for the past four weeks, we’ve had protests every day. They’ve all been peaceful — there’s something very different about this event. Again, a vast majority, about 300 or so, most of them were peaceful but there were a few agitators embedded. And that’s when things went bad. But to suggest that this protest was peaceful all night certainly is totally inaccurate.”
The police weren’t trying to stop a peaceful protest, they were trying to get out of a dangerous situation.
“And I know that the congresswoman is making claims that they were peacefully marching when we intersected and intentionally hit peaceful protesters. Not the case. They surround the vehicle, they began to pelt the vehicle — not just one of our police cruisers but two of them – and in one instance the rear window of one of our SUVs was broken out. And, the information I got from the officer in that vehicle was that he thought he was being shot at,” Craig said.
Americans should stand against police abuses but this is not one of those cases.
Not allowing the police to do their jobs leads to tragic deaths.
Tlaib needs to learn that the police are not always her enemy.
