Barack Obama’s legacy will be the start of a carefully orchestrated race war that led to the senseless murders of multiple innocent law enforcement officers, who risked their lives every day, in order to save others.
After five police officers were killed in Dallas, the head of a law enforcement advocacy group lashed out at President Barack Obama, accusing the president of carrying out a “war on cops.”
“I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,” William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox
“I think one of the big differences then was you had governors and mayors and the president — whether it was President Johnson or President Nixon, Republican or Democrat — condemning violence against the police and urging support for the police,” Johnson said. “Today that’s markedly absent. I think that’s a huge difference, and that’s directly led to the climate that allows these attacks to happen.” –Politico
“It’s a war on cops,” Johnson also said. “And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.”
President Trump has been tasked with the difficult task of cleaning up the anti-cop sentiment that Obama left behind. From his early days on the campaign trail, where Trump could be seen posing for photos with law enforcement officers assigned to his detail, to memorial services for fallen NYPD cops, there can be no question in any law enforcement officer’s mind, that President Trump is committed to restoring the honor and respect our law enforcement officers deserve.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump made an impromptu move to bring the kids and mother of fallen New York Police Department detective Miosotis Familia on stage while he was speaking at the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service.
After addressing the trend of ambush attacks on officers, Trump told attendees that among them was the family of Familia, who was shot and killed while sitting in her patrol car.
Breaking from his script, the president appeared to scan the crowd and said, “Where is that great family?”
Then, he invited them on stage in a clearly impromptu moment as he instructed officials to pave the way for the family.
“Come up here, please,” he asked. “Can you open those gates, please?”
Familia’s three kids’ journey to center stage was accompanied by continuous applause from the officers and members of Congress who were on stage, as well as, those who were in the audience.
After shaking their hands and offering hugs, Trump extended his hand to Familia’s mother, who is 90 years old.
As Trump put his arm around her, she leaned into the president, the 90-year-old dwarfed by his stature.
In another spontaneous gesture to honor Familia, Trump asked her partner, officer Marr, to come to the microphone and share how remarkable the fallen officer was.
“This is a woman who got injured a while ago and volunteered to come back to patrol to one of the roughest places in New York City,” he explained.
Marr added that she’d only been back on patrol for two weeks when she was murdered.
“She may have been lost that night, but she saved a lot of lives in turn because of her memory and everything that transpired after the fact,” he said. “She was an incredible person.”
After he finished speaking, he made way for Trump at the microphone and went to embrace Familia’s oldest daughter, who appeared to be crying. – IJR
