As if committing $1 billion to the police on Day One weren’t enough, Hillary has now promised to bring the “full weight of the law” against anyone who kills police, as if they don’t bring the full weight every time.
“As president, I will bring the full weight of the law on anyone who killed a police officer and see to it that they are brought to justice,” she said. “I also believe that everyone is safer when the police respect the people and the people respect the police who serve them.”
Nobody is walking away from killing police. This is all about the Democrats’ endless respect-the-police narratives. After waves of military assaults against Standing Rock protestors, Hillary decided a gotta-hear-both-sides approach is the way to go. Obama even came in to sing backup.
Asked about “shocking footage” showing police firing rubber bullets at protesters, Obama said: “It’s a challenging situation. I think that my general rule when I talk to governors and state and local officials whenever they’re dealing with protests, including for example during the Black Lives Matters protests, is there’s an obligation for protesters to be peaceful and there’s an obligation for authorities to show restraint.”
He continued: “I want to make sure that as everybody is exercising their constitutional rights to be heard, that both sides are refraining from situations that might result in people being hurt.”
Always lecturing protestors to “be peaceful.” What are protestors going to do against tanks and SWAT and dogs and chemical warfare and whatever else? But the Democrats will always portray police/military terror as good people in tough situations doing the best they can to protect our freedom, etc etc. Protestors need to tuck in their shirts, stand up straight and carry themselves with grace and dignity at all times, though. And don’t forget to vote.
