In 2015 alone, at least 82 police officers have died in the line of duty. The brave men and women who wear blue risk their lives every day to keep us and our families safe. They deserve our support and gratitude; we can never repay them for their sacrifice.
They police are even supported in liberal New England. That’s why when President Barack Obama came to speak on Labor Day, the local police association BOYCOTTED the speech! That’s because Obama, who has had a long career as a cop-bashing community organizer, hates our police officers and fans the flames of racial hatred against them. Obama supports the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which encourages thugs to commit violence against police officers.
The New England Police Benevolent Association is furious with Obama’s treatment of police after the death of Michael Brown in Missouri and other recent stories which have earned national headlines. And they took action!
Jerry Flynn, a Lowell cop on leave while serving as executive director of the New England Police Benevolent Association, said his organization’s executive board has chosen to boycott President Obama’s Labor Day breakfast address in Boston today to make a statement about violence against police:
“Our members are enraged at his lack of support of law enforcement. It’s clear that he has an agenda, and unfortunately the police are not part of his agenda.
Let’s face it, (there have been) eight people killed in a nine-day period, eight police officers, and his silence up until recently has been deafening. And the real sad part of this — and when I went to the White House in the first term with (Vice President) Joe Biden — he said to me that he would be the voice of law enforcement. Well, as much as I love and adore Joe, his voice has been silent as well. So it’s not an Obama problem, it’s an administration problem.
This is a horror show, this is an epidemic of lawless people trying to kill police officers for no apparent reasons. Case in point is the lieutenant who was pumping gas in Houston. Over 7,000 people were at that church, and where was he (Obama)? Why wasn’t he there instead of a unity breakfast?”
