This has alot to do with the recent ambush of 2 police officers in Los Angeles and the aftermath where protesters on the left showed up at the hospital to cheer and hope the officers die. I’m not going to link because everyone should know about this. There was also a similar police officer shot and killed in North Carolina. In 2019, 48 police were killed in the line of duty.
Now Trump slammed it, of course, and Biden also condemned it. However many people feel what lead to this was the democrats embrace of anti police rhetoric. Notice all the police chiefs in major cities being forced out by democrats, democrats telling police they cant use tear gas on rioters, democrats refusing to prosecute rioters even after being arrested by police, and democrats called for defunding police. Democrats allowing CHAZ.
You have to admit democrats really want to see themselves as being on the side of BLM and demonstrators for racial justice and portraying Trump as being a racist and on the side of fascism.
Should democrats switch and come down on the side of police and the “defund police” movement? Should democrats stop telling police what methods they can and cannot do? Should democrats take the lead in seeing rioters punished instead of being let go? Should they stand behind their police chiefs?
What do you all think?
