Police Officers Threaten to Turn Their Backs on Obama at the D.C. Memorial Service

Obama is expected to speak at the National Peace Officers Memorial Service in Washington, D.C. this week, despite his many anti-police statements over the past year. And because of those statements, law enforcement officers are reportedly threatening to turn their backs on him at the service.

Law enforcement officers at Washington, D.C.’s annual Police Week tell The Daily Caller that the anti-police climate is taking its toll on the men and women in uniform and that morale is low in departments across the country.

One source told TheDC Monday night that officers have stepped back from engaging in proactive policing, because they often see the same violent criminals they arrest immediately released on to the streets.

President of the Fraternal Order of Police Chuck Canterbury told TheDC that he believes that a shortage of cops is the reason. “For the last six or eight years, proactive law enforcement has come to a stop because of shortage of personnel.”

Additionally, cops say that the fear of legal and political backlash, similar to what was seen in Ferguson, New York City and Baltimore, is hurting morale. One source at Police Week who also does part-time security work for private companies was astounded at how young some of the violent individuals were during the Baltimore riots.

… A law enforcement source told TheDC that some attendees are threatening to turn their backs on President Barack Obama at the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol, where Obama is scheduled to deliver remarks. Obama made comments in the past that many in the police community found offensive.

Obama has shown that every time, if it comes down to siding with a violent thug or siding with a police officer tasked with protecting the law, he’s going to side with the thug — and stir up some racial division while he’s at it. No wonder officers want to turn their backs on him.
