This week in America has marked some disturbing new chapters in the left’s crusade against the law enforcement community.

At first, the anti-police sentiment came from rioters and demonstrators who are looting and burning U.S. cities. These people chant for the deaths of officers, scribble anti-cop graffiti on monuments, and otherwise express their disdain for the police force.

 

It goes without saying that lawless behavior and anti-police sentiment has attracted criticism, namely from conservatives. Rather than reconsider what they’re doing, though, Democrats have chosen to simply dig their heels in.

Now, the rioters and looters aren’t the only ones espousing antagonistic rhetoric against the law enforcement community.

Sources confirm that earlier this week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti engendered criticism from the city’s police department after branding law enforcement officers as “killers.”

Mayor Garcetti vs. the Los Angeles Police Department

Yesterday, Jamie McBride, director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, slammed Garcetti for his statements about police officers. Sadly, the Los Angeles mayor decided to falsely and flagrantly deem the law enforcement community as “killers” when speaking with faith leaders this week.

The LAPD didn’t hesitate to push back against this and rightfully so. McBride later professed that Mayor Garcetti “smeared” not only Los Angeles police officers, but also other officers throughout the country. She also stated that the mayor is “unstable” before inferring that he ought to be removed from office.

Garcetti’s remarks about police being “killers” arrives after his decision to cut funding from the Los Angeles Police Department. This decision came after Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside of the Los Angeles mayor’s home and chanted “defund the police.”
