Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community
White House Issue Statement

One of the fundamental rights of every American is to live in a safe community. A Trump Administration will empower our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and keep our streets free of crime and violence. The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration. President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the public. The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it.

The Trump Administration is committed to reducing violent crime. In 2015, homicides increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years. In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. There were thousands of shootings in Chicago last year alone.

Our country needs more law enforcement, more community engagement, and more effective policing.

Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disruptor. Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who want their kids to be able to walk the streets safely. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school.

Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens’ ability to protect themselves. We will uphold Americans’ Second Amendment rights at every level of our judicial system.

It is the first duty of government to keep the innocent safe, and President Donald Trump will fight for the safety of every American, and especially those Americans who have not known safe neighborhoods for a very long time.

As of Inauguration Day, this promise is already in motion.

Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.

My concern about those arrested on January 20th is how many are a flight risk?

The other concern is how forcefully these enforcement units will be and will our rights as citizens be negated in some way by a more or less police state before we again have safe streets?

Otherwise, I applaud the purpose of these statements.

  1. They had better arrest the son of a bitch sponsoring it all.
    Exhibit “A” is the video of someone asking for a show of hands if Soros was paying them. All 15 in the small group of protestors arms went up.

  2. Hardnox says:

    The bottom line is “are we a nation of laws or aren’t we?” That’s it in the nutshell. The left has enjoyed doing whatever violence they wanted for 8 solid years. That shit ends.

  3. vonMesser says:

    Let them be a “flight risk”. Anyone who does not show up becomes a fugitive from justice (felony) and they go on the no-fly list. Get pulled over by a cop for speeding and get hauled off to the federal pokey……

  4. Popular Front says:

    What ever happened to policemen’s nightsticks? When they are in this sort of situation it should be – draw the truncheon and a-whumpa whumpa whumpa of all those breaking windows and skreeching and disobeying the civil code. Club them.

    • Uriel says:

      You know. I don’t have an answer. It seems they would use them in close contact for protection. At least if used they generally don’t kill people like a gun does.

  5. Felinity says:

    Speaking of potential flight risks — this clip shows a verbose *kinetic* who was nipped in the bud before take-off, thanks be! The woman is truly certifiable. But prayers are in order for her Silent-Sam husband; she did this in the wake (as it were) of his mother’s FUNERAL! Couth City, eh?

    Applause for the flight attendants; I’d like Trump to hire them!

    • Uriel says:

      I saw that,it reminded of a friend. Her shock at being told to get off was hilarious but sad. The targeting of Trump supporters has got to stop. People have every right to go about their day without being harassed or in some cases seriously harmed because they exercised their voting right. People are even being fired for their choices. This is way over the top ridiculous. What next? Move on to other things, geez. You don’t like what you see in government take a proactive part in your own right to vote, get involved in the process but do it the legal and right way. They don’t have a functioning political party. They need to work that through first. This is past childish and fast moving to legal levels of insanity.

  6. Dynalady says:

    Hopefully these felony rioting statutes provide for mandatory restitution, too. Joe Taxpayer ought not to have to foot the bill for all the extra police +overtime, + the workers comp for injuries, damage to streets & other public property, torched cars, etc. These leftist Hillary supporters enjoy ‘pay for play’ so much, let them have their turn at paying.
    Throw the book at the first dozen at least & this garbage will stop quickly.

    • Uriel says:

      I agree. BUT those identifying as leaders and those funding should pay the greater amount

      • Dynalady says:

        Yes, I agree–& a dozen well chosen snowflakes looking at potentially 10 yrs, big fines, & $$1000’s in restitution might just find themselves a ‘safe space’ by giving up some names & evidence of those higher up the food chain.

  7. I want to coin a new word.
    JAPOD
    Remember the movie “Blue thunder” starring Roy Scheider and a fancy police helicopter?
    Roy gave a new guy a hat with JAFO on it. For Just Another F****** Observer.

    JAPOD=Just Another Pissed Off Democrat.
    Get ready, there are a LOT of them. Don’t you love it?

    The snowflake woman that got thrown off the plane should be thankful.
    If I was the captain I would have done it from 10,000″ up.
