President Trump points to the crowd during his speech Friday on Long Island
In an appalling display, President Donald Trump gave a speech at a Long Island community college on Friday during which he encouraged the use of unauthorized and illegal police violence, asking police to be "rough" with criminal suspects, suggesting that police officers slam suspects' heads into their police vehicles when placing them under arrest.
While addressing uniformed police in Suffolk County about the activities of the MS-13 gang on Long Island, Trump told the officers, "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddywagon, you just see them thrown in, rough". "I said, 'Please don't be too nice'". "Don't hit their head, I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"
Trump said, miming the physical motion of an officer shielding a suspect's head to keep it from bumping against the squad vehicle.
Goff also said that he has spoken to police chiefs and officers who are "disgusted" by "the president's statements ― and the applause" it received. "Just like they don't want to have rich people at the head of treasury", Trump said. In short, he is encouraging police brutality.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has instructed the Justice Department's law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to prioritize the prosecution of MS-13 members, as directed by an executive order Trump signed in February.
"The President of the United States has no business endorsing or condoning cops being rough with arrestees and suggesting that we should slam their heads onto the auto while putting them in", the department said in a Facebook post.
City police officials could not be reached for comment, nor could Gene Ryan, president of the city police union. "As a police department we are committed to helping people, not harming them", Evans said. But here in Baltimore, a city still reckoning with terse relationships between police and the communities they're sworn to protect, this story was all too familiar.
"This led to protests, a riot and an unprecedented two-year spike in violence that now has the city on track for close to 400 homicides this year, more than NY, which is 14 times larger". In a statement Friday, the group did not specifically mention Trump by name but appeared to respond to his speech by stressing the importance of treating all people, including suspects, with respect.
Mr. Trump also vowed in his speech to support law enforcement officers by ensuring his administration made surplus military equipment available to police. "This is the bedrock principle behind the concepts of procedural justice and police legitimacy".
