Our brave men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.
It’s a job they are rarely thanked for, but they continue to face the evils of this world every single day. And they don’t get half the respect they deserve, either.
They don’t do it for the applause or the paycheck, but because they believe in protecting our communities, even if it means putting their lives at risk.
But anti-police sentiment has been growing in America, due in large part to Obama and his constant refusal to crack down on those wishing to harm the police.
After the horrific Dallas shooting that left 5 officers dead in 2016, Obama should have condemned the rising tide of violence against the police. Instead, the former president used the shooting as an opportunity to rant about gun control.
President Trump, on the other hand, recently spoke at the 37th Annual National Peace Officer’s Memorial Service to honor fallen police officers, and showed just how far his administration is willing to go to back the Blue.
From Western Journal:
“Trump said his administration had vowed to protect and defend police officers, and noted that as of 2016, an officer was assaulted nearly every 10 minutes somewhere in America — a travesty he refused to let continue.
‘We must end the attacks on our police, and we must end them right now,’ Trump said.
‘We believe criminals who kill our police should get the death penalty. Bring it forth.’“
This comment by Trump was met with thunderous applause by those attending the emotional ceremony, and rightfully so.
The president then went on to introduce the families of officers slain in the line of duty, including the family of NYPD officer Miosotis Familia.
Familia was shot in the head while sitting in her parked police car in the Bronx last year; her killer was eventually caught and fatally shot by police. Trump promised to put a stop to these types of ambushes against police officers.
Then he went on to comfort Familia’s three children by saying their mother was “looking down, and she’s so proud of you. She’s so proud of you. And you are great. Your mom’s legacy will never, ever die.”
Trump also comforted Familia’s 90-year-old mother, Adrianna Valoy. Valoy couldn’t hold back how grateful she was to Trump for honoring her daughter, and tenderly held onto the President for the majority of their time together on the stage.
The law and order candidate is now the law and order president, and the men and women who protect our communities can breathe easy knowing that their commander-in-chief is in their corner!
