Biden Attacks Police – Again

police

It’s hard to believe Biden’s backflips on police. In 2020, Biden allowed “defund police” to grow, calling America’s law enforcement “systemically” racist. In 2021, he backed off. Now, despite record police murders, Biden plans an Executive Order (EO) crippling police self-defense, changing “use of force.”

Against the advice of every major police union, Supreme Court precedent, State and Federal statute, Biden hopes to impose on police a new standard for self-defense – in effect, raising personal risk, liability, and danger to all law enforcement officers.

The audacity of Biden’s move is breathtaking, in view of the triple threat presented to public safety by Biden’s current policies – record murders of police (including in 2022), spiking homicides, and elevated street crime. It suggests the Biden White House is stuck in ideological quicksand – utterly beholden to the far left.

On top of homicides jumping 29 percent in 2020 and high crime across major cities, murders of police officers rose 59 percent in 2021, and continue to rise.

Moreover, “a significant portion of those fatalities were ambushes, which were up 91 percent by mid-2021,” and “through April 26 of this year, gun murders of cops are up another 13 percent over … 2021,” while “shootings of officers, lethal and nonlethal, were up 43 percent ….

A leaked version of the EO reasserts “systemic” racism across law enforcement, while also putting men in women’s prisons (for transgender equity). It then pushes the new “use of force” standard, intended to hobble police response.

Even the New York Times writes: “Under current law, officers may shoot if they fear for their lives or those of people around them,” while Biden’s EO allows deadly force only “as a last resort when there is no reasonable alternative, in other words only when necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily injury or death.” Officers will be sued to prove “no alternative” and “imminent and serious” injury or death.

The effect of this new standard, forcing officers to risk death or wounding by withholding “use of force” when traditionally allowed, produces a cascade of effects endangering police and the public.

First, officers – already being shot in record numbers – will face greater danger. They will be forced to withhold self-defense and defense of others when confronting deadly force, or risk elevated civil and criminal liability. That is an unconscionable choice, particularly for peace officers.

Second, the likelihood grows that any officer, faced with such a lose-lose proposition, will delay, avert, and avoid engagements, raising civilian risk. This is especially troubling at a time when fear, crime, and civilian homicides are spiking.

Third, placing police at elevated risk for liability, death, and wounding adds to the pressure Democrats have already put on police morale, retention, and recruiting.

Fourth, the White House expectation is that demanding this new standard for federal law enforcement will push State and local police to accept it, since federal grants can be made conditional on acceptance of the federal standards, coercion.

Finally, this idea – an EO shaped by Biden, Harris, and White House advisors like Susan Rice to collar law enforcement in the name of “reform” – will drive the wedge deeper between Democrats and law enforcement, if not also the public.

Net-net, keeping up with anti-police sentiment in this While House – and among top Democrats – is hard.  Just when you think they may have learned “defunding” and blanket accusations are a bad idea, they trot out more bad ideas.

Simply put, Democrats are stuck in ideological quicksand, beholden to the far left, even as most of America worries about public safety, and dials 911. As a result, the political party dialing 911 after November, may be the Democrats.

City, county, state police are not (line level) regulated by the feds. Go to hell biden! I spent over 40 years in the business and am retired now. I doubt very much if any local, county, state or federal cop worth their salt will abide by biden’s idiotic, ignorant, self serving “rules” that he’s going to try to establish for us. What a piece of fecal matter. He steals an election and expects loyalty and blind faith regarding his failed policies and executive orders?!

He’s truly a friggin’ fool!!!! and a tool for the global elite, the left. I always knew it but, now there’s absolutely no question about biden’s inept, self-serving, idiotic, seemingly never ending greed! I still don’t understand why ol’ slo’ joe and his spawn hunter think they’re above the law… oh, wait. I guess they are. They scored hundreds of thousands of bucks via Ukraine following ol’ slo’ joe’s coercion of the Ukrainian guv’ment. Nah, biden’s not a friend of police. His spawn, crackhead Hunter’s allegedly made millions off of him and his father’s failed “leadership”. He’s all about making big bucks coercing other politicos, etc. NOT governing our nation appropriately!

Nah, ol’ slow Joe’s not our friend. IMHO

Our local police are not controlled by the fed and should not be coerced or forced into taking federal funds in order to be controlled by federal mandates. Keep our local police local. Support your local law enforcement.

Gee, would Joe not want use-of-force if someone was trying to take him out? Funny how the narrative changes with the circumstance. But, consider the source.

Of course ol’ slo’ joe doesn’t like the police. His son is one of their favorite past times… Hunter and his crack pipe is all ol’ slo’ joe can think about, evidently. I wouldn’t doubt if ol’ slo’ joe and his spawn hunter are on first person speaking terms with the local gendarmes these days being as Hunter’s still got his crack habit… or so it seems. IMHO

Anyway, the good side is that ol’ slo’ joe’s going to be gone after the next election… I hope.

Kiss my rosey red arse biden. This comment’s being brought to you by a 40+ yrs. in service, now retired cop. You’re a coward and a bithering shill of a loser! You’re a failure as POTUS and you’re a vile human being. Drop by some time and we can chat… I’ll buy you a friggin’ beer. (I don’t drink alcoholic beverages so you’re going to have to drink alone). I’d love to chat with you about your inept presidency.

Walt, thank you for your service in the “business” too. 20 yrs. is fantastic. Keep it up, we need dedicated folks like you. I hope you’re finding “the job” as interesting, satisfying, rewarding and humbling as I did! Most of my compadre’s I served with in my law enforcement career lasted as long or longer than I did in the job. Life’s too short to worry about the small stuff.

Police have the right of Self-Defense , do matter what it takes. Any person that attacks police is in the wrong & should be arrested. If they tell you not to run & kneel on ground, then you should comply & go peacefully with officers. You can defend your case later, but if you are 500-pounds & hit a 150-lb cop — then what do you expect to happen next. You need to watch more crime dramas on TV

Yeah, we already got a great example of how ol’ slow joe’s going to “help” us, the mighty fine citizens of this great country. That horrible failure on the tarmac in Afghanistan is one glaring example of ol’ slo’ joe’s inept “leadership” or shall I say, “lack thereof”. Nah, ol’ slo’ joe’s not in that job for us, he’s all about himself and his crack head son, hunter. But then, what father wouldn’t protect his son from the police and us, the inquiring public?

Nah, joe’s got to go. IMHO. Vote “NO” for Joe and move on…

Yes, police are always the bad guy until they need one. Good luck with that. I totally support the police and have several friends that are cops but are retired now. They can’t believe what is going on. I can’t either. It’s so scary. RED=REMOVE EVERY DEMOCRAT

The farther left the dimwits go, the more absurd the EO’s, the more people are driven from the dimwit vote. Amazing to me is they cannot see this. The more they appeal to the radical left the more their numbers of potential voters declines. Even the most progressive of the left don’t want to live like the joeblow regime is suggesting.

The only thing I can attribute to what accounts for the left’s “confidence” is the real possibility that the demoncrats already have the fix in for 2024. Ol’ slo’ joe’s going to be their most likely candidate unless they pull someone else out from behind the curtain. I don’t see the left abandoning their puppet joe and his sidekick Camel-ahhh…

Sadly, the far-left wing of the Democratic Party has a belief that the police are somehow responsible for the wave of theft and violence that has taken over our country. The amount of power they are being afforded by the current administration is ridiculous! It is time for the middle of the political spectrum to take power back. Our current president has to be removed from office for his unwillingness to enforce the laws of our great country and enforce the borders of our country. Mr. Obama chose Mr. Biden as his vice-president because he knew that the ineptitude of Mr. Biden would protect him. Mr. Biden subsequently went very low to find a vice-president to protect him; in my opinion, Ms. Harris must also be replaced to protect our country.

I think that the police leave the force and get a new job. Why should they have to put up with being so restricted and risk there life? Let Biden go take care of law enforcement.

They are ALL corrupt, immoral, liars who Our finest deserve to make them examples of how law enforcement works!

Here we go again. When are we, as American citizens, going to take a stand against this hierarchy? They said, take God out of our schools, our businesses and military. Well. They got what they wanted, and look where we are. Put Him back in and see how our country turns around again.

It’s not the Democrats or Republicans we are up against. It is Satan and all his lies. People decided to believe him. So now the people are suffering. Look at history where whole communities were involved in God’s Word and helped each other. Therein was where the support was strong. We have become weak. Many don’t even stand on the principles of God’s Word. And they wonder why our country is going to hell in a handbasket.

We believers are the ones, who need to take a stand.

Anyone who thinks what we’re seeing is the result of idiot democrats who can’t see cause/effect needs to think again. What we are seeing is a long planned, desired outcome by the democrats. And what is their goal you might ask? Its one step in their planned take over and permanent power grab of this country. Put it all together…
Releasing criminals with no bail. Refusing to prosecute criminals. Ignoring thefts up to $1,000. Propagating false information to make police targets. And more. It’s all coming from the Dems whose objective it to 1) turn cities into crime zones, 2) get police to quit or severely reduce their numbers, and 3) neuter the effectiveness of local law enforcement. But Why?
So crime infested cities will turn to the feds to be rescued. So there will be a justification to confiscate ALL legal weapons. So cities will ASK for a federal police force to be created and sent in.
Has anyone noticed Pelosi will be opening or has opened Capital Police offices outside of DC? You know, those police whose only task is to safeguard the capital? But for some reason, they need offices in places like San Francisco and Florida.
Like I said, it’s just one part of the puzzle.
Control your income (Income Redistribution, Equity). Control your access to healthcare (Obamacare was only the first step). Remove your access to weapons (they keep trying). Control what you’re allowed to say/think (Ministry of Truth, big tech censorship). Control your education (indoctrination). And there’s lots more.
These are all pieces aimed at one end objective. A totalitarian government with the Dems in charge.

And if you think I’m imagining this…who remembers “Life of Julia”, which was a fictional storybook created by the Obama admin showing their vision for how a girl would be totally reliant on the government across EVERY phase of her life? cnn.com/2012/05/09/opinion/bennett-obama-campaign/index.html This was their vision in 2012. It’s still their vision today.

Your observations are a frightening (but true) read of what the extreme left
want our country to become. I fear for a depleted police force that ultimately
will not have enough troops to answer emergency calls. My sister moved to Mexico
to save money but of course safety is always questionable. The police just don’t answer
emergency calls and this is in San Miguel Allende with lots of expats.
So if we don’t get to the polls and change this thinking we are supporting these sick
policies by the radical left.
So instead of saying one vote won’t make a difference do your duty unless you support
these asinine extremists.
