Trump Encourages Cops To Rough Up Suspects -They applauded

Donald Trump told police at a gathering in Selden, New York on July 28, 2017 that they shouldn't be too careful when putting suspects into paddy wagons. The police cheered. Even the anti-Irish slur of "paddy wagons" caused no kick back in the police crowd.

What was already a shocking moment - the man in the White House urging violence on its citizens and inciting police to violence - was magnified by the police reaction.

Mother Jones reported:

"Turns out the audience was comprised of officers in a police department that has been scrutinized for racial profiling, and whose former chief was recently sentenced to prison for beating a man.

The Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) has been under federal oversight by the US Department of Justice since 2013, following a two-year investigation into allegations of discrimination against Latinos and immigrants. Nearly 20 percent of the county's 1.5 million residents are Latino."

Trump's behavior was part of a growing pattern from the White House: encouragement of violence from police and ICE justified by imaginary detailed claims of crimes by immigrants and racial minorities.

Trump 's speeches in Ohio [July 23, 2017] included moments when he called immigrants "animals" and offered a bizarre fantasy of supposed crime by immigrants.

Trump said these words in Youngstown, when he paused from talking about how he should be on Mt.Rushmore:

We are liberating — people are screaming from their windows, thank you, thank you to the border patrol and to General Kelly's great people that come in and grab the thugs and throw them the hell out. We are liberating our towns and we are liberating our cities. Can you believe we have to do that? [Chants of "build that wall wall" from crowd]

Earlier in year and immigration and customs enforcement conducted the largest single raid of transnational gangs in the history of our country. We are dismantling and destroying the bloodthirsty criminal gangs, and well, I will just tell you in, we're not doing it in a politicly correct fashion. We're doing it rough. Our guys are rougher than their guys.

I asked one of our great generals, "how tough are our people? How tough are they?" He said, "sir, you don't want to know about it." Then I saw one guy come out, a customs officer who is a monster. I said, "so general, you think i could take that guy in a fight?" He said, "Mr. President, sir i don't even want to think about it." I said "you're right, actually."

We have tough people. Our people are tougher than their people. Our people are tougher and stronger and meaner and smarter than the gangs.

One by one we are finding the illegal gang members, drug dealers, thieves, robbers, criminals and killers. And we are sending them the hell back home where they came from. And once they are gone, we will never let them back in.

Believe me. The predators and criminal aliens who poison our communities with drugs and prey on innocent young people, these beautiful, beautiful,innocent young people will, will find no safe haven anywhere in our country. And you've seen the stories about some of these animals. They don't want to use guns, because it's too fast and it's not painful enough.

So they'll take a young, beautiful girl, 16, 15, and others and they slice them and dice them with a knife because they want them to go through excruciating pain before they die. And these are the animals that we've been protecting for so long.

Well, they're not being protected any longer,folks. And that is why my administration is launching a nationwide crackdown on sanctuary cities. American cities should be sanctuaries for law-abiding Americans, for people that look up to the law, for people that respect the law, not for criminals and gang members that we want the hell out of our country. [Cheers from crowd]

Sanctuary cities legislation has passed the house,along with Kate's Law, named for Kate Steinle, who was brutally killed by a five-time deported illegal immigrant. We are asking the Senate to vote on sanctuary cities and Kate's Law legislation. We've got to get it passed."

On Long Island, he described our cities as "bloodstained killing fields. "

This man must be denounced by all decent people- police, press and media, elected officials.

He must be removed from office.

KIng (Phone: 516-541-4225) -and Lee Zeldin (Phone: 631- 289-1097). Call them. Tell them we reject an America defined by police violence and attacks on immigrants.

Left to right. Zeldin, King, Donovan.
