The following article, Joe Biden Accuses Police of Creating ‘Distrust’ in America, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Joe Biden attacked American police officers last Friday for fueling “distrust” in his so-called proclamation for “Peace Officers Memorial Day.”
Biden’s proclamation was issued for the May 15 Peace Officers Memorial Day, which honors fallen law enforcement officers. Biden also honored Police Week to remember the sacrifices by law enforcement officers and their families across the country.
Biden’s Saturday statement expressed “gratitude for the selfless public servants who wear the badge,” but also slammed the “distrust” that police had created.
The statement read:
This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement. These deaths have resulted in a profound fear, trauma, pain, and exhaustion for many Black and brown Americans, and the resulting breakdown in trust between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect and serve ultimately makes officers’ jobs harder and more dangerous as well.
In order to rebuild that trust, our State, local, and Federal Government and law enforcement agencies must protect constitutional rights, ensure accountability for misconduct, and embrace policing that reflects community values and ensures community safety. These approaches benefit those who wear the badge and those who count on their protection.
Biden is clearly pushing the lies of Black Lives Matter over the interests of American communities, our safety, and the needs of police officers.
It is, of course, outrageous that Biden would issue a proclamation that attacks police on a day meant them.
