Biden to endorse former President Trump now say they are “disgusted” with what they see as a lack of support from the White House.
'Disgusted': Biden's support from police has disintegrated in just under nine months.
Wilson, chairman of the National Association of Black Law Enforcement Executives, personally endorsed Mr.
Wilson acknowledged that the president’s lack of public praise for law enforcement is contributing to low morale at a time when police forces are seeing record resignations and retirements.
A lot of cops — because there is such a focus reform — think the administration point blank doesn’t care about them,” he said.
Biden will come face to face with the law enforcement community Saturday when he delivers remarks at the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service outside the U.S.
They say the administration’s failure to develop a comprehensive strategy to combat the nation’s rising crime rate; Justice Department probes into local police departments and support of police reform measures have further eroded morale.
Biden was the driving force behind a 1994 crime bill that included grant money to communities to hire 100,000 more officers.
Biden’s tepid denunciation of rioters and embrace of calls for a major overhaul of policing laws and more oversight of police.Republicans argue that the surge in violence in America is fueled by Democrats’ push to defund the police, expose police officers to the threat of lawsuits for their actions on the job and make it easier for accused criminals to get of jail on bail.In June, he vowed to wage a war on violent crime, announcing tougher penalties for gun violations and urging cities to use federal COVID relief funds to hire more police officers.
Biden also scuttled his plan to create a national police oversight commission, breaking a campaign promise to establish one within his first 100 days in office.
Wilson, one of the few officers who support the proposal, said he’s disappointed the president hasn’t pushed harder for the legislation“They had a halfway decent shot at police reform but it didn’t pass muster,” he said
