The Cambridge Police Patrol Officer’s Association president also strongly criticized the president’s remarks
“That was totally inappropriate. I am disgraced that he is our commander-in-chief,” Stephen Killion said. “He smeared the good reputation of the hard-working men and women of the Cambridge Police Department. It was wrong to do. It was disgraceful,” the web site quoted him as saying.
Obama’s comments could diminish work done by law enforcement to address racial issues, said James Preston, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Florida State Lodge.
“By reducing all contact between law enforcement and the public to the color of their skin or ethnicity is, in fact, counterproductive to improving relationships,” Preston said. “To make such an off-handed comment about a subject without benefit of the facts, in such a public forum, hurts police/community relations and is a setback to all of the years of progress.”
Obama made this a racist issue with his statement and in turn will lose alot of votes from policemen across America along with the millions losing their jobs that vote lost is starting to add up! Obama shows his radical side once again!
