Presidential Brutality

 

I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…

During his campaign for the Presidency, Donald Trump repeatedly urged supporters to rough up the protestors who dogged his trail.

So I suppose it’s no surprise that, speaking yesterday to police in Long Island, he urged them to random acts of brutality against the suspects they encounter. No surprise, but not a thing you like to hear from a President of the United States. Not some of us, anyway.

The officers arrayed behind him laughed and smiled, perhaps in embarrassment, but it made for a ghoulish image. Have the police really been just waiting for a leader of the free world who happens also to be a cheap thug?

Don’t be too nice to your suspects, Trump said. Let ‘em bang their heads when you throw them in the back seat of a police car. Pay no attention to the laws, which are stacked against you.

Better advice? Pay no attention to this President.

    Let’s see is it “innocent until proven guilty” or the other way around?
