Friday President Trump suggested that the police should use more force when they arrest a suspect.
Trump just told police officers that they can be more violent than they already are. And they cheered. pic.twitter.com/KjYI3pxcVG

Well, police departments around the country put out statements saying that is the most ridiculous thing and want nothing to do with that statement
The @POTUS made remarks today that endorsed and condoned police brutality.
GPD rejects these remarks and continues to serve with respect.

If an officer acts outside the law, it serves only to undermine the hard work and sacrifice they make to keep this city safe. https://t.co/LBqk8Xdwcz

I’m a cop.
I do not agree with or condone @POTUS remarks today on police brutality.
Those that applauded and cheered should be ashamed.
