When I think about all of the things that police officers have gone through these past few months it really makes me sick.
I remember when my son was twelve years old and my wife and I were on a trip to visit family in a pretty large city. We had to take him to the emergency room and when we got out of the hospital at like nine at night after being there all day, we got confused and took a wrong turn that left us in a really bad part of town.
There was a cop at a McDonald’s that we flagged down, explained where we were trying to get to and he ended up giving us an escort to the exit to the interstate. It makes me feel so awful right now that someone would try to cause someone like that harm.
If you want a glimpse into the future of what a Democrat controlled America would look like, one need to look no further than the upstate New York City of Rochester. We just received news that the police chief, as well as the entire department command staff ,suddenly quit, announcing that they are retiring from their jobs of enforcing the law in the city.
The devastating news for the good people of the city came a few days after riots and violence began in the area. The excuse for the mob violence was that it occurred in response to bodycam footage, from an incident in March, which showed an incident involving Rochester police and a 41-year-old black man.
ABC News reported:
After days of protests against the Rochester Police Department in light of the death of Daniel Prude, its top officer and command staff announced Tuesday they are retiring from the force.
Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary said in a statement that he was honored to serve the city in upstate New York for 20 years and commended his staff. However, he said the protests and criticism of his handling of the investigation into the March 23 incident “are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity.”
“As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character,” he said in a statement. “The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and know what I stand for.”
Mayor Lovely Warren informed the Rochester City Council that in addition to Singletary, the entire command staff announced its retirement today. She noted that none of the police brass were asked to resign.
Deputy Chief Joseph Morabito was also among those retiring. He had served on the Rochester Police Department for 34 years.
“It has also been my honor to serve this community through these many years; a community I was born and raised in, and deeply love,” he wrote in a statement.
Black Lives Matter ‘protesters,’ many of which were exceedingly violent, took over the streets of Rochester, New York Friday night. The mob destroyed restaurants, sending customers running for cover, before they took their terrorist antics to residential neighborhoods.
