Houston Police Union Leader's Comments Draw Ire

Connor Veenstra Jan 30, 2019

At 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan 30, a search warrant for a house turned into a gun battle between two suspects and the narcotics officers sent to investigate their house. The engagement ended with four officers shot and both suspects dead.

During a press conference early Monday evening addressing the shooting, Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers' Union, vented frustration in a moment of informality.   "We are sick and tired of having targets on our back," he said. "We are sick and tired of having dirtbags trying to take our lives when all we're trying to do is protect this community and protect our families."

It was a more inflammatory comment, however, that has earned him ire and unfriendly attention.
"If you're the ones out there spreading the rhetoric that police officers are the enemy," he said, "well just know we've all got your number now. We're going to be keeping track on all of y'all, and we're going to make sure to hold you accountable every time you stir the pot on our police officers.".......To Read More....

My Take - The article goes on to quote a Black Lives Matter loser who complains the police are using this incident to "claim the police are trying to get aggressive and using this as an excuse to clamp down on black and brown communities, where there's a problem with policing in the first place." 

Did I say incident?  There were four cops shot and two dead perps isn't just an incident, it's a condemnation of this guy's community.  Why do the police have a problem in those communites? Because that's where most of the crime is being committed, and it's my guess he's one of those dirtbags who are stirring up the black community the police are watching.  And they need to.

Now we need to see police chiefs from all over the country to stand up, defend and support this brave officer.
