Bill Barr: Keep Protesting Cops And They’ll Turn On You

The Washington Post reports:

Speaking to a roomful of police officers and prosecutors on Tuesday, Attorney General William P. Barr drew a parallel between protests against soldiers during the Vietnam War and demonstrations against law enforcement today. But this time, he suggested, those who don’t show “respect” to authority could lose access to police services.

“Today, the American people have to focus on something else, which is the sacrifice and the service that is given by our law enforcement officers. And they have to start showing, more than they do, the respect and support that law enforcement deserves,” Barr said in pointed remarks delivered at a Justice Department ceremony to honor police officers.

Barr added that “if communities don’t give that support and respect, they might find themselves without the police protection they need.”

  1. That sounds like an attempt to recruit the loyalty of the cops if it ever came to that.

    • Hello David. It is a fascist authoritarian regime who doesn’t value its people and refuses to honor peoples civil rights. They want order kept by goons. You will simply obey no matter what and the authorities can do with you what the will. Scary. Hugs

  2. I respect law enforcement … until they do something like the unjustified killings of black people … and letting white people off the hook. Oh, and browbeating women.

    • Hello Nan. There is a reason respect is earned and shouldn’t be demanded unreasonably. I also respect the good police officers, but we need them to stand up and report the offenders in their ranks. it seems to be forgotten that the seals in his own unit turned in Eddie Gallagher. He could have kept killing civilians and doing war crimes, but he own people knew it was wrong. We need police officers that have that courage and professionalism. Oh I got an alert on my phone of another mass shooting. Hugs

  3. View from outside the police ranks:
    Barr: “be nice to cops and don’t demand they obey the law or you’ll lose the service you already don’t get from them.”

    • Hello MDavis. Yes. They want and crave an authoritarian state. They love the power Russian and Chinese leaders have. They want to be unquestioned. We are screwed. Hugs
