Donald Trump Promotes Police Brutality During Speech

The Suffolk County Police Department, a law enforcement agency representing the jurisdiction in which Trump gave his speech, denied any support for the sort of violence the President mentioned. "I said you can take the hand away, OK?"

Trump's statement before a crowd of law enforcement officials in Long Island pointed to no specific suspect or alleged crime.

He also said that current laws were stacked against the police, and he was working to change that.

On his visit to Brentwood, New York, on Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump showed how little he understands the nuances of immigration, the signature issue of his campaign. One part of Mr. Trump's message, in particular, is causing a Social Media meltdown; the president talks about the kid gloves approach to arresting risky criminals.

"They like to knife them and cut them and let them die slowly, because that way its more painful, and they enjoy watching that, because they are animals", President Trump said.

When a police officer takes someone into custody, you have no idea if they are guilty or not and it is illegal and unlawful for police officers to try to administer punishment when there have been no formal charges filed, no conviction, no sentencing.

The gang speech was just the President's latest endorsement of physical violence against those detained by law enforcement.

"It is the policy of this administration to dismantle, decimate and eradicate MS-13", said Trump. "And they cheered", McKesson tweeted, posting a clip of Trump's comments about "thugs" in "paddy wagons".

Trump's speech proved so controversial that Suffolk County PD felt the need to send out this tweet clarifying its stance soon after. "And we're backing you 100 percent".

Trump likened the gang members to animals who "transformed peaceful parks and lovely quiet neighborhoods into blood-stained killing fields". Ramos says the administration's immigration rhetoric is scaring law-abiding immigrants and making them less likely to trust the police.

"The president of the United States, standing before an audience of law enforcement officials, actively encouraged police violence", Gupta said.

"Police can not treat every community like an invading army, and encouraging violence by police is irresponsible and reprehensible", he said.

The Suffolk County Police Department quickly pushed back against Trump on Twitter: "The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners".
