The "Police Brutality" Speech In Reality

The

During the speech at Suffolk County Community College, Trump encouraged officers to be more violent with criminal suspects.

'Like when you guys put somebody in the auto and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?' the president continued, mimicking the gesture.

The Suffolk County Police Department, which sent officers to the speech, tweeted afterwards that it maintains strict regulations around the handling of prisoners.

In a statement, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said, "The NYPD's training and policies relating to the use of force only allow for measures that are reasonable and necessary under any circumstances, including the arrest and transportation of prisoners".

While speaking about the administration's efforts to take on global gangs to law enforcement officers at the Suffolk County Community College in Long Island, New York, Trump joked that officers should be rougher with suspects and suggested letting them hit their heads on police cars.

Civil rights groups also criticized the remarks, with the American Civil Liberties Union saying they would exacerbate tension between police and civilians. Like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head.

"What the president recommended would be out of policy in the Los Angeles Police Department", Mr. Soboroff told The Los Angeles Times.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has instructed the Justice Department's law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to prioritize the prosecution of MS-13 members, as directed by an executive order Trump signed in February. That was particularly galling considering the president spoke to an audience made up of officers from the Suffolk County Police Department, whose former chief was sentenced to prison for beating a suspect.

Trump's speech was about curbing the MS-13 gang in LI.

"Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously", the department wrote.

But it didn't stop in NY.

"Trump endorsed police brutality in a speech to law enforcement while officers laughed and cheered", claimed Huffington Post editor Emma Gray.

Police leaders across the country moved quickly to distance themselves from - or to outright condemn - President Donald Trump's statements about "roughing up" people who've been arrested.

The president praised the increasing militarization of USA police, saying "You know, when you wanted to take over and you used military equipment - and they were saying you couldn't do it - you know what I said?"

His comments encouraging violence did not go down well with the people they were directed at.

In this city it is clear that, as the Justice Department concluded, the police force's "relationship with certain Baltimore communities is broken".
