Trump: I will mandate death penalty for killing police officers
From the Hill:
“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order, if I win, will be to sign a strong, strong statement that would go out to the country, out to the world, anybody killing a police man, a police woman, a police officer, anybody killing a police officer, the death penalty is going to happen,” he said.
“We can’t let this go,” he added, speaking to a New Hampshire crowd alongside the New England Police Benevolent Association, shortly after the group voted to endorse Trump.
The outspoken businessman referenced the 2014 shooting of two New York City police officers in their squad car, which prompted significant outcry from some conservatives accusing President Obama of fostering resentment against police officers.
“I want to let you know, the police and law enforcement in this country, I will never ever let them down,” he said.
“The job they do and the job all you in this room do is second to none, and everyone in our country knows that.”The constitutionality aside, it is a great thought. Congress can pass it, if necessary. Law enforcement is the front line of the defense of our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Those who argue no special privileges for cops have a point. A universal death penalty for first-degree murder would make Black Lives Matter. Till then, I am cool with this approach.
