Trump: Kill a cop, lose your life

Last December, the Hill reported:
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.

  1. "The constitutionality aside ..." Pretty scary when you don't mind tossing the Constitution to the side to support a candidate.
    Gee, it wasn't long ago that Rs were blowing their stacks over Obama's use of Executive Orders. It seems like Trump wants use that very same medium to do a lot of things well. Interesting.

    4. The constitution said bye bye a long time ago. Holding people to it now is like expecting Bill Clinton to honor his marriage vows all of a sudden, and makes as little sense. We are in that mode of governance where the left does what it wants to without feeling any need to consult the constitution, so why should we feel restrained by it? perhaps it will get more respect when we do a few things we like out of bounds of the rules, too.

    5. Anon - Did I say I want cop killing to go on? You and teapartyquack - responding in typical Surbot fashion - putting words in other people's mouths.
      What I said was it's scary that Surber thinks Trump has a great idea even though it is conflict with the Constitution. And teaquck - when did the Constitution say "bye bye"? Even Surber once posted on this blog that he couldn't think of one thing Obama has done that was unconstitutional. Enlighten Surber and me. What has the left been doing that is unconstitutional.
      The Rs own the statehouses across the land and in D.C. and the Supreme Court has been a majority of R appointees until recently but some how the left still runs the country? This blog is comedy gold.

    1. Well, Nixon was a good president, all told. Head and shoulders above Carter, Clinton, O'Bama just to name a few.

      He was shot down by the same MSM we have to deal with today and his "big crime" was - what?

      A minor breakin having nothing to do with state secrets such as the HildeBeast was shopping around.

  3. I think that Glenn Reynolds observed recently that it would be necessary to elect a white male Republican president in order to get the liberals and their opinion-makers interested in constitutional governance again.

  6. Constitutionally, Congress would have to make it a federal crime to kill a police officer with a mandatory death penalty, but a president, Trump would have the authority to request such legislation.

    Such a law would be redundant in Texas which classifies killing a cop as a first-degree felony. The punishment is the death penalty for adults and life without parole for minors.
