John McNesby, the head of a Police Union in Philadelphia, called Black Lives Matter a “pack of Rabid Animals” after their treatment of officers. He has had enough of people stopping them doing their job and turning up protesting at police officer’s homes, where their families live.
He said: “When you go to work each day, you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family,” McNesby said, speaking at the FOP headquarters.”These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence.”
More than 130 police officers were killed in the line of duty during 2016, and this year the trend has risen already by 30%. This figure does not include the enormous amount of suicides, not the amount of officers who are physically and/or mentally broken.
We have seen what happens when lawless areas have a lack of police officers…they get a hell of a lot worse very quickly. What do these hate groups really want? No police? Let’s see how long they without the police locking up criminals and how long before they come crawling back?
Society can and does work when the police have a high visibility presence with limited powers. Why is this so hard to figure out?
The president of a Philadelphia police union referred to the Black Lives Matter movement as a “pack of rabid animals” during a police rally.
Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 President John McNesby, speaking at a Thursday FOP event, criticized Black Lives Matter members for gathering outside the home of Officer Ryan Pownall to protest the fatal shooting of David Jones, a black man, reports NewsWorks.
“When you go to work each day, you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family,” McNesby said, speaking at the FOP headquarters.”These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence.”
Hundreds of former and current police officers came to the headquarters for the “Back the Blue” event to throw their support behind Pownall. The officer shot Jones after pulling him over for a traffic violation in June. The two got into an altercation and Jones tried to flee, prompting Pownall to shoot him in the back.
After facing pressure from Black Lives Matter protesters, the police department decided to release Pownall’s name to the general public. Black Lives Matter protesters showed up to Pownall’s house Aug. 24 and with his family present, took out bullhorns and carried signs saying Pownall was a murderer.
Activist Asa Khalif said his group would not be backing down, adding that they may show up to Ponwall’s house again to protest against him.
“We will not let words stop us. The only words we’re using is justice for David Jones, and we will not be sidetracked by the bullying tactics of the FOP,” said Khalif.
