NYPD Calls Unreasonable Use Of Force 'Irresponsible' After Trump's Speech

The Trump administration is taking on the violent MS-13 gang. This is what’s in the works

In an appalling display, President Donald Trump gave a speech at a Long Island community college on Friday during which he encouraged the use of unauthorized and illegal police violence, asking police to be "rough" with criminal suspects, suggesting that police officers slam suspects' heads into their police vehicles when placing them under arrest.

The Daily Caller reports that while speaking about violent gang-members in a speech to law enforcement officers that focused on MS-13, Trump said officers shouldn't be "too nice" when putting violent criminals in the "paddy wagon".

"I said, 'You could take the hand away, OK, '" he said, drawing applause from many in the audience, which included federal and law enforcement personnel from the New York-New Jersey area.

NYPD joins a growing number of law enforcement agencies, officers and organizations that have denounced the president's remarks on Friday, including the Suffolk County Police Department, which reportedly had over 100 officers who attended Trump's speech.

"The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners", wrote the Suffolk County PD on Twitter.

Not really. But it's not police brutality to refrain from putting your hand on the head of a suspect to prevent them from bumping it on a auto door.

Police Department has forcefully rejected President Donald Trump's remarks that apparently advocated rough treatment of people in police custody, going as far as to say he "endorsed and condoned police brutality". 'Like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody. "Police misconduct or acts of brutality is not a joking matter".




The department's missteps - neither officer had activated his body camera, so there's no video evidence of the fatal encounter - resulted in global criticism and the ouster of Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau.

"Law enforcement officers are trained to treat all individuals, whether they are a complainant, suspect, or defendant, with dignity and respect. As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners".

The comments were made during an address largely focusing on the transnational, violent gang MS-13. Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously, ' the Friday afternoon tweet read.

Goff added that Trump's Friday remarks were unsafe because it would make even bystanders less likely to report violent crimes for fear of violent treatment from police.

On Saturday, New York police commissioner James P. O'Neill said the department's policies about the use of force "only allow for measures that are reasonable and necessary under any circumstances, including the arrest and transportation of prisoners", according to the New York Times.

That was just a small portion of the President's speech.

He told officers not to worry about injuring people while arresting them.
