Trump advocates roughing up the bad guys

President Trump went to Long Island Friday and spoke to a group of law enforcement officials about gangs, immigration and how to handle people being arrested.

Here is one passage:

Now, we’re getting them (MS-13 illegal immigrant gang members) out anyway, but we’d like to get them out a lot faster. And when you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon — you just see them thrown in, rough — I said, please don’t be too nice. (Laughter.) Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over? Like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody — don’t hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay? (Laughter and applause.)


We don’t need no stinky assumption of innocence until proven guilty. That sets community policing back a couple of decades.

    A couple of decades ago the streets were a lot safer!

    Well said Thomas. Although I’m wondering where the raised “conservative” voices are against Agent Orange’s plan to trash the Constitution here?

    I’m sure I’m just not listening in the right places.

    Is there anything that Trump can say about any subject, that isn’t met with derision, the cops in attendance laughed because it was funny, he wasn’t overriding the department’s rules or setting policy. Where was the scoffing when Obama said to bring a gun to a knife fight?

    Vernon I suspect that you’re not accusing Thomas of deriding Agent Oranges comments here, I sure am witness to that and believe me, it’s not because there haven’t been plenty that deserve such treatment.

    Maybe you’re right about him meaning this as a joke. It’s not how I took it, but hey, that’s just my opinion and in my opinion, it’s just not a topic that the president ought to be joking about.

    Reaction has come in though, with lots of police voicing their opinions that they don’t want their officers roughing people up.

    But, you’ll be surprised to know that one group agrees with you, and believes Agent a orange was joking; Black Lives Matter. So, there’s that.

  5. The constipated progressive left has a hard time deciphering when something was said in jest…geesh!

  6. deleted says:

    HFB are you suggesting Thomas needs more bran in his diet?

  7. Hey that was pretty funny! (and no I was not suggesting that at all).

  8. “[Adam] Carolla was by far the best thing about the hearing. He brought the whole thing down to earth. He made it real. He spoke glowingly about the role of mutual ribbing in friendships, and the importance of a healthy sense of humor – the opposite of snowflake-type self-seriousness and oversensitivity – to human interaction.” I watched about half of this hearing and it was quite interesting and germane to what’s happening with the stifling of free speech by the progressive left on college campuses. Shapiro and Carolla nailed it!
