“Put it on YouTube. Put it on Facebook. Trump 2020.” And they did. And now he’s on suspension.

Kind of makes one question this person’s intelligence, doesn’t it? NYC went 80-20 against Trump last election, this guy loudly broadcasts political messages, gets caught because people take him up on his dare.

Wouldn’t happen if the officer were in Texas, Florida or Ohio probably more join in if they saw that.

Bass,

It happened in Miami and the cop got disciplined. Nice to see your situational ethics on full display.

Mayor Bill de Blasio promised swift action tweeting: “ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences.

Yeah, he should not just promise but actually order swift action on reducing crime in his city and make rioters, arsonists and thieves face consequences instead of having what's left of the police release criminals the next day after they're arrested. He won't though. What's up with that?

Yep but city employees can gather to paint BLM support messages on the street.

Yep, that is the rule of the game. Different rules for different stripes.

Exact equivalent given BLM holds an office and is running for re-election.

It’s just so funny that a dumb story like this would make it onto here.

What are your thoughts on this police officers actions?

Yeah, he violated the rules and he must have his wrist slapped.

It's understandable though that he and the rest of the cops in this country support Trump being as how the Democrats are defunding them.

Yes, he should face the consequences of breaking rules put in place to prevent perceived voter intimidation.

It's understandable though that he and the rest of the cops in this country support Trump being as how the Democrats are defunding them.

You have any cites to evidence that “most of the cops in this country” support Trump? Is that evidence a survey, which, according to you, can’t be trusted?

P. Smith - What are your thoughts on this police officers actions?

That if the officer had broadcast a pro-only-some-black-lives-matter message, democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio would have offered to ride along, and take a turn shouting a political message. Even if that violated department rules.

There you have it. When asked what you think about this police officers actions your answer was hyper partisan rhetoric. Seems he exposed a weakness in your ability to justify this officers actions.

So, what are your thoughts on what this police officer actually did instead of your thought on a hypothetical of your own creation?
