TRUMP ENCOURAGES UNNECESSARY POLICE VIOLENCE
"After Donald Trump on Friday made remarks which seemed to encourage rougher treatment of people in police custody, several police departments across the country came out and distanced themselves from the president's comments.
Speaking to law enforcement officers in Brentwood, New York, Trump said, "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you see them thrown in rough. I said, 'Please don't be too nice.' Like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody. I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"
He added, "When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head you know, the way you put their hand over [their head]. 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, OK?'" http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/police-departments-distance-trumps-comments-encouraging-police-violence/story?id=48931838
We all know which group of people are disproportionately subjected to police uses of force. Encouraging violence among white supremacist cops?
