Houston police chief hits out at politicians and NRA after officer death
They need to get in a room. I don’t want to hear about how much
they support law enforcement. I want hear how much how much they
care about lives and the sanctity of lives. Yet we all know in law enforcement that
one of the biggest reasons that the senate and Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn
and Ted Cruz and others are not getting into a room and having a conference
committee with the house and getting the Violence Against Women’s Act is
because the NRA doesn’t like the fact that we want to take firearms out of the
hands of boyfriends that abuse their girlfriends. And who killed our sergeant?
A boyfriend abusing his girlfriend. And the fact that his mom, his father, his
wife, his sisters, his friends, and ultimately the community that he laid down his life
for will be putting him to rest before Christmas because of the cowardice
of the political people that we have in office. You’re not a Republican.
You’re not a Democrat. You’re not a conservative.
You’re not a liberal. You’re not a progressive.
You’re an American and American blood is being shed every
day in this community, throughout this nation, and do something about it or retire.
