President Donald Trump infuriated anti-cop liberals everywhere on Tuesday when he called for the death penalty for those who kill police officers while he spoke at the Annual Peace Officers Memorial Service.
“We must end the attacks on our police and we must end them right now,” Trump said, according to Breitbart. “We believe criminals who kill our police should get the death penalty. Bring it forth.”
The ceremony was meant to memorialize 199 slain members of law enforcement, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC as part of National Police Week. During his speech, Trump talked about the family of slain New York City Police Officer Miosotis Familia, calling them to come up to the podium.
Familia was shot and killed in July 2017, when she was specifically targeted for wearing a police uniform in New York City by a man who had ranted against police on Facebook numerous times. Her partner, Officer Vincent Maher, said that even though she had previously been injured, Familia volunteered to return to patrol one of the roughest areas of New York City.
“She may have been lost that night but she saved a lot of lives in return, because of her memory and everything that transpired after the fact,” he said.
Trump made a point of hugging the fallen officer’s 90-year-old mother Adrianna Valoy.
“You’re representing something very important,” Trump said, praising the family. “She loved the department.”
The president also shared a message to young children at the ceremony who lost their parents.
“I want you to know that your moms and dads were among the bravest Americans to ever live. When danger came, when darkness fell, when destruction loomed they did not flinch, they were not afraid, they did not falter,” Trump said.
During the eight years Barack Obama was in office, police officers were rarely given the respect they deserve. We’re so glad to see that President Donald Trump is making helping American police officers and their loved ones a huge priority of his presidency.
