A police union just said five words that put an end to Elizabeth Warren’s political career
Elizabeth Warren is becoming a favorite in the Democrat Party.
She continues to climb in the polls, even topping Joe Biden in some state polls.
But a police union just said five words that put an end to Elizabeth Warren’s political career.
Increasingly, Democrats have become the anti-police party.
There is no greater example than a statement that came out from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren in recent days relating to the death of Michael Brown, who was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
Despite Obama’s Justice Department clearing the officer of any wrongdoing, Warren called his death a “murder,” and demands another investigation.
That’s when a Massachusetts Police Union boss fired back.
In a letter, the union boss blasts Warren for “making incorrect and inflammatory statements” about police officers.
They go on to explain that murder is a legal term, and that it is “incorrect and inflammatory” to use it in this case, considering the shooting was legally justified.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The Massachusetts Police Union blasted presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) for her misleading tweets about the death of Michael Brown, saying she unfairly accused the police of “causing our society grievous harm.”
Scott Hovsepian, president of the Massachusetts Coalition of Police, authored a letter criticizing Warren for misleading her followers by tweeting that Michael Brown “was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.”
An extensive report from President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice concluded that Officer Darren Wilson did not break any federal law when he shot Brown dead during an altercation.
“The Department of Justice (under President Obama) found that there was no criminal intent on Officer Wilson’s part. Therefore you should stop referring to him as a murderer,” the letter reads. “As a lawful professor, you may remember that murder is the UNLAWFUL killing of another. As no law was broken, there is no murder.”
It accuses Warren of pandering for votes by making “incorrect and inflammatory statements.”
While many major Democrats are becoming increasingly anti-police, there are a still a lot who aren’t.
In states like Iowa, where Democrats will face off for the first time, citizens aren’t as skeptical of police state like California.
So her vicious rhetoric is likely to come back to bite her.
