The following article, Police Chief Kneels With ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protesters, Then Entire SWAT Team Resigns, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right.
Some cops are fed-up.
From Miami Herald:
The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department.
On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said.
Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.
Here’s some randomness from the Twitterverse…

This push to defund the police by BLM and Antifa isn’t about George Floyd or racism, it’s about collapsing institutions and democracy. These destructive “New terrorist” groups are spreading hatred globally while being idealized by the Canadian Media and the Trudeau Government. https://t.co/mQ2RNOR0BT
