Detroit Police Chief Fires Back At Rep Tlaib, Killing Her Anti-Police Narrative With Truth
Liberals are encouraging this anti-police movement. They are constantly attacking the police, slandering them with claims of being abusive or attacking innocent "peaceful" protesters. But this is just the MSM and Libs trying to destroy the police credibility in an attempt to bring our nation into a state of chaos, with their defund the police movement. Rep Tlaib came at the Detroit police with wild accusations claiming the police were harassing peaceful protesters. But Police Chief James Craig claims that's not what happened at all...
Tlaib posted the following on Twitter:
"This is outrageous. Our city fought hard to have an elected commission to oversee abuse and misconduct by police. Detroit Board of Police Commissioners: I hope you understand the gravity of this, especially if not fully investigated, documented and addressed."
And then posted the following misleading video.

But that's only telling half the story. The Detriot Police released the dashcam video and explained that the officers thought they were being fired upon when the protesters broke their back window. So they were only retreating to de-escalate the situation.
Chief Craig commented on the incident.
“Early on, during the protests, we were met with violence, not like many of our other cities that we saw across the nation. But I gotta tell you: For her and a few others, a minority to suggest that the police performed in an outrageous manner, clearly these officers felt they were in danger, and I’ve talked to a number of police officers; I’ve talked to the union; I’ve talked to community members over the last 24 hours; they support the officers; they can clearly see that they were dealing with a group of violent criminals, not protesters.”
They broke the police cruiser's back windshield and could have been shooting for all the police knew. This is not a group of peaceful protesters. These police officers did their best in the situation to prevent it from getting worse and are lucky they left with their lives. The protesters were fortunate that there were not more officers available to start arresting them since many of them should have been arrested. This is just Dems trying to demonize the police, who are out there trying their best to keep our communities safe and struggling to contain these hateful mobs.
