The nation’s largest police union is calling on the Justice Department to investigate the fatal shooting of five police officers in Dallas Thursday night as a hate crime — and is criticizing President Obama for his response to the shootings so far.
“We’d like to see the president make one speech that speaks to everybody instead of one speech that speaks to black people as they grieve and one speech that speaks to police officers as they grieve,” said Jim Pasco, the executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 330,000 officers. “We don’t need two presidents, we only need one. We need one who works to unify the United States.”

It is our governments intention to pit Black against White and everyone against the Police. We all need to ban together and direct the fight at our own government. They are the ones screwing our country up in the name of greed and blaming it on the Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Police, Patriots and any other color or group they can get their hands on!
