Proof that Liberal Democrats hate the police!!

Coming from a family of law enforcement this means a great deal to me and makes me want to support Kerry even more.


Kerry Endorsed by International Brotherhood of Police Officers


Said IBPO President David Holway, John Kerry has been a friend of law enforcement officers for nearly thirty years, first as a prosecutor and now as a United States Senator, and the IBPO looks forward to working with him as President. After three and a half years of disappointing leadership under George Bush, we need to change course in November and elect a President with a real record of supporting police officers and a lifetime of standing with law enforcement.


Kerry has a strong record of standing up for law enforcement and the men and women who protect our communities. He led the fight in the Senate to fund efforts to add 100,000 police officers to our streets and supported the current ban on assault weapons, as well as measures to crack down on armor-piercing, cop killer, bullets. As a prosecutor, Kerry put away murderers and mob bosses while building a strong record of being tough on crime.


While IBPO backed George Bush in the 2000 election, he has let them down as President, cutting funding for programs that put cops on the street and threatening the overtime pay of thousands of police officers.

3. What's with the subject line?
Am I missing humor somewhere?

When I first heard this, I was quite pleased. I'm a liberal Democrat.

I don't hate the police.

4. It was my way of being sarcastic
Because if you ever listen to the talking heads on the right or most staunch Republicans they will gripe about how much democrats hate the police.

Meantime they support Republican politicians that see fit to cut their overtime and benefits.

How American eh?
