Cops have noticed that Democrats have sided with BLM.
So it comes as no surprise that “virtually all police organizations have endorsed Mr. Trump. Police groups are endorsing Republicans at every level, many for the first time and by overwhelming votes.”
The nation’s largest police organization – the Fraternal Order of Police (355,000 members) –was unanimous for Donald Trump in the FOP’s national vote, Red Jahncke writes in the WSJ.
Also endorsing Mr. Trump are the National Association of Police Organizations, with around 241,000 members, the International Union of Police Associations (100,000), and the Police Benevolent Association of New York City (24,000), the largest big-city police union—its first-ever presidential endorsement.
The reaction of America’s 800,000 police officers is no surprise. “There’s only one party when it comes to law and order,” says John Krupinsky, president of the Connecticut FOP, whose local lodges voted unanimously to endorse Mr. Trump. The state lodge is endorsing virtually every Republican in the 187 races for the state legislature, except for four Democrats who broke ranks to vote against a bill limiting police liability protections and forbidding use of certain methods of restraining suspects. That law was enacted in a rushed special session in July and signed immediately by Gov. Ned Lamont. In August the Connecticut State Police Union adopted near-unanimously a resolution of no confidence in Mr. Lamont.
