It wasn't too long ago President Trump quipped this sentiment to a bunch of police officers. Some months later, an officer was "not too nice" to the point of choking a man to death.
No, President Trump probably did not mean that officers should seriously endanger suspects or, as in the case of George Floyd, assassainate them or manhandle them in such a way as to effectively murder.
However, this kind of wink-and-nod banter is just yet another reason this guy shouldn't stay the President. He doesn't appreciate the weight of his own words across the full spectrum of the population that he presides over.
The apprehension of suspects and how they are treated while in custody is a serious matter, and is apparently an all-too-often breached protocol as it is, let alone when something an officer does, in fact kill someone. The President should have the common sense that something like this will come back to haunt him sooner or later
He doesn't have that common sense, or respect. So as far as I'm concerned, here is the haunt.
