The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — A prominent black policing group met behind closed doors with Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday to voice its concerns about comments President Trump recently made to a group of police officers in which he appeared to approve roughing up suspects.

The group is worried that the president's remarks could worsen relations between the police community and racial minorities.

"We are not thugs. We are professionals," said Perry Tarrant, the group's leader, after the meeting with Sessions, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. "We fully expect law enforcement around the country to behave as professionals."

During his address to the police officers in Brentwood, N.Y. on Friday, Trump described suspects as "animals" who should be treated roughly.

"Please don't be too nice," Trump said. "Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know the way you put your hand so they don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody you can take that hand away."

Tarrant, who is an assistant police chief in Seattle, said he told Sessions that those types of comments from the president of the United States detracts from the legitimacy of the police and erodes the trust between law enforcement and the people they are supposed to serve.

After Trump's speech, police departments across the nation distanced themselves from his comments and affirmed their commitment to treating suspects with respect.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that Trump was merely joking when he made the controversial remarks.
