The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — President Trump delivered a speech to a group of applauding police officers on Long Island, New York, Friday in which he advocated rough tactics by police in dealing with criminal suspects.

"When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, 'Please don't be too nice,'" Trump said, as reported by HuffPost. "Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head, I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"

Trump also repeated an often challenged claim that laws are "horrendously stacked" against law enforcement. And in keeping with the president's policies, the Justice Department has limited investigations into charges that some police departments engage in constitutional abuses and racially discriminatory behavior that are deeply rooted in police culture.

Vanita Gupta, who was in charge of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division under former President Obama, called Trump's speech to the Long Island police officers "unconscionable."

"The president of the United States, standing before an audience of law enforcement officials, actively encouraged police violence," Gupta said. "We call on the president to immediately and unequivocally condemn police brutality. We can all respect our law enforcement officers without sanctioning unjust and illegal behavior."
