Obama's Patronizing Police

New transgender training for cops, plus an unnecessary warning for Louisiana.

Not content to wage a war on cops over trumped up charges of racism, Barack Obama has a new training program for police. Officers will learn how to treat transgender individuals through the Social Justice™ Department’s Community Relations Service. “In one of the [training] examples,” according to the DOJ, “the video demonstrates an officer laughing [at] a transgender individual who appears to be the victim of a crime, and the officer’s partner pulls him aside to correct his behavior. Afterwards, the offending officer apologizes for his prior conduct and approaches the rest of the interview with the necessary respect and professionalism. This illustration not only highlights how officers should act with members of the transgender community, but also addresses the need for officers to say something to their peers when they see problematic behavior.”

Sgt. Brett Parson, who narrates the video, says, “If someone feels disrespected, they’re less likely to trust us or cooperate.” Well, yes that’s pretty much true of anyone in any walk of life. But the reason Obama’s DOJ feels the need to train police in this way says a lot more about Obama’s agenda than it does about actual policing practice. Are police fallible? Absolutely. But cramming the homosexual agenda down their throats isn’t going to make anything better. Just look at the effect such “tolerance” has had in other sectors…

In related news, Obama issued an incredibly patronizing reminder to emergency personnel responding to massive flooding in Louisiana: “Care must be taken to ensure that actions, both intentional and unintentional, do not exclude groups of people based on race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), religion, sex, or disability.” One particular response to this tripe was pure gold (grammar errors in original):

Dear Mr President,

I want to thank you for reminding us in South Louisiana not to discriminate against anyone based on race or religion. Had you not reminded us of this I don’t know what we would have done. See we rode around in a boat saving people and well race or religion never entered my mind. Not once. It didn’t enter my buddies mind or my wife’s. Just saving people.

I understand you may be miss informed because of all the race baiting that the media did a couple months ago here is South Louisiana. But I assure you that’s not what we stand for in South Louisiana. We love each other when the times get hard. We look out for our own. Now I know this doesn’t fit your agenda. But facts are facts.

Thanks
The true citizens of Louisiana
