Thanks for the heads up SearSha; considering the number of threads here and media reports elsewhere that a large number of LEO’s lean far right and even wear the red hat it’s good to know about their shenanigans.

They are 'union members' when they fuck up, but 'back the blue' when it's convenient.  I really can't figure out which side he's on :lol:
The good guys.

The uniform doesn't determine that.

But being in a union clearly does. 

Are you really that stupid? 
There was a time when the GOP was pro-Union.  From the 1956 GOP Platform

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public. The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.

One of the many ways in which the parties swapped stances.

Apparently you haven't noticed that Police Unions and chiefs routinely endorse democrats.  Although, Bidden lost a lot of support there.

Meanwhile, the police are viewed and touted as right wing louts who must be put out of business.

Deliberately lying about the Proud Boys is a way for the left to promote fear of the right and offer salvation.

Cui Bono?

Sure, Jan

In any case, there is a growing recognition that police unions differ significantly from other unions. And there is a growing acceptance that they are not part of the larger American labor movement but rather a narrowly focused group pursuing their own self-interests, often to the detriment of the nation at large. White Wing

Sore-Ass is just another RWNJ serving the dialectic.

If he repeats it often enough, it becomes true.... in far-right cuckoo-land. The actual planet we live on, not so much.

In the strictly political sense, Democrats and police unions have been growing apart for decades. Unlike other labor unions, police unions across the country have increasingly and publicly aligned themselves with Republican candidates. The Fraternal Order of Police has not supported a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1996; it endorsed Trump in early September. Republican officials, who mostly oppose the right to organize, have become staunch defenders of police unions.

Unlike teachers' unions, which are closely allied with the Democratic Party, police unions, while still favoring the Democrats, come closer to splitting their contributions between the two major parties. In short, for many on the left, police unions are the redheaded stepchildren in an otherwise beneficent labor movement.

Conservatives, on the other hand, disapprove of labor unions generally but have given police unions a pass as part of their support of law enforcement. In short, they worry that criticism of police unions will be mistaken for criticism of the police. Republican officeholders have also enjoyed ties with police unions. For instance, in 2011, when Republican Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin and a Republican state legislature passed Act 10 to limit public-employee collective bargaining, they exempted police from the legislation. Iowa Republicans similarly carved out exemptions for public-safety workers in their 2017 reform of public-sector labor law.

Police unions have embraced President Trump, and many have endorsed his reelection. They supported him in 2016 too. But this year, the partisan divide is more stark as police themselves have become a central issue in this year's campaign.
