Lenoir Police Chief Scott Brown is taking a stand against President Trump, specifically his comments on police interaction with suspected gang members.
(AUDIO: Please listen to the above report to hear this quote).
Those comments were addressed to officers on New York’s Long Island Friday.
In a Facebook Post aimed at department staff, Chief Brown says he trusts that training and professionalism would never allow his team to accept the advice. He goes on to say that force will be guided by judgement, training, policy and the law.
Responses to the Chief’s post were mixed – some agreeing, others saying the President was joking.
