Of course. That's what all of the police unions do. They have a stranglehold on all local politics. If a judge dares to find the cop "not credible," there will be a concerted effort to ruin that judge, who must run in an election to main the seat on the court. If a DA refuses to pursue a criminal prosecution that the police want prosecuted, there will be a slowdown. I'm a union supporter but not for cops or correctional officers. At least, not with respect to disciplinary matters, i.e. accountability and transparency.
funny thing this had nothing to do with the police, texas will go to bat over their open carry law all day long, i guess unless its a BLM protester ..... he had ZERO reason to chime in he just liked the fact a protester got killedhttps://nypost.com/2020/07/28/head-of-austin-police-union-blames-shooting-on-blm-protester/
Oh right, lol. No police involvement, of course.
It doesn't even matter to this knucklehead. Interestingly, the national Fraternal of Police union has traditionally taken a pro-gun control stance. Of course, Texas is different, I know. But if you're an officer in Texas, Arizona, Florida, wherever, that's got to be pretty stressful not knowing who's shooting from where and when if everyone is packing heat.
Get kyphi to come over too.
