According to Breitbart News, Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise slammed liberal protestors trying to defund the police.
Scalise said, “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the best of what policing is and as you mentioned, the United States Capitol Police, David Bailey and Crystal Griner are the epitome of what law enforcement officers around this country are like, and the heroism that they display. And they saved over a dozen lives that day in their heroic actions.”
He added, “It really misses the mark of what we need to do to be making reform, to continue to fight for equality and justice while at the same time recognizing that every day there are police officers who save lives, who ran into the fire in 9/11, who do the heroic things.”
He continued, “Obviously, if there are bad apples, you’ve got to root out the bad apples. But, recognizing that, by and large the lion’s share of police officers in this country put on their badge every day and risk their lives to protect us in our communities.” You can read the full article here.
