Police Group Criticizes Dayton’s Hasty Reaction to Shooting
[AMERICANEXPERIMENT.ORG] In Minnesota, there has been an outpouring of anger at Governor Mark Dayton, who within hours after the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by a St. Anthony police officer, alleged that the incident was due to "racism," even though he knew nothing about the officer, Jeronimo Yanez, and next to nothing about how the incident unfolded. Despite that wave of criticism, Dayton says that he "stands by" his premature, uninformed accusation against Yanez.

Now criticism of Dayton’s performance has gone national, as the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations tells the Washington Post that Dayton’s remarks "exploited a horrible and tragic situation."
Well sure, he's a Democrat, and the 2016 election plan for the Democrats is to exploit racial tension to get black voters to the polls. He's just reading from the script.
"I think right now, the overriding emotion collectively is one of sadness, I think it’s one of anger and I think it’s one of resignation in the sense that I still have a job to do," Bill Johnson, executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, told The Washington Post on Friday. "But there’s got to be a fear, a concern, that because of the job, because of the uniform I wear, I’m being targeted."

That concern is obviously well-founded, given the multiple attacks on coppers in recent days.

Johnson said [Governor Dayton] "exploited what was already a horrible and tragic situation."

"Whether race had something to do with it or not, I don’t know, because I can’t get into the officer’s head," Johnson told The Post. "And neither can the governor."

Mark Dayton has embarrassed Minnesota, by no means for the first time. The least he can do is apologize for his inexcusable rush to judgment and from here on, if he has nothing constructive to say, maintain a dignified silence.

#3  Minnesota has a history of electing fools - this guy, Al Franken... Little rich boy Dayton hated police from his youth - was maced by police during Vietnam War protests. Voted one of six worst senators during his time there...his political zenith apparently.

Premature ejaculation feels good but serves no real value social purpose. Cleanup is messy (I'm told).

#5  The fact that Minnesota voters put Dayton in office and keep him there speaks volumes for their situation.

Flynn slams Clinton, indicates support for abortion rights
[USATODAY] The latest name to surface in Donald Trump's vice presidential search criticized Democrat Hillary Clinton
... sometimes described as The Liberatress of Libya and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as Another Al Haig ...
on Sunday for what he called a lack of leadership in the wake of last week's shootings involving police and African Americans.

Retired Gen. Michael Flynn, speaking on ABC's This Week, also indicated he supports abortion rights and downplayed the significance of the same-sex marriage issue, saying the election should be about national security.

"It's about leadership, and it's about responsible leadership as well," Flynn told ABC. "The country is going in the wrong direction."

Flynn said Clinton's comments after this week's violence -- the shooting deaths of two African-American men by police and the killings of five coppers in Dallas -- were "totally irresponsible when she talked about white people being to blame. I mean, that is so irresponsible."

A Clinton supporter, Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, told ABC that Clinton also honored coppers and said all people should respect the difficult jobs they do. He said the Democratic presidential candidate has "been somebody who’s tried to heal the divisions of our country."

The retired general, who once worked in the B.O. regime, also criticized the FBI for declining to recommend prosecution of Clinton over her use of private email as secretary of state.

#1  Well he did sit in the corner office at the Silver Bullet (DIA). That may be where is 'Pro-Choice' stance is coming from.
