Just look at the climate that’s been created around this country. Police risk their lives day in and day out to protect citizens, and yet they have become the focus of criticism, attacks, and even murders. Barack Obama criticizes the police every chance he gets, so it’s no wonder that we see more and more instances of disrepect directed at America’s police officers. Not even a momument dedicated to officers who died in the line of duty is safe.
As reported in The Denver Post, red paint was poured over the fallen officer memorial of the Denver Police Department. This is the same type of vandalism that occurred on the monument last year.
Chief Robert White told reporters Monday morning that the culprit or culprits were “disturbed individuals.”
While no arrests have been made in the case, White said he is confident investigators will track down those responsible thanks to evidence already gathered. The memorial is under video surveillance, he said.
“I really felt sick,” White said of the vandalism. “That memorial really represents the men and women who have given their lives for this community. To deface it is just a dishonor.”

Maybe if Barack Obama showed more respect for police officers, others would too. Maybe if members of the so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement wouldn’t go around chanting “Pigs in the blanket, fry’em like bacon,” we’d have a much better relationship with law enforcement than we do now.
