The federal government will give $1 billion in grants to law enforcement agencies in every state to pay for the hiring and rehiring of law enforcement officers, Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder announced Tuesday.
"The tremendous demand for these grants is indicative of both the tough times our states, cities and tribes are facing, and the unyielding commitment by law enforcement to making our communities safer," said Attorney General Eric Holder in a statement.
Biden spoke of the bravery of police officers who never know when they might be shot, even on a simple call.
With rows of police officers standing behind him, he pointed out the hazards and uncertainty of police work.
"It's just astounding to me how much we take for granted what you do, and thankfully how much you take for granted what you do," said Biden.
"We ask you to go out to defend us, and you're entitled to be equipped to defend us," he added.
But evidently they are stupid for following police procedure and for trying to serve and protect the public, and they can be expected to be called out by an ignorant buffoon thug of a president at any turn.
Gosh, wasn't it ironic this was announced after the Thug in Chief stuck his foot in his ignorant and bigoted mouth?
