Police Union Pres: ‘Ideas Don’t Throw Bricks at Officers’ Heads’

October 8, 2020

In a remote interview with Fox News, Joe Gamaldi, National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) vice president, asserted Wednesday prior to that evening’s vice presidential debate that Democrat nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris need to clarify their position about the domestic terrorists of Antifa.

“Vice President Biden said Antifa is an idea. Well, excuse me, but ideas don’t throw bricks at officers’ heads…,” Gamaldi said. “They don’t hit officers in the head with baseball bats… They don’t throw Molotov cocktails, and they don’t attempt to assassinate police officers. Vice President Biden, frankly, owes an apology to every single law enforcement officer across this country that puts a uniform on every single day.”

Gamaldi, who also serves as the president of the Houston Police Officers’ Union, said law and order must be a central theme of the debate, noting that “a recent Monmouth University Poll said that 65% of Americans said that law and order was a serious issue in this country.” He added that murders are “spiking in all our major cities across this country.”

The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest law organization of law enforcement officers in the world, with 355,000 members in more than 2,100 local lodges.
