Suffolk Police Reject Trump Order to Rough-Up Latino Suspects

Trump and his Cop Props.

At his speech yesterday in Brentwood, Donald Trump told police that they should “rough”-up Latino immigrants taken into custody. This prompted a response from the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) which said that:

“The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners. Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously.”

The police who are most involved in working to end MS-13 violence said that:

“As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners.”

Trump’s rambling and nearly incoherent speech advocated police violence against people of color while making a whole host of self-aggrandizing statements. You can read more about the speech here.
