Left’s “anti-cop” vitriol to blame for drop in recruitment of Black cops

Maryland Fraternal Order of Police president Clyde Boatwright and LAPD officer Deon Joseph blamed the decline in the recruitment of Black officers nationwide on the movement to “defund the police.”

Speaking with Bill Hemmer on “America’s Newsroom” Friday, the law enforcement representatives – both Black – lambasted the left’s anti-cop rhetoric.

“The major issue is you have the inability, almost-improbability of getting African-Americans to join due to the diabolization of police officers over the last six or seven years,” Joseph said.
