One Phoenix City Council Representative is speaking out in support of the police and is asking others to do the same. At a recent City Council meeting members of the Black Lives Matter movement disrupted it in order to publicly bash the police and present their anti-cop and racist narrative. While Mayor Greg Stanton let them take over the floor and apparently showed his support for the BLM, Councilman Sal DiCiccio spoke up in support of the police and was the lone voice speaking out against the BLM and anti-cop movement at that meeting. Councilman DiCiccio also spoke out again today on the matter. Here’s his release in it’s entirety. Thank you Councilman for standing up for the police.
Police Need Politicians to Speak up Against Extremist Movement
Below is a link where the Mayor prevents me from defending the police against the rhetoric of supporters of the Black Lives Movement.
I believe it is time for politicians at City Hall and across our state to push back against the harmful rhetoric of the Black Lives Movement.
At the last city council meeting I was clearly told that I was able to publicly defend our men and women in blue. What you will see on this tape is Mayor Stanton using a procedural move to prevent my ability to make a statement defending those who defend us.
I fully agree that the other side has the right of free speech, but so do we. I fully understand that there are those politicians that would like to avoid this issue for fear that it could damage their own political lives, but police lives matter too.
