A courageous officer warns – “America, we are leaving”

President Trump is scheduled to hold a rally at the end of the week in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While he’s in town, Mr. Trump should make a point of visiting with Major Travis Yates, a local police commander who last week published a wrenching warning to all who love this country.

In an essay that appeared in LawOfficer.com, Major Yates wrote, “I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them. It’s over, America. You finally did it. You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.”

Major Yates exemplifies the title of his book, The Courageous Police Leader. To hear such an officer saying we have so demoralized, undermined and exposed to attack our law enforcement personnel that they won’t continue to serve, demands immediate presidential and national attention – and urgent corrective action.

This is Frank Gaffney.
