Trump speaks in town hit hard by gang violence

No immediate military transgender change, top officer says

President Donald Trump traveled to Suffolk County Friday to address the gang violence problem that has racked this and neighboring communities.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police issued a statement saying, "Law enforcement officers are trained to treat all individuals, whether they are a complainant, suspect or defendant, with dignity and respect".

Trump said his administration is removing these gang members from the U.S., but added: "We'd like to get them out a lot faster and when you see... these thugs being thrown into the back of the paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, I said, 'Please don't be too nice'".

Today, President Trump travels to Long Island, N.Y., to talk about his administration's crackdown on the gang known as MS-13.

"For years and years, [laws have] been made to protect the criminal", Trump said.

The department issued the statement after Trump told police officers "don't be too nice" during a speech that was largely about combating criminal gangs. The tweets would hold a lot more weight if Trump had not been surrounded by SCPD cops who applauded and cheered when he told them it was fine to carelessly bang someone's head against a cop auto.

When a police officer takes someone into custody, you have no idea if they are guilty or not and it is illegal and unlawful for police officers to try to administer punishment when there have been no formal charges filed, no conviction, no sentencing. He vowed to deport any gang members here illegally and promised to have the backs of police and law enforcement. Those comments also received a lengthy applause. "I said, 'You can take the hand away, O.K.?'" "We're going to support you like you've never been supported before". It was the president's first speech on LI since he held campaign rallies in Bethpage and Patchogue a year ago.

Trump's visit came four months after U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions visited LI to make similar commitments just weeks after a quadruple murder in a Central Islip park.

The comment drew ire from several departments accusing Trump of normalizing police brutality.

"They're animals. We can not tolerate as a society the spilling of innocent، young، wonderful، vibrant people".

Trump's audience, mostly police officers from the Suffolk County Police Department, cheered Trump's praise for police brutality.

MacGillis wasn't the only one to immediately condemn the President's words.
