While speaking to black journalists about police relations with the community, Attorney General Loretta Lynch claimed that the general public does not have a good perception of law enforcement.
Stuart Varney of Fox Business interviewed Detective Steve Loomis of the Cleveland Police Department, who slammed right back, saying it’s leadership like that which divides this country.
Loomis said Lynch “couldn’t be further from the truth.”
“We as police officers come in contact with 1.1 million people nationwide every single day, and less than 1/8th of one percent of those encounters end in some type of violence – do the math on that,” Loomis said. “She should be ashamed of herself.”
Varney said the “perception” is that the police/community relations are deteriorating, and asked what Lynch should be doing?
Detective Loomis had many suggestions, saying there are a lot of positive things we can do in this country to change the perception. “I’m not a big fan of perceived notions, especially when they’re advanced by political figures and the media,” Loomis said.
Loomis said the activists “supported by Loretta Lynch and President Obama” are putting out a false narrative.
