As cries grow from the left to defund police departments across the county, police are looking for elected officials who have their backs. Just this week, the largest police union in the state of Florida conducted an emergency vote to make clear where they stood in the upcoming presidential election by endorsing President Donald Trump.
The 30,000-member Florida Police Benevolent Associations decision was announced Friday in an op-ed written by union President John Kazanjian in the Florida Sun Sentinel.
Kazanjian, told Fox & Friends on Friday that his organization voted unanimously to back the president over presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
According to Kazanjian, the move to back Trump began with his call for an emergency meeting via conference with all the chapter and charter presidents and the board of directors together.
He explained to Fox News that he told meeting attendees that it was time for the union to take a stand for cops across the country and endorse President Trump.
Were getting beat up. Were being used like a punching bag, and were tired of it, he said.
Urging the board to back the president, Kazanjian said he spelled out to the leadership that President Donald Trump has been there for us. He supported us.
According to the union president, he almost immediately got a motion and second to endorse the president and believe it or not, we got a unanimous vote.
