The Police Officers’ Defense Coalition, in association with the National Center for Police Defense, condemns these violent and destructive actions by members of Antifa and BLM. Peaceful protests have been part of America’s history since our beginning, but riots leading to violence and looting are unwarranted and must be quelled by the authorities. Anarchy cannot and will not be tolerated by the law enforcement community. Rioting over police officers doing their job to protect and serve cannot be overlooked.
James Fotis, President of Police Officers’ Defense Coalition said, “Now is the time for all law-abiding community members to join together and stand with law enforcement before their streets are overtaken by those who only care about corrupting the bond that joins us together. Police Officers’ Defense Coalition and our heroic police officers know that a world without laws- and law enforcement- will become a world without hope.”
The Police Officers’ Defense Coalition is a 501(c)4 nonprofit organization that works to bridge the gap and build a movement made up of civilians, active and retired law enforcement officials, and politicians to protect the men and women in blue that serve our communities and our country.
