Fraternal Order of Police go after Psaki for comments on crime

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki just drew major heat for her insensitive comments on crime from one of the nation’s largest police unions.

Appearing on a leftist podcast last week, Psaki said: “And then on Fox is Jeanine Pirro talking about ‘soft-on-crime consequences.’ I mean, what does that even mean, right? So there’s an alternate universe on some coverage. What’s scary about it is a lot of people watch that.” 

Here’s some news for you Jen – that alternate universe that you’re talking about is the real world, outside of the heavily guarded complex surrounding the White House. Out here with the rest of us in our “alternate universe,” crime really does matter.

And when Soros-backed DA’s let murderers out with zero bail, it hurts us, not you.

That’s exactly the point that the police unions made.

Fox reports:

The Fraternal Order of Police, America’s largest police union, harshly criticized Jen Psaki on Monday after the White House press secretary mocked Fox News’ coverage of rising crime rates and questioned the validity of discussing “soft-on-crime consequences.”

And that wasn’t all. Psaki also drew fire for laughing off crime from her safe perch in the White House.

“I think it’s wrong—very wrong—for Ms. Psaki to suggest that violent crime in our country is of no concern or to just laugh it off,” President of the Fraternal Order of Police Patrick Yoes said in a statement on Monday.

“She may feel safe in the White House, one of the most protected buildings in the United States, but not everyone feels safe in their workplace,” Yoes continued. “The world we find ourselves in is dangerous and is becoming increasingly more so. Tens of thousands of people have been the victims of crime this month alone and some of them never made it back home.”

Well said.
