Florida Swat Team Resign Over “Political Climate” And Prioritizing Safety Of Dogs Over Team Members.
The Nation has lost control over the death of George Floyd, rioting, looting and violence becomes the “new normal”. Earlier, California looters turned on each other as they brawl over looted clothing.
Now, all 10 members of the swat team in Hallendale Beach, Florida have resigned, citing the “political climate” and safety concerns in a letter sent to the department’s Police chief.
The letter to Chief Sonia Quinones is dated June 9, and the team members said they were “minimally equipped, under trained and often times restrained by the politicization of our tactics to the extent of placing the safety of dogs over the safety of the team members.”
The team members added that their current situation and several recent local events have made officers increasingly hesitant, which “creates safety issues that cannot be ignored or overlooked.”
“Until these conditions and sentiments are rectified and addressed, we cannot safely, effectively and in good faith carry out duties in this capacity without putting ourselves and our families at this needless increased level of risk,” the officers wrote.
