But some law enforcement groups have sought to distance themselves from comments the president made during the speech in which he told police they shouldn't be "too nice" to criminal suspects.

In the speech in Long Island, New York, that largely focused on the MS13 gang, Trump told officers "Please don't be too nice" to crime suspects. "T$3 hat's what I'm looking for", the president said. Like when you put somebody into a auto and you protect their head?. "Like, 'Don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head.' I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"

President Donald Trump's speech at Long Island Suffolk County Community College has been met with extremely polarized responses.

"The NYPD's training and policies relating to the use of force only allow for measures that are reasonable and necessary under any circumstances, including the arrest and transportation of prisoners", commissioner James O'Neill said in a statement.

Not really. But it's not police brutality to refrain from putting your hand on the head of a suspect to prevent them from bumping it on a vehicle door.

Goff also said that he has spoken to police chiefs and officers who are "disgusted" by "the president's statements ― and the applause" it received.

"For a president of the United States to encourage the police with a wink and a nod to be violent to citizens. shows that the president is not in any way committed to justice for all people", said Bill Murphy, Freddie Gray's attorney.

Likewise, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund criticized the comments as endangering those taken into police custody. Clearly, some humor is in bad taste and we will surely get some that attack us for seemingly defending the President's words but seriously, is there so much hatred for President Trump and law enforcement that the clear joke can not be seen? "As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners".

Trump's visit to his home state of NY came as Sessions was in El Salvador to increase worldwide cooperation against the gang. Police officers in Gainesville, Florida, offered up their own rebuttal.

"This led to protests, a riot and an unprecedented two-year spike in violence that now has the city on track for close to 400 homicides this year, more than NY, which is 14 times larger". Authorities say they also discovered an illegal gambling operation in the basement of the Santa Rosa Restaurant. Zeke Johnson, the senior director of programs at Amnesty International USA noted Trump's "inflammatory and hateful speech will only escalate tensions between police and communities".

Phillip Atiba Goff, the founder of the New York-based Center for Policing Equity, said in a statement issued Friday evening that Trump's speech was "dangerous", dehumanizing and "implied a disrespect for the rule of law".

Suffolk police confirm they arrested six men and issued summonses to three others for multiple violations.
