Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wants to be president so bad that she’s willing to shame innocent law enforcement and accuse them of the most heinous crimes.
And now, a grieving widow and a slew of police unions, organizations, and officers warn that Warren’s words are going to get more officers get killed.
Warren kicked off the latest round of anti-police allegations on the fifth anniversary of the St. Louis riots.
The 2020 Democratic hopeful tweeted that the “unarmed” thief “Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.”
Warren said she would “stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.”
5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.

That had police hitting their roofs… because it’s a bald-faced lie! Even Obama’s administration proved it was a lie.
Obama’s Justice Department issued an 86-page report said that the “use of deadly force is justified” against Brown, and there was “no credible evidence” that Officer Darren Wilson wasn’t in danger of his life when he pulled the trigger.
The Obama administration also dispelled the notion that Brown got gunned down while raising his hands in the air and saying, “Don’t shoot.”
That never happened.
The crime scene shows Brown charged at Wilson, and “multiple eyewitnesses” saw Brown run at the cop, according to the DOJ.
The idea of an innocent man “murdered” by a racist police officer is so phony that even The Washington Post rated Warren’s claim 4 Pinocchios — indicating that it was a total lie. But this time, it hit a lot further than headlines: it hit home for a police widow.
Warren’s tweet came just one day before the anniversary of Deputy Tim Graham’s death — and his widow, Sherry Graham-Potter, went off.
“I am fed up,” she wrote in a letter to Elizabeth Warren. “I am sick to death of the lies. I am sick to death of the rhetoric.”
“I am sick to death of people, such as yourself, who are willing to push a false narrative regardless of how many times it has been debunked,” she continued.
Surviving police officers agreed that the Massachusetts liberal is putting officers in danger.

The Massachusetts Coalition of Police — a member of the powerful, pro-Democrat AFL-CIO labor union — tweeted out a letter calling Warren’s long history of anti-police statements “dangerous and dehumanizing.”
“Your labeling of law enforcement as racist and violent is unacceptable and dangerous.”
And they wrote, in all capital letters so she wouldn’t miss it: “YOUR POLITICAL PANDERING FOR PRESIDENTIAL VOTES IS GETTING POLICE OFFICES AND CITIZENS HURT AND KILLED.”
Re-tweet this letter to your local media and to @ewarren. Let her know that we are tired of her political pandering and expect someone in her position to choose her words more carefully. Blanket statements vilifying law enforcement are dangerous to our communities. pic.twitter.com/Ljdx9wUZYb

Warren has earned the contempt of police officers for years now. When she was running for re-election to the Senate a year ago, the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association endorsed Warren’s Republican challenger, Geoff Diehl, because of her rhetoric.
In 2018, the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association endorsed Warren’s Republican challenger, Geoff Diehl.
“We stand with the people who stand with us,” said the union’s president, Mike Leary, “and Elizabeth Warren has made derogatory comments to law enforcement.”
He said Warren “undermines our efforts to keep neighborhoods safe.”
The senator threw police under the bus during an event at Dillard University in August 2017, hosted by Congressman Cedric Richmond, D-La., when she said: “The hard truth about our criminal justice system, it’s racist. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back.”
In other words, any and everyone involved in it.
At the time, Frank Frederickson, the police chief of Yarmouth, Massachusetts, said Warren owed an apology to “the criminal justice system that she slapped in the face.”
Warren’s words were so over-the-top that then-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called them “a slander of every law officer and every prosecutor in America,” as well as “an insult to their families.”
Now even local Boston newspapers are standing up for the men on the thin blue line.
The Boston Herald wrote that “there is seemingly no end to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s attacks on law enforcement” and asked her to end her “vile rhetoric” about cops.
The paper recounted how she attacked ICE, and just days later a Cambridge man offered $500 to anyone who would kill an ICE agent…
When the media turns on you, you’re done.
After Sen. Warren’s latest foot-in-mouth incident, her campaign aides gave no comment to the left-wing website FactCheck.org and didn’t even respond to MSNBC… which tells you they know exactly how much trouble she’s in.
Police put their lives on the line to fight the most despicable criminals alive — murderers, human traffickers, and drug pushers.
Under Warren, should she be elected, they’d be fighting the president too.
