VIDEO: Trump Says Cop Killers Will Get Death Penalty If He Wins

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Thursday vowed to issue an executive order to mandate the death penalty for anyone who kills a police officer.

“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order, if I win, will be to sign strong, strong statement that would go out to the country, out to the world, anybody killing policeman police woman, police officer, anybody killing police officer, the death penalty is going to happen,” he said.

“We can’t let this go,” he added, speaking to a New Hampshire crowd alongside the New England Police Benevolent Association, shortly after the group voted to endorse Trump, the Hill reports.

Another glaring example of how Mr Trump has either never heard of the Constitution or could care less what it says. No matter how feel good the thought of cop killers getting the death penalty, and it is, that's for the legislative branches of government, state and federal, to determine. And there are already a number of states that have legislated out the death penalty. Mr Trump might get my vote if he stopped his blustering and simply stated his beliefs and intentions. Simply, so that everyone could understand what he feels and recognize a real intent to follow the Constitution and the Law. Just like Cops!

I may not agree entirely with everything that Mr. Trump is saying, but, he is not trying to be politically correct to make everyone happy. His statements are at least getting people to start talking about what should be done to make this country safer. Politicians only say what is politically correct in the hope that they can please all voters. This results in nothing being accomplished by our leaders. Mr. Trump stated that there should be a temp ban on all Muslims entering the country and has taken a lot of heat for it. I just read a news article that the Obama administration has just started doing something like Trump stated. They are not accepting any more K-1 visas until they can better review the 90,000 pending visa requests and can put in place better safeguards for screening new applicants. Go Mr. Trump.
