Miami Beach Fraternal Order of Police Submits Resolution to National FOP Delegates Condemning Hate Speech on All Sides
Delegates voted in favor of the resolution calling for positive and productive public discourse on behalf of all citizens
Miami, FL – August 31, 2017 – The Miami Beach Fraternal Order of Police William Nichols Lodge #8 submitted today a resolution to the FOP’s national delegation to affirm law enforcement’s role in protecting free speech and to condemn groups who cloud national discourse by promoting hate, violence and destruction of property. The resolution was overwhelmingly approved by delegates of the FOP at the 63rd Biennial National Conference in Nashville, TN.
“The lack of civil discourse that is currently driving the national conversation, coupled with a rise in the use of violence, hate and destruction to voice our opinions, is a very dangerous combination for our society,” said Miami Beach and Florida State Fraternal Order of Police President Bobby Jenkins. “Our nation’s growth has been pushed forth by our sense of community and humanity, much like what we have seen in Houston this past week. As servants of those communities, the Fraternal Order of Police believes it is our duty to protect and defend the rights and liberties of all, regardless of sex, gender, color, nationality, political belief or otherwise.”
The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of law enforcement officers consisting of over 330,000 members. The FOP is made up of men and women of all races, colors, religions, national origins, sexual orientations, political ideals and beliefs.Paused
