In the wake of a shootout with a career criminal which left one officer dead and another seriously wounded, San Antonio Police Chief William Mcmanus is lashing out at the anti-police crowd.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said Saturday he was angry at those who hate and do not back the police force. McManus, visibly upset, said he was angry at those who hate the police.

“I’m angry at the police haters, I’m sick of the police haters,” McManus said. “We protect them. We defend them. And they give us a big F U. And I’m sick of it.”

His comments come a day after officer Miguel Moreno died at Brooke Army Medical center from wounds received in a shootout with a man with an extensive criminal history.

A second officer, Julio Cavazos, was also wounded in the shootout that happened Thursday while the officers were on patrol near San Antonio College. Cavazos was shot in the chest but will recover.

There will always be people who despise the police – Lord knows some officers give people reason to hate them – but the groundswell of violence erupting from this nationwide epidemic is troubling. The previous president did a lot to undermine law enforcement and paint us as villains, and now some people are acting out. Sadly, things will get worse before they get better.

  1. Funny…that sure looks like the same William McManus who was the police chief in Minneapolis when I lived there. Sure is funny to hear a guy who did everything he could to be a rubber-stamp for idiotic city government which hand-cuffed the police at every turn crying about the monster he and guys like him helped create.

  2. I just don’t get it but then I have never lived in a city larger than 100K. I have family in law enforcement and the one thing my cousin always told us was to make certain we taught our children that the police are their friends and are there to help them. He emphasized to never, ever do anything to make your children afraid to ask a policeman for help or to paint them as some dark, nefarious force. As far as Obama, I’m sure much of his view of the police came from his days in the “choom” gang.

  3. Metoo – Obama is a despicable person, and he’s a terrible example to his children, especially since his oldest daughter was apparently caught smoking weed at a concert already.
