The Philadelphia Police Department, after having no plan for three straight days of rioting, looting, and assaults on police, has finally lost all its credibility. While police officers and National Guard troops were protecting Police Headquarters – after it was surrounded by the mobs – a Deputy Police Commissioner ordered – ORDERED! – the officers and Guardsmen to take a knee in front of the rioters.
Don’t believe me? The video is below the fold.
The gall of this man! After seeing my fellow officers be ridiculed, attacked, and assaulted all weekend, this despicable slob orders his officers to kneel before their tormentors? And you actually complied with that order? What the f**k is wrong with you? A Deputy Commissioner cannot order you to kneel for anyone, let alone riotous criminals.
And for f**k’s sake, you Guardsmen knelt, too? He. Is. Not. Your. Commander.
Do you realize, “Deputy Commissioner,” how embarrassing this is for the rank and file? Do you realize, by this one action, you literally threw yourselves in with the Antifa anarchists? You forced these men and women to show fealty to people who want us dead. Whose side are you on?
Nevermind, you already revealed that answer.
This department is a f**king disgrace. The administration falls in line with the criminals at every single turn, while the cops in patrol get screwed over and over again. For a while I was optimistic about Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, but after this, she and her entire staff have lost me for good. This is a disgusting slap in the face to all of us who work so hard to keep criminals like Antifa at bay.

Thankfully, the Philadelphia FOP President immediately put out a statement:
Pres. Mcnesby has spoken with Commissioner Outlaw & DC Singleton regarding the incident at the PAB. If you want to take a knee for the Floyd family, it is your right. However, at no time will an Officer be ordered to do so.
