The worst fear as a police chief is to get up here and get that call. I got something written down but I got something I need to say. The media has blasted us for what we do and how we do it, basically portraying law enforcement as these bunch of bullies who go around and beat people up.
00:00:39
Well, I want you to look around in here and you look at this bond and you look at the bullies. We're not bullies. We're protecting our communities. And they throw us under the bus for it. And that's wrong. God bless the soul of Matthew Gerald, God bless his family and may he have mercy on us all.
