Did Cruz ‘lose the cops’ over Trump rally lecture?

Has Ted Cruz lost the support of police?

Syndicated radio host, and former law enforcement officer, John Cardillo said the answer is, yes.

According to Cardillo police officers he knows were angry at Cruz, and Rubio, for essentially blaming Donald Trump for the trouble at his scheduled rally in Chicago on Friday.

“I think a campaign bears responsibility for creating an environment, when the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence — to punch people in the face. The predictable consequence of that is that it escalates and today is unlikely to be the last such instance. We earlier today in St. Louis over thirty arrested. That’s not how our politics should occur,” Cruz said of the rowdy protests. “You know, the City of Chicago in 1968 saw some ugly days when politics descended into hatred and incivility and even violence and it is my hope that in 2016 that we can appeal to our better angels and avoid going down that road once again.”
