The president of a Pennsylvania police union called Black Lives Matter protesters a “pack of rabid animals.”
Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police President John McNesby was responding to a protest the hate group held last week outside the home of a police officer who fatally shot an armed suspect in the back as he fled a traffic stop.

“When you go to work each day,” McNesby said, “you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family.
“These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence.”

McNesby was speaking at a “Back the Blue” rally that was protesting a controversial policy by Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney to release the names of officers involved in on-duty shootings.
The shooting is still under investigation, but much like was seen in Ferguson, the cop is being called a murderer by Black Lives Matter activists, according to NewsWorks.
Some on social media saw the truth in the union president’s remarks and accurately predicted what would follow:
https://t.co/U7OROmgQLt – This man speaks the truth. Go ahead and start calling him racist and demanding his ouster.

…and hyper-sensitive social justice warriors on the left didn’t disappoint:
Police unions have a history of electing members of the KKK as their union Presidents. The Philly police union President is a racist swine. https://t.co/5nh0rbXkgM

Wow. Look at the response black people get simply for asking not to be summarily executed on sight by police? https://t.co/oBx4xquPyb

When Black people unite, we r called animals. Does he call the KKK animals? They’re trying to paint #BlackLivesMatter as a hate group.
