Police Union Accuses Lions Player as Acting Like ‘Wild Animal’ During Arrest

They also called him “dog crap” in their bizarre statement regarding the arrest.

Well, I am guessing that we are looking at the end of another NFL player’s short career due to his abusive behavior.

This time, it is Detroit Lions linebacker Trevor Bates who was arrested last week for refusing to pay his cab driver in New York City. It is bad enough he wouldn’t pay the cabby, but he reportedly went nuts in the police station and punched a cop in the face!

Bates was arrested Saturday and according to the New York Police Dept. he punched a police sergeant in the face in the precinct. Now a city police union is lashing out at the player and saying he acted like a “wild animal” during the arrest.

Bates was arrested for refusing to pay cab fare on Saturday, and the NYPD said the 25-year-old NFL player was extremely agitated during the 3 AM arrest. The police also said that at one point, Bates gave a sergeant a black eye because he “didn’t like the people in the room” while he was being fingerprinted.

Now, the New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association is lashing out at the player for his behavior, according to the New York Times.

The SBA put out a tweet accusing the player of acting like a “wild animal” and being “dog crap.”

“Trevor Bates acted beyond that of a wild animal,” the tweet read. “He refused to be fingerprinted, showed disdain for the officers & decided to punch a Sgt in the face. Fighting with officers, he was tasered & ripped the taser prongs from his body. He’s dog crap, and the NFL condones criminals.”

Naturally, the SBC immediately faced criticism for its choice of such harsh language.

Joo-Hyun Kang, director of Communities United for Police Reform, scolded the union for its “racist” language.

“If the allegations against Bates, including not paying his cab fare are true, he should be held accountable,” Kang told the Times. “But the constant use by N.Y.P.D. unions of racist dog whistles to dehumanize and criminalize black communities must be condemned, and end.”

The Lions issued a short statement Saturday saying, “We are aware of the arrest of Trevor Bates earlier today in New York. We have not spoken to Trevor as of yet and are still in the process of gathering more information. The Detroit Lions will have no further comment at this time.”

SBA president, Ed Mullins, though, had some advice for the team. Mullins said the Lions should cut Bates. He added that the claims of racism in the union’s tweet “is nonsense and an accusation probably designed to change the topic.”

“Those making the accusations better do their homework as to the facts and not a smear campaign,” Mullins told the Times.

Bates has already run through four NFL teams in his short career since first being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 2016. He has only spent a year or less with these teams, so my guess is that he’ll be waived and his career will be over.

BOMBSHELL: New Report to Show Obama Interfered MORE Than Putin In 2016 Election

WELL, WELL, WELL!!

Now that President Trump has been cleared of “colluding” with Russia during the 2016 election, more and more information points to the Obama White House’s wrongdoing. It looks like a new report, set to drop in May or June, will show that Barack Obama interfered more in the 2016 presidential election that Russian President Vladimir Putin. Former US Attorney Joe diGenova recently appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” He noted, “The Horowitz report is coming out in May or early June. There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone. That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWH8i5jQNPM MORE: BREAKING: FBI agents Joe Pientka and Mike Gaeta, along with DOJ official Stu Evans, are figuring prominently as witnesses in IG Horowitz’s investigation of department FISA abuses.

INSTANT CLASSIC: AOC Tries To Shame ‘GOP’ Lawmaker, But It Turns Out He Is A Democrat

A MUST SHARE!

Oh man, LOL. OH, BOY!! Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez…(pause to take a breath from laughing)…thought she was attacking the GOP. Instead, she proved how ignorant she truly is by not knowing that Rep. John Yarmouth is a Democrat. If this isn’t an instant classic than nothing is! From Daily Wire: Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat. The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!” https://twitter.com/KYGOP/status/1121440855770968065?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121440855770968065&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra AOC’s response: https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121455629149921280?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121455629149921280&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra YIKES! https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121451199918739456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121451199918739456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra Right before the screw up, AOC was doing what she does best: blasting Republicans on Twitter. LOOK: To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system: Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?” Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?” Bc that question reflects WAY more people. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121421715324772354 Reminder: – Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration – Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes. – Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121434432840376322 Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.” Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in…
