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.

WATCH: Sitting Dem Senator Threatens to Punch Trump In the Face, Then Calls for Peace

Another Democrat advocating for violence…

Dems love to say President Trump’s “rhetoric” leads to harm. Yet, they have no problem saying they literally want to physically assault the most powerful man on the planet. Where’s the logic? Can liberals even spell “hypocrisy?” From Daily Caller: Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester said Thursday the best way for Democrats to beat President Trump in 2020 is to “go back and punch him in the face” in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Tester noted, “I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it did you any good running away from Donald Trump. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. The truth is this guy is bad for this country.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=QDztkBropAI Democrats truly believe the words they say and have no comprehension of the term “irony.” Liberal rhetoric has greatly harmed Americans for a long, long while now, yet they have the gall to slam President Trump for speaking the truth. Insane.

It’s that simple. Democrats and the mainstream media will look the other way on anything so long as you disagree with Trump on everything. Check out the tweet Montel sent, which he of course deleted: Really? Calling for cops to tase a conservative white woman, huh?

CONFIRMED: Trump Is Raising More Money In California Than ALL 2020 Dems – Except Two

HAHAHAHA! Excellent.

Here’s a story you won’t see ANYWHERE but on conservative websites. And there’s a good reason for it. President Trump is raking in more cash in the Golden State than all but two 2020 Dems. Go figure, huh? From CalMatters: This may come as surprise to the president, the national media and more than a few Californians, but there are plenty of Trump supporters in the “Resistance State,” too. And since the beginning of the year, they’ve been spending a lot of money to keep the president in the White House. New campaign finance statistics show that President Donald Trump raised $3.2 million—more money from the California donor class than all of his Democratic challengers, but two. Not only that, but the Trump campaign collected more from itemized small donors—those who gave in increments of less than $100 at a time—than anyone else in the field. The president bested even Democratic contender Bernie Sanders in the small-donor sweepstakes.
