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.

Video: Pelosi Goes On Live TV, Says Senate Must Allow Witnesses to Testify Or ‘Pay A Price’

Sounds like a threat, doesn’t it?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is desperate. So is Rep. Adam Schiff and nearly every single Democrat in Congress. They can see the headlines from the liberal MSM now: TRUMP GOT AWAY AGAIN! DEMS FAIL TO BOOT POTUS FROM OVAL OFFICE! Of course, Dems always knew Trump was going to walk free, considering the GOP runs the Senate and there is zero proof of wrongdoing. However, Dems have completely lost the interest of the American public, as reports of impeachment viewership are staggeringly low. Nobody cares to tune in because they all know it is a partisan charade. Therefore, Pelosi and her ilk have to resort to silly one-liners in an attempt to pull people back to her cause. But it won’t work.

One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

Dershowitz Makes Clear: Bolton’s Book Allegations Linking Trump to Ukraine – Not Impeachable

Another fail…

John Salvatore

A member of Alan Dershowitz’s own family told him to change his last name because he had the audacity to work with President Trump’s legal team. That’s how ridiculously political everything has become these days. Whoever that family member was, he or she won’t be happy to hear what Dershowitz just said about former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s new book, which apparently says Trump intentionally withheld aid to Ukraine. From The Hill: Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Monday said that former national security adviser John Bolton’s reported account of President Trump tying Ukraine military aid to investigations into Democrats would not constitute an impeachable offense. “If any president had done what the [New York] Times reported about the content of the Bolton manuscript, that would not constitute an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said during lengthy remarks from the Senate floor Monday night. Dershowitz noted, “Let me repeat: Nothing in the Bolton revelations, even if true, would rise to the level of an abuse of power or an impeachable offense. That is clear from the history. That Is clear from the language of the Constitution.” He added, “You cannot turn conduct that is not impeachable into impeachable conduct simply by using words like ‘quid pro quo’ and ‘personal benefit.'” https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1221986300418494464 Another: https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1221981507771867136 Another: https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1221982718885613569 Check this out… https://twitter.com/frankthorp/status/1221586534991847425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221586534991847425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/kyledcheney/status/1221601174257905669?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221601174257905669&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/kyledcheney/status/1221606104754421760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221606104754421760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/GillianHTurner/status/1221603898600906752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221603898600906752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/GillianHTurner/status/1221601827336134657?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221601827336134657&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1221568821879885824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221568821879885824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1221570551359123459?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221570551359123459&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1221570893316489216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221570893316489216&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1221571967503011841?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221571967503011841&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1221577835485310982?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221577835485310982&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/axios/status/1221585983277277184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221585983277277184&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/rossgarber/status/1221585379687616517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221585379687616517&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/ByronYork/status/1221601838476267520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221601838476267520&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F01%2F26%2Fdems-want-john-bolton-to-testify-over-alleged-book-revelations-reported-by-the-nyt%2F https://twitter.com/GeoffRBennett/status/1221590809394413568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221590809394413568&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-bolton-reportedly-linking-trump-to-ukraine-in-his-book-dems-pounce-and-demand-his-testimony%2F https://twitter.com/jonathanvswan/status/1221605438627684358?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221605438627684358&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-bolton-reportedly-linking-trump-to-ukraine-in-his-book-dems-pounce-and-demand-his-testimony%2F H/T: Twitchy
