Even better, the chief says he would be against police officers holding a protest to support Darren Wilson.
A California police chief is defending his decision to join a protest against police brutality while in uniform (a move that earned him condemnation from a police union). Richmond Police Chief Chris Magnus said, “I would do it again. I would like to be a little more prepared for, perhaps, the fallout.”
Magnus had held up a sign reading “#BlackLivesMatter.” He said he thought that to be pretty innocuous, since “the idea that black lives matter is something that I think we all should be able to agree on.”[…]
When asked if he would be okay with officers showing support for Officer Darren Wilson, Magnus insisted that would be wrong because his gesture was about building bridges; the other would be about tearing them down.
