IACP Survey Responses from Trump and Clinton

A recent survey from the International Association of the Chiefs of Police (IACP) was sent to the Hillary Clinton camp as well as Donald Trump, and they responded.  A review of the survey results from both camps reveals very long-winded responses from the Clinton camp. Clinton’s responses pointed towards a need for reform in law enforcement. Meanwhile, the Trump campaign showed overwhelming support for law enforcement and a greater need to enforce current laws.

When asked of plans for lowering crime, the Trump response was to “ensure the law of the land would be enforced.”  Clinton’s response to the same question was that violent crime was already lowering…but the overall problem with crime could not be fixed without strict gun control.

Clinton promised to crack down on legal gun stores involved in straw purchases and seems to point to this being a major problem. This ignores the fact that many people responsible for violent gun deaths are the same criminals who are burglarizing homes and stealing lawfully purchased firearms. Trump, on the other hand, vehemently stated his continued support for the 2nd Amendment, “I have been clear in my support for the 2nd Amendment.  That will not change.”

In question 10, it was asked of each candidate how would they respond to a police-involved shooting or a use of force which had gained national attention.  Mrs. Clinton commented that her heart broke (Editor’s Note: The writer failed to provide a proper citation indicating that Clinton actually has a heart) for the death of officers recently when they were murdered in Dallas as well as an officer in Baton Rouge; she also stated that killing a police officer is a “terrible crime.”  Several paragraphs later in her response she stated she could not ignore the facts that African-American men are “disproportionately killed and more likely to get stopped and searched.”

Presidential candidate Donald Trump in his response to the same question stated, “National attention does not mean national involvement of the federal government.  If a state or local jurisdiction asks for help from the Department of Justice or other federal agency, then my administration will assist.  Otherwise, local issues should remain local.“
