• Largest U.S. Police Union Says Congress Violating Trump’s Right to Due Process

    Surge Summary: The Fraternal Order of Police, in a released statement, charges Congress is violating the due process rights of the President as they attempt a coup by using impeachment to remove him from office.

    This week’s big news story should have been the successful covert action that ended the violent and dictatorial leadership of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS].

    The Fraternal Order of Police says Congress is violating “one of the most basic rights afford to American citizens” as they attempt a coup by using impeachment to remove President Trump.

    If you’re a sane American you can clearly see that Democrats are trying to railroad President Trump.

    They know they can’t beat Trump in 2020, so they’re trying to take him out another way.

    You don’t even need to be a “Trump supporter” to recognize the impeachment sham that’s taking place in Washington D.C.

    It’s so blatantly clear, even the country’s largest police union can see it and is speaking out.

    The Fraternal Order of Police says Congress is violating “one of the most basic rights afforded to American citizens” as they attempt a coup by using impeachment to remove President Trump.

    Patrick Yoes, the president of the police union, said in a statement, “due process does not protect the guilty; it is the means by which we guarantee the most fundamental aspect of our nation’s justice system: innocent until proven guilty.”

    “You cannot have justice without due process,” Yoes went on to say. The union exists, in part, “to defend these rights … for all citizens at every level, from the indigent living on the street to the President living in the White House,” he said.

    The Fraternal Order of Police published the letter chastising Congress for infringing on President Trump’s right to their Twitter account.

    The official who has helped other police groups, FOP National Vice President Joe Gamaldi was born and raised on Long Island, NY. Following high school he attended the University of Hartford, where he earned a degree in Criminal Justice, with minors in Political Science and Sociology. After graduation, Officer Gamaldi was hired by the NYPD in 2005 where he worked as an officer for approximately three years. He then transferred to the Houston Police Department in 2008 and graduated from Class #197.

    Shortly after graduation from the academy, he completed his Master’s Degree from Long Island University in Homeland Security Management. Officer Gamaldi then went on to serve as a Board Member of the Houston Police Officers’ Union (HPOU) before being elected the Second Vice President, serving in that capacity for five years before being elected President of the Houston Police Officers’ Union.

    Officer Gamaldi was elected National Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Police in August of 2019 in New Orleans.

    Within FOP Lodge 110 Officer Gamaldi is the chairman of the Labor Relations Committee and the Ways and Means Committee. He has served on the bargaining team for several contract negotiations and served as lead negotiator for the most recent negotiations.

    He also coordinates the Safe Ride Home program, founded the Houston Officers Peer Assistance (HOPA)—a stand-alone non-profit dedicated to providing per assistance to police officers, assisted in the creation of the HPOU mobile app and assists in running the social media platforms for the Lodge.
