Giuliani: Obama, Democrats Created 'Anti-Police' Environment

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

The Democratic Party and President Barack Obama have "created an anti-police atmosphere," and created a moment that made their opinions known when a group of mothers who lost their children to violence took the party's convention stage, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday.

"All you have to do is talk to one of your local Philadelphia police officers like I did walking in this morning," Giuliani told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Bill Hemmer. "They will tell you this is the worst since the Black Panther movement. I said why? They said that it's clear the president takes their side no matter what's against us."

And in Baltimore, where the prosecuting attorney's office on Wednesday announced no further charges would be brought against police officers in connection with the death of Freddie Gray, Giuliani said the officers deserve an apology.

"Where do those police officers who just got acquitted go to get their reputation back?" said the former mayor. "The president of the United States? Where is he on this? He was harsh in condemning it. I don't see him saying the justice system has worked and they have been found not guilty. They never should have done what they did and left out the widows of police officers who died. It's the police officers who died who prevent thousands and thousands and thousands other blacks from being killed."

Obama has "always been very quick" to exaggerate or overstate issues involving the nation's police and the African-American community, said Giuliani, and there were times he was "completely wrong."

"I'm a lawyer and former prosecutor. I'm embarrassed as a former prosecutor," said Giuliani. "For someone who has been in law enforcement most of my life. I'm very close to the police. Thousands of them will tell you that. They believe that President Obama and the administration and Hillary Clinton is anti-police. And I think they have given every indication that they are."
