In just a few days, Philadelphia will host the Democratic National Convention as well as several protests.
“As for the Black Lives Matter movement,” McNesby stated. “My thought is the Black Lives Matter movement is an absolute disgrace. There’s ways to protest, there’s ways to do things, to get your message across in a respectful way. The way they treat officers on the street…It’s a small group of people and most of them aren’t even from the Philadelphia area. They are a terrorist group as far as I’m concerned and they need to be dealt with strongly. You want to protest, protest against whoever you wish but make sure you do it legally and obtain the permits like everyone else has to and make sure you abide by the law.”
McNesby also revealed that he’ll be part of the group that decides which presidential candidate will get the national FOP’s endorsement.
“I’ve been appointed by the national FOP as part of the endorsement committee, a three man committee, to interview both Trump and Clinton for the endorsement,” he explained. “We’re waiting for a response. We sent a questionnaire out to both camps. We’re waiting for a response. We’re waiting for an interview and then we’ll recommend our pick to the national board of trustees.”
