Cops taking a stand against New Jersey Attorney General (Opinion)
For the past couple of years, I’ve been calling out the New Jersey Attorney General for being a “Fake Cop.” From the endless lawsuits against the Trump Administration to the release of accused violent criminals from jail, Gurbir Grewal has implemented policies that endanger public safety and the lives and livelihood of our men and women in Blue.
In another attack on law enforcement to further the outrageously false narrative of "systemic racism" and a lack of transparency, the AG finally went too far. My friends in the NJ State Trooper unions have had enough. The State Troopers Fraternal Association of NJ filed a lawsuit naming the AG and the superintendent of the NJSP. The goal is to block the pandering, unnecessary and potentially dangerous policy of releasing to the public the names of cops who have had any disciplinary action taken against them in the past 20 years.
The cops' unions across the state have all signed an open letter opposing the policy, and now the lawsuit put some teeth behind the statement.
I caught up with Rob Nixon, the VP for Legislative Affairs for the NJSPBA. He joined me on our podcast #SpeakingCops: Back the Blue to discuss the initiatives the union is taking to protect members and change the anti-cop narrative so prevalent in the main stream media.
