Rick Snider is the President of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #86. He was in Washington today to hear the President speak about National Police Week. One of the unexpected moments of Trump’s speech was the mention of Lt. Aaron Allen, who was killed in the line of duty in Southport last year.
Aaron Allen’s wife was in attendance. Rick spoke to her and relayed her response to the President’s remarks.
“She was so moved to hear the President speak of her husband and what he’s doing for our community. Those comments from the President are something that her and her children will have for the rest of their lives… They were very surprised, but in a positive way.”
Rick also touched on Mayor Hogsett's remarks on the merit board ruling for the officers involved in the Aaron Bailey shooting.
“His immediate reactions were confusing and confounding because it went against everything he has said before."
