...wear their uniform if they choose to attend Trump rally. They forced them to be on the stage in uniform when Hussein held his rally there..... hmmm

Should it be in the capacity of the city to not allow their law enforcement officers to show support for their president in uniform?

yep.  Their choice.   10th

Do you find it odd that they would push them to be on stage with Obama, but not want them in uniform supporting Trump?

Have to agree w/ the courts on this only;  regrettably.

Weird but that city probably has an anti union policy which is strange for a liberal community. Cops are making a bundle on the red shirts they are selling.  Looks like Trump is gaining more support from law enforcement after this.

Any chance of your personal political stance clouding your ability to think objectively? I mean, it is Minneapolis. I know they are as blue as they come, along with crime ridden as all Dem ran utopias are. But you have no issue with the bias that’s being displayed with this? Would you be as silent if it were reversed where Trump had the support and once Obama comes to town they aren’t allowed to show support in uniform?

As I grew up in the county I live in, police officers were forbidden from expressing political views.  They could vote but they weren't allowed to participate in political rallies in uniform or not.  I was surprised to see this was a story.

Unions support blue, but why is it ok to show support for one political affiliation and not the other? It seems your town had it right from the beginning... or do they? It’s the president of the United States of America we are talking about, not a candidate running for mayor. Should the military not show support for the president of the United States?

There is this thing called the Hatch Act that prohibits public servants from displaying political preference while on duty. This avoids the appearance of favoritism one way or the other.

Obama was a special case, and the Libs loved rubbing the Black President in everyone's face, hoping to root out the racists among us.

Trump doesn't get the same leewayz.

Members of the military are also not allowed to wear a uniform when endorsing a political party.  Being present for official duty, or during an official visit, is not the same as being there voluntarily as a show of personal support.  Officially the uniform belongs to the organization, which is supposed to be politically neutral.

I know they had it right in the seventies and the eighties.  Probably all the way back to the twenties when the department was started.  More recently, I wouldn't be surprised if it's don't ask/don't tell as long as you're on your own time and wearing your own clothing and you don't show up on the news giving an interview at the event with your job title below your name. 

 

I think the military should do the same.
