It is our duty as peace officers and members of Blacks in Law enforcement of America to continue the fight for freedom, justice, and equality for all citizens. We have always been advocates of law enforcement professionals by establishing continuous training and support for our officers. As black law enforcement professionals, we pledge our time, honor, and talent for the uplifting of our communities.

In keeping with our mission, it is with great pride that Blacks in Law Enforcement of America, a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, will support U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders on his run to be the Democratic Nominee for President of the United States of America.

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, US Senator Sanders is the only candidate that has addressed the institutional and social injustices against black, brown and indigenous Americans as violence’s, including, physical, political, legal, economic and environmental are perpetuated.

As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we believe that Law Enforcements’ purpose is to protect and serve. Our leaders should not try to contain the poor, the economically disadvantaged or to take advantage of those disenfranchised.  We need to have a true voice in the social matters and injustices of today. Senator Sanders has been vocal in the issues of:

  • The need of police forces that reflect the diversity of our communities
  • Increasing civilian oversight of police departments
  • To federally fund and require body cameras for law enforcement officers
  • Establishing a new federal model where police training programs are the focus of every local government
  • Creating a police culture that allows for good officers to report the actions of bad officers without fear of retaliation and allows for a department to follow through on such reports.

We support Senator Sanders because his platform is to pursue national policies that value the people of color and the institution of responsible policing in America.  We are supporting a candidate that has supported the minority community when it wasn’t popular. We are supporting a man who  has a proven history on the front lines in the battle of our civil liberties.

    After much research I have reached the conclusion Bernie is the leader this country needs to move forward! Senator Sanders has all the qualities of a true leader! Bernie is fair, kind, honest, humble, energetic, authentic, intelligent, experienced, and passionate about helping our youth reach success, thus building a stronger and brighter USA for future generations. Bernie’s long record as a public servant can be viewed on you tube. His health care for all plan, according to physicians and top economists, will save the average family approx $5,000 a year. No more high deductibles and insurance premiums! Bernie will increase the min wage to $15 an hour which is long over due! When people are paid fair wages they contribute more to growing the economy then more small businesses spring up keeping prices competitive. Bernie Sanders has received the top congressional award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars in his fight for veterans! He receives no super pack money and will put an end to the legal bribes and scams that go on among billionaires and our public servants today. Our ancestors warned us these money games will destroy our government! Democratic (by the people) socialist (for the people) programs built this country including our roads, utilities, national parks (which saved the buffalo), our US post office, our US military, our public library, social security, etc. Bernie Sanders is Jewish (not a communist) and speaks from his heart. Get involved in this very important election to save the middle class or move toward the middle class. Bernie will save social security for seniors! If possible, go to berniesanders.com and make phone calls, pass out flyers, and contribute $5, $10, $20! Be sure to register and vote which is taking place in many states today! Your vote counts! Bernie currently has 76% of the vote in his home state from democrats, republicans, and Independents! This tells us much about his character! Vote smart! Vote Bernie!

Blacks in Law enforcement will continue to express “ Black” as it refers to people of color that are law enforcement professionals. The emphasis is on the common experience and determination of the people of African, Afro-Caribbean and Asian origin that opposes the effects of the policies and procedures in the history of our Justice System, that are based on racial bias and disproportionality.
