ABOVE VIDEO: Florida Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum Signs Anti-Police Pledge.
(FOX NEWS) – The Democratic nominee in Florida’s gubernatorial race, Andrew Gillum, failed to dismiss rumors that he is the “anti-police” candidate after saying that law enforcement officers go “too far” whenever they draw their weapons.
Speaking on the podcast “Pod Save America,” Gillum said he’s not “anti-police” but rather for “police accountability,” The Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Law enforcement society cannot work and, quite frankly, law enforcement cannot do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community,” Gillum said.
“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a Taser,” then they’ve already gone “too far by their very presence,” he added, according to The Beacon.
