Flint Cop: Cops ‘Tend to Shy Away From’ Criticizing Each Other

Flint Cop: Cops ‘Tend to Shy Away From’ Criticizing Each Other

Brian Willingham, a police officer in Flint, MI, pastor, and author said that it was “fair” to say police officers sometimes care more about protecting each other than the public and that most cops “tend to shy away” from criticizing each other on Saturday’s “Huckabee” on the Fox News Channel.

When asked what he thought of the criticism that police officers are sometimes more interested in protecting their own than the public, he responded “I think it’s fair. There has long been known that there is a thing called the blue wall of silence within police ranks, and that also police officers work in a very political environment in which if you speak out against certain activities regarding the police there could be retribution within the ranks for doing it, and so I think that’s why most people will tend to shy away from it, most police officers will tend to shy away from that type of activity.”
