    Just a little too LATE…Mr. President…those OFFICERS would be alive today, had you showed some LEADERSHIP.

    Their BLOOD is on your HANDS…you should have spoke up earlier about the POLICE SHOOTINGS.

    The cat is out the bag…

    Nobody cares about a DAMN Speech.

      Leadership my ass! He can’t police the entire country. That is up to each individual jurisdictuon,and you know that. Perhaps if the racial profile and inconsistencils in tactics used with people were not so prolific, maybe the officer’s wold be alive today. I am so sick of this Bullshit code word, leadership. How about law enforcement take some responsibility for their actions. They are not above the law and should be held accountable also. Citizens of all races are fed up with their superior, holier than though attitudes. I have watched the actions of many cops and how their responses and tone escalates a normal routine encounter that ends tragically.

        Leadership starts at the TOP and goes DOWN !!!

        Dumb ASS !!!

        When you are silent at the top, you condone the actions of your subordinates. THEREFORE, what happened to those COPS are on the LEADERS/President.

        He spoke up about LGBTQ, illegal immigration, and no word on BLACK ISSUES…

        Sorry but I refuse to accept a SPEECH after the fact as Leadership.
