WHDH: A Reading selectman is apologizing for comments he made about police officers at a recent board meeting that caused some tense moments. Officers got up and walked out of the meeting Tuesday night after Andrew Friedman said he felt intimidated by them and that feared for his safety should he choose the wrong candidate for the office of Chief of Police.
“I’m feeling pretty intimated by the police officers in this crowd. You laugh at that, you think it’s funny but I have to live in this town and all of you drive around with guns,” he said to the crowd at the meeting.
One day later, Friedman said, “I deeply regret my statement and recognize it was wrong. It was one of those comments, made in the heat of the moment, that I wish I could take back. In addition to the members of the Reading Police Department, I also wish to apologize to the residents of Reading.”
I don’t know what’s worse – what he said about the cops, or his epic fail at a lead-in by asking the chick to turn around so he could see her backside. He literally told a woman to turn around so he could look at her ass and thought that it would be a good segue to a one liner about being thrown under a truck. What a fucking douchebag.
I thought I’d search for this guy and find a whole bunch of Occupy Democrats Facebook memes on his page, but he appears to have no presence on there or on Twitter. A search of his name yields a bunch of really boring results with articles that will literally put you to sleep about how he voted on the town’s health agent, or something. Basically there were no signs that this guy was some cop hating uber SJW, although his hatred for both guns and cops, while simultaneously attempting to white knight for the chick whose ass he attempted to look at, would suggest that he is. So I guess the only thing the Internet will ever know about this toolbag is that he’s the queef who whined that the people in uniform who carry guns in order to protect his family and personal property, secretly cause him to soil himself.
