The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is calling on White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to apologize for mocking Americans’ concerns over the rise in violent crime in many of the nation’s Democrat-controlled cities.
During an interview, Psaki dismissed Fox News’ coverage of the crime wave and Democrats’ soft stance on criminal justice.
