MIDDLETOWN PBA CALLS ON COMMITTEE CANDIDATE SAGER TO APOLOGIZE FOR CALLING POLICE “CRIMINALS”
MIDDLETOWN – Middletown PBA Local 124 President, Adam Colfer, today called on Township Committee candidate Jeana Sager to immediately apologize for her public statement that “a lot of police are criminals.”
“Township Committee candidate Jeana Sager’s comments are completely unacceptable,” said Adam Colfer. “All across the country members of law enforcement are continuing to face the real threat of physical violence, so the last thing we would expect is to be branded ‘criminals’ by someone who wants to serve in elected office. Candidate Sager should apologize immediately to the Middletown Police Department, and to law enforcement everywhere, for her hateful rhetoric against the very people who have chosen to take on the responsibility of protecting our neighborhoods.”
Sager’s remark can be heard at the 4:36 mark in the following video, where she says, “What constitutes a criminal? Because to me a lot of police are criminals”.
