Baton Rouge: Obama calls for national unity "against the inflamed rhetoric"

The President said that even if it is unknown why a sniper killed three police officers in the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana (South), the latest in a series of incidents involving police officers, as the massacre occurred on 7 July in the Texas City of Dallas, or the deaths of two unarmed black citizens police also in the city of Baton Rouge and in the region of the city of Saint-Paul, State of Minnesota.

"We must say clearly, as a nation, that nothing justifies these attacks against law enforcement officers," said Obama.

The President addressed the Americans when lack little to the National Convention of the Republican party, where the controversial Donald Trump officially should be chosen as a candidate of the conservative formation. Trump has spared no criticism of the way in which the authorities and the President have been managing the attacks against the police officers.

Obama also said, in this sense, which, now that begin big parties ' national conventions, the candidates should focus on a speech that connect the country, instead of causing further divisions.

"We don't need rhetoric inflamed. We don't need accusations without any kind of consideration and made only in order to gain politically or to benefit a political agenda. We have to moderate our words and open our hearts, all of us, "said Obama.

Obama didn't forget to express its full support to the police officers, although some organizations have expressed doubts about the President's support. The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO, by its acronym in English) said, after the massacre of Dallas, who lived a war against the agents and asked for more support for federal policies and authorities "more resources to p rotect cops and civilians."

"The attacks against the police are attacks against us all, and against laws which make possible our society," said the President.

“It is up to all of us to make sure we are part of the solution, and not part of the problem.” â€"POTUS speaks on the attack in Baton Rouge.<p>â€" The White House (WhiteHouse) July 17, 2016

Obama warned that, like I said after the massacre of Dallas, killers like this would not be the last to try to destroy the unity of the Americans and that would be a task of all to prevent such from happening.
