Yeah, I'm pretty sure the OPs premise that he sees Trump bumper stickers on police cars is bumpkus.

I'm having to dig up old knowledge, but even at campaign events..... you can't wear military uniforms.... State and C&C can't campaign during work hours (that would include bumper stickers)... there are all kinds of laws against this stuff.

Itís a vote to preserve the funding and military equipment they currently get free.

War on drugs and driving laws have made policing a billion dollar business. Add in jails and prison systems and the justice branch is rolling in the money. No one wants to give all that tax money up.

1. MOST municipalities do NOT allow political bumper stickers

2. There are MORE cops in cities and urban ares then the rest of the country and MOST are run by dems and are PUBLIC UNION members.

3. Unions "donate" about 90% to DEM politicians.

I think your premise has a LOT of holes in it.
Some municipalities DO allow political bumper stickers.

You look at some firehouses post-9/11 there was a lot of Bush-Cheney '04/McCain-Palin '08 signs. Come on.

Why?
First, most every police department I know of or has more than 25 sworn officers, would not allow political bumper stickers of any type on any city, county or State owned vehicles. Btw, I use to live in New Jersey, Hudson County area, and never saw any political stickers on any police cruisers.

As for your question, it's the same reason why most teachers tend to vote for democrats than republicans... Not a shocker since most teachers view the world different than how a police officer would.

Remember this, we have police officers and other types of law enforcement officers to deal with the problems average people don't want to deal with.

Now if somebody feels that this is a serious issue and is a democrat or identify with that party, please feel free to join a local police department and make a difference in your community.

I can actually understand this. I know many police officers and have been in relationships with people in enforcement. You see first hand how the law is applied differently to different people based on politics. Sometimes they’re told not to enforce laws that they have sworn to uphold, based on politics. And it normally is liberal politics. They’re made to be scapegoats for political purposes. And yes, it is coming from one particular party. So I actually do get it, even though I am moderate-left in most things. I can see how someone who has to put up with that on a daily basis would have a low opinion about liberals, because their work colors the way they view the world.
