RALEIGH, NC - The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) had their State Convention this past weekend, where delegates took action to make a public statement against Attorney General Roy Cooper, and then endorsed Governor Pat McCrory. WCCB reported on the issue stating, "The delegates walked out on Roy Cooper [...] The FOP is now endorsing incumbent Pat McCrory."

"That fact that law enforcement officers walked out on Roy Cooper and endorsed Pat McCrory for governor is a major indictment of Cooper's 16-year record as the state's top cop and chief law enforcement officer, which has been weak, ineffective and sparse of real accomplishment. This walkout shows larger unrest for Roy Cooper among the law enforcement community across the state, which has been unhappy with his handling of scandals at the State Bureau of Investigation, failure to fix persistent backlogs at the state crime lab and his refusal to do his job to defend the law even if he personally disagrees with it."
