Rudy Giuliani ties Obama to NYC cop killing

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday said President Obama's rhetoric surrounding recent police killings of unarmed civilians was "propaganda" that fomented anti-police sentiment in the country.

Speaking on Fox News one day after a gunman who posted anti-police messages on social media killed two NYPD officers, Giuliani assailed politicians whom he claimed encouraged protesters and were "separating the community from the police."

"We've had four months of propaganda — starting with the president — that everybody should hate the police," Giuliani said. --Jon Terbush
