Union president Gamaldi directly threatened “activists.”
Houston police chief says union president went ‘over the top’ with comments following shooting

After a shooting injured five Houston police officers earlier this week, Chief Art Acevedo called the union president’s fiery response to the attack “over the top” during a press conference on Thursday.

The shooting, which left four officers shot, another injured, and two suspects dead in a failed drug raid in southeast Houston on Monday, was among the most violent incidents for Houston police in recent history.

Houston police Chief Art Acevedo said Houston Police Union President Joe Gamaldi went “over the top” with his remarks about a shooting that left five officers injured earlier this week.

During a Monday night press conference, Union President Joe Gamaldi made an emotional call to end police shootings. Then he took aim at “the ones out there spreading the rhetoric that police officers are the enemy.”

“Well just know that we’ve all got your number now,” Gamaldi said. “We’re going to be keeping track of all of y’all, and we’re gonna make sure that we hold you accountable every time you stir the pot on our police officers.”

Gamaldi appeared on Fox & Friends just two days later and doubled down on those comment, calling out “activists who have severely made our officers the enemy.”

“They’ve put targets on our backs,” he told the national news outlet.
