If Senator Elizabeth Warren has made one thing very clear, it's that she appears to strongly dislike law enforcement.

Massachusetts police chiefs are blasting Warren for the second time in a year. This time over a re-writing of the shooting death of Michael Brown over five years ago. The unarmed 18-year-old man’s shooting by a police officer was ruled an act of "self-defense" by the U.S. Department of Justice. Witnesses corroborated the the officer’s testimony that Brown was charging at him after already trying to wrestle away his gun.

Last week however, Elizabeth Warren once again went on the offensive, tweeting something very different:

"5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on."

The Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association fired back Warren Tuesday saying her Friday tweet that black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson was "murdered by a white police officer" is "appalling."

"This is about one issue: I don’t want to see another officer unnecessarily murdered. It’s that simple," Yarmouth police Chief Frank G. Frederickson told the Herald. "This hurts, and every chief feels the same way. This is not about politics. This is about standing up for our officers."

President of the chiefs group, Hamilton police Chief Russell Stevens, also chimed in.

"Your reckless tweet will only serve to create hatred towards Police Officers and place them in danger of more assaults and perhaps death," Stevens added in his letter. "Having had two Police Officers murdered in your own state, in the past 18 months, we expect our elected Officials to condemn the murder and assaults of Police Officers. Instead on multiple occasions, you choose to fan the fires of divide for your own political gains. Shame on you!"
