So I was wondering,
Where did all the bad cops in the US come from?
Everyone who is not a cop will generate the same knee jerk reaction when talking about cops. There are absurd extremes when people will even HATE them
just for what they do for a living.
I have to ask, where do you think they all came from? Its not like this is true for all police in every country. Its not like this is true for every
generation of American police. So what changed? Ever ask yourself that? HONESTLY?
Can I tell you something you wont like? WE MADE THEM. They come from our population. We arent breeding them in tanks somewhere. They are born and
RAISED in our society. We changed and as a result they did.
Have you ever met someone who bitches about cities generating revenue when they get a ticket, but not about if the ticket is technically their fault
or not. If a justification comes up in their argument as for why they dont deserve it based on common sense but not on whether or not they deserved it
outright according to the law or not then take notice of one thing: Cant the same argument be bade from behind a badge? Yeah technically I cant search
you illegally, but logically I am justified in doing so....It can, it does happen. You use the same justifications no matter what you do.
Have you noticed how people talk about cops? If you replace the word "cops" from what they say with a race or faith, is not the same sort of
dehumanizing arguments that were made against every discriminated group ever?
Next time you mindlessly follow the leader talking mess about cops, remember that you do the same things as them. These men and women come from your
communities, Your families, Your groups. YOU made them. Maybe if you want them to change, YOU have to change too.
If the US deserves better police like many (myself included) believe then maybe we should consider that we have to become a better country for that to
If the back handed government wanted to exact more control, how could they if the police were integral and well adjusted parts of their communities?
What happens in places where sheriffs and such are loved and respected members of their communities? They defy the Government and cause sensational
headlines by refusing gun regulations, or getting into hot water defying the president because thats what their communities want. Coincidence?
If you wanted to gain more control over a population like that of law enforcement wouldnt you need to isolate them first? Create a common enemy? How
have we NOT done that for them already? You invite cops to your BBQs? Yeah? You try to talk to them like anyone else when they are off duty? You hang
out with them and make them feel welcome? Sure. No, this higher ideal crap comes up all the time. They are almost paying a price for wearing a
uniform. Like a crime has been committed by them just for wanting to become cops. How about fairness? That too much to ask?
SO I will leave it at that.
Flame on my entitled, arrogant, deceitful, abusive, manipulative, and impune country. Flame on.
Tell me how you dont have an ounce of blame. Tell me how its not your responsibility. Tell me how cops are a special kind of evil or wrong. Tell me
how they arent human while you do it. Tell me how you deserve things without anything being required from you.
