I BACK MY LEO 110%, I will not change my position on that, as much as it is not the LEOs place to be judge, jury and executioner it is not the
civilian publics place to decide if the officer acted correctly. There is IA and a Grand Jury for that. Take your cop hate and beat it, we are all
stocked up on agitators lately.
So from those statements, I take it that you know on a personal level, each and every cop in your town/county and can vouch for each one being an
honest, upright person, free of drugs, and with no control issues---just a pack of grown-up Eagle Scouts who want to serve and protect. If that is
the case, I'm happy for you and your town/county. They've apparently done a fine job of picking LEOs. However, not all jurisdictions are so lucky.
Some hire based on personal relations or obligations and things don't always work out the way they should.
Just as there are crooked lawyers, doctors, preachers and every other profession, there are bad, crooked cops and turning away from looking at and for
those people is the very thing that got us to this situation today. I'm sorry that you and the other RAH, RAH THE COPS people can't understand that.
This is not a new issue for a lot of us. We've watched the changes in law enforcement and the slide into the chaos we see today because those who
knew who the bad ones were stayed silent and the bad ones have been protected rather than punished and banned from law enforcement. If you don't
understand the difference between hating cops and being willing to criticize when we see bad behavior, you will eventually become their victim---no
matter how much you submit. But then, you really don't have to worry about that if your police are all grown-up Eagle Scouts.
Nobody has the right to go out and indiscriminately shoot people. I've said it time and time again. Those cops who were shot in Dallas, Baton Rouge,
or anywhere else did not deserve to die because LEO administrators can't or won't get rid of the roided-up, rouge ones in their midst. Violence is
never the solution. A beer summit is never the solution. A conversation about race is never the solution. The solution is to get rid of the rotten
apples that are stinking up the entire force so these shootings of unarmed people stop.
I would kindly ask you to stop with the "cop-hater" name calling of people who are awake and aware enough to know that there are bad guys out there
who cause more harm than good---and are brave enough to say it instead of wearing some sort of rose colored glasses that prevent you from seeing what
should be as plain as day. The small percentage of bad cops and lazy administrators are just as bad as the small percentage of these protesters who
are looking for violence and encouraging others to violence.
