I dont "inform" myself by youtube videos. LOL.....try again.
Having violence brought against them IS whether club, chain, gun or vehicle...just as it is with a soldier.
WAR is not akin to law enforcement. Where on earth did you get that load of BS from? SO you see police officers in the same dehumanising light as
soldiers....I see. Interesting. Says allot about you.
So police that are CODE ENFORCERS are the same as soldiers who are sent to KILL THE ENEMY of their country? No. You cant be that blind. SO I will just
assume you are being facetious to push your little narrow mindset that they are not people as a soldier is not a person to you.... lame.
Not in England and many other places they don't.
Good for them. If the US was as small as that little island with as small of a population as it, and with a less violent breed of criminals, we
wouldnt either. Want a medal or something? How is that even relevant. They do respond with guns though, WHEN DEALING WITH GUNS....or do they just run
to get shot one after another once a gun is drawn and fired on a peace officer...?
We have no need of shotguns or weapons in our liquor stores.
Again...good for you. Try that in NYC in the middle of various low income neighborhoods with a revolving door to prison. My shoes, dont tell me how
Our banks don't need that either.
They are blessed then. Good thing this didnt happen there or your argument might make some sense and be relevant to this subject...
You honestly believe that "risk" ISN'T the actual job? That is a dreadful mistake.
No. They arent in fact paid to die. They arent paid to kill so why would they EXPECT to die? They are paid for CODE ENFORCEMENT. No where does it say
that they MUST draw their gun or that they MUST find a gun wielding criminal to validate their pay.
If they are worried about leaving behind loved ones then perhaps a desk job in law enforcement might suit them better. Aside from that when you
grab the bull by the tail...sometimes you get the horns.
Getting killed or injured is just the reality of the profession and those who think contrary will find they are sorely mistaken. With the current
social climate, they are GOING to get shot at a whole lot more, you can count on that.
You want to believe they serve a different purpose...that's your right.
You want to call them "heroes"...go right ahead.
You want to imply "I am glad they are dead" or "They deserve it"...you're overreacting.
Well you are entitled to keep your narrow little view of a fellow human being. You are entitled to your opinion that their loss of life is expected
and thus not a tragedy.
Thats on you bub.
I will continue to see them as HUMANS like the rest of us. I will be sorrowful of their loss as I would if you get seriously hurt one
The whole issue I had was with you DEHUMANISING them, and you know that. They are people just like us, and in this case they are MY PEOPLE. My
countrymen and not just that. People who know the risk of their profession, BUT regardless put on a uniform (BULLSEYE) and go out to serve the vast
majority of us without any ulterior motives beyond fulfilling their inner calling of public service.
Get to know a cop. They arent figments of your imagination from "cyborg drone comic book land"....
They are people. That is undeniable.
