Really? That’s rude. Who do you plan on calling when you are in need of help? These men and women put their lives on the line everyday for little to no thanks and are mistreated and talked poorly of, yet even in death they are put down like that. That’s just sick
Malcolm X said the same thing about John F. Kennedy.
You obviously didn’t get it. All of the anti-police rhetoric, which is now the equivalent of the 1960’s “Off the pigs” is now coming to fruition, and the crazies are acting out what they are hearing their “peers” chant.
The only people I am being rude to are the idiots who see the world as “us” against the police.
Perhaps you have not heard the vile excuse for rhetoric which has been spewed against the police; but spew enough of it and it emboldens the criminal element, which is bold enough on its own without the provocative simplistic nihilism of the anti-government, anti-police contingency which the news has blithely repeated ad nauseam.
Talked poorly of? I could tell you what I think of the knuckle draggers who have attempted to paint the police as Nazi-like executioners, but not in language which is fit for polite society.
Repeat a mantra often enough, and it becomes larger than reality - and then those chickens come home to roost. Which is another way of saying that the marchers who have painted the police in the worst light possible, aided and abetted by the news who does not care what chaos they create or sustain, are the instigators of some of the reactions we are seeing. Not all - the police go up against people who have no compunction over shooting an officer, and they do it on a regular basis. But we have had a spate of hate speech against all police officers, and the retaliation against police started with the execution slayings of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos in late 2014.
If I misunderstood I apologize. Your post consisted of one line spewed in hate towards the police and many other good people. It appeared you were doing that as well.
My dad was an MP and then on the local police from 1962-1986, then state police for 5 years after that. He raised us and foster kids on a tiny pay check in a dangerous world. It’s heartbreaking seeing so many officers die way too soon. They sacrifice so much for us every single day. And so do their families. May God bless them and their families. May St. Michael the Archangel protect them all
One of my son-in-laws is a prison guard, acting sergeant at OSCI; while a corporal he was working at OSP. Dealing, among others, with murderers.
I have personally known several bad police - they ended up in prison for their activities, so I am no starry-eyed naif. On the other hand, I have the utmost respect for those who put on the uniform - military or police.
Yes of course there are some bad. My dad was a detective (worked ID-fingerprint expert). He worked with internal affairs many times to bring them down. To him, crooked cops were worse than most other criminals because they gave a bad name to all of them. But often officers are accused of things that are untrue or disciplined for political reasons.
