BS Cops Put Up With – Bullet points of truth.

  • An “MD” or someone claiming be a health care practitioner who never went to med school that really thinks a weed growing from the ground is somehow medicine and must be smoked to cure an ailment.
  • Nearly 250,000 people ( some say as high as 450,000) die every year from medical malpractice. Less than 0.1% of that number die at the hands of police with the majority of those deaths being lawfully justified. Shall we put body cameras on Doctors and medical staff?
  • Those who support a criminal that murders a law enforcement officer rather than stand up with courage to show these cops who are men and women, Black, Latino, Asian, and White, mothers and fathers, coaches and teachers who happen to have the guts to  wear a badge and give their lives to protect total strangers.
  • Some in the public and political arena really think Criminals who are in the act of committing a crime, hurting innocent civilians or who point a weapon at a cop then run away from a cop really expect nothing will happen to them? Wake up.
  • When the suspect of a crime is being lawfully asked to cooperate and engage in conversation with cops as to why the Police were called on scene and immediately go into hostile mode, shoving a cell phone camera in their faces and escalating the situation. This is a two way street, if the cop is being professional which the majority of time they are, then the public TOO must act professional.
  •  Here’s a thought, How about rather than protest the less than 1% percent of the time when a law enforcement officer does the wrong thing, protest the 20X more senseless killing of kids and innocent adults in our communities by criminals? Can you say Chicago?
  •  Here’s an example of One of the hundreds of instances where cops are being slaughtered/assaulted at an exponential rate more than minorities in this country. A Police Officer about to retire at age 63 and a young mother/ Police Officer who just returned from maternity leave were brave enough to respond to a citizen asking for help in controlling their mentally ill adult son. These two Palm Springs officers were killed over the weekend of Oct 8th 2016, at the front door of a house,  answering that call from a total stranger, and yes a minority family at that. The Police did not ask what race they were or how much money they made, they just showed up to help a family and were murdered for it. Let’s stand up for their bravery.
  • Criticism is always part of the job. But when millionaires, professional athletes and elitists who never put themselves in harm’s way,  suddenly become “champions” for the oppressed is BS. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but not entitled to their own facts. Look at a recent Harvard Study conducted by a very prominent African American professor, Roland Fryer.  His study finds no indication of racial bias associated with Incidents in which Police officers fired their guns. Check out the Article in the Washington Times July 11th, 2016. It’s easy to kneel like a coward rather than stand up and be counted.
  • “Militarizing” our Police.  If society wants their cops to show up at armed hostage sieges at schools, concerts, night clubs, sports venues and other community sites with only a ticket book, a flashlight and good manners, then we should not be using the police.  We must back those who are there to protect us.  With reason and common sense along with a sound policy approved by the public they serve, any and all tools including military equipment should be available to those who are willing to protect us.
  • Some feel the cops need more training. Well, guess what, so too should the public that use the services of the police. Law enforcement men and women are not robots nor should the public expect them to be mind readers. There is a legal standard in our country called ” The Reasonable standard”. Let’s talk about it and use it.
