Who protects the defenseless when the nation's police officers go on strike? The current climate in the law enforcement community is dismal. With the advent of the black lives matter “movement”, police officers must constantly remind themselves why they took this job. Why do we sacrifice so much for people who care so little.
It’s amazing that only fifteen years after 9/11 cops went from heroes to criminals.
The purpose of this concise ebook is to offer a touch of sanity. My intention is not to debate the legitimacy of black lives matter or any other group that claims civil rights violations. I’ll leave that debate to the pundits who love to hear themselves talk. The following is an editorial. It includes theory, opinion and a brief history as seen through the eyes of a full time law enforcement officer. One that is disgusted that many people in society does not recognize how fragile the thin blue line really is.
I felt it necessary to include in the "anti-police" discussion facts that the main stream media will not address. This ebook is in no way advocating that police officers should walk off the job, or even have any legal right to strike. My purpose is to put into perspective the totality of the situation and not only what the mainstream media wants the public to hear.
The night before I started this project I watched the local news where a black woman (and black lives matter protester) stated her fear of the police was keeping her awake at night. She said what concerned her was that she didn’t know whether a family member of hers would be killed tonight at the hands of police. Huh? (yeah, I’ll let that sink in for a minute). Society burdens police with protect strangers for a paltry paycheck and now they need to worry about her feelings? Let me tell you something, I’m gonna sleep just fine at night knowing that her greatest concern in life is not only improbable but highly unlikely. I assure you she has a better chance of getting struck by lightning while running to the store with her winning lottery ticket than a family member being hurt by the police. In fact, the likelihood of her family coming in contact with the police are nil, and most likely that brief interaction is because he held the door for her at Dunkin’ Donuts. We now need to be so Goddamn concerned with your feelings, how about ours? When are our feelings considered? We get spit at, kicked, yelled at everyday for something as simple as writing a parking ticket, and nobody cares. Now, criminals all over the country target with aspirations to kill us.
