It’s Time to Stop Saying – “But Cops Have a Dangerous Job”

from Liberty Blitzkrieg:

Earlier today, I mentioned that I couldn’t muster the energy to write more words about the police murder of Philando Castile. Things have changed.

As is often the case, it was a series of tweets I composed that provided the inspiration for this piece. One tweet in particular really set things off:

I wasn’t expecting the enormous reaction this tweet generated, but I was happy to see that it really connected with so many people who had never heard of me and never read my stuff before. I continued with my tweet storm until most of my angst was out, and then realized I needed to put these thoughts into a post. So let’s start with the title of this post.

One of the tiresome things I often hear immediately after one of these inhumane police executions is that “cops have a dangerous job.” So what’s your point?

I grew up with the understanding that the role of a police officer was to “Protect and Serve,” a motto which has been used by the Los Angeles police department since 1955, and has since been adopted by police across the country. So let’s think about what that means: Protect and Serve. The first word implies courage and the second implies sacrifice. As such, we should expect police officers to first and foremost see themselves as selfless guardians of public safety. Ask yourself, do you see cops this way? I don’t.

    I am decidedly NOT an advocate of violence. Jesus said: “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIGHT.” Violence typically begets violence. “Live by the sword – die by the sword.” Having said that, I still believe the individual has the GOD-GIVEN RIGHT, to protect himself, or herself. PREPAREDNESS FOR SELF-DEFENSE (GUN-OWNERSHIP) IS A GOD-GIVEN RIGHT. It’s not a “privilege” granted by some governmental bureaucrat. And, if a COP threatens you (and you’ve done NOTHING wrong) and actually threatens YOUR LIFE ~ then, as far as I’m concerned ~ you have the GOD-GIVEN RIGHT, to protect yourself from that cop, up to, and including KILLING THAT COP! Period.

    WE THE PEOPLE DO need to stop apologizing about police brutality and their acts of murder committed on our fellow citizens, just because “they have a tough job to do”.
    They should’ve been aware of the dangers of the job to begin with. The dangerous nature of the job of being a cop, doesn’t grant them the right to kill someone just because they are little weenies that felt “threatened”, and decided to shoot first to kill, and then not have to ask any questions later.

    There are NO DOUBT, A LOT of GOOD COPS out there across America. There are also A GOOD NUMBER OF CRIMINALS (WITH A BADGE) OUT THERE, WHO THINK THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT, BECAUSE THEY HAVE THAT BADGE.

    IF those bad cops are ELIMINATED from the police force, from time to time, if you catch my drift, then maybe that sends a much needed message to ALL cops. Either you serve and protect WE THE PEOPLE ~ or you put your life at risk just by walking out your front door.
