A frustrated police officer sent this in to us. Who’s gonna fight for us? Politics in policing have gone hand in hand for most of its existence, but enough is enough.
I’m sick and tired of emotions, controlling the narrative in policing. All data and facts have consistently debunked the idea of both systemic police misconduct and systemic racism. However, the black lives matter movement and social left has created fear in truth speakers by calling people such things as racist, homophobic, xenophobic, whenever they disagree.
It pains me to watch, because they are making millions of dollars by holding down the very communities they claim to protect. Politicians have been allowing this to happen for too long and it’s time now for somebody just to stand up and simply say: No, You’re wrong. We will do absolutely nothing you request, because we are doing things, the best we can. Evil is ugly!!
An adult molesting a nine-year-old child and then forcing them to masturbate on camera, is ugly. Repeated domestic violence calls we’re significant others are beating strangling and killing victims are ugly. A mother stabbing her 11 year old child 80 times, is ugly. A father being murdered in front of his wife and daughters because he refused to let the suspect rape his children in front of him, is ugly. Police are people breaking into a house in the middle of the night and shooting the home owner, is ugly. Being robbed at gunpoint, is ugly.
A shooting victim who is holding their infant child while they were shot, is ugly. Homicides are ugly.
Listened to victims tell the details of how they were raped is ugly. Business owners being too scared to go outside of their business, because of drug dealers and other violence in high crime areas, is ugly.
When most people see evil and how ugly it is, they choose to record it on their cellphones in hopes of going viral on social media. But police officers choose to confront that evil and evil is ugly!
And that naturally makes police work ugly.
Dead adults and dead children are ugly. Arrestees who have been who have puked or defecated or urinated on themselves, is ugly. Standing with family members and telling them not to retaliate, when they just found out their child was raped, is ugly. Applying first aid to trauma victim, is ugly. Police work, is ugly.
But do you know what’s worse than the ugliness of policing?
The trauma of being raped as a child. The trauma of being robbed burglarized, not feeling safe in your own home. The trauma of being shot. The trauma of going to work. The trauma being a victim to all types of evil in society.
Despite the ugliness of the streets. Community policing is often thought of as pretty. Reading with children having amnesty days for those without standing charges. Coffee with a cop. But real community policing is aggressively fighting the evil that lurks in our society and preys on the weak. Real community policing is getting drugdealers, trigger pullers, robbers,burglars, rapists and all other types of evil off the streets. Unfortunately real community policing is happening less and less, because our departments nationwide are throwing their officers under the bus at the request of delusional citizens.
Evil is ugly! That means fighting evil is ugly.
Those who commit the evil acts, like those listed above are inherently evil. Evil people know that they will be punished and they don’t walk up to a police officer and turn themselves in. Resistance leads to use of force. Use of force, is ugly. Physical fighting in the middle of the street, is ugly. Yes tasing someone, is ugly. OC spray, is ugly. Canine bites are ugly. Chasing armed robbery suspects on foot, is ugly. Vehicle pursuits are ugly. Being shot at, is ugly. Having objects thrown at you, is ugly. Having people yell at you while you’re trying to focus on immediate threat, is ugly.
Knowing you might have to sacrifice your safety but not using force for the safety of the innocent by standards, is ugly.
God forbid using deadly forces, is ugly. Despite the ugliness of the evil they’re fighting, a police officer has a duty to viciously and aggressively hunt down the evil in their neighborhood, because evil is ugly. Police officers volunteer to fight evil. Because no one else will.
Police officers are constantly thinking through each action they take as a situation rapidly unfolds right in front of them. Police officers owe a duty to many people, when they make these rapid decisions. Citizens and others are other officers, their safety, their department policies, the jurisdiction, the statutes, the suspect, constitutiona violations. Do the ugliness of the situation combined with a split-second decision making, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the use of force situations in questio,n will be based on a reasonable officers action with the information that was availableat the time. Not a reasonable civilians action with 20/20 hindsight. Police work is ugly and if you don’t do the job, you’re not trained in the ugliness of it and the case law regarding it, you’ll never understand the decisions being made on the ground.
In fact officers useforce significantly less than theys hould. Simply because they fear the repercussions of public perception and the many self-proclaimed social media warriors. It is way beyond time for police departments nationwide to quit catering to those who are not trained in the ugliness of policing and defend their officers.
Your heroes are not the people who are posting lies to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and are on CNN. Your actual heroes are very literally being killed in the streets fighting evil. Very few people are even aware that 97 police officers have been killed in the line of duty from January 1, 2020 to June 7, 2020.
What was it four police shootings of black Americans? 9
3.5 million interactions with Americans.
97 police officers have been killed.
9 blacks have been killed by police officers.
97 to 9.
In sports, it would be, you know especially with social justice sports, it would be the other side that would be calling for mercy.
The only thing uglier than policing is 20 in 2020 is the blind emotionally charged support of the domestic terrorist group black lives matter by millions of citizens and celebrities and businesses and politicians.
The only in justice in modern society is the lackof a leader willing to stand up and speak the verifiable truth: Police are good!!
Who will be that leader? With urgency! Police officers nationwide.
