An anti-police activist group calling itself “Disarm NYPD” wants to strip officers of their firearms and ban police from certain neighborhoods. Funny how this group made no such request of the armed thugs who rob, terrorize, and kill innocent citizens on a daily basis; typically black victims. Now imagine if the local news told everyone where you lived in NYC and that you were a completely unarmed police officer with a family of four. Who in the hell would ever agree to, let alone concoct, such utter nonsense? This reeks of yet another idiotic progressive attempt to demonize police, federalize all law enforcement, and give criminals the upper hand in a society that increasingly uses race to break down societal norms and common sense protocols. I don’t give a damn what color you are, if you break the law, prey on the weak, you’re not a victim of anything. Don’t want to get shot? Don’t put yourself in foolish situations! When a cop tells you to do something, DO IT. The reason why law enforcement is stern – has a no bullshit policy – is because they’re trying to protect your life and theirs; to avoid misconstrued actions or dangerous situations. There’s a time to fight, stand up for your rights, and it’s in a court of law.
In the meantime, activists and the media need to stop posterizing extreme cases of excessive police force as if they’re part of a grand, racial conspiracy consuming America. If you’re going to pick and choose which stories to report, disregarding hate crimes against white citizens or ignoring the mistakes of minority officers, then you’re equally guilty of inciting animosity, violence, and should be charged accordingly. The truth is ALL LIVES matter. There are good cops and bad cops, just like those ordinary people living in your communities or even in your own homes. But we’re not, nor should we ever be, judge and jury. Making blanket assumptions rather than holding individuals accountable for their actions is a hallmark of ignorance, or better yet, a staple of progressivism. The madness ends when we start thinking again. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King…education not escalation!
