Badged pants-wetters execute innocent homeowner because they were stupid. And homicidal.
This. Just This. Only This.
I have a great respect for the police I grew up around. That would be damned few of you currently practicing, and it grows fewer and fewer every time one of these incidents crops up. Which, lately, is becoming weekly, if not daily.
If your prime directive is to get home and cash your checks, you're not a police officer, you're just a selfish whore. And should be regarded as exactly such. Stings, don't it?
When you'd rather blow away ten innocent victims than risk one hair on your star-bellied Sneetch @$$hole, you're the f**king problem, not the solution, and I hope you die gut-shot by the side of the road crying for your momma, and I get to watch it on YouTube.
You were sick the day in the academy they covered the job description, and we don't need you. Never did, in fact.
Do your jobs, by the letter and spirit of the law. Start by obeying it. For a vast swath of you with badges, that'll be a novel approach, but give it a shot; it worked for decades before killing your way home to supper on the backs of innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time became SOP.
Truck drivers and oil workers have deadlier occupations, and they don't get to kill anyone who looks at them funny, or makes a sudden movement.
Yes, I want you to be safe, and I recognize from experience and video evidence how quickly things turn pear-shaped on the streets.
You knew the job was tough when you took it. You don't get to cut corners by killing everyone pro-actively because it saves you the trouble of using judgment and reasoning before you go to guns.
If it's too hard to do that, GTFO, and go deliver pizzas. The tips are better, and people seldom curse you out when you knock on their door. As a bonus, it's probably a better IQ fit for many of you.
Be safe, certainly. But not to the point of killing everyone because you were too stupid to wait before applying a couple of pounds of trigger pull to kill an unarmed person too unlucky, too stupid, too drunk, or any combination, to comply with the fourteen 'roided up douchebadges all yelling at him simultaneously over leveled carbines.
BS like this is why they didn't used to let you knuckleheads have rifles.
I'm thinking it's time you were all forced to patrol without any guns at all.
(You pull that Wichita SWATing dumbshittery some places, and the body count tally will be far less one-sided. It's going to be a party-bus crowd. Fair warning: they'll fight dirty, and the red flag will be raised - no quarter given. There won't be any Waco time-outs to gather your wounded either. You might want to try coming up and knocking on the door, to talk like men, and save yourselves a load of embarrassment and bullets in your ass. Just saying. Take your pick.)
That's not all of you, and I'm painting with a wide brush. I know that.
Boo fucking hoo.
You earned every bit of that broad brush, when you failed - ten thousand times - to fire, and refer for immediate prosecution, every silly jackass caught in flagrante on the job, by our cameras and your own.
Qui tacet consentit.
Look it up. You don't just get to be the Blue Crew when you're doing good; when you cover for your thugs, crooks, and morons, you become legally and morally accomplices after the fact, and deserve the same opprobrium they do.
Start delivering their heads on platters metaphorically, or get used to someone else taking the opportunity to volunteer any or all of you to hand them over literally. For no reason, and ten thousand reasons, with illustrative videos to back them up, going back decades, in every city, town, and county.
People are turning, are you're the rabid dogs in this morality play.
Rabid dogs get put down.
So either clean up your collective act, quit, or settle your affairs.
Note that there is no other choice there.
Right now it's "a few bad apples" (See what I did there?) who'll be hunting you, along with every actual crook you meet like it's always been.
But every time we see another bunch of sub-literate prehensile-tailed douchebadges blow away another unarmed guy for not sufficiently respecting your authoritay, the more people start figuring that could, and someday will, be they themselves.
And the minute the tipping point is reached, they're going to start fragging you as a threat to their life and livelihood, on sight, simply for existing.
And no one else is going to give a damn whether you were guilty or innocent anymore.
Just like most of you seem to feel about most of us, time after time after time.
Funny how what goes around, comes around. But when you're the next platter's serving, you probably won't be laughing.
Everyone else will be, though.
Tell me how much fun that day will be, and ponder that we can trade you one for one, and run out of all of you centuries before we run out of all of us.
The sooner y'all start turning this around, and re-earning the community's respect, the shorter the time until you won't have to worry about catching a round in the back while you're eating a sammich.
When you make yourself an outlaw, you are entirely beyond the law's protection, and have no right to expect it to pay you any further consideration.
