You’d hate to be judged by the worst among you. Journalists note that’s their job. But it’s what happens to cops every day they get told what oppressors they are for ensuring your wallet stays in your pocket.
It’s not that 100 percent of hires are dedicated to the job’s nobleness. Police misconduct is a severe problem when it happens. The question is how often that is. But statistics don’t interest those who think $20 freaking trillion in debt bought us something useful. People who think the next law will perfect us sure are upset about how they’re enforced.
I’ve been judging questionable law enforcement interactions on individual cases, which I thought was the point. But communalism is the cool new thing for people who prefer being lumped in groups. It’s easier to duck responsibility.
Condemning the entirety based on cases people know by name may not be a proper type of sampling. And I thought presumptions were bad. But there’s an exception for those who would lay their lives on the line to protect you from actual evildoers.
The most tolerant among us see cops as seething rednecks who get paid to hunt black men for sport. Forget them accepting that law enforcement officers have a tough job of keeping us from croaking of something other than old age. The task of making murder rare is made harder by law and order foes who harass those on duty. I’m sure they don’t loathe all cops out of a refusal to distinguish between good and bad. It’s as if they don’t care to learn the difference.
Call Colin Kaepernick when someone breaks in. He’s not busy, although he’s slow to react. The king of the ingrates essentially stole a paycheck back when he worked, so it’s unsurprising a de facto felon leads the middle-finger salute to cops. Remember when he played football for a living?
Unlike failing to throw a ball well, police forces are punished for success. The best are despised the better they do, as the lack of crime makes the very people keeping it that way seem unnecessary. Take cops off the streets to prove how needed they are. It happened with Officer Barbrady.
Enjoy trying to debate people who make the assumption that only they believe in decency. You’re against justice and equality, which in my book makes you a not very nice person. The only alternative is that everyone wants universal respect and the methods are in dispute, but that would mean conservatives are humans.
Try to explain how horrifying individual abuses are nonetheless statistically unlikely to someone who thinks America is both just another country and an egregious one. There might not even be widespread oppression in 2017, although that’s just what an oppressor who laughs at South Park would say. The pie chart with the invisible sliver won’t stop smug proclamations about it on social media. People with no rights sure love declaring it.
I don’t want to call cruiser-flipper-offers shortsighted, but I can’t think of another way to proceed. Those who think only cops should have guns don’t think much of the referees, if not thinking much means calling them tools of honky oppression. The profession they hate the most is out to keep the bullets from flying. Meanwhile, convicts are misunderstood victims of a repressive society.
Give power to a government that’s often run by people they despise, according to those who think everything out. There are Republicans everywhere just ready to undo all that awesome free insurance and universal goodwill created by their infinitely kinder counterparts.
Handing that much authority to an entity that could soon be run by those you loathe doesn’t just prove flaws in central planning. Even worse, it shows what it takes to enforce a diktat. Free people don’t like being told what to do, which is the healthy Obamacare lesson its fans won’t take.
You’d think anyone against nightstick barrages would seek policies that didn’t give incredible power to who they claim are shock troopers with badges. Every law carries with it the possibility of having to be enforced lethally. If you’d like us to not comply because there’s nobody to make us buy crummy insurance, we’ll have to live with that.
It takes massive power to compel us benighted schlubs to do what they want. The bossiness is for our own good, so thank those who are better than you. The coercion should be a sign that what they believe isn’t desirable. Instead, they just want us to do as they wish even if it’s a horrid idea. That’s way worse than what any cop would do.
