I’m mad as hell! This seems to be prevalent theme the past few weeks. It sees to echo throughout cities from coast to coast and around the globe. It resonates within the movement. I’m mad as hell, but why?
What is the origin of this anger? Is it the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers? Is it? Is it really? Is all this anger truly over the loss of his life? Is that the spark that ignited this powder keg we are seeing?
I’m mad as hell! Protests have sparked nationwide violence in the name of, … what or whom? They claim they are anti-violence while in the same breath committing acts of violence. They do this cloaking it as a peaceful protest.
‘PEACEFUL’ DOES NOT REQUIRE THE COPS
A peaceful protest does not involve destruction of property, looting, and assault of others. Some would have you believe that those acts go hand-in-hand with a “peaceful” protest and that is merely a way to express their disapproval. Those people live in a fantasy land.
When these protesters become rioters and commit violent crimes, the media would have you believe that it’s their way of demonstrating. It’s absolutely not!
There is no inherent right to destroy property or hurt one another. There is no birth right or genetic code that gives you the free reign to just hurt people because you believe, or you have been lead to believe, that it’s your right.
HOW DOES BEATING A COP END VIOLENCE?
How does assaulting black officers and civilians quell violence against blacks and minorities? How does any of this lend to healing? Some are taking advantage of the situation and using it to further their own agenda. Is changing the items they see around themselves as representing systemic racism their actual objective? Time will tell.
For three nights in a row I have listened to the NYPD city-wide channel. I have listened to those officers just chasing the radio from call-to-call. Their calls aren’t to quell barking dogs or silence loud music.
No, their calls on those nights were calls of mass lootings, assaults and property destruction, to name a few. These cops were responding to calls of multiple crowds by the thousands who descending upon neighborhoods.
The assholes were leaving a path of destruction in their unapologetic and ‘fuck-you’ wake.
WHAT HAPPENS TO ONE OF US, HAPPENS TO ALL OF US
I have many friends in the NYPD whom I consider my brothers and my family. I was listening to the radio and talking one of them when the call went out, “Two officers shot, Church St. and Flatbush Avenue.” My heart sank as I took note of the large amount of units enroute to that location.
As that call went over the air, my friend texted me the details of what happened. I listened patiently as it progressed. I’m mad as hell! I know I wasn’t the only one who was steamed but I certainly was one of them.
I told my friends I wish I could be there to be by their side and watch their backs.
The new declaration is to “Defund the Police.” Some of these morons are trying to convince you that fewer police officers is beneficial. Let that sink in for a moment: Fewer police to deal with the chaos they create.
That’s a dream come true for the Left and the self-proclaimed victims to systemic police racism.
The incident in Minneapolis was horrific and inexcusable. No good cop would condone what we saw in the video. I believe most of us agree that more sensible tactics should have been employed.
That being said, does anyone really believe that fewer officers will solve the problem? I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have the answers on how to fix it, nationwide. I have an opinion, but it’s not an end-all solution.
I’m mad as hell. Sarge out.
“Above all, it’s about going home at the end of the shift … “
We couldn’t agree more.
