Today, I Stopped Caring

Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man. I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve. I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted.
I stopped caring today because parents refuse to teach their kids right from wrong and blame us when they are caught breaking the law. I stopped caring today because parents tell their little kids to be good or “the police will take you away” embedding a fear from year one. Moms hate us in their schools because we frighten them and remind them of the evil that lurks in the world.
They would rather we stay unseen, but close by if needed, but readily available to “fix their kid.” I stopped caring today because we work to keep our streets safe from mayhem in the form of reckless, drunk, high, or speeding drivers, only to be hated for it, yet hated even more because we didn’t catch the drunk before he killed someone they may know.
Nevertheless, we are just another tool used by government to generate “revenue.” I stopped caring today because Liberals hate the police as we carry guns, scare kids, and take away their drugs. We always kill innocent people with unjust violence. We are called bullies for using a Taser during a fight, but are condemned further for not first tasing the guy who pulls a gun on us.
And if we do have to shoot, we are asked “why didn’t you just shoot the gun out of their hand?” And when one of us is killed by the countless attacks that do happen (but are rarely reported in the mainstream media) the haters say, “Its just part of the job.” I stopped caring today because Conservatives hate us as we are “the Government.” We try to take away their guns, freedoms, and liberty at every turn.
We represent a “Police State” where “jackbooted badge-wearing thugs” randomly attack innocent people without cause or concern for constitutional rights. We are Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Rodney King all rolled into one lone police officer stopping to help change an old lady’s tire. I stopped caring today as no one wants us around, but instantly demands answers, results, arrests, when a crime takes place.
If a crime isn’t solved within the allocated 60 minutes it takes CSI on television, we are inept, incompetent, or covering something up. If we do get “lucky” it was just that and everyone with a Facebook account can post wonderful comments of how “they” would solve the case and how “we” are not nearly as clever.
I stopped caring today because a video of a cop six states away, from a department that you never heard of, screws up and forgets his oath of honor, thus firing up an internet lynch-mob of cop haters even though 99% of us work twice as hard not to end up in the news and to still be “the good guys.” We are “militarized” because we wear body armor and kevlar helmets when shots are fired or rocks thrown at us and carry scary looking rifles even though everyone knows that they are easier to shoot and are more accurate than a handgun or a shotgun.
I stopped caring today because the culture of today’s instantly connected youth is only there to take and never give back. To never accept responsibility for ones actions, but to blame everyone else instead of themselves. To ask “what is in it for me?” versus “what can I do for you?”
To idolize gangsters, thugs, sexually promiscuous behavior, and criminals over hard work, dedication, and achievement. To argue that getting stoned should be a right, yet getting a job or an education is a hassle. To steal versus earn. To hate versus help. Yes, I stopped caring today. But tomorrow, I will put my uniform back on and I will care again.

2012 over 14,172,384. arrest were made, of those arrest,
* In 2012, 123 blacks were killed by police with a gun
* In 2012, 326 whites were killed by police with a gun
* In 2013, blacks committed 5,375 murders
* In 2013, whites committed 4,396 murders
* Whites are 63% of the population blacks are 13%
Police killings of blacks down 70% in last 50 years
Out of 14,172,364 arrest and Police confrontations in 2012, only 449 criminals were killed in the line of action….There is no epidemic of Police shootings here, there is no racism involved in these shootings that has ever been proven and only fools go around assuming there is….
There are very few unjustified shootings and many of those Law Enforcement Officers are being prosecuted and sentenced, demoted and ran out of Law Enforcement, but the media is not reporting them…
Why? Simply because its not Politically Correct nor expedient for them to do so, nor does it fit their constructed narrative of Police Brutality!
But what has been irrefutably proven time and again are, that there is an out of control Black Criminal Element, or Black Criminal Culture sweeping across this Nation deliberately targeting Whites and White Police Officers….
And in the past six years, we have had Obama, the President of the United States of America alongside of the Department of Justice Eric Holder entertaining the Race Hustlers Albert Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Politically Correct White Media and their Liberal supporters feeding this insanely fabricated Black victimhood narrative further destroying any hopes of racial harmony…
Thus turning those criminal elements of our society against the only protectors we have of our Law Enforcement who themselves have been heroically standing therebetween us and those criminal elements trying to protect us from them…And we are watching the President and the DOJ literally pulling their teeth!
Oprah Winfrey who has gotten filthy rich off of misguided and goaded Whites is also feeding this racial hatred by so delicately stating that she hopes we old White people would just hurry up and die off so as to end Racism’s, that’s Liberalism thinking for you, but that was going to slow for the Criminal Elements of the Black Culture so they just stepped up their knockout games and attacks against us and are knocking us off one at a time…
And now they have adopted necklacing us from their Homeland of Africa as a way to entertainment themselves and the Liberal White Media is refusing to report the rising numbers of Whites being set afire.
Have you not yet heard the Term Fire Cracker?
A Recent FBI Report has clearly shown that Blacks attack Whites 25x more than Whites attack Blacks.
It is imperative that we Support and get behind our Law Enforcement, we absolutely need their protection and their supporting us and our community’s, we cannot allow the many Outstanding Officers in this Nation to be crucified for the very few who do break the law, who do get indicted, who are sentenced to long imprisonments and who are made to answer for their lawlessness and the betrayal of the community’s they swore to protect!
It is suicidal for us as a Nation, for both the Black & White community’s to ignore what’s truly shaping up to be a racial war facilitated by this Presidents racially inflammatory remarks…And yes, there is a designed reason for this?
They truly are taking advantage of a serious crisis, a crisis by the way, that they themselves have created. Wake Up!!!
