I stopped caring today

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.

So sad that it has come this this. I fear for our nation's future.

Boo. Hoo. The actions of bad cops, and the inaction of good cops and prosecutors have brought us to this state of affairs. People are wary of the cops because there is no abuse that they won't justify, no horror that a union rep won't spin. Demanding accountability for bad cops is spun as cop hating, so nothing changes.

The baseball players union eventually realized that the knee-jerk wagon circling on PED's was actually working against them. The majority of clean players were paying the price for the "few bad apples." Things are going to get worse between the citizenry and cops if they don't have the same realization and turn out the bad actors.

It seems to me that one emotionally manipulative anecdote deserves another.
