Watch this video and tell me police officers are not targets.
Watch this video and afterward, explain how you truly think police officers are the problem in society.
Watch this video and tell me officers act on fake fear, despite having encountered people in cars just like this and lived to tell about it.
After watching this video, realize this, that officer didn’t know what was next to him, just like officers don’t know who they’re dealing with on a call, a traffic stop, or simply walking to get lunch.
After watching this video, realize if that officer pulled that car over, you’d likely read about an officer involved shooting, or worse an officer killed.
Who is to blame for this? The officer? Or the thug with a gun?
Remember, had there been a shooting, the news media would be quick to post photos of the kids holding those pistols, wearing church clothes, being hugged by their Moms.
Mom would tell the country via the news media her son wasn’t, “A bad kid, he was a good little boy.”
Meanwhile, the police officer can’t speak to the media.
On social media, the officer is made out to be a racist, blood thirsty killer, who manufactured fear, so they could shoot another innocent person.
This will simply further the hate toward law enforcement, making the target on their back bigger. A vicious cycle, that likely won’t be broken, due to society choosing the false narrative over the truth.
It makes no sense.
Yet this seems to be the narrative that is winning:
Police are bad.
Gang members are misunderstood.
Gun laws keep “bad people” from having guns.
The police need to step up and do more, without hurting anyone.
Impossible. Irrational. Irresponsible.
Fight the false narrative with truth.
