BJ'S BLOG 02/09/16 "Disrespecting Cops"

February 9, 2016

 
So, here’s a thing:
 
I have some Facebook friends who really have NO love for the police, and I thought I’d take a second to speak on that. There’s a meme going around that says we should stop applauding cops for doing their jobs without hurting anyone, making the comparison to a barista giving you coffee without burning you.
 
Yes, we know that there are bad cops in the world, but that’s because there are simply bad PEOPLE in the world, and some of them have weaseled their way into having the job of being a cop. The fact of the matter is this: there are more good cops than bad in the world, and those good cops keep us safe. If you’re not out there doing the job, maybe you should keep your comments to yourself…because you don’t know what it’s like to take on that responsibility.
 
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m going to keep on applauding the men and women who protect us every day. Your thoughts, as always, are welcome…
