Respect is earned, never owed, and being a cop is no more dangerous than it is being an ordinary citizen and driving to work. So say the statistics — including for NYPD, where the last fatality on-duty was in 2011.
Further, nobody deserves “gratitude” for doing their (well-paid) job. That’s what the paycheck is for.
We’ll get to “protect and serve” in a minute.
Next up there was a clownface (one of the previous NYC police chiefs) who chimed in with the statement that Garner was breaking the law and that’s why he died.
So if you pass a law that I cannot fart in public, and I do, I’m fair game to be murdered by your feral hogs, ex-chief?
The stupid doesn’t stop there either. No, it gets even better in this specific instance.
Thanks to Woody for the link.
