The Seattle Police Department’s officers have been through so much complete and utter BULLSHIT over the past 10 weeks of VIOLENT, DESTRUCTIVE, BRUTAL ‘peaceful protests,’ as the mainstream media prefers to address them.
Just one of many Democrat ran cities that refuse to let their police do their job as it goes up in flames. Just another POS mayor who aims to defund the police, has previously made them abandon their (3rd?) precinct to be given to the mob, they have endured being pelted with frozen projectiles, gasoline then fireworks and M80s (to try and catch the LEOs on fire). They have been stripped of nonlethal weapons to defend their city and its people from violent rioters, and been sent out again and again with less and less protection.
These cops are HUMANS. Just like ANYONE with a brain, humans can only take so much before they decide the odds of them not seeing another sunset are greater than the odds of them being able to actual do their job. Those odds are becoming further and further apart as the situation gets deadlier and the resources to successfully police are ripped away.
It is not right to expect them to be some sort of superhuman that can be dehumanized, demoralized, physically attacked EVERY SINGLE DAY for MONTHS, and not be affected. They are being portrayed as evil racists, too untrustworthy to allow around black people like they’re all a bunch of KKK members for putting on the uniform. BLM does about as much to help better black lives as they do to help better cops lives. Their Marxist end goals do more harm than good.
Black lives dont matter to BLM when it’s a black cop. Black lives dont matter to BLM when it is an Atlanta BLM rioter firing into a vehicle and missing the mon, but killing her innocent little girl. Or gangbangers shooting up a family gathering in NYC, and murdering a sweet one year old boy. The one year old hit in the chest by one of at least seven shots fired on him and his mother while he was strapped in his carseat in Chicago.
Do black lives matter to BLM when it is Mekhi James, the three year old boy with his fresh haircut, who was gunned down in his carseat? His daddy who was also hit has to live without his son, tragically stolen from him on Father’s day weekend. Does BLM help them hunt down this poor boy’s murderer? No, but locals are taking to the streets and putting out a reward to find this poor honey’s murderer. “You can only run for so long until somebody gives us that information or gives us a call,” community activist Andrew Holmes said.
“I understand there are so many root causes of violence we have yet to deal with, but we will not sit back and allow you to walk around our communities and shoot our children and our women,” said community activist Ja’Mal Green. Good to know there are people good out there supporting these brokenhearted families in their darkest times. I could not imagine what they’re going through.
I digress. I completely support, understand, and agree with this decision for the SPD to stand up for themselves. All y’all that have a “if they cant handle this then they shouldnt be cops” mentality are so petty and arrogant that it is sickening. They cant stand the heat, so they are getting out of the damn kitchen. Not hard when the kitchen is on fire and pelting you with projectiles nonstop for hours on end, day after day. To be honest, I feel as though this should have been done a long time ago, but they stuck it out until they were basically told to go to their noble job, get out there and be BLM/antifa’s bitch.
Our LEOs are NO ONE’S bitch. I fully support the men and women of law enforcement, and they are doing the best they can with all of the restrictions put on them. It is not right to tremendously increase their risks of dying by taking away their weapons and making them stand down.
