so all i hear about is police doing bad things and people being horrible and i want to hear about more people doing good things and amazing things
for every story about police officers arresting children for stupid shit i want two where a police officer saved someone’s life or stopped people from doing something stupid
because the police aren’t bad people
zeno’s dad is a police he’s pr cool
my stepdad went and trained to be a police he’s pr cool
a lot of family friends are police they’re pr cool
i just read 19 instances of police arresting kids for stupid shit dotted around different places across the US and across a few years and i felt my paranoia rise
and then i sit and i think yeah this is exactly what the article is trying to do
tell me to prance around be like “fuck da popo” except maybe that just these idiots arresting kids for crumbs and plastic butter knives are idiots and should be the only ones to get in trouble, not all police everywhere
puts head down i’m sorry i stretched your dash
yknow I think this same way a lot
like I always recognize that not all police are good people or even good at their job but but yknow what NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PEOPLE WHO AREN’T RIGHT FOR THEIR JOB/SUCK AT IT. Though its totally balls that the people who are supposed to protect us aren’t guaranteed to be 100% good at it.
but back to the point, I’ve come across a few chances to tell stories about things my dad has done that are so selfless and courageous and great but I usually delete the stories last minute.
Its because everyone has this “fuck tha police” attitude taught to them that I try not to talk about the good side so much- because it usually results in me getting death threats or told how retarded I am. Even worse is the stories getting brushed off like “anyone could do that”.
Sir/ma’am, I would like you to make the decision to pull the trigger on another human being, knowing he has a family, knowing you have a family to raise, and knowing your job is to protect them and the community.
