Enough is Enough.

I understand the Black Lives Matter movement to a point. The last I knew, all lives matter. It doesn’t go by race, color, religion or anything else just that all lives matter.

When you say defund the police, who do you call when you are being robbed, beaten, raped, or any other situation that needs immediate attention?

You want the police out of the schools. It wasn’t that long ago that you were demanding police in every school to protect our children. Now I guess your children’s safety is not important.

When your peaceful protests to make a statement and draw attention to your cause turn into riots, burning and looting, how does that help your cause? The only thing it does for me is make me angry. When someone is being engaged by the police for whatever reason, why is it okay for them to use force against the police but when the police need to use force to control a situation it’s an outrage and someone must be charged with a crime?

I’m sure by now you can tell that I am is support of law enforcement. I don’t know any law enforcement officer that while they are getting ready for their shift says I think I will kill someone today, or I think I will beat someone today.

There are bad cops just like there are bad doctors, mechanics, contractors, cashiers, or any other profession.
