@OkSadly if we knew who was the bad apple we could fire them. But reality
is they form a club, and once in, they protect their own.
Re: VIDAR"If police want to be respected; then they need to
start acting more honorably."Absolutely. Peace officers need
to behave better, the ones who don't, need to be fired.
Three cheers and a hoop-de-do to Deseret News. Thank you, law
enforcers. Thanks to all those who give us freedom by enforcing the rules of
civilization and society. We support you and hope you can carry on. Whether
uniformed or not, men or women, local or distant we love you. In
this time of hate and anger toward the enforcement of law, we are depending on
you to keep us safe.
My view of law enforcement is that they should be like the knights of old time.
Knights had a code of honor that they followed. I would like to see this kind
of honor code among our law enforcement. It should be dishonorable for a law
enforcement officer to break the law. Instead we get the blue code which is
that an officer does not report a fellow officer who breaks the law. This is no
different than the gangster code Too often the police have allowed themselves to
become the guard dogs of the wealthy. The police should be protecting the
rights of all citizens. Recently we have seen on the television police pepper
spraying old women, and huka dancers. There are reports of sex molestation,
rape, and stealing prescription drugs from private citizens homes.All one
has to do is search police brutality for video after video of police misconduct.
Police have even tried to pass laws prohibiting videotaping of their behaviors;
because the truth is conflicting with what they report.If police want to
be respected; then they need to start acting more honorably.
As a society, we must show greater love, honor, and respect for law enforcement.
Indeed, a civilized society must do so if it is to survive.Unfortunately, the left wing does not aggree. Left wing entertainers make
movie after movie that potrays law enforcement in a bad light. Criminals are
admired and glorified as heros, while law enforcement is portrayed as
corrupt.In addition, the left wing courts continue to legislate from
the bench a create new rights for criminals and new barriers for the police. As
a result, criminals go free and the public gets victimized.In short,
we must decide what kind of society we want. If we want a safe, prosperous
society, we must give law enforcement everything it needs to protect us.
