The Militia and the Police

Recommended Posts

There are some people on this website who hate the police as such, all of them.

This is a terrible mistake.

 

Right now, the militia movement should reach out to the police. In every place we are, it should be a TOP PRIORITY to talk to as many policemen as you can, say you are from the militia movement, that you understand the pressure they're under, and that the militia movement supports them -- and has former (and maybe active) LEO in it already. And they are very welcome to join. We should have a short leaflet, or business card, with contact details to give them.

 

If we only had some national co ordination ... they should draft up a short leaflet which we could give to individual policement, and mail to police stations. All it would have to say is something like the above: We support you. If there is anything we can do to help, just ask.

 

Okay -- this does NOT mean a blank check. There are rogue cops, unprofessional cops. And there are people at the top who are absolutely enemies of liberty.

 

But the great majority of policemen are decent patriots. If real trouble is coming to America -- and I think it is -- we need to have the police on our side, so that they either support us openly, or remain neutral, or carry out orders only very reluctantly.  (This is 100 times more important with the military, but it's the police who are mainly under attack right now.)

 

The John Birch Society used to have a bumper sticker: IF YOU DON'T LIKE POLICE, THE NEXT TIME YOU'RE IN TROUBLE, CALL A HIPPY.

We ought to make some up, except change 'A HIPPY' to 'ANTI-FA'.  Why doesn't someone do this?

 

In the mean time, if you want to know what many policemen are thinking, read this. 

 

 

America, We Are Leaving

 

This is the hardest thing I have written.

I grew up in a law enforcement family. My father worked his way up to the rank to Captain at the Ft. Smith (AR) Police Department. As I kid I remember going with him on Friday to pick up his check and I was in awe of these super heroes he worked around.

They were funny and fun to be around. Men and women of all races all with the same mission, to make the community safer.

My dad sacrificed a lot and so did my late mother. Whether it was the week long surveillance or wiretap or chasing drug runners across the country, he gave it all for my family and worked plenty of extra details to never let our family be without. Some would call that privilege but where I grew up, it was called hard work.

The kids at school thought it was cool what my dad did and while he sometimes asked me if anyone gave me a hard time, they never did. There was a respect among all….even the kids in shop class.

I didn’t grow up wanting to be a cop but one fateful night, as a freshman in college, that all changed.

I went on a ride along and my life’s journey would never be the same.

After four years of college my dad wanted me at an agency that respected that education so I moved to Tulsa (OK) at 21 years old and never looked back.

I didn’t know anyone and all I knew was what I saw my dad do, work hard and treat people with respect. I saw a lot of other cops working hard as well and doing all they could to keep the community safe.

27 years has passed and if you would have told me the condition of law enforcement today, I would have never believed you.

It’s not that law enforcement has changed for the worse but everything around it has.

The mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops. Kids used to be taught respect and now it’s cool to be disrespectful.

Supervisors used to back you when you were right but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.

Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us.

The media used to highlight the positive contribution our profession gave to society and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy to line their own pockets.

There used to be a common respect among criminals. If they got caught, they understood you had a job to do but now it’s our fault they sit in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions.

If someone attacked a cop, they were seen as such. Now we martyr them and sue for millions.

We used to be able to testify in court and we were believed. Now, unless there is video from three different angles, no one cares what you have to say.

With all this talk about racism and racist cops, I’ve never seen people treated differently because of their race. And while I know that cowards that have never done this job will call me racist for saying it, all I’ve ever seen was criminal behavior and cops trying to stop it and they didn’t give a rip what their skin color was.

 

I’ve seen cops help and save any type of race, gender or ethnicity you can think of and while that used to mean something, no one cares anymore.

 

I’ve been called every name you can think of and many of them with racial overtones and it’s never come from cops. I’ve watched African American cops take the brunt of this and even talked one rookie out of quitting after he was berated by a lot of cowards that had the same skin color as him.

I’ve heard words I never heard before being a cop.

Uncle Tom, Cracker, Pig and the N Word just to name a few. I’ve heard them thousands of times and never once did I see a police officer retaliate.

They just took it.

Despite that, it’s been the greatest opportunity of my life to do this job. I would have recommended it to anyone and I secretly hoped one of my kids would do it one day.

 

They would have been a 4th Generation Cop.

But today, all of that is over. I wouldn’t wish this job on my worst enemy. I would never send anyone I cared about into the hell that this profession has become.

It’s the only job you can do everything right and lose everything.

It’s the only job where the same citizens you risk your life for hate you for it.

It’s the only segment left in society where it’s cool to discriminate and judge, just because of the uniform you wear.

You never get to explain.

You can never reason with them.

The nasty words have now turned into rocks and bottles and gunfire.

I’ve watched it happen to those around me and I have seen the total destruction of their life.

This job is a walking a time bomb and you could get cancelled or prosecuted on the very next call, even if you do everything right.

No profession has to deal with that.

Doctors kill 250,000 people a year. They call them “medical mistakes” because society understands that they do a very difficult job under high stress and they must make the best possible decision in the moment.

Law enforcement is tasked with the same and we are highly successful. Despite the most violent society we have ever seen, less than 1,000 suspects are killed a year. 96% are attacking us with weapons and all but a few others are attacking us with their cars or their fists and more and more with simulated guns so Benjamin Crump can help their family win the lottery.

I’ve seen cops risk their own lives when they shouldn’t have…….just to keep from taking one.

They never get the credit that other professions get.

Cowards are all around us. From chiefs to sheriffs to politicians, no one has our back.

Now, the little we have, we are told they are going to defund us or even abolish us. Citizens with a political agenda will reign over us and all you have to do is wake up and put on a uniform to be a racist.

This weekend I received death threats for just doing my job. It would have been outrageous a decade ago and made national news.

Now, it’s just a Monday.

There will be more threats, more accusations of racism and more lies told about us.

I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them.

It’s over America. You finally did it.

You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.

And while I know, most Americans still appreciate us, it’s not enough and the risk is too high. Those of you that say thank you or buy the occasional meal, it means everything.

But those of you that were silent while the slow turning of the knives in our backs happened by thugs and cowards, this is on you.

Your belief in hashtags and memes over the truth has and will create an environment in your community that you will never expect.

If you think Minneapolis will turn into Mogadishu and that is far from you, it’s coming.

And when it does, remember what your complicity did.

This is the America that you made.

 

 


You can get a lot further in life with a kind word and a gun, than with a kind word alone.

Hey Doug

Wrote a response similar to this, but mentioned introductions to community members. What you said above is solid gold.

If anyone wants to create a flyer/handout that is professional for your org. Go to canva.com and create a free account. On there you will find templates. Start there.

 

If you want it to be glossy/pro/heavier weight - PM me. I work with a nationwide trade printer and can get you wholesale printing prices for anything. Cards, Banners, Flyers, etc. Just let me know.

 

Can also do bumper stickers. Just write me with what you are looking for, upload the doc and I'll shoot you the price, printed and shipped to your door.

Thanks.  This country is decaying faster than I thought it would.

Look here:https://www.nytimes.com/books/best-sellers/combined-print-and-e-book-nonfiction/?utm

 

This is what liberals are reading.  It's unbelievable.  But we have to believe it.

How this will play out within the Democratic Party is key. 

 

I thought that when Elizabeth Warren repeated the Michael Brown myth (the thug in Fergusson whom a police officer had to shoot to keep from being killed himself), that she had honestly

forgotten what had happened  -- since the officer was cleared after an Obama Justice Department investigation -- or was being consciously dishonest and catering to the BLM mob.

 

But now I think it may be the case that liberals are actually convincing themselves of the central lie: that Black failure, where it exists, is due to white racism.

The fact that this failure occurs in cities run by Democrats for many decades is just brushed aside, via the sort of mental gymnastics that people who are gripped

by an ideology can do.

 

We had better start moving in double-time.

Whoa ... this offer needs to be sent out to every militia unit in the country, now!

This is what a national network -- even when we do not yet have a national organization -- can do.

I think your point about introducing yourselves to community members (I assume you mean leaders, like the heads of local churches including, especially, Black churches) is excellent.

There is a big lie that we are vanilla white supremacists.  For instance, when the Oathkeepers went to Fergusson to defend businesses, they made a point of saying that they were there

to defend all businesses, white and Black. But the vile Southern Poverty Law Center report on this said something to the effect, 'Of course, we know they were really there to defend

white businesses.'

Travis, 

 

I read your complete posting ... twice.

 

You should know this:  There are millions of Americans out here in the hinterland ... MILLIONS ... that appreciate the job our police do every single day.  The big cities might have become nightmarish hellholes, but the big cities appear to be no longer part of America.  I went to the Police Academy in Oklahoma City, and worked as an officer in a small community in eastern Oklahoma.  This town loved its police, back then, and they still love their police.  Who knows?  I might still be on the job (perhaps Chief, by now) if a childhood ailment hadn't reared its ugly head, and forced me off the job.

 

I now live in a town of 30,000 people, 75 miles away from Chicago, Illinois.  Chicago is a hellhole, like most of the big cities in America.  But we have peace in our community, with minimal police presence (or at least, visibility).

 

The point is that the cities aren't America.  America is to be found in the countryside - in the small towns and farms that feed the cities (and the world, for that matter).  We can't paint all of America the same color as the cities.  It just isn't possible.

 

I admire you for the courage and determination you showed in 27 years of service.

 

Let the cities burn.  Out here in "the sticks", we take care of our own, and the police are part of our communities.

 

One last thing:  I AM NOT COMPLICIT IN THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA.  But I will defend her to the death.  Also, I lived for several years in Ft. Smith, AR, and received my first degree at what used to be called "Westark Community College", where you were a Captain.  I see that you went to the FBI Academy.  I'm sure that you know that most people don't trust the FBI, anymore (I know that I don't).  It was on your unofficial resume at Law Officer.  Could I be thinking of your father?  Please, let me know.
