The POLICE: Earned Valor aNd Respect

Gary Trichter DWI Specialist

My friends, our very existence is being attacked from within. The attack is on heroes we call policemen and policewomen.

When William Shakespeare wrote “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet“, he could’ve been referring to our police brothers and sisters.
Like our military, law enforcement officers stand ever ready to give up their lives for us. Unlike the military, however, they are wrongly held in contempt, misunderstood, and maligned.
Most people do not have any clue what it is like to be a police officer.
Think about this for a moment: you get up in the morning, you get dressed, you go to work, and, you really don’t know if you’ll be alive at the end of your day!
Not only do you not know but also, your family does know whether you will come home after work.
On a daily basis, they are called to respond to domestic disputes, to assaults, to burglaries, to robberies, and to murders – some after the fact and some in progress.
They get beat up, spit on, and verbally abused!
Here, every time an officer is sent to help, he/she has no clue what she/he is walking into and who she/he will interact with.
Will those people be friendly, will they be hostile, will they have evil intent, will they be reasonable, will they be filled with hate?
In every instance, the officers simply do not know, but yet, they go!
Why would someone volunteer to do this?
Because they are Racist?
Because they have a political agenda?
Because they don’t care about people?
No, the answer is much simpler than that! Officers go into police work to make a positive difference! They go into police work because they understand the need for the law to apply equally to all of us!
Moreover, they go into police work because they care about this country and about the children that will have to grow up in it – their children and your children.
Today, the mainstream media and the far left claim our biggest problem is police racism and its abuse of power!
The mainstream media and the left argue that there is a need for a major cultural change within the police profession!
This focus is both MISPLACED and a knowing LIE!
The problem is not the police, but rather, the problem is a society that disrespects the law! The problem is a society that allows others to avoid accountability for their wrongs.
The problem is a society that lacks the courage to directly address the problem and to tell the truth!
Here, the truth is THAT ALL LIVES MATTER, BLACK, WHITE, BROWN, RED, AND ESPECIALLY, BLUE! Indeed, without the BLUE, none of the lives will really matter because none of the lives will be protected!
The truth is that the mainstream media, the left, and gutless politicians are the BIG problem!!!
Our police officers, like our military, are equally important to the very existence of America! Without question, soldiers in battle deserve the valor they earned. That said, our police officers deserve no less appreciation and thanks for their Valor than that of our military.
Clearly, in terms of the ultimate price that could be paid, there is no difference!
To those that hate the police, I say read your Scripture –especially John: 13 where it is written: “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
Moreover, I say to you, many of the claims of police abuse occurred directly because those claiming the abuse absolutely both disrespected the officers, the law, and through the first stone.
Being an officer, having to make split-second life & death decisions, on a daily basis, is incredibly hard and challenging- you can’t get it right every time.
Sadly, even when those decisions are right, political differences, and hateful people with an agenda, challenge officers, and not only hurt the police profession but WE THE PEOPLE, as a REPUBLIC.
The police culture does need a major changed, rather, it is the culture of the rebellious media and left that needs to change. To do otherwise is to put the cart before the horse. Police come in a rainbow of colors so it is a lie to label all of them Racist. It is a sin to let others call the police Racist.
Dr. Martin Luther King once said: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
If Dr. King were alive today, he would say the same thing that a person should not be judged by the color of their uniform.
Without a doubt, he would support the police and condemn the rioters, looters, the instigators, the mainstream media, and left for destroying the very accomplishments he fights so hard to bring to all of us.
In our Declaration of Independence, our founders wrote as they broke ties with England, “and for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
Think about that pledge as you wake up every morning because every morning our police are going out to do their job where they have pledged their lives to protect you/us!
Think about your responsibility to protect them and their families from misplaced judgment, wrongful criticism, hate, injury, death, and politics – think about your Honor and go earn it.
And remember, at the end of your day, there’s a much greater chance that you will return home to your family, than does a police officer.
Moreover, think about what you do today, will set the stage for whether or not good people will remain in law-enforcement. Think about whether or not good people, will go into law-enforcement?
Do nothing and nothing good will happen.
Do something good and it will.
Without good people going into law-enforcement, our country is doomed and you will be partly responsible.
Tell that to your children! God bless the police, and Lord, help them in their job.
