Just a cop’s wife.

June 18, 2020

I received this from someone I will call “Jill”

I’ve been a cop’s wife for 22 years, and I was a cop for 7 years.  In fact, we met on the job. I quit the force when I got pregnant with our first child.

I wish all these politicians could spend a week on patrol with a cop in a big city, and put their namby-pamby rules into effect. I can tell you, there would be one hell of a lot less politicians.

Are there bad cops? Sure, just like there are bad priests and bad lawyers. No cop wants these jerk-offs on the force, and I agree with being able to turn these bad guys in without fear of being ostracized.

But this crap about defunding the police, or all police (pronounced ‘Poe-leese’ by their detractors) being killers is just B.S.

There is no similarity between the George Floyd killing and what happened to Rayshard Brooks.

Brooks resisted arrest.  I would guess (and it’s just a guess) that he may have had wants or warrants that he didn’t want to answer for, and that’s why he resisted.

Whatever the reason, he threatened the officers.

If you think a taser isn’t a weapon, then come stand in front of me and let me shoot you with one. Please, let me do that.

And I notice no one is talking about sending social workers into domestic violence situations, which are one of the top places for cops to get injured.

In ending let me say this.  I got one good thing out of this.  My husband has quit the force. No longer do I have to fear seeing a chaplain on my front porch. The city has lost a damn good cop, but at least I get to keep my husband.”

‘Nuff said.
