I was listening to the Lars Larson show one day while driving in Portland, Oregon. (Conservative talk radio)
Lars and I have spoken many time having met him on several occasions over the years. The topic was about a black man who was doing wrong at a local motel. The police arrived because of the disturbance this individual was causing. This was a domestic call if memory serves me right. Most police officers will tell you that a domestic call often times is the most dangerous call received. Once the police arrived this individual grabbed a woman's child from her hands and held the child in front of him as a shield. The child was a baby.

As I was driving, listening, a caller (to the show) whose name is Michael said that he would have done the same thing because "Cops are trigger happy in Portland, Oregon!" The caller was an obvious black man himself. I almost lost control of my vehicle, I could not believe what I was hearing! I pulled over to the shoulder on Interstate 5 (I can remember the exact place to this very day) and dialed Lar's show. My call made it through, I spoke with the call screen-er who put me on the air right away. I said of the previous caller (Michael) "Your kind of stupid is why we have police officers in the first place." If it were my child that this individual had snatched out of my wife's hands in order to use as a human shield it would not be the police he would have to be fearful of but rather...ME!

In virtually every case involving a cop shooting a black man dead the incident was not because the person was working on their job, attending a college or raising a family and obeying the laws. Every incident that I have seen to date is because these men or young adults were as far away from personal responsibility and personal accountability as one could be. Not one of these police officers, not one...awoke that day desiring to go kill a black kid or a black man. Everyone of them was doing their job! The officers listed above are gone. They are dead leaving behind families and friends and a host of problems to contend with because they were doing their job.


The police officer who shot the man running away several times
 is where he is supposed to be, in jail!


Their are a bad cops to be sure but, their are a whole lot of Black men, Hispanic men, White men and young people doing a whole lot of bad stuff that hurts people, their community, and our nation.

The individual, black or otherwise who is being responsible, who is trying to maneuver through life holding themselves accountable with their dignity and integrity intact is not part of any one of the stories the media blares all over the tube. Your social status is not a good enough reason for me to feel one way other about you. It is how you conduct yourself when in a situation that could cause your death.

As I have stated we all know that bad cops exist but the majority of police officers are just trying to do a job. Every time that you call for the police because you need help remember that before you go burn down your city or salute a cop killer!
