We’ve got a growing problem in the United States…

It’s not the fact that we’re having MORE mass shootings since statistics show were actually having FEWER than ever before.

No…

The problem is the GROWING disdain and outright disrespect for police officers around the country. Leftist rhetoric and propaganda paint our boys in blue as violent thugs rather than the public servants they actually are.

Becoming a police officer is no easy decision…

But if you were to talk to them, the vastly overwhelming majority will tell you they didn’t become an officer to arrest or hurt anybody – they got into the profession simply to help people and to serve their communities.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind…

Even though they’re police officers, they’re still HUMAN – which means they can and WILL make mistakes…

But the fact of the matter is that statistics show that less than 1% of all police interactions end up with the suspect being shot or killed.

A Sickening Trend In Society

That being the case…

Every time an officer puts on their uniform and goes out into the street on duty, they’re putting their lives in danger – especially with the way things are happening in our society nowadays.

Remember the Dallas sniper who killed five officers and wounded nine more in 2016?

That was an unprovoked attack – just some former reservist who lost it and started taking out police officers for no reason other than the uniform that they wore.

But because of the all the Leftist rhetoric out there…

Officers have to be careful to remain unbiased and nonviolent – regardless of how combative the suspect is being.

So, officers are having to swallow disrespect at an increasing rate…

Did you see the videos out of New York showing the police trying to make an arrest while the bystanders douse them with water and throw buckets at them?

It was disgusting…

And Mayor Bill de Blasio barely mentioned it—he’s too worried about his failing efforts to win the Democrat nomination for president.

These incidents of blatant disrespect are happening more and more frequently…

Just a few weeks later, Atlanta police officers were called in to break up a massive water-gun fight, only to get soaked by the participants. Although this was done more in fun than disrespect – it still may have crossed the line.

Which is what makes this latest incident so disturbing…

There was another targeted attack on police officers, this time in Philadelphia when a lone gunman shot six officers in an eight-hour standoff. The suspect, who had an extensive criminal record, opened fire when officers attempted to search his house for illegal narcotics. The suspect eventually surrendered and was taken into custody, and all six officers are expected to make a full recovery.

Disrespect To The Highest Degree

As disturbing as this targeted attack was, it wasn’t the most disturbing part…

No, what was disturbing was the fact that, while dealing with this shooter, the officers were taunted, laughed at, and had things thrown at them by the bystanders who gathered around the area.

It was the ultimate form of disrespect…

And the fact that city officials haven’t already condemned this kind of harassment is just as disrespectful.

This is what police are dealing with nowadays…

This is what they get for going out and trying to serve their community.

When the Left vilifies an entire profession just to advance a narrative, this is exactly what you get.

And it’s only going to get worse.

No more. It’s time for us to take a stand…

And we should stand with our men and women in uniform.
