When they as a nationwide unit, openly and forever dissolve the Silent Blue Line, many more people will fully support them.

It's corruption, for certain. There's also the lying about what someone did on charges because they know there will be a potential plea deal to lower charge severity.

Beat patrol and their supervisors positions are crappy and you see people at their worst, even good people in emotionally charged situations will behave poorly. Patrol police get lied to for a living.

While there a few bad apples in every barrel, the Thin Blue Line is one that I can support. I know this, I couldn't do their job.
With the dangers they face on a daily basis and the crap they have to put up with, their frustrations can be easily justified.
But, they signed up for it knowing it wasn't an easy job. I just appreciate what they are trying to do.

I bought this from a very nice Kentucky State Police officer out of the back of his unit.

Years ago, I was offered the chance to buy a pen/pencil set from a county deputy for $65 cash which coincidently, was exactly what the speeding ticket fine was going to be for the ticket he had just issued to me.
(I didn't have $65 cash on me...the judge accepted a paper check the next week.)

I seriously appreciate it when I run into a decent person on the force (which is normal) and respect that the job can be very crappy. Motorcycle cops and lesbian ones aren't so agreeable to the public. Nobody would want me to be a traffic cop.

Exactly. I remember a time they didnt shoot at the slightest thing, didnt bother with "charges" over minor stuff, would drive a kid home to the parents to deal with instead of handcuffing 6-year-olds, and didnt punch people in the face for words. They have become a brutal thug gang that deserves elimination, not support, until they return to what they once were.

Ah. Thanks Jake. I see where I misstated it. Not just a thin line of silence but a substantial wall of it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_wall_of_silence

As our PFF resident police officer told me last year in one of his posts:
The "blue wall" will never go away. All we can do is deal with the people we catch violating the laws and policies. The "blue wall" is human nature, a manifestation of a very primitive desire to stay out of trouble.

I disagree. The italicized text is a rationalization. An attempt to explain it away. It IS human nature tho, to be honest and honorable in all endeavors. It IS NOT 'human nature' for people to lie and remain silent about criminal and unethical activity, and that IMO, is and should always hold true for those in uniform.
Mr 'whoever it takes'.
TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!!

Thanks Don
I appreciate the reply.
We the people can not get so carried away that we strip all of the good people away as well.

This wall has no color by the way, it exists everywhere. BLM, MAGA, Government... The list goes on and on.
So yes tear down the wall but lets be careful not to tear down our foundation at the same time.

Cliff P. Thank you for continuing this platform, some days it is my only retreat.
