Cop-bashing a disturbing pastime for race baiters and progressives

Have you had enough of the cop-bashing, civil destruction, car-burning and looting by society’s derelicts? Do you think “progressive” politicians are dismissing the real problems sparking violent tragedies across urban America?

It took the assassination of two Brooklyn cops to make it clear that America is close to crossing the line from order to anarchy. The questions for elected officials are: Are you going to allow mob rule to override the rule of law in this nation? Are you supporting wacko leftists who talk and act like society’s main problem is the police?

Our democratic republic has processes and procedures for resolving disputed issues over how police officers carry out their duties. This process should not tolerate protesters who use destruction, violence or civil disobedience to get their way. When they break laws and destroy property, protesters are no more than malcontent human trash. When they escalate their actions to loot and steal and harm police and others, they shift from trash to thugs.

Cops put their lives on the line every day, requiring them to make split-second decisions about their own safety and the safety of those they are sworn to protect. Mind you, these police stand between the public and criminals, between wrong-doers and victims. In the eyes of police officers, resisting arrest or getting aggressive with cops may be the first in a series of steps that could lead to that officer’s death or injury.

A police officer does not know how far aggressive behavior will go. The stupid guy who banged on an occupied police cruiser several times made the choice to put his own life in danger. The even dumber criminal who strikes a cop or goes after the officer’s gun deserves whatever happens to him. The gene pool will be better off without him.

Those who engage in civil disobedience should be jailed, and if they resist arrest, they deserve to be beaten into submission. Looters and firebombers should be shot on sight, as authorized under martial law. This would limit looting to one night before order is restored. If you think any of these penalties are unfair, then don’t break the law.

Police are entitled to martial law allowances when dealing with looters, firebombers, anarchists, gang-rapists and radical Islamists. Law-abiding citizens need protection from nihilists, and if that means equipping police agencies with military hardware, so be it. The rule of law must persevere.
We cannot count on the Obama administration and the race baiters to protect us against mob action. Obama’s administration and especially his Department of Justice invite chaos and add fuel to the fires set by protesters when they treat Al Sharpton more respectfully than the police and the nation’s laws.

If you’re a parent of a criminal, don’t blame the cops for protecting the public from the unlawful actions of your child, because your failure as a parent is to blame for how your derelict kid turned out. Some fool protester carried a sign a few weeks ago that said, “No mother should have to fear for her son’s life every time he robs a store.” I kid you not, that’s the stunningly illogical message the guy was promoting. Any mother harboring that fear is an abject failure as a parent. If she’s truly in “fear,” she should spend her sane moments teaching her son not to rob stores.

This is not a race problem. It’s an education problem caused by the failure of parents and society to teach black youth not to break the law and not to resist arrest. So here’s a tip for those who provoke or assault police or engage in property-destroying protests: You deserve the counterpunch to your behavior. You made a choice to put yourself in harm’s way. You’re not the victim, you’re the perpetrator. You’re not being discriminated against, you’re being justly retaliated against for choosing to violate the law. You agitated the bull, so now you get the horns.
