Ferguson and the Changing
Attitudes Towards Cops

American Thinker, by C. Edmund Wright

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/17/2014 8:15:19 AM

One of the fascinating layers of the Ferguson riot story is how this tragedy has exposed what is a rapidly changing attitudinal climate towards law enforcement officers (LEOs). What was for years a stable predicate -- conservatives being reflexively ‘law and order’ and inherently giving cops the benefit of the doubt -- while liberals with the built in ACLU type disdain for cops tending to always assume the worst of those in power – is now a vortex of confusion, cross currents,and contradictions. It’s not a total flip-flop of the convention, but it’s moving in that direction. After all, we’ve seen

My respect for police has diminished greatly over the years. There have been too many shootings of unarmed citizens. If a policeman is so paranoid he thinks he has to shoot first, that person needs to find another line of work.

As I travel down I-40 I can be assured that at some point I will see a car pulled over, two or three police cars with flashing lights surrounding it and all its contents spread out on the grass. This is just too much for me.

The police are getting out of control. They need to have the heavy boot of the local government stomp on their necks. You know, like the way the police press their knees into a person on the ground.

Obviously we don´t live in Mayberry any more, but to lump all the police officers into some grotesque militaristic juggernaut is foolish. They put on their badges to make their communities a better place for you and their families. I always suggest taking a ride-along with your local agency to meet the folks that probably know your neighborhood better than you do and who are not all Rambo. The good people who answer our calls for help are being denigrated and that shouldn´t be. Tragic mistakes happen in every line of work, but to deem all of them guilty is equally tragic.

Who are the machines guns, armored vehicles, helicopters, grenades, and implements of war to be used against?

I think it has shown that police forces can no longer be viewed as fellow citizens but more like a paramilitary force built and trained to intimidate and subjugate the very citizens that pay their salaries.

#2 I don´t think anyone, and not the author, are lumping them all together. The way I read it, it is just an "unlumping" so to speak - of the cops and the law and order conservative always supporting each other.

That is a long gone fantasy. It was that way most of my life, but no more.

5 you can continue to enjoy the fantasy that the blue wall or blue line is there to protect you and your family. You´re decades behind. But go ahead and think that... right up until you become the target.

The thin blue line is there to protect only the cops themselves in far too many cases. Good cops will admit it. Bad cops will brag about it.

I´d love you see you whining essobees shipped off to anywhere but here without the police protection you stupidly denigrate...like anywhere there is ISSS.

All these urban racial rioting situations up to now have always remained in predominantly underclass Black communities with the Black rioters expressing their interpretation of their first amendment rights by burning down and looting the businesses that serve those Black communities. If that rioting and looting were to shift to White suburban communities the attitudes of those communities would shift back to the favor of the police very quickly.

Rand Paul and his daddy are libertarians first, so they are against big government all the time and that includes big city police who from time to time have to show and use military type equipment for officer safety purposes.

Too many instances of police attacking, swarming, beating and even murdering for me to feel fine with today´s police atmosphere. No one has noticed the tanks in small towns, the proliferation of SWAT teams all over the nation?
I have thankfully had good experiences with deputies when my ex and I were separated but that doesn´t mean I don´t see what´s happening to others all over our country.
"The good people who answer our calls for help are being denigrated and that shouldn´t be."
Oh yeah. The SWAT teams breaking in and destroying, shooting, killing, often just delivering a warrant, or attacking the wrong house? It´s nothing, right? As long as it doesn´t happen to us, nothing is wrong.
You´d better pray it´s never you.

Well, which came first? The chicken, or the egg?

Are not all our experiences in life collected in our minds to form and re-form the attitudes we carry with us? If, generally speaking, attitudes towards police and other LEOs is changing, perhaps that´s because the actions of the cops are changing. And perhaps their actions are changing because attitudes towards them are changing.

Come on, hos do we sort this out? Should cops give up their weaponry and defensive tools before the thugs and miscreants give up theirs? Or vice versa?

The bad guys continue to ramp up their hardware and blame it on the cops having bigger and sturdier hardware. Cops likewise.

There are those out there who want to confiscate all guns in this country. And they claim that too many bad guys have them. And they believe that many of the guns the bad guys have are stolen from us good guys. Which, maybe they are.

If the bad guys come after us, don´t we want the guys who come to our rescue to be able to do everything they can with everything they have?

Conversely, if we are suddenly redefined AS THE BAD GUYS, do we want this hardware pointed at us?

I don´t have any answers here. I´m just trying to reason out the cause and effect. Or the effect of the cause, or whatever.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

How can Republicans recapture the U.S. Senate from Harry Reid and the Democrats? A new Politico poll points to a winning strategy — if GOP leaders have the courage to use the remaining seven weeks to nationalize the elections around one game-changing issue. Under the headline, “GOP has edge on immigration in midterms,” Politico offered a surprising review of battleground House and Senate races. The generally liberal publication found that two-thirds of likely voters disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the issue — and that even independent voters trust the GOP over the Democrats on the subject.

According to the New York Times, Obama senses the possibility of Syria firing on US planes as they conduct ISIS strikes in Syria. It is likely somebody will shoot at them, and it is likely that who did the shooting will be up for debate. “He made clear the intricacy of the situation, though, as he contemplated the possibility that Mr. Assad might order his forces to fire at American planes entering Syrian airspace. If he dared to do that, Mr. Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system, which he noted would be easier

Steve Scalise Lobbyist Advisor: GOP Must

A GOP lobbyist who has been advising House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) is urging Republicans to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation "pronto" if they gain control of Congress after the midterms. Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against President Barack Obama´s executive amnesty, John Feehery argued that Republicans must not oppose Obama and ram through amnesty if they control Congress. "They should pass immigration reform, pronto," he wrote in Tuesday´s The Hill. Though former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has reportedly told Obama that there

On September 12, 2014 Breitbart posted an infuriating report, “Facebook’s Marc Andreessen: Jeff Sessions ‘Clinically Insane’ for Supporting U.S. Workers.” The title of the report made it clear that at best, Andreessen lacks respect or compassion for his fellow Americans and those who support unfortunately all-too-rare politicians such as Senator Jeff Sessions, whose unwavering support of American citizens through effective enforcement of America’s already existent immigration laws have evoked such a vile and outrageous response from Andreessen.

A fact that every politician and news talking-head in the world seems to be certain of is that you can’t win a war by air power alone. Even the media-hired retired generals throw it out as an absolute truth of warfare, as if it had fallen from the lips of Sun Tzu himself. Ask anyone, civilian, military, whatever, and he will quickly inform you of the truth of that unassailable rule of modern warfare. But when has any nation ever in history attempted to prevail in war by the singular use of airpower? “It has never happened because it just won’t

On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam.

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
