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.

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.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas."

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Senator John Cornyn delivered a keynote address on Saturday morning and Senator Ted Cruz followed later that afternoon. Both made remarks placing blame for partisan gridlock on Democratic leadership of the Senate, but it is their comments on the shutdown that are generating the buzz.

John Koskinen has failed the IRS and the American people. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified last week about the missing emails lost forever due to computer failures. When questioned about any more crashes or computer issues recently, Koskinen told the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak.” Can someone please buy the IRS reliable computers and a backup system? Don’t forget, the IRS canceled the back-up contract service that they had for six years, shortly after Lois Lerner’s original hard drive went missing.

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. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

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

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.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.
