War on the Police

Every day the police face danger.  Perhaps not all the time.  In some areas, they go to war when they go to work.  In either case an encounter with a violent offender poses the possibility of a fight.  Gangsta rap communicating and advocating violence against the police illustrates this point.  The following video may be typical.

This kind of daily conflict has to wear on a person.  Some have the grace to take it calmly, others will be more tense.  I remember seeing a North Carolina State Patrol officer in a commercial on television.  I wondered if the apparent permanent frown on his face indicated considerable accumulated emotional trauma in his work.  With this pressure some could act out sufficiently for a false accusation by the allies of the other side of this war, not to mention that necessary use of force could bring it anyway.  Odds are occasionally someone might snap.  He would not be innocent if he committed a crime, but perhaps one would sympathize that he was pushed into it by the long accumulation of enemy offenses.

Now George Floyd is the innocent hero of liberal activism.  Or is he?  While allies in the media play him a martyr, the New York Post posted an article saying the Minneapolis police union chief said he had a  ‘violent criminal history.’

But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.  1 Peter 2:20 NIV

On this pretext of martyrdom, wild ones run the street killing, setting fires, and committing other violence.  Then Greeks firebomb the American embassy so show that this dark side of humanity is universal and not subject to accusations of racism.  Can you say "Abula, bula," because this proceeding looks like loincloth and spear on the part of the participants in my eyes.

I think the worst victims of the sham are not Mr. Floyd and the police, but that a great many thinking people have been drawn into mob justice by the public propaganda slant.

Shame on America!

"Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.  Matt 24:28 NASB
