    Default George Floyd & the protesting & rioting across the USA!

    Sorry, guys, that the stats don’t back up your emotional attachment to the pedestal you’ve put police officers on.

    I never said it wasn’t a dangerous job, in fact I acknowledged it was and said I wouldn’t think to not call it dangerous. All I said was that, contextually, it’s not as dangerous as most think it is.

    Secondly, go back to my first garbage man post where I say, “See how silly this is?” That was the point of bringing up garbage men. If you’re just going to refute facts in favor of emotions, then that’s what you sound like to me. That was the point. There’s this theme you can’t have an opinion if you’ve never been a cop and it’s ludicrous.

    If simply pointing out a plain fact that isn’t as dangerous as some think brings out these reactions, it’s obvious some of you can’t have an objective conversation about this.

    I’m not sure anybody is sensibly arguing that there aren’t more dangerous jobs.

    And they’re wrong, whoever is. Because that’s purely a statistical fact.

    But the argument that cops should be respected less because there are other more dangerous jobs is also a poor one.

    I respect the hell out of truck drivers (being in the transportation industry) and yes their job is extremely difficult and dangerous. I respect truck drivers possibly more than I do cops, but that’s just a personal bias.

    But the fact is cops have to put themselves in harms way so that innocent/incapable people don’t have to. That separates what they do from what a garbage man, logger or a worker in manufacturing does.

    I’m not sure how this can even be argued against.

    St. Louis, MO newly elected mayor will hire more social workers to to deal with crime. I'm sure this will cut down on the murders. Looks like cops will be a thing of the past and all those that think they are the boogie man can rest at ease.

    No one said anything about respecting or disrespecting. I don’t respect or disrespect cops any more or less than any other job. (I do think a discussion of their tactics and how to go about things is important because of their unique position to kill people.)

    I brought up this admittedly silly analogy to point out that it’s ridiculous to say you cannot have an informed opinion about an industry because you’ve never performed that job.

    Certainly there’s a wisdom that comes with experience in a particular position. But that doesn’t stop people from having lots of opinions on teachers and schools, for example. Notice when we talk about education on this board I never ask “Have you ever been in a classroom?” and if the answer is “No,” tell them to STFU.

    The only reason we’re at this point in this conversation is there certain people who don’t live in reality and cannot except that there are many more dangerous jobs than police.

    Hiring more social workers will help.

    Yep. I had the audacity to point out that a lot of mundane jobs are way more dangerous than policing and we don’t use that as a crutch if they don’t do their job well or the industry as a whole has some major flaws.

    No one cares that there are more dangerous jobs. You are using stats to diminish what a cop does and goes through.

    The problem is, LM, that the fact of “there are other more dangerous job” was brought up by somebody who has literally said in this thread that they don’t really give a shit about or respect cops and that they wouldn’t call on the cops if a dangerous situation were to arise.

    That’s how this got kicked off. I don’t think you respect cops less because there are other more dangerous jobs.

    And we are in agreement. Cops should not get leniency just because they have a dangerous job. Cops have orders and rules to follow and the issue time and time again has been that they get a light pee-pee slap whenever they break them.

    Please explain how. Far too many are socially conditioned to put it a nice way to how they become in the future. Yes a social worker would be a good place for this, but the black community doesn't seem to take outside advice. All seem to talk about being family oriented, but when it comes down to it they are scared enough to not see anything...snitches get stitches more like a bullet or ten.

    It's really sad that so many kids grow up in that kind of environment.

    I just don't see how a social worker can "police" that.

    People aren't born criminals, they become it due to their environment. So adding anything to the safety net (like social workers) can help push people in a better direction. Does it mean you replace cops with them? Nope. But anything that can pick of a potential problem is a good thing.

    I wanna apologize. I get a little heated and I don't dismiss the hard work of law enforcement.

    I was shit faced.

    Having said that, my views are my views and I don't apologize for them but how I say them. No, I've not been shot at but I have been stuck with a butter knife from a crazy ass ho.
