Here's the deal, conservative spoogerags and twat mites: You sit there and talk about how much you fuckin' love cops, you love 'em so much that you just wanna suck 'em off, suck those cop dicks until they spray blue jizz all over you. But when it comes time to actually do shit that keeps cops safe and secure? You fuckin' close your mouths and act all prim.
The New York Post's Michael Goodwin, a lipless joke of a writer, said that "Mayor Bill de Blasio and the cop-haters" gave cover for Ismaaiyl Brinsley's murders. Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said the mayor saying that he told his biracial son to be careful when dealing with cops "set off this latest firestorm."
You know what cops hate more than politicians who mildly criticize the acts of violent officers? They fuckin' hate guns. They want to get guns out of the hands of people who shoot them at police. In fact, back in 2013, the International Association of Chiefs of Police supported a Senate bill that would have expanded background checks to gun shows and online purchases. Yeah, Ray fuckin' Kelly was for it, too. He said there are too many fuckin' guns in the United States. Back in 2006, you know who stood up and supported stricter gun laws in New York state? Patrick Lynch of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association.
What's gonna protect cops more? Locking up peaceful protesters? Or reducing the number of and access to guns?
For just one second, put yourself in an American cop's shoes. There are over 300 million firearms out there. When you see someone you want to arrest, you just assume that person has a gun. If you're an inexperience, poorly-trained, or just shitty cop, you're gonna mistake anything for a gun because you're expecting a gun. When someone reaches for a pocket, you expect a gun. Because that's America in the 21st century. This ain't to excuse cops who fuck up, but you can fuckin' well bet that cops in England don't automatically assume someone has a gun because it's England. Chances are that they don't. It's a different way of existing, being actually shocked by guns.
The NRA has caused more cop shootings than a nonstop parade of protests.
Conservatives don't actually give a fuck about cops as people, despite their moaning over the deaths of Officers Liu and Ramos. What they like is the authority and control the cops represent, the police force as a means of oppressing dissent (and, let's be honest, a lot of cops get off on the authority and control, too). If the right-wing did give a fuck, police would make a shit-ton more money, paid for by tax hikes, like Democratic Mayor Mitch Landrieu is attempting in New Orleans.
And maybe they'd not cut the pensions and benefits of retired cops like fake tough guy Chris Christie, who seeks to balance New Jersey's budget on the backs of the police and firefighters. In October, a retired police officer called into a radio show to talk to Christie. After brushing off the cop's attempt to criticize him, Christie jowled, "You're a guy that retired at 58 years old, with a full pension and free medical benefits for life, and you're coming on the air to complain...Pay your fair share." If President Obama said that, Fox "news" would cause riots.
What is hurting cops more? Mayor de Blasio saying that asshole cops should stop being assholes? Or Gov. Christie telling cops that their pensions might not be there in full when they retire?
