    First, THANK YOU to all the first responders. 99.9% of the time they do good and no one remembers, but nobody seems to forget that point 1 percent bad...sounds a bit like the Hell's Angels in that regard. Somehow that point one percent is used to paint ALL police with the biggest, broadest brush some people can find...and use Gestapo tactics to get their point across, and cry foul when anyone disagrees.

    Second, I've put myself between a rock and a hard place agging this thread on. I don't blame anyone else, I'm just as guilty and moreso. These are very trying times, and while I refuse to be silenced by cancel culture in real life, I did break the "no politics" rule.

    Third, since there have been complaints, I need to lock this thread. I hope those that have been denied a voice practically EVERYWHERE else had a moment to vent their frustrations.

    I can say I truly appreciate the gesture (and sure most other firefighter and police officers do also) when the clerk offers free coffee or whatever, however I have never truly accepted it. I will attempt to pay, and if doing so will cause a scene or something I will either leave money on the counter or pay ahead for several people behind me, I instill the same wishes in my subordinates to do the same.

    Prayers are offered for these officers, their families, their fellow officers and all who walk with them at this time. Prayers are also offered for all law enforcement officers on duty keeping us safe and enforcing the laws that they will be kept safe and out of harm's way.

    Snowowl...and others in law enforcement who are a part of the garage - thank you for your service. There are many who "walk" the blue line with you and are proud of you and thankful each day that you put your lives on the line for us.

Los Angles County Sheriff's Office was the first department I worked for in 1981 and South Central was my district, so this goes straight to my heart. I transferred out of there to a small department in the north east a few years later. As it is now when I go on duty every night, even tho I am mainly desk duty I still on occasion am on the street my main goal is to return home to my family after every shift. People still look at the uniform and will spit at me or make some rude comment. The other night I was stopped to get a coffee and was trying to get my bank card out of my wallet and I told the couple behind me to go ahead the woman looked at her BF and said"We had better do what the officer says or he may beat us up or worse, come on lady I was holding up the line fighting with my wallet and was being nice.

    SnowOwl, I thought you would be retired by now. If you are nearing retirement then do so. Too many people now want to get attention by doing horrible things to Police Officers. God love you and protect you while on duty. I appreciate your service.

    I saw the video of the officers getting shot. Horrible. I hope the officers recover quickly.


    Trade in your mask for earplugs and the news will look different.




    Listen to your president. He's been telling you for years that the news media is fake.

    Cody,you have to keep in mind that all the people writing for or talking for the general public have their own agenda that they want to push on others.
    here are few examples i have seen recently.

    while i was reading a very interesting report about this female doctor who was making great head way into understanding a deadly disease.then right in the middle of the article there was inserted a long paragraph about her being a lesbian.since being a lesbian has no bearing on her ability as a researcher.i have to wonder what was the writer's agenda for adding this off topic paragraph.

    this next one really got my blood boiling.because it shows the bias in news reporting when a minority is involved and they are not the victim.
    on april 24,2020 in a Fresno Ca courtroom Kori Ali Muhammad pled guilty to four murders.Kori, who is black' said he killed the 4 men because they were white.he also pled guilty to trying to kill others because they were white.here is his score card:

    Muhammad was convicted of first-degree murder for Jackson's slaying; second-degree murder for Williams, Randalls and Gassett; four counts of attempted murder; one count of shooting at an occupied vehicle and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

    the above could be considered a straight forward news report.but since the media is always trying to stir up action to get headlines.so i have to ask what was their agenda in down playing these tragedies.

    i wondered why was there no white lives matter rally,no protest about people being murder due to what color their skin was.and most importantly there was no media coverage after the first report of the trial.

    this is my 1st and last post of this type.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the deputies.
    I waited a bit to post because of my views but seriously--to these activist groups and the media--YOU OUGHT TO BE VERY ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!!!! You are not fixing society's ills--you are responsible for a lot of them, and making the issues worse. It doesn't matter who is right or wrong, but someone was nearly killed by a subhuman piece of garbage. I even recall seeing on TV yesterday how certain members of a certain activist group (yeah, we all know who) were chanting for this woman's death.

    My thoughts and prays go out to Deputy Apolinar, her partner their families and the LASO. Every day police officer go to work knowing the risk of their jobs, and weather all your personal interactions with them have been positive or negative they have a tough job, and most truly are trying to protect and assist their communities and it’s residents.

    I will say that a small percent of cops are bad apples (They come in every walk of life) and some let the badge go to their head, but I will also say that a high percent of the problems come from people who don’t listen, respect or follow the law and are usually given a chance to avoid arrest or a physical altercation but chose not to.

    Its been a bit over two years, long before the pandemic and the BLM stuff, two officers were sitting in a diner window seat eating lunch in the next county over, and some filth walked up out of nowhere and killed both of them in cold blood.

    I've had my own grievances with cops in the past, truth be told some let the badge go to their head. Most just want to make it through another day for their families. It takes a special kind of person to put on a uniform and stare down possible death just for going to work...same goes for the military. The actions of one or two don't diminish my respect for the rest.

    But the scum that would murder in cold blood...there isn't a public execution too good for any of them.

    And some stupid high school <choke> suspends a couple of football players for honoring their Dads and other first responders, on 9/11 no less??? The whole school board should be tarred and feathered and run out of town.

    Looks like most of the MSM couldn't even be bothered to comment. No surprise there.

    It took me years to see, but way back in the 90's I started to figure out that, while they like to claim neutrality, it had come to mind that the media is a very strong influence on the direction they'd prefer to see things move in society, basically subtly concealing, obscuring or editorializing small bits of information in news stories, that can result in a large effect on public opinion.

    Back in those days it didn't bother me so much watching the news, I guess I could more easily ignore what did not belong in the story, and in time hear what did by listening to different accounts of it, but now it is probably a somewhat more difficult task for me to quickly decipher what is actually the news in the story, so I seldom watch it anymore, unless there are things happening around me that I need to know.

    An example of the news could be like this story of the shooting, after I looked at this thread, and so did a search for LA shooting, stories about it came up, and I clicked on the very first link, very briefly they described two deputies shot, and where, and an unknown assailant, and a manhunt, then they started to weave into the story, and dominated the article about what happens when the rolls are reversed, although, while yes, personally I feel that too is an important story, and yes, it definitely needs to be address, but separately as another story, It didn't belong as part of the story about these two deputies.
