I understand.

And now that I heard part of Resenstein testimony yesterday, with the rift in this country, our lae enforcement people will need prayers more then ever, because the evil look on that man's face certainly tells that we are devided.. no longer united.

And special prayers for those on the border.... inclu all ICE

I think there is distrust of law enforcement officers because there is a contingent of bad law enforcement officers.

Exactly, add to the fact that negativity receives much more attention than law enforcement officers just doing their jobs.

I had numerous times I dealt with law enforcement going through a divorce.  Overall, I was not satisfied with my interactions with the police.

while divorce is high, among cops that does not make a bad cop.  My dad went through a divorce and still received police officer of the year for oakland county in the 80's.  Also it is considered poisoning the well, or biased sample fallacies to assume that just because a dozen police are caught on camera beating people, that the majority does that.  When that is well under 1 percent of all police.  Yes cops can lack a sense of humor.  I get it. They can be very direct and intimidating, I get it. But when you deal with people who don't understand you all day, hispanics you may yell more often than not.  or when you deal with people who can kill you, you tend to be a little on edge.  You are myself may not be any better given the circumstances.

I don't think you understood what I wrote.  I was going through a divorce.  And my interactions with police were because of that.  My frustration lies with their behavior.  If I had been female, I would have got a different result.


I have a general respect for police, but my respect level is lower than it was.

I kinda had a similar view when I was going through my divorce. My ex-wife threatened to phone the police claiming that I assaulted her. I called the police myself and was told that they would have no choice but to remove me from the home, my argument to them didn't help matters, but in the end the officer on the phone told me the one thing I have to my credit is that I phoned them before she could make such a claim.

but you fail to see that if you hadn't gone through the divorce, then you would still respect police.  So it's not the police that is the problem, it's that relationships fail and we have bad days because of it.  And anyone who questions us at that point is misbehaving.  I certainly understand while I have not been divorced, I very well could have been. I was engaged three times, all broken off by the girl.  Thank God for that, at least one of them would have ended in divorce for sure.  Sorry to hear about your divorce.

yes police make mistakes, but that by all means does not mean that they should be shot while eating at a restaurant.

(not that you are saying that, just trying to get back on topic.)

here is an article how police have been demonized and that is resulting in cops losing their lives:

No, I didn't fail to see anything.   It was because of the behavior and typical actions taken by police in domestic situations.  If you had been through what I have, you may have less respect for the police as well.

how can you not respect people who put their lives on the line every day, for freedoms we take for granted?

Subject: Young men in 1944

This is what 18 year old “kids” were doing in 1944.  No safe spaces, no hurtful unthinkable remarks that they couldn’t cope with, just dying for their country so the ungrateful, uninformed  snowflakes of today could act like fools decades later…………..
 
Subject: WW II footage at sea
 
 
This 2 minute video is pretty moving.  Worth your while.

I changed the op, that negative comments about police officers are now off topic and that one should form their own thread for police officers if they wish to post negativity.  Thank you for understanding.

great video, thank.  Something to think about on the 4th of July.

not all the imperfections of the military and police, but their heroic activities.

MENTOR, Oh. (K-LOVE News-Billie Branham) - Laura Weber snapped the photo of an officer soluting during the funeral procession of Mentor Patrolman Mathew Mazany because she noticed a man providing shade for him. He held an umbrella over the officer's head and furthered his respect by holding his hat behind him. Northeast Ohio has been experiencing a heat wave, along with a huge portion of that area of the country. Temperatures that day had been in the upper 90's with sweltering humidity.

After posting the photo, Weber then searched to find that man's identity. Strangers were able to track down and identify Marko Gorshe. This is personal for Weber, the wife of an officer herself. Gorshe, however, refused Weber's gift saying, "I shouldn’t be rewarded for something I’m already supposed to do. As long as I touched one persons life today I’m happy. I really do appreciate it though."

Weber still wanted to do something special for Gorshe. She went to Facebook asking police departments across the country to honor Gorshe's respect with a token. So far, dozens have stepped up with police patches coming from as far away as Anchorage, Alaska.

TAMPA, Fla. –  On any given day, Andrew Lumish arrives at a historic Tampa-area cemetery without fanfare or attention. He’s there to carefully restore veteran’s gravestones blackened by the elements and decades of neglect.

Cemeteries across the country will show you a similar scene—thousands of long-forgotten monuments belonging to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

But Lumish, a cleaning company owner, aims to refurbish the memories – and the gravestones – of America’s heroes whose time-worn tombstones have started falling apart.

Lumish said he stumbled upon a Tampa cemetery five years ago to photograph some gravestones, but what he saw that day would change his life.

“So many veteran’s monuments…were in really poor condition and it was upsetting to me,” he said. “I didn’t want for them to be forgotten…I started to research how to properly restore monuments.”

His preparation is always the same, even after 1,500 completed restorations.

He is given permission to restore a monument from cemetery staff or a descendant, charges no fee for his services and brings all his own equipment—a few 5-gallon water containers, some microfiber towels and an assortment of over 12 brushes ranging in shape and size.

Recent, he was restoring the gravestone of Milton H. Phelps, a U.S. Army Private First Class in World War II who died in 1973 at the age of 67.

“Each one tells a story…our subject right here is originally from New York state,” says Lumish, as he methodically sprays the stone while scrubbing away mold and mildew so deeply permeated that each swirl of his brush creates a wave of green muck.

He rinses the stone with water to check his progress and sprays it again with something called D/2 biological solution, which Lumish said is the only product used to clean monuments in national cemeteries.
