It’s not really a goal.

Train for worst, hope for the best. Sure, there are bad apples out there. But most of us in Military, Law Enforcement or High End Security don't want trouble. But, if we don't do it, who will?

No different then the military. Infantry units( 11b) like the one I served in only have one mission. Train to fight and fight to win. Freedom and security doesn't come free and not without sacrifices for those that do it and their loved ones. Just two years (April 11th) ago being shot at, and watching a fellow officer getting shot while returning fire, it sticks with you. We don't always think how hard it is for our loved ones. When asked, they(family and friends) will tell you. That is just the person he/ she is. There to help and sometimes that means doing things(legally) we have to live with the rest our lives.

My wife got that dreaded 3 am call once, but, thankfully it was me telling her what was going to be on the news in a few hours and I was alright and my fellow officer was being treated and would be ok. My wife's tears I don't want to see ever again unless there happy tears. And my family that called(my brother is a 24 year Sheriffs Deputy). Not one said I should give it up. They understand who I am.

Courage means going into danger without knowing the outcome. Sarge

It is beyond dangerous.

Whats your point? It is not the same. Yep, farming is statistically more dangerous, but it is usually because the farmer did something careless, not because the combine purposely tried to kill the farmer. Yep, construction is very dangerous, but not because a circular saw purposely tried to kill you (again, probably a careless move again). My point is, I cant think of that many other professions where other humans are the ones out to get you. If you know of some, please share. I appreciate the good officers we have, wish we had more.

Does it matter? Dead is dead. No one forces people to work in the private sector. Everyone that goes to work freely accepts the risks of the job. Every Citizen in the US is at risk of violent crime, not just officers.

So police officers can choose not to answer calls and patrol crime infested areas?

As a delivery driver, we can refuse service.

Just like you, they were not forced into their profession.

How many maintenance folks out there would be comfortable still doing their job without Lockout/Tagout policies?

No worries. Soon there won’t be anyone to wage that war. We’ll be back to the good ole day’s of the Wild West before we know it. If you haven’t taught your wife and kids how to shoot, you’re a bit behind.

No I think the whole point of driving police officers out of the profession is the point, think about really think about it and why they would do that

My personal theory is that they want the crime and violence that way when they ultimately propose a national police force with the narrative that it will be safer and more fair people will line up to welcome it, partly because they are rightfully scared and are tired as well as well propagandized to think what the powers that be want, so think about county’s that have a national police force that’s answerable only to the political powers

That should scare you more then what’s going on in the city’s

And think about this, most of the current rank and file officers would not be down with gun confiscation but those in a national police force would most likely be just fine with it and probably groomed for it as well
