- Johnson talked about something that happened Wednesday after officers responded to what he called a “simple traffic accident” that turned ugly.
“A subject who was under the influence of PCP attacked a female officer. Viciously pounded her head into the street as her partner was trying to get him off of her. This attack went on for several minutes,” Johnson told the assembled dignitaries.
“As I was at the hospital last night visiting with her, she looked at me and said she thought she was gonna die. And she knew that she should shoot this guy. But, she chose not to because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news.”
There you have it – an officer knowing she could legally use deadly force, but consciously choosing great bodily harm – or death – to herself over having to go through the manufactured outrage of a criminal community out or control. And this is a 17-year veteran.
What kind of service does the “community” think it’s going to get when this is the first thought going through an officer’s head?
We’ll tell you exactly what they’ll get – nothing. It’s simpler to disengage and clean up the aftermath of a “community” with zero impulse control, zero pride, zero sense of personal responsibility. A “community” that has accounted for 80% of the shootings and homicides this year and nearly 85% over the past decade.
I blame President Barack Obama for this completely. From the beginning of his first term he began signalling which ‘side’ he would be on in all Black on White or Black on Police conflicts.
A new term ‘Law-fare’ (i.e. a form of warfare using the law as a weapon) came into existence during his administration and has been used to jail, impoverish, ruin lives and strike fear into Barack Obama’s enemies; the Whites and the Police. And the Media and the Congress has done nothing to combat it, instead they are fanning the flames. Cities are burning. It’s getting worse.
