You Will Be Shot…


You Will Be Shot…

So apparently there is some controversy over a police officer in Florida saying that if you pull a gun on him or his men and women in his department, that they will not hesitate to shoot you. I’m sorry, but I do not feel that this should be a problem, I am happy that some of the officers have this attitude lately. I am not happy for the police who are shooting innocent people without knowing the situation, or while “thinking that the person may have had a gun,” but I feel safer knowing that some police are not just standing by allowing people to pull guns on them and anyone else in the world. Yes, there has been a lot of innocent people who have lost their lives, and I am sorry for that, but I’m talking about the true police officers who put the citizens rights and safety above their own on a daily matter; I am talking about the police who have not lost sight of why they decided to go into the public safety field to begin with, to serve and protect, no matter the shade of anyone’s skin. However, I do not think that I want them to just stand by and be killed unnecessarily either. If they are in direct danger, why can’t they be honest about protecting themselves? Why should he have to apologize for saying that? Would You just stand by if this happened to you or your family? Or would you just let someone aim a gun and shoot you or your children and family? He did not say that he was just going to go around killing innocent people, just that if you pull a gun on him or his other coworkers you should plan on being shot, simple as that. I would think that the only people who would be offended would be the ones that would be thinking about doing some heinous crime, and then why would the police care if what they had to say offended them anyway? If you plan on pulling a gun on an innocent person, regardless if it is a cop or not, then why should you care if that person is saying that they will not hesitate to shoot back? Am I wrong for feeling this way? I feel that every life is of the most importance, and we should treat everyone in that same manner, no matter the shade of skin.I also feel that no matter the color of skin of the police that pulls you or me over, you and I should act as though it is a serious situation, and as I once heard Kevin Hart say about a talk with his loving late grandmother, we should all “act like you got some sense,” and wouldn’t there be less of a chance for things to go awry? I mean sure, we all know of the horror stories of police using their status to do dirty things, but they too are only humans. Just as civilians, some are good, and some are not so good, the only difference is that they have a badge. But sill human none the less.
