We are in the midst of a war against police, and it just seems to escalate more every day. The Black Lives Matter hate group, along with the liberal media, have manipulated many Americans into thinking that police are the problem. Even though deadly force is only used in less than 1% of arrests, police are still made out to be the villains.
In this anti-police climate, Paul Harvey’s “Policeman” has never been more relevant. Harvey explains perfectly how we are asking so much of our police. As he says in part of the video below,
“If the policeman is neat, he’s conceited; if he’s careless, he’s a bum.
If he’s pleasant, he’s flirting; if not, he’s a grouch.
He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.
But…If he hurries, he’s careless; if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis.
He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.
The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being “brutal”.
If you hit him, he’s a coward. If he hits you, he’s a bully.”
Paul Harvey recorded this in 1970, but with the suffering police going through today, this video is so appropriate. I ask everyone who reads this to PLEASE share it with a friend or family member. We need to stand behind our heroes in blue now more than ever.
