The officer on the left is my father.
To any person who hates all police, calls them “pigs,” or believes that every cop is a racist homophobic violence driven citation-quota-meeting scumbag with nothing better to do than kill minorities and overstep their bounds… I invite you to tell those exact same things to my father.
There are good police officers. There are ones who have dedicated their adulthood to upholding truth, honesty, integrity, equality, diversity, liberty and justice by the work they do. When you make blanket statements against any group based on the actions of an individual within it, you are inherently going to be wrong about many things. And just like a bad waiter, or a bad customer support representative, or a bad actor, the good ones often go unnoticed and unappreciated because doing things correctly is the norm, whilst mistakes and abusing power aren’t and therefore have more memorability for people. The next time you decide to blindly hate all police I invite you to remember my dad. Think before you speak. I’d hate for you to look like a fool.
