I Stopped Caring Today

I Stopped Caring Today

Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man.

I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those
I serve.

I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has
become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted.

I stopped caring today because parents refuse to teach their kids
right from wrong and blame us when they are caught breaking the
law.

I stopped caring today because parents tell their little kids to
be good or “the police will take you away” embedding a fear
from year one.

Moms hate us in their schools because we frighten them
and remind them of the evil that lurks in the world.

They would rather we stay unseen, but close by if needed,
but readily available to “fix their kid.”

I stopped caring today because we work to keep our streets safe
from mayhem in the form of reckless, drunk, high, or speeding
drivers, only to be hated for it, yet hated even more because we
didn’t catch the drunk before he killed someone they may know.

Nevertheless, we are just another tool used by government
to generate “revenue.”

I stopped caring today because Liberals hate the police
as we carry guns, scare kids, and take away their drugs.

We always kill innocent people with unjust violence.

We are called bullies for using a Taser during a fight, but are
condemned further for not first tasing the guy who pulls a gun
on us.

And if we do have to shoot, we are asked “why didn’t you just
shoot the gun out of their hand?”

And when one of us is killed by the countless attacks that do
happen (but are rarely reported in the mainstream media) the
haters say, “Its just part of the job.”

I stopped caring today because Conservatives hate us as we are
“the Government.”

We try to take away their guns, freedoms, and liberty at every
turn.

We represent a “Police State” where “jackbooted badge-wearing
thugs” randomly attack innocent people without cause or concern
for constitutional rights.

We are Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Rodney King all rolled into one
lone police officer stopping to help change an old lady’s tire.

I stopped caring today as no one wants us around, but instantly
demands answers, results, arrests, when a crime takes place.

If a crime isn’t solved within the allocated 60 minutes it takes CSI
on television, we are inept, incompetent, or covering something
up.

If we do get “lucky” it was just that and everyone with a Facebook
account can post wonderful comments of how “they” would solve
the case and how “we” are not nearly as clever.

I stopped caring today because a video of a cop six states away,
from a department that you never heard of, screws up and forgets
his oath of honor, thus firing up an internet lynch-mob of cop haters
even though 99% of us work twice as hard not to end up in the news
and to still be “the good guys.”

We are “militarized” because we wear body armor and kevlar
helmets when shots are fired or rocks thrown at us and carry
scary looking rifles even though everyone knows that they
are easier to shoot and are more accurate than a handgun or
a shotgun.

I stopped caring today because the culture of today’s instantly
connected youth is only there to take and never give back.

To never accept responsibility for ones actions, but to blame
everyone else instead of themselves.

To ask “what is in it for me?” versus “what can I do for you?”

To idolize gangsters, thugs, sexually promiscuous behavior,
and criminals over hard work, dedication, and achievement.

To argue that getting stoned should be a right, yet getting
a job or an education is a hassle.

To steal versus earn.

To hate versus help.

Yes, I stopped caring today.

But tomorrow, I will put my uniform back on and I will care again.
