Testimonial: I swore my oath a long time ago and meant every word. I still mean every word and will be proud to stand by anyone that may become persecuted or prosecuted for traveling this honorable road.
My goal in joining is to change the minds of the people of our nation. This especially includes the various branches of military and peace officers.
We need to STOP calling people LAW ENFORCEMENT and start using the term peace officer exclusively. Words have power. I would love to see our peace officer agencies change their mindset and try to just keep the peace and help settle disturbances WITHOUT force. We also need to keep our officers from becoming revenue agents of the state. These things drive a wedge between the peace officers and people. It’s time to remove the wedge.
I find it very sad that I and several good friends try and stay away from the officers in our local community. I find that we simply want no interaction with any person wearing a badge because we feel that nothing good can come of it. We feel that there is always something we can be cited for or otherwise hassled about and we simply wish to avoid the possibility by avoiding contact. None of us are criminals and I would love to see the day when a peace officer rolls up behind me and I can feel completely at ease knowing that this human being behind me is a friend and neighbor rather than a potential adversary. I thank all of you who have and are serving in an honorable way.
