The Rebellion Against Law Enforcement
Christians beware when you go against God's servants. Did you know that very holiday season, law enforcement officers from across America help kids from disadvantaged backgrounds with Christmas gifts, dinners, shopping sprees, etc. We hear almost every day where a police Officer responds to an emergency involving an unresponsive infant or child. The officer administers emergency CPR until medics arrive, and his actions are credited with saving the child's life. Their answers are always the same, "I just did what I was trained to do."
Those are just two examples of law enforcement officers serving and protecting our communities. Stories like the above don't always make the headlines or the evening news. It's too bad, because these are the police officers we encounter almost every day.
I'm pretty ticked off at this anti-law enforcement movement started by the black lives matter groups. Every single day of the year Officers across America are doing things to help those in need as well as saving lives but we hardly ever see those headlines. Instead, we see headlines about players in the NFL taking a knee to protesters who criticize law enforcement in light of events in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York. These protesters have made threatening remarks about police officers.
And what really gripes my goat is seeing these anti-police protesters encourage disruptive acts that damage property and wreak havoc on every day, law-abiding citizens. I like what the Black pastor told his congregation, "Do not get involved with black lives matter, they are not only ANTI COP'S BUT ANTI CHRIST." Don't think for a second that this movement is Black America. They are only a small group of opportunist. Rosa Parks and Martin L King Jr. would roll over in their graves if they called black lives matter a Civil Rights Movement. Those two fought for equal rights and they did it peacefully and Christ honoring. That generation suffered police brutality, church bombings and murder by the white supremacist group known as the KKK in their little white hoods! There were a lot of injustices done in those days.
Let me be clear: Every American has the right to protest peacefully. And when officers break the law, they should be held accountable. However, those protesters cross a line when they endorse violence, particularly violence toward law enforcement.
Protesters in New York City were chanting, "What do we want? Dead cops!" as they marched. This disgusting chant was shouted just days before two NYPD officers were murdered. The outrageous statements made by those protesters must have been demoralizing to law enforcement officers across the country, the vast majority of whom are hardworking public servants who do not have a racist bone in their bodies. My message to our law enforcement is this: These protesters do not speak for most of America, which stands by you.
We are a nation of laws, and the role of law enforcement is critical. The courageous men and women who risk their lives in law enforcement protect our safety and defend the rights of those who seek peaceably to assemble, to protest, and to worship.
Law enforcement officers deserve to be treated with respect and should not be the target of threats and violence. I'm really irritated at liberals and progressives for not taking a stand and criticizing this violence. He should be a voice speaking up for law enforcement.
Don't forget to thank a law enforcement officer when you see one. I think it's the least we can do considering the sacrifices our police men and women make every day. They are for our good and they are Gods Servants. God Bless!
