I would like to believe that the police really do want to “protect and serve”, but we all know that particular phrase is just lip service to what we have been experiencing all over our great country for years now. I came across a news article that I could not let go by because of the real threat that surrounds us, and most people have become numb to….the police are not our protectors, and in most cases, they believe every single one of us is criminals that they have not yet caught doing something illegal. How many of you would agree with that statement?
I left the Seattle area because of the Seattle Police staging SWAT teams during the SeaFair Parade. That was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Since where do we need SWAT teams staging during a parade that is mainly put on for toddlers and small children?

..and now they look like this; with military training:
Now read this and remember, they really do believe we are all criminals. An effort to get this particular police officer fired is a worthless effort; we need to change the view police departments have of the general populace, and we also need to keep Bambi from making guns too expensive to own. Remember, then the only people who will be armed will be the guys above and the real criminals.
