Patrick Yoes, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, just issued a warning that should terrify every American. More “people will break the law and crime will increase.” It’s all because of progressive Democrat policies. This is exactly what happens when “there are no consequences for breaking the law.”
Police can’t help
According to Yoes, you’re on your own, because police can’t even save themselves. When society gets to the point of “allowing wanton violence against officers,” then “far-reaching consequences” can be expected, including “great danger to the general public.”
The year 2021, he explains, “was an especially dangerous year for officers” and you can blame it all on “rogue prosecutors.”
The past year has been really rough on police. In fact, “one of the most dangerous years for law enforcement in recent history.”
Black Lives Matter and Antifa sponsored anarchists were directly responsible for the “increase of violence directed towards law enforcement officers.” The ongoing pandemic and useless vaccine mandate threat didn’t help.
Clearly, the constitution is nothing but toilet paper. Police have been sidelined into uselessness. Prosecutors refuse to charge “violent offenders for their crimes.” They also have a nasty habit of “releasing repeat offenders arrested for crimes who show a propensity for escalation of violence.”
Whether liberals want to admit it or not, “these rogue prosecutors are putting innocent lives at risk.” It should be glaringly obvious that “when there are no consequences for breaking the law, more people will break the law and crime will increase.” Democrats can’t seem to make the connection.
Celebrities endorse anarchy
How can John Law go out and do the job he’s hired to do, when every time cops arrest someone who happens to be Black, the officer goes to jail? Yoes blames public figures, celebrities, and social-media activists for a lot of it. “The recent erosion of respect for law enforcement coupled with public figures spewing anti-police rhetoric” have fueled more aggression towards officers than ever. A whole lot more. The network media plasters the progressive propaganda across America’s TV screens with 24/7 wall-to-wall coverage.
That is “undoubtedly emboldening violent criminals to commit brazen acts of violence against law enforcement.” Half the traffic stops they make turn into an ambush. “This past year, the violence directed at our law enforcement officers surged.”
Every officer on the force puts a target on his back along with the uniform. “When criminals are free to brazenly target police officers,” Yoes points out, “we can’t begin to fathom what heinous acts they are willing to commit against law-abiding citizens.”
It’s time to organize the neighborhood watch into an armed and alert vigilance committee. When the state can’t provide law enforcement, it’s the only option.
“As crime rates continue to rise, more citizens in this country are justifiably living in fear, constantly wondering if they too will become a victim.” Police can no longer defend themselves.
Those are “the real-life consequences of what happens when elected officials embrace pro-criminal, revolving-door policies and make decisions that put the interests of violent offenders ahead of public safety.”
