Here is a typical cop for you
He is such a good cop that he made lieutenant
But deep down inside e was still who he was
According to the women’s advocacy group the Purple Berets cops are 2 to 4 times more likely to be domestic abusers
Not only that, but they are 6 times less likely to be prosecuted
“” Domestic violence is 2 to 4 times more common in police families than in the general population. In two separate studies, 40% of police officers self-report that they have used violence against their domestic partners within the last year. In the general population, it’s estimated that domestic violence occurs in about 10% of families”
That is not a hero in blue that risks his life every day to save the public
That is a bully with a badge and a gun who is a threat to anyone he encounters
Bullies are notorious for being cowards
If they are not positive that they can win they become frightened
And if a cop becomes frightened and ” Fears for his life”
We all know what happens then
