I agree, I agree, but I also know how it is.
Down here in Texas we are ‘backwards’ as far as the progressives are concerned. But even here, several cops I know have to watch what they say very carefully. All the police department higher ups, and sometimes even the union higher ups, all sing from the same book. And the poor guys on the bottom better soon learn they better not cross the higher ups, as they have many ‘negative’ ways to reward such candor.
There’s smaller sheriff’s departments where people are still able to stand up strong. But most of the big city police departments have become cabals that do not tolerate much dissent from ‘the plan.’ By the way - the money hasn’t been printed that would get me to be a cop in a big city police department!
