We have been bled on, vomited on, some have even been urinated and crapped on. personally, after Vietnam, ( You too, did your service, right? ), Some stayed as consummate servers. After 32 years in law enforcement, I have been shot at, ran over by motorists ( involved in 27 automobile accident ), fought so many people, I’ve lost count. You people who continually slam these heroes, never experience what they do, and never will, Not even close.
During my profession, I have had broken clavicles, scapula, knees, back, hernias, all while attempting to continually stay fit, so WE can protect You and yours. Actually, they deserve more.
I was a member of the bargaining representatives, along with my best friend and brother, Kenny Gretler, who started the 3% @ 50. You want service ? You get it. But either these heroes ( me and mine) or you and yours are going to have to pay for it. Those I know have already done that, many in Blood.
We had to fight for everything we needed. We were selected because of who we are.
Mike , was a motor officer, officer/sergeant. Do you understand what that means ? ( I think not ) how many of our people have been lost, again protecting you and yours, by riding motorcycles? I know, do you ? Again I think not.
You can tour our Academy, and observe our memorial, which has the names of every fallen officer. You should drop to your knees and thank them for their service. And the number is more than most states and climbing. And, when you’re sleeping at night, it will continually climb.
As a sergeant, I investigated so many complaints that were REDICULOUS. One complaint was because the officer said ” have a nice day sir ” really ? ….. .I’m sorry, I’m probably boring you. And you being who you are…( probably a taker ). There are only two types of people on this globe. GIVERS AND TAKERS, And you enjoy slamming that which you do not know or understand. The facts are facts ..the mismanagement of our government, is the reason we are here. Not our heroes.
The California Highway Patrol, like most law enforcement agencies, have a lengthy selection process, ( When I and my friend and neighbor, Steve Mackie, applied, there were 22,000 application ) with only 500 selected, we have and will continually select the best givers out there.
Now, just one more fact, I made about 70 to $ 110,000 a year, with overtime. I left alpha beta where I made much more than $850 a month) Now retired ( Mandatory due to injuries) after 10 years, about $ 70,000 a year…and my family is thankful. Why ? Because I survived: every traffic stop, every traffic collision, every roadside investigation in the rains and storms every hospitalization, every surgery, (A total of eight), and every moment where I was mandatory dispatched to your disasters.
Rodney King riots number one and two.
San Francisco riots
Yuba City flood
San Diego fires
Rocks bottles thrown
And of course your and America’s condemnations and complaints
And many others I have forgotten.
While you were fast asleep. Ready to wake up to a happy loving family.
We were missing ours…..your welcome.
I am 60 years old. When I was 18 the military told me, my life expectancy was five years after retirement. The CHP told me the same thing, but I’m still here, reading and listening to the sewage that the American people are dumping on servers of America.
And finally : the fire personal I have known, and worked with ( Firestone LA ) are more Heroic than most of YOU Americas can imagine. … Think about it. While you and yours are running from the disasters, we are running in. The yellow journalism in America, like you, must have an agenda. I am still watch you.
Like many of the police and fire department personnel I have worked with over the years, we have earned every penny.
Oh and Yeah, I have two nephews and a niece in the United States Marine corps, protecting you and yours. Do you have any idea what their pay is? Well trust me, it’s not and never will be what they deserve. But, that’s ok, we know what we got into. Do you ?
In closing, I would like to say…shut the fuck up, fuck you and horse you came in on, fuck off, your mother sucks donkey dicks. Faggot, and more insults than you can even think of. Oh and one …I remember, you N.N.N.M.F., BUT THESE ARE YOUR WORDS,TO PEOPLE THAT SERVE YOU. MY words are… God has blessed you by living in a country of people that are willing to die for those that appear to hate them, you. My auto biography can be see on unchainthetree.com. Love for our planet and everything God create. I hope you find peace. Namaste.
