Survey: Over 80% of Police Officers Would Not Recommend Their Child Go Into Law Enforcement.

Earlier FOP President said a record number of Kentucky Police Officers retiring because “they just feel like they’ve been abandoned”. A while back, a man in the new NY protest area was caught on video denigrating police officers in a tirade.

A woman off camera says “I can’t believe y’all are getting paid to sit there like fcking idiots.” The shirtless protester then chimes in “Your hairdresser has to go to school for longer than you do. Half of you don’t even have a college education to be out her making demands about the people…when you can’t even read a fcking history book.”
