The key witness in Darren Wilson's defense (presented at the Grand Jury because the prosecutor was actively trying to sabotage his own case) was almost certainly making all of it up:

The murders today don't change the fact that policing isn't an especially dangerous job.

As opposed to what? Flipping burgers or being a walmart greeter?

How many other jobs is there an increased chance of being beaten up, shot, or stabbed while on duty, as well as regularly coming in contact with potentially violent criminals?

I'm not saying its the #1 most dangerous job, but anyone who thinks police work isn't dangerous is delusional (and probably also has ZERO law enforcement experience)

.

So I originally posted a fairly strong and direct personal attack, telling you what you can do with your comment. But I deleted it out of respect for the MODs.

However feel free to PM or email me and I'll be happy to tell it to you directly. I'll re-up my premium membership simply to accomplish this if needs be.

I'm really at loss for words of how to respond to the stupidity in this comment without getting banned.

No one is denying that what happened today is tragic. A kid lost his father today, that's a tragedy. Violence is never justified, especially not the senseless kind of violence that happened today. Statistically, policing is a dangerous job, but not as dangerous as most people think. The sort of mentality that leads people to believe that police are serving in a war zone is what leads to the type of over zealous policing that gets a lot of black people killed. What it seemed like bigjohn was doing was trying to justify the actions of the police in cases such as Eric Garner and Mike Brown, by using this recent shooting as an example of why we need over zealous policing. We already see right wing provocateurs trying to blame the shooting on the protestors that are fighting against police brutality. That's what I have a problem with.

As far as fatalities go, policing (in 2012) barely made the top 15 of most dangerous jobs. So in comparison to the other jobs with higher rates, it's not relatively dangerous. I don't think you deserved the ire from the two posters above you.

So your just going by "fatalities."?

You're not going to count the percentage of suicides, divorce rate, mentally burned out in 5-10 years because your dealing with scum of a population every single day. Or the fact that the very next traffic stop maybe the last moments you have on earth.... so...yeah policing is an extremely easy job.

Every 5 or 6 months I end up in this cesspool end of the forum.... see ya in another 6 months

You know one last thing about this post. I would have loved to have a day off to protest something but unfortunately I had to go to work.... these protesters who I'll go out on a limb and say most AREN'T gainfully employed needs to ne taken care from shmucks like me.... so I feel real bad as to how they were treated.
