A Police Sonís Message to Memphis City Council

A Police Sonís Message to Memphis City Council
Quote:
I am tired. Yes I am just a teenager, but I am tired.

I am tired of watching my Dad worry. I am tired of watching my Momma cry. I am tired of watching you sit up there in your fancy suits and make decisions that destroy the lives of other human beings. I am tired of watching you take from the pockets of others to line your own.

I am tired of watching you insult the intelligence of the citizens of this city. You seem to think the citizens of Memphis all got their education in one of the worst school systems in all the United States. Well not all of us were educated in Memphis. I am tired of watching the very men and women who protect you and your property being treated like the dirt beneath your feet. Who do you really think you are? Let me answer that for you.

You are men and women of very little character. You are men and women who care more about prospering businessmen than those who keep the citizens safe and free from harm. You are men and women who walk on the backs of others to secure your financial seat at the top...
Worth the read...it's not just about Memphis.

Thank you young man. Very few people have the balls to speak such truth.

Now, if the politicians would only listen and take what he said to heart, maybe we would have a better society.

He does an admirable job of telling the truth, but. You can't argue with fools. They wont listen.

Please tell him, "Thank you," for raising a good kid.

Well said young man. It's good to see a young person who can think for himself and not follow the politically correct BS crowd.

Then there are peole like the one who commented on the original article (WTFO??). I quote:

"This teenager, if it even is a teenager and not an intentional propagandizer, is utterly confused. They have fallen for the lies they have been raised with regarding the necessity of over-financing police departments. I feel sad for this society that believes such lies."

Mass exodus out of Memphis. We recently hired a former Memphis paramedic and one of his buddies has already applied. The guy we hired is top notch as a LEO and as a paramedic. I'm glad we have him.

Right now, probably one out of three have active feelers or applications out. Unfortunately, right now I am at an awkward position, where I have too much time invested to quit, but can't quite afford to retire yet (even though I am eligible).

I spent a bit of time in Memphis years ago, and vowed to never return.
