This is the world that the criminal-coddling, police-hating mainstream media hath wrought.
A Birmingham, Alabama, police detective who was pistol-whipped unconscious said Friday that he hesitated to use force because he didn’t want to be accused of needlessly killing an unarmed man.
“A lot of officers are being too cautious because of what’s going on in the media,” said the officer, who asked to remain anonymous for the safety of his family. “I hesitated because I didn’t want to be in the media like I am right now.”
Details of last week’s incident in the Birmingham enclave of Roebuck remain sketchy — such as how did the suspect get the officer’s weapon — but the six-year police veteran said he didn’t shoot the man who attacked him during a traffic stop because of the outcry surrounding a spate of police shootings nationally.
“We don’t want to be in the media,” he said. “It’s hard times right now for us.”
There’s no small amount of irony in CNN reporting this story, and the attack’s callous aftermath, which saw sick criminal supporters take mocking photos of the unconsciousl officer instead of attempting to help him. After all, they’ve done so much to fan the flames of discord that have bought us to this point, with their serially dishonest portrayal of lawful self-defense shootings by police officers and citizens alike.
CNN, of course, isn’t any better than the rest of the mainstream media, whom have without exception chosen deviant sensationalism to create a market of outraged but dim-witted crime supporters.
The media is targeting the police and gun owners alike with false narratives that portrays violence as inherently evil.
Violence is not evil.
Violence is a tool, as Tim Larkin so eloquently and profoundly explains in the TED talk above.
Violence is a tool of last resort, but once it must be employed, no other tool will suffice. When good people are denied the use of this tool due to absurd, illogical, and extreme political correctness, civil societies fall.
We have let the radical progressives of the mainstream media control the narrative and the culture for too long.
As a direct result of their attacks on those who would defend civil society—including law enforcement officers and gun owners—we have a world where law enforcers fear enforcing laws, and the dregs of society feel emboldened.
If we don’t stand up for our law enforcement officers being unfairly attacked you can rest assured that they will come after us next.
