Our Sacred Police

Last Tuesday, May 17, the Louisiana House and Senate passed a bill, by a combined vote of 124 – 3, that defines police as a protected class.

The law reads: “It shall be unlawful for any person to select the victim of the following offenses against person and property because of actual or perceived race, age, gender, religion, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry of that person or the owner or occupant of that property or because of actual or perceived membership or service in, or employment with, an organization, or because of actual or perceived employment as a law enforcement officer… first or second degree murder; manslaughter; battery; aggravated battery; second degree battery; aggravated assault with a firearm; terrorizing; mingling harmful substances; simple or third degree rape, forcible or second degree rape, or 18 aggravated or first degree rape; sexual battery, second degree sexual battery; oral sexual battery; carnal knowledge of a juvenile; indecent behavior with juveniles; molestation of a juvenile or a person with a physical or mental disability; simple, second degree, or aggravated kidnapping; simple or aggravated arson; communicating of false information of planned arson; simple or aggravated criminal damage to property; contamination of water supplies; simple or aggravated burglary; criminal trespass; simple, first degree, or armed robbery; purse snatching; extortion; theft; desecration of graves; institutional vandalism; or assault by drive-by shooting.”

The significance of the new law seems to be more symbolic than actual.

Fraternal Order Of Police

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is expected to sign the new law which was heavily promoted by the largest police union in the United States. Edwards issued a press release that said, “Police officers and firefighters often perform life-saving acts of heroism, oftentimes under very dangerous circumstances, and are integral in maintaining order and civility in our society. The members of the law enforcement community deserve these protections, and I look forward to signing this bill into law.”

In a prepared statement, Chuck Canterbury, who is the national president of the Fraternal Order of Police , said, “Talking heads on television and inflammatory rhetoric on social media are inciting acts of hatred and violence toward our nation’s peace officers. Our members are increasingly under fire by individuals motivated by nothing more than a desire to kill or injure a cop.”

The FOP has also launched a public relations campaign called “Our True Heroes” which is intended to “educate the public on the positive role that law enforcement plays in our communities.”

Canterbury has noticed that.  “public support for law enforcement is at an all-time low.”

The Louisiana law is the result of a national, public relations campaign called “Blue Lives Matter” that includes the goal of making police a protected class under federal law.

    I-TEAM EXCLUSIVE: Woman at center of Oakland police sex scandal speaks out

    The scandal is growing. At this point, dozens of careers are on the line. Officers, sergeants, and captains are under investigation for having sex with a young prostitute; several incidents when she was underage.


    This house has sho gone crazy:

    The Public Prostitutes, LA Congressional House and Senate members, only care about themselves, and getting re-elected. The FOP, Fraternal ORDER of Police, is the largest Masonic Lodge in the country, with lots of money. Money talks.

  5. Dutchboy frmo Says:

    In the new law it list “actual or perceived membership … In an organization or…”. Can this be used to protect Club Members?

  6. Pajama Says:

    As long as “civil forfeiture” and “police militarization” is allowed in this country. The police can go pound sand for all i care. Fuck them all.

    Open Comment to Mr. Canterbury and all members of the Fraternal Order of Police,

    Dear Sir,
    Perhaps you are unaware of current concerns in the United States regarding workplace violence. I hear daily about cyber bullying, teens committing suicide and other assorted problems stemming from bullying in schools.

    My employer requires me to attend events where I learn how to speak to my co-workers and clients in a respectful way. As the national president of a Police organization, I find your choice of words puzzling. When you say ” Talking heads on television …” you sound disrespectful, and your message becomes derogatory.

    If your hope is for John Q. Public to listen and thoughtfully consider your message, perhaps you should change your tone, because right now, you are batting zero.

    Could it be they pulled that rather large list of crimes right of the state police personnel files?

    Seems real specific !

    Why permit the government to be the sole source of information? The price of freedom is vigilance like the man said, but vigilance today requires proof and proof can be devastating.

    Cops putting their lives on the line is more like, too many donuts and not enough exercise. Some of the worst excuses for human beings, tubs of lard, out of shape. They got more worries about a heart attack.

    Peace officer is now an oxymoron. We could cut the murder rate in half by taking the guns away from the police.

    In my younger years, around Christmas I had to go almost underground if my kids were to have any presents under the tree. I expect it’s coming around again with shit like this playing in society…

    Brad H hit it on the head. The people who become pigs are just pussies who want to be able to have power and control and demand that people respect them because of what they *CHOSE* to do for a living.

    Fuck the pigs and fuck their demands for respect of any kind. I piss on them and their pussy demands.

  17. Lunchbox Says:

    Blue Lives Matter……………..What a crock of shit. In my own opinion all lives matter and these clowns are no more special than me or anbody else. All americans should have the same level of protection. That is a bogus law.

  18. USNDragon Says:

    Let what Chesty wrote really sink in. The numbers don’t lie. These fucking idiot Cops love to say “We put our lives on the line everyday” It is basically Horseshit. The vast majority of Pigs have a nice easy shift, maybe write a few tickets to keep money rolling in then have a nice lunch, a little paperwork, then shift over. No danger to speak of. On the rare occasion they are involved in what they say is a “live situation” they are trained from the beginning of their careers to escalate it quickly and then shut it down quickly with the maximum Force available. Fucking Assholes. They say the first order of business is to go Home alive. What they are really saying is we will accept NO RISK in our jobs and will shoot first and lie later. If the Video shows them to be wrong they just bring out the tried and true “I was scared for my life” Bullshit and continue on their way. Add in Fines and Civil Forfeitures and you clearly have a Government/Law Enforcement Racket.

    Welcome to the police state.we are no where near the bottom of this spiral.

  20. Brad H Says:

    For several years running, l.e. didn’t even make the list for most dangerous vocations.

    Logging, roofing, construction, and truck driveing consistently top lists of dangerous occupations. How many of us disgusting biker types fill these positions? I’ve done all of them at one time or another just to put gas in the bike and beans on the table. Nobody ever lamented my place in society. We never whined about lack of public support.

    I guess the point is if you’re only doing a job for the respect of the public at large, maybe you have a personality disorder and should try another line of work.

    Being in law enforcement is a choice. Do not demand respect for doing it, especially from those of us who have been negligently abused by you. Don’t believe legislation is going to earn you respect either. Just the opposite is true.


  21. Chesty Says:

    1.22 million full time sworn law enforcement officers in the US in 2015 according to the FBI.
    42 were killed in the “line of duty”
    1 in 29,000 police officers were killed
    National murder rate is 4.5 murders per 100,000 in 2015
    1 in 22,000 civilians were murdered
    You are 30% more likely to be killed as a civilian than law enforcement “putting your life in danger” every day.
    But who are we to argue facts?

  22. Phuquehed Says:

    Fuck the pigs…the only good ones are those not breathing.

    The cops…the largest criminal, corrupt ‘gang’ in the US of A.

  23. Gandalf Says:

    Don’t these people always talk about taking responsibility for our actions? WTF? “Talking heads on television and inflammatory rhetoric on social media are inciting acts of hatred and violence toward our nation’s peace officers.”
    “public support for law enforcement is at an all-time low.” HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO RESPECT THAT?

  24. Drifter Says:

    They have to keep business as usual?

    If not for cell phone video, 47-year-old disabled veteran Douglas Dendinger could be going to prison — because of an apparent coordinated effort by Washington Parish, La. cops and prosecutors who falsely accused him of battery and witness intimidation.

  25. Oceans Says:

    what a fucking crock of shit if Blue gang where doing there jobs with a little respect and dignity towards the community that they took a oath to serve and protect things would perhaps be balanced…. unfortunately its an another piece of bullshit legislation to designed to protect there corruptible culture. The public had a right to question the integrity of this bill and to wonder why such a misaligned piece of legislation is passed… its consequences well be far reaching as this law exonerates bullies with badges from any questions of morality…
