F*** The Police?.. Nahhh. We need them
Many teens these days always say the term “F*** the police” and they truly believe in it. They believe that all police officers are either dirty, racist or have this goal of completely ruining them. The police are meant to enforce the law and to protect people from being harmed, all while protecting themselves. They are taught to use force if they are in danger. The police go to work everyday knowing that there are people who love and appreciate what they do and that there are people who hate them and want them gone or dead. Sometimes they are put in a difficult position and are forced to make an impossible decision in a split second.
Many people think that the police are useless and that we don’t need them. They are wrong. Without the police it would be chaos. There would be no one enforcing the law, which would lead to crimes being committed left and right. The police’s presence makes people feel safe knowing somebody is there if someone tried to rob you or kidnap you or assault you.
Something some people don’t realize is that when they’re house is being robbed, the first thing they do is call the police… THE POLICE… The same people they were saying that they didn’t need.
I understand that many people hate cops because of what some of them do. And yes, some of what some cops do is bizarre and sometimes uncalled for, but you have to understand that they make very difficult decisions on the spot. They don’t have any time to step back and analyze the situation and think about every possible outcome and different ways of handling it.
An example of a cop having to make a split second decision is when a police officer responded to a house being robbed. The police officer arrives at the scene and jumps the gate when a rottweiler ran at him barking. The police officer pulled his gun and shot the dog to protect himself. The robbery call ended up being a false alarm and the owner of the dog was furious. I believe that the dog was chained to the house but it was a long chain to allow him some freedom. The police officer made a split second decision as he believed that he was in danger. I believe he mad the right call. He was protecting himself from a dog that could have seriously hurt him. The police department investigated and cleared the officer.
Premise 1: Without the police there would be no one to enforce the law.
Premise 2: There would be no one there to stop someone from robbing you.
Premise 3: There would be chaos.
Conclusion: We need the police to keep us safe and keep things under control.
