Back in the day the (most) police were honorable and fine Americans who citizens really could count on “to serve and protect” – but not more! Now it’s more like “to monitor and control.”
Parents – educating your child to this sad truth just might save them BUT checking little red dots on a map of people whose crimes probably did not involve children and who have most often been crime free (not even a parking ticket) for DECADES certainly will NOT!
Read the article below – WARNING: You might actually learn something useful so this information is not for those who prefer fake news.
“In 2015, after a year-long investigation, the Associated Press revealed that in the six-year period from 2009 to 2014, about 550 police officers had lost their badges for rape, sodomy and other types of sexual assault; and a further 440 for possession of child pornography and other sex crimes; or sexual misconduct such as propositioning citizens, sexting juveniles, or having consensual but prohibited sex while on duty.
That number was “unquestionably an undercount because it represents only those officers whose licenses to work in law enforcement were revoked”, wrote the AP. “Not all states take such action”.
The perpetrators included state and local police, sheriff’s deputies, prison guards and school resource officers (no federal officers were included in the survey). Victims included motorists, schoolchildren, women in legal trouble, police interns, and prison inmates. About one-third of the de-certifications resulted from incidents with juveniles.”
ATTENTION PARENTS: If you really want to protect your children then those labeled as “sex offenders” are the LEAST ones you should be concerned with. You would be better off watching your local police and priests as they are more likely to abuse (or even kill) your kid! Use some common sense for a change.
