SHAKE THE THUGS
Regardless of what your management may say to you about being nicer and kinder to the people you deal with on the streets, remember that we are fighting a war. It is not as intense as a battle between two countries but slowly, we are taking casualties. The latest, an LAPD officer who was sniped at from behind and took a round to the head while sitting in his cruiser.
Too many thugs are running around the streets of our country feeling untouchable. When you put your guard down, you will be attacked. Nothing could be done by the 26 year old, father of two LAPD officer. You can't hide from a sniper.
What needs to be done is a cooperative measure between all police departments nationwide. The thugs in our cities must be dealt with as the enemy. Every gang member will stab you in the back the moment you turn away from them. They have ZERO respect for life and a negative respect for property.
It is time to crack down HARD. We must show them that taking one of ours will result in the same manner a country responds to an act of terrorism..... by striking back even harder.
When you saddle up tonight, think about the LAPD officer who had no chance. Think about his kids, his wife, his mother. Think about the gang member who is sippin a 40 Ouncer right now celebrating with the homies. See every gang member in that light tonight and get mad - because you or I may be next.
Prevent it - Shake them down and show NO FEAR.
