  1. Cops are mercenaries and should not be trusted. It has been a long time since cops got cats out of trees. They only serve corrupt politicians and theirselves. I see a cop and I am on edge and would love to put a bullet in their skull.

    1. Oh, that’s just brilliant. Name and email address attached to a comment about killing police officers. Now look, I’m a bit wary of trusting police, but that’s because I am wary of trusting anyone at all, and by definition, that would include them, and yes I am a bit disappointed in the law enforcement community as a whole, but I am disappointed in most professions too. Society has constantly let standards go. Set the bar low, then when people fail to meet that low bar, set it even lower for them. This is especially true of politicians, elected “Leaders” who could barely lead a pack of lemmings off a cliff. Having said that, there are plenty of good guys in law enforcement, guys who actually put some effort in to doing their jobs as professionally and as well as possible. Guys who set their own bar high then try to exceed that. Those guys have my respect, those guys deserve everyone’s respect. Media doesn’t talk about them much though.

    2. Think before you post so carelessly as your description is of DEMOCRATS and yes, there are a few cops that are Democrats but most care more about you then you about them.

  2. a breath of fresh air! this is fantastic news! the Calvary has arrived- thank you KPPA for boldly and proudly being a force for humanity and righteousness with your blessings for Mike Honold!
