But you are comfortable belittling them.

Just as there is a difference between those in law enforcement and those who do not choose the profession.

Sir, may I point out that no one in this thread has spoken one word that belittles the military. No one has insulted the military. That is all coming from you, your projections.

I've worn the uniform of our Country, proudly. I have known and do know one hell of a lot of cops. Never, in 40+ years of working with LE, never ever have I heard one demean, belittle, insult, or degrade members of the military.

You have a myopic viewpoint where everything outside of the military is not anyway as important as you are.
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
