    57 Buffalo police officers resign from special unit in solidarity with two officers suspended for allegedly pushing a 75-year-old man.

    Here is video of LAPD telling off LA City Coucilwoman after they said there would be cuts to the force.

    There will be a lot more cops calling it quits and I'm not sure that's not part of the Dem plan.

    We were already losing people at a significant rate. This week I had an officer hit me up about a retirement question. Others have left for slower and/or better paying agencies.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t want to be a patrol cop these days. The pressure from below is bad enough, but when your chain of command doesn’t support you, it’s over. They send those guys out there to be screamed at and attacked with no ability to act.

    Can't blame them. It can't be fun having leftist MSM and politicians calling you horrible names. Now they all want to fry your ass if someone trips and gets hurt within 10 feet of you.

    They are a small majority. We appreciate you guys and know you can't blame everyone in uniform for something done by 1 person.

    Some time ago, I posted to the enforcers should be careful. I mentioned that history has shown that the politicians turn on their enforcers when convenient. They always find new enforcers and purge the old. They never want their enforcers to get too much power.

    Can't blame them! If you don't support me and mine - see ya! No police - let's see how that works out. Do any of these politicians ever ask why we have police at all? What is the history of police forces in the U.S. Hello? :rolleyes:

    No can do.

    Here it’s against the Taylor law. It means that calling for it will put leaders of such actions in jail. The membership has to pay 2 days of pay every day they are out, and the lawsuits will bankrupt the union.

    Then the real hurt begins. Ask the transit union what happened when they went on strike.

    If it’s going to happen, it will be a wildcat action.

    It came close with the deaths of Liu and Ramos. But I don’t know about now.

    Some big academy classes from twenty years ago are about to retire. These guys are just trying to hold on until that magic year.


    The majority of the department will soon be in the newer retirement tiers then. 25 years to full retirement for the new tiers. I don’t think guys are going to stick around as much.

    For the past 2 months they were using them to threaten us with their BS lock down orders. Now they are throwing them under the bus.

    Talked to a relative of mine who just retired from LEO last year.

    He said he'd been through 4 riot seasons like this and that was enough, couldn't be happier being retired

    My FIL said in '15 he would never have joined the police department in today's climate, and he also was happy to be retired these days

    The reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

    10 years from now, you'll have seen the rise of privatized para-police firms, as more folks leave public policing and take better jobs in the private sector. Businesses and enclaves that can afford it will hire these firms for protection of assets and people and eschew involving public law enforcement unless absolutely necessary, and the undermanned, undertrained and unsupported local law enforcement husk that's left will be relegated to protecting public buildings and responding to whatever crimes are prioritized by politicians in the less affluent areas only, sorta like San Francisco but with 1/4 the cops and a longer list of crimes they don't pursue and calls they don't respond to. To put it bluntly, we'll be going back to the really old school days prior to professional policing.

    That's exactly the plan.

    And the blue cities and states will fall further into the abyss. Bon voyage!

    I've mentioned several times over the last few years over in CopTalk that there needs to be a nationwide blue flu for a few days. Let society just police themselves, solve their own messes, and see how they like it.

    Maybe we'll see...

    Recently in Baltimore the people were complaining about the police. They did not want the police to enter certain areas. The police complied. It did not last very long.
