Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office: Be a first responder
The response, of course, is predictable. And every bit as priceless — though for a different reason: it reveals the extent to which cowards will go to turn their cowardice into an outraged virtue. Thus, if you peel away the sanctimony, you get to the heart of cowardly “anti-violence” wishcasting, laid sadly bare: if you can’t be trusted to lie to us about how safe we are, those who’ve surrendered their responsibility in exchange for phony moral posturing tell us, then you shouldn’t have the job. Because we can always find someone willing to sooth us by telling us there is no such thing as the Bogey Man, and even if there were, highly-trained, unflinchingly responsible law enforcement officers in crisp clean shirt and loaded utility belts will always be there to arrest that monster, or gun him down if the need arises, before he’s able to hurt you or anyone dear to you.
Lie to us, Nanny State. Tell us all will be well. Because perception is reality. And it’s simply unfair to tell us that they world can be a dangerous place, and that we need to be prepared to accept that reality. After all, we pay taxes so we don’t have to think about that.
