“We’re asking cops to do too much in this country.” Said Dallas Police Chief David Brown at a Monday press conference following the deadly shooting that took the lives of 5 Dallas Police officers Thursday night.
At the Dallas Memorial held tonight for the fallen officers, President Obama agreed. “What Chief Brown said is true…we ask the police to do too much and we ask too little of ourselves.” Said, Obama.
Would you think I am crazy if I actually agreed? Let me explain.
First, it would be great if police officers would disobey unjust laws, but the fact is, most don’t. I would go as far as saying, it’s not their fault either. They do not make the laws, they only have the choice to enforce them or not.
Secondly, how about we make things easier on police by ending the war on drugs? That would save lives of police officers who are involved in no knock warrants, drug stops, and on the border issues.
In addition, many police officers across the country have been out spoken about the war on drugs, saying it’s a total failure. “The war on drugs has been a tremendous failure,” Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland said in an interview last year with Vice News, advocating for treatment instead of prison for drug offenders. “We’ve got to rethink the equation when we’re making young people, especially young people of color in their mid-20s, unemployable because they have a high-level misdemeanor or felony on their record for drugs or nonviolent crime and have no vocation, education, or job skills.”
The war on drugs takes countless hours away from our officers and endless amounts of money from people. There is bigger issues to worry about, than what someone is putting in their own body. Save officers some time and end the war on drugs!
More important things like murders and unsolved violent cases could get more attention if we start repealing traffic laws. Traffic laws are nothing more than a extortion fee taken from the people. Around 6 billion dollars is collected each year for traffic fines. Around 41 million speeding tickets are issued each year, according to recent statistics. That means every day, 112,328 people are slapped with an average of a $150 fine. Imagine how many man hours police spend with silly traffic situations? Repeal them because police are doing too much!
As far as protection, we could make the job easier on police officers, if people had easier access to things that allowed them to protect themselves. On top of that, educating people on items to protect themselves with and how to use them, will drastically reduce police work and violence. An armed society is a polite one, where there are fewer restrictions on weapons, there is less crime. If we had fewer laws, the work of a police officer would reduce, because there would be less crime.
Furthermore, why not just remove all laws that don’t defend life and liberty? Then, police would have a lot less work to do, there would be less crime and people would save time and money. It’s a double win situation!
In addition, I myself, have done 100’s of cop watches all over Texas and I must agree with the saying, police do too much. A large majority of the things I seen had nothing to do with a real crime being committed. The super majority of things cops attended to had been non violent victimless acts.
Lastly, If police acted like fire departments, then we would have fewer crimes, fewer people dead, and fewer police dead. Police should only come when called, fire departments do no drive around looking for fires, or if there is fire in anyone’s car. They stay put until called, therefore making their jobs safer and easier.

I’d be fine if they, at most, protected citizens from force and fraud, and maybe rescued a cat out of a tree once in a while.
