With no mention of ‘The People”, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick came out on Wednesday to place Law Enforcement on a higher level of importance than the people he serves. Isn’t this the way it all started in the first place? Police officers are taught that ‘us first’ mentality in the academy, to not trust us and take control of every situation to include bullying, physical force, and to kill.
With the rise in cell phone cameras and social media, there has been an abundance of video proof of their authoritarian and sometimes barbaric nature. The root of all these problems is once again, money, the constant push for issuing citations, arresting people for victim-less and petty offenses is draining the incomes and breaching the peace of their families. The money collected then funds the triad of protection for themselves, the prosecutors, and judges that are handsomely paid by the money stolen from the citizenry. These police academy’s need to revert back to their true oaths and honor the nation’s founding documents. Refuse to violate the rights of the people, refuse to enforce unjust and unconstitutional laws and hold accountable the ones who do not. The pedestal should be reversed, the citizens are the ones needing the recognition, not the police, they are hired and paid by the people to ‘serve and protect’, the initial design of this profession from its inception. What if Lt. Patrick came out and said this rather than propping up one and not the other, but instead he like other politicians talked down to ‘The People’ and not directly to us.
The Lt. Governor addressed this to his Texan subjects, “Start calling our officers sir and ma’am all of the time. It’s a show of respect they deserve. Every time you see an officer anywhere, let them know you appreciate their service to our community and you stand with them. If you are financially able, when you see them in a restaurant on duty pick up their lunch check, send over a dessert, or simply stop by their table briefly and say thank you for their service. Put their charities on your giving list. If your local law enforcement has volunteer-citizen job opportunities, sign up.”
He continued with “All lives matter and we need to put an end to this violence against law enforcement now or we run the risk of fewer men and women willing to go into the profession and families insisting their spouses change careers. Police officers are judged 24/7, 365 days a year for their entire career. One mistake can get them sued, fired or killed. I want to remind Texans and the rest of our country that these brave souls are the thin line between a country of law and order and a society of total lawlessness where no one is safe. I challenge all Texans to think about how under-appreciated our officers must feel, how dangerous their jobs are, how they leave their families everyday not knowing if they are coming home and more importantly, if there is anything you can do to help make their job a little easier”.
Their job would be a lot easier if they were in fact ‘peace officers’ and not on constant ‘cat and mouse’ surveillance on its people, and the repetitious ‘on the prowl’ approach with their patrolling. That right there is a 4th Amendment violation within itself, with the right to privacy and being secure in your person and your home. The citizens living under these police state tactics by these revenue seeking pirates and repeated wrongdoers are the willing targets for consolation and apology. When the Legislators and Police start putting the people first, then, and only then will we have peace.

Anyhow we can just vote no on November 3rd on every question. Esparza should encourage his readers to simply vote no. Besides it isn’t a secret that people are growing to dislike Dan Patrick because people are finding out he knows nothing about the duties of being in state office. I am even encourage people to vote no on every question on the ballot. Esparza is correct about one thing Dan Patrick does not care about the people and he wants all your dollars going to Charter Schools and Vouchers and under the vouchers he wants Private Schools to dumb their well run system and put into place dumb down curriculum that now is in Texas Schools. Dan Patrick should resign and retire and move back to Baltimore. Besides tell Dan Patrick he can divert his income into a Texas based corporate account and when he returns to Baltimore he won’t be paying Maryland anything.
I got news for you Esparza. Texas people favor cops over our people, because cops are just us in the uniform. The only difference is that they accepted living their life in a military lifestyle so that we wouldn’t have to live in anarchy. But if they continue to be attacked we will have to accept that we will have to switch to military lifestyle as well to help them keep the anarchy at bay. Either you are with the cops or you are against us.
“One mistake can get them sued, fired or killed.”
“how they leave their families everyday not knowing if they are coming home”
How does that differ from most other jobs?
Police would likely get a lot more respect if they respected the citizens.
I am in agreement with what Patrick said.
