In a powerful, nearly 1500-word long column published last week at LawOfficer.com, Yates poured his heart out over the growing disrespect for law enforcement that hes seen as the decades have progressed.

We are living Atlas Shrugged.
I was just thinking: John Galt.
Ayn Rand didn't anticipate that The Strike would start with law enforcement.
That thin blue line is all that is keeping the leftists alive.
just had fox news on briefly- Eric Shawn was on- totally convicting the police in public opinion court, and his black guest sitting there nodding along- Eric making the claim that the cop was ‘running on adrenaline, and didn’t follow police procedure as a result’ and said the taser isn’t a ‘deadly weapon ,therefore, they had no right to shoot him’ blah blah blah
I thought i was watching CNN-
Oh, they will be back. The moment law abiding Americans start to organize to protect their communities from the mob, the police will be back to clamp down on that. Also, who will enforce the coming second round of lockdown orders? Nah, some departments might see some short term losses, but the system is not going to be without a means of enforcing what it wants.
How many innocent people will die because of the leftist media and politicians’ dishonest anti-cop, anti-American, pro-criminal, pro-riot propaganda?
I understand the cops’ feelings in blue areas where the politicians stab them in the back, but they are wanted and appreciated in safe, orderly conservative red areas.
The thin blue line gets thinner.
The mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops.
Kids used to be taught respect and now its cool to be disrespectful.
Supervisors used to back you when you were right but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.
Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us.
The media used to highlight the positive contribution our profession gave to society and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy to line their own pockets.
There used to be a common respect among criminals. If they got caught, they understood you had a job to do but now its our fault they sit in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions.
If someone attacked a cop, they were seen as such. Now we martyr them and sue for millions.
We used to be able to testify in court and we were believed. Now, unless there is video from three different angles, no one cares what you have to say.
The Left has been working on that since the 70s, driving Normals out of the Police Force with their Social Engineering.
Hes a little tweety bird.
I’ve been saying it for at least 2 weeks now. The Rubicon has been crossed. Cops are THE active target now and being presented as Public Enemy #1. As the cops wake up to this new reality, their ONLY motivation will be survival...for themselves and their families. Hence they will now “self-stand-down” more and more. We’ve already seen it with them abandoning police stations so the BLM/Antifa Anarchists can burn them down. This will be the “new normal”. Right thinking people see what a threat to society this is. Eventually, even leftards will face the reality when the Frankenstein they created turns on them so they call 911 for help and all they hear is “We’re sorry, but no one is available to take your call. Please call back again later. Goodbye.” Only when the leftards get their long deserved reckoning will this change for the better. Lots of carnage in the meantime. Plan accordingly.
Maybe they should resign in Democrat controlled areas?
There is a wave of crap hitting the US and corporations are jumping on board. The cops are still holding the line for the most part. I cant believe it after all the president has done to improve business. The disloyal corporate bastards are betting that Biden wins and the whole country will do the Pelosi knee bend. Yup they are betting on Biden. The cops will go with Trump.
Man, you got that right.
Without the coppers the Law of the Jungle will prevail.
Team Deplorable has a playbook for that set of rules.
Was in the office of an Obama Elector during his first run for president. This gentleman, a young democrat from a lifelong democrat family and an elected official at the county level, had prominately displayed on his desk a copy of Atlas Shrugged.
Atlas Shrugged is anathema to everything the left desires, I knew then that just like all collectivists, “the only reason collectivism hasn’t worked is that it has been improperly executed by those in charge”, that under Obama the left was going to use Ayn’s Plan as their recipe for success.
They believe through the media and the greedy self interests of those who believe in America and Free enterprise that they can keep the productive members of society chained to the wheels of production while the Collectivist Progressives bleed them dry, laughing all the way to the bank.
We will see their abject failure as the Red states recover quickly as the country returns to life and as the Blue states decide to “live free or die” as their political leaders go down in flames. We will also see a groundswell of support for law and order although this will not come without some weeping and bashing of teeth.
This will be the “Summer of Tough Love” before the elections.
Pray for our nation.
“We used to be able to testify in court and we were believed. Now, unless there is video from three different angles, no one cares what you have to say.”
Years of testilying will do that.
The man who drove drunk, assaulted a cop, stole his weapon and fired it at him, was shot because of racism is an actual argument that people are making right now, because we live in the dumbest era in human history”
The ‘behavior’ of Citizens toward police officers is absolutely worse than disgusting. We’re suppose to be on the other side of the filth and criminal element that’s out there.....officers have their hands more than full dealing with druggies, theft, nutcases and the lowest animals of society nobody would bring home for dinner! But when society backs the criminals rather than the officers you will you’ll get the same treatment as the criminals by officers.....there is no difference.
