Heroic San Bernardino Cop: 'I'll Take a Bullet Before You"
There's a lot of hate directed at cops today (read OPINION: This is What Happens when You Malign Cops), ironically enough from the same leftists who prayed the San Bernardino killer was actually avid-FoxNews viewer/NRA member Billy Jo Bob Johnson. Sometimes, we just don't get the narrative that we're looking for. Calls to mind that famous expression of "if wishes and but's were fruits and nuts, everyday would be a Merry Christmas."
Sure, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but that's beside the point.
The San Bernardino Shooting just didn't go the way leftists desperately wanted it to. Shooters were Muslims (not angry white men) and the cops weren't racist bastards shooting unarmed black people. Take this cop who tells a bunch of scared people in an active shooter situation, "I'll take a bullet for you."
In the video, an unidentified male officer tells people to walk forward with their hands in front of them.
“Go, walk to that deputy and keep your hands where I can see them,” he said.
He tells the group to stay calm and “relax,” as the group shuffles toward a deputy at the end of a hall.
“I’ll take a bullet before you, that’s for damn sure,” he says. “Just be cool, ok?”
No one knows the officer's name.
This might be anecdotal, but in my experience, many cops share the same "I'll save you" mentality. Kind of the main reason they became cops: to protect and serve. They want to save people. They want to be heroes. They dash into danger and put their lives at risk to save yours. Many Police Officers are, at their core, good and decent people (read Ex-Conveict Thanks a Cop for Changing His Life...) What's special about the cop in the video above is that he was caught on camera saying it. But chances are he's one of thousands. Still, every time a story like this is caught on tape, #BlackLivesMatter are all like
The next time your over-privileged, leftist friend share their latest anti-cop tirade on Facebook, share this story and remind them that while they're attacking police from the comfort of their mother's basement (or their campus safe space), there are real people putting their lives on the line every day to protect them.
Just don't expect a particularly positive response.
