The thought police are alive and well and their targets are our police officers and other public servants.
Our example comes from Orlando (the one with the REAL Orlando airport) and it’s from the Police Citizen’s Review Board.
An Orlando officer last year reportedly commented on social media that the kneeling NFL football players were “overpaid thugs.” The cop was suspended without pay and now the Review Board wants him fired!
Wait just a minute. What did he say that was deserving of termination? For that matter what was deserving of suspension? I would submit to you that nothing was.
His was an opinion on a social issue, that’s it. The Review Board disagrees. So be it. It has no impact on his job or how he performs it.
We don’t need the thought police after our police. For if we allow this, we will have no police officers and our thoughts are next!
