Somebody needs to say it, so I guess I will. I've been black 32 years on this earth! 32 and not once have I felt targeted by police, not once! Because I have NEVER done anything to be targeted! I was cognizant of my decisions & that kept me out of trouble! This narrative that...
...everyone black is so afraid of police is a fallacy! Most of the people screaming it have never even had a real encounter with police! Never! But for those who put on the uniform daily, we don't have the benefit most times of knowing who hates us. I mean hey, citizens are just
that until they become more. You see us in marked cars, marked uniforms so guess who's the easier target. Not the citizen. The media driving this fear narrative, the Democrats driving this narrative, the celebrities are all irresponsible as hell and need to be held accountable.
Problem is they don't care about what's right, they care about what's popular and what makes money. But I tell you what, I walk around as a black man without that uniform on and don't worry if I'm coming home. But the second I put it on, my wife, my kids, and I worry. So you tell
me where the fear really should be. I don't hate anyone, but plenty hate me because of my career. I pray the officers in this country remain vigilant and go home, just as I would anyone and for those celebrating death, there's a special place in......
And correction, people have been targeted by police. Let me never say never, but it is not happening as this wide sweeping pandemic as they try to make it. And definitely not in the majority of situations that use to push their agenda

My city is on track to eclipse 300 homicides this year, the record was 228. Not a one of these homicides this year were by police, & very few by a white person. In my city alone, we've had more innocent kids killed in shootings than "perceived" innocent criminals in the entire
country, by far! Hell probably totaling the past for years of officer involved shootings nationwide. I personally see a lot of this damage which is why I don't get "fake mad" at what the media directs me to be mad at. Because that same media doesn't get mad about the victims
we see on the daily. The kid outside playing, the mom escaping an abusive relationship, the man shot because his car was too nice to not take. We have to fix us first, have to. It's insanity to want change without changing us. Fix the self hate! #silencetheviolence

Here's some truth for you, and I don't care who feelings get hurt by this. I speak on the black community because I'm black and I want us to do better. There is a deeep rooted hate problem within the black community that prevents progression more than any white person, any cop,
any other entity can ever do. I am a prime example, and everyone sees it on a daily basis, but it doesn't stop at me. I don't hate anyone black, but you see other black people spew hate at me, why? Because of my profession? But it doesn't stop there, we hate each other for
reasons that make absolutely no sense. Look deeper into this hate and you'll understand why we lead the nation in homicides year in and year out. Those 10 homicides a year by police could never touch the 7000 plus we take out yearly. But how dare police or the white man do

Love my guys, so much #blackexcellence in one picture! 3 cops, 2 firefighters, 5 USAF Members, 1 Computer Programmer, 1 Ins Agent. 9 men that never made excuses about the hood we started in, just worked to be better, and this is exactly why I surround myself with them! #novictims
Too many people make excuses about bs for where they are. They blame any and everybody they can for their struggles. But if you knew what some us made it from in one of the worse cities in this country, you'd know why we don't care for these bullshit excuses.
There's no time for it, either put up or shut up. Miss me with the victim mindset because those closest to me never had it. We believe in this thing called accountability, but it starts at home. Oftentimes that's where the ball is dropped. It's up to you to Pick it up and run

One of my biggest pet peeves on the job is when I'm walking past a kid and their parents says to them, "you see that cop there, imma make him arrest you"

I always try to make it a point to tell the child that is not what I'm here for. Your parent will get you as they should....
I'm here to protect you and take away truly bad people.

Why do I hate this? So many parents do it, and it instills fear in their children. A fear that should not be present. And I've seen some of these kids grow up with that fear and immediately feel they have to run, or even
fight when they see police even when they do nothing. Why am I talking about this? Because one of the most influential people in the black community is doing EXACTLY what these parents do. But on a larger scale. Imagine your kids idol telling them over and over that devoid of any
