Oh yeah right, that’s a good plan: take away the perks of the cops.
Sex with prostitutes in Michigan isn’t legal, but until Wednesday, undercover police in the state couldn’t be prosecuted for sleeping with streetwalkers. Police agencies deny ever using the law or training officers to do the horizontal hula with hookers.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed into law on Wednesday two pieces of legislation repealing an exemption that protected on-duty undercover law enforcement from prosecution for having “penetration” sex with prostitutes.
“Every day the brave men and women in Michigan’s law enforcement community work tirelessly to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of all Michiganders,” Snyder said, according to MLive Media Group. “These bills help ensure the ongoing integrity and accountability of our law enforcement system by clarifying what actions officers are exempt from while performing their official duties.”
The bills, House Bill 4355 and Senate Bill 275, were sponsored by State Representative Gary Glenn (R-Midland) and State Senator Judy Emmons (R-Sheridan). The State Senate approved its bill unanimously, but some House Democrats voted against HB4355 because an amendment that would have included other sexual acts besides penetration failed, according to the Detroit Metro Times.
No police agency opposed or supported the legislative effort, claiming no officer ever used the immunity or was instructed to have sex to further an investigation.
Right now, there is virtually no reason whatsoever to be a cop in America. It is glorified animal control, it does not pay well and at any time you could be put on trial for doing your job and at least have your entire life destroyed – possibly get thrown in prison.
So instead of guys like this joining the force:
You’re getting guys like this:
I’m not going to go full white communist and argue that cops are fundamentally evil in some way, but here’s the deal: in a white country, it is a respected profession where you are actually helping people.
The Norman Rockwell/Andy Griffith version is idealized, but it is idealizing something that did exist. Cops did used to be paragons of the community, they used to be taking care of school children and helping old ladies get cats out of trees. The worst they dealt with was standard drunken violence.
All the way up through the “civil rights” era, most officers would never see a shooting or a murder, and if they did, it would be something you can easily understand and process because it’s happened since the beginning of time: a family member killing another family member over something complex related to long-running family issues, or men killing each other over women.
This meme is accurate:
Note that the kid in the original is white.
Being a cop in the modern crack cocaine nigger rampage era is a dirty and largely thankless job, and that has led to the ranks of police departments being filled with the lowest sort of people.
You cannot turn people away, so you get try-hardy sleeve-tattoo dickheads who just want to abuse power and that further causes the situation to spiral downward. You are hiring ruthless mercenaries to risk their lives for what amounts to a very basic wage.
Now you’re taking away their right to have sex with prostitutes – I don’t think it is going to increase the quality of the applicants.
