How YOU can easily help the Police and our
Nation and beyond...
Do you want to help the police?
Almost all, maybe even all, of the men and women who joined the police
departments or became law officers in some other branch of civil service, did
so because of a true desire to help. They wanted to make a difference!
Unfortunately, they stepped into a system that is flawed. Stopping crimes,
criminals, is addressing the wrong problem.
Wrong because that is the wrong end of the cycle of crime and wrong
because they do not improve the criminals. The current system makes them
worse, they become hardened criminals.
So what can you and I do about this?
A question for a question! When you see an officer of the law, they should be
called “peace officers”, how do you look at them? Do you think “Pig” or
something else that's unkind?
When you see an officer coming up behind you in the rear view mirror, do you
think “Awesome!” or do you think “Oh shit” or something else equally profane?
I believe this would make a great survey. However, not having a survey and
results, I can only look at the press releases or PR of the various law
I can not think of any agency or group that has any type of an image, but a
bad one! Most are worse than bad, they are terrible! Ogres living off our taxes
and harassing us or worse!
But lets go back to why they got into law enforcement, to do good, to help.
They set out to do that. Unfortunately, as they drive about they get sneers,
As individuals, they don't deserve this treatment. Even though the
“department” is criminal, most of the officers are not.
Governments are not suppressive, only a few politicians are. It's the same with
But it takes only a few leaders, bad apples, to ruin the whole group.
But what can we do about it?
A simple thing is to change our reaction to the presence of a cop, sheriff etc.
They aren't all bad.
When we see an officer, treat him with politeness, respect. Treat them the
way you want them to treat you! Try smiling at them. Force yourself to smile!
If enough people smiled at the police, they might stop thinking we are all
criminals! It's going to take some work.
If you happen to be a criminal, it's very hard to smile at someone who is about
to catch you. So stop being like a criminal! To be or not to be is a personal
By the way, looking worried and looking like you have something to hide, that
you don't belong, is a dead give-a-way that you are a criminal. Try smiling!
You might be able to change your life by honestly smiling!
We all need to try projecting perfection into everyone we see. Do this
especially when you see someone who has dedicated their lives to serve and
protect, the cop.
Give them the same benefit they should give you: Innocent until proven guilty!
One more thing!
This works with everyone!
I'll give you a bit of data that you may not believe is true. Everyone you meet is
doing the very best they can all the time. Though this may seem questionable,
it is true, because a person can only operate off the data that they have. If
they have incorrect data, they will do things that do not make sense and
possibly create harm. But this isn't really them and creating harm is likely not
So smile at the person passing you on the street!
How many times do you “not see” the other person? And if you do see them,
do you disrespect them by ignoring their presence?
Stop doing that and start conversations, or at least say hello or nod, or do
something to acknowledge their presence.
Again, as you go through your day, wish perfection into everyone regardless
of anything. Just know there is a goodness there and your good wishes might
help the goodness in that person win!
You are powerful!
You are powerful beyond belief. This is a fact despite the possibility that you
have been fully convinced that you are powerless. That's not true. Your
wishes, prayers, actions to achieve good are powerful!
Were we not powerful, man would have already perished.
So help keep the human race going.
Spread some cheer, smile, start conversations.
