Earlier this month, we posted a story on some recent crime enforcement that one of the Milton Police Officers performed over a course of a week.
Some of the laws this officer enforced were DUI's as well as wreckless driving among other things. He was removing dangerous individuals off the roads that you and your families frequent. Individuals willing to do your family harm by their actions.
Over all, it was simply a good story letting the Milton constituency know that our officers work dangerous and long hours to keep our loved ones and families safe while putting their lives on the line 100% of the time.
Just today, however, various comments came in on this particular post. Some calling this individual "overly aggressive" making claims that he "slammed me on the hood for no reason." One very omniscient individual
even went so far as to state that Milton needed to " fire your cops, we don't want them."
With all of this incredible knowledge, I am truly at a loss as to why Milton isn't paved in gold with angels singing as you enter this hallowed city! I mean, who can compete with such intelligence and higher thinking?
It should be stressed, that while I have been on ride-alongs with our police department, I have yet to ride with this officer. However, any such claims can be confirmed or disproven by simply requesting a video tape of such stop. One would think these individuals would have shared their accusations all over the media and sued for millions if such claims were true. Then again, certain habits are known to encourage memory loss.
As we all know, this editorial will receive input from the same folk. Not to worry, oh victimized ones, as I have some suggestions that should make you smile!
I propose that the City of Milton create a "user fee" system when it comes to using the Milton Police Department. That way, all of these "innocent victims" will no longer be bullied by the terrible MPD.
So, when your wife, mother, or sister decides to take a shower and no one is home and a man enters your home with a knife to rape your loved one, I have no doubt your use of the Force will let you not only know about this evil violator due to your seeing things before they happen, but you will also be able to battle him not with guns, but with your lightsaber. Yes, I know you are faster than the average police cruiser too. After all, you are YOU!
In addition, any time a driver is speeding or under the influence near your loved ones, these terrible not needed officers will know to look the other way by the "I'M PERFECT-BACK OFF!" sticker on the back of your loved one's leased vehicle. Of course, we do request that you do not call 911 and ask that your loved one who is splattered all over that tree and sidewalk be picked up by those in public safety. I do recommend, however, that you make sure a shovel is in your vehicle at all times...I have heard that blood and other internal body tissue can stick to surfaces over a period of time. Then again, you can wait for the coyotes, opposums and racoons to come out that night. And who said you weren't "Green"?
I, however, am very willing to pay for the protection the Milton Police Department provides to insure my family is kept safe. Officers, feel free to patrol the streets I drive or pull me over at any time if I am breaking the law. Laws, by the way, that were created by elected officials that taxpayers voted for. Search my vehicle or home whenever you deem it necessary! I encourage you to do the same for my loved ones as well. However, I do request that you return the favor for those that are willing to do myself and my loved ones harm.
Bottom line is this, the more citizens continue to complain about these men and women who are putting their lives on line for us, the sooner they will leave for employment that actually appreciates their sacrifice.
Then, citizens will get the sterotypical donut eating corrupt cop who would no sooner take a bullet to protect a citizen or enforce the law than those who are so willing to attack our officers blindly to identify themselves. No doubt that such a lesser officer would not be opposed to bribes to look the other way as well.
I encourage anyone reading this article to not believe or agree with what I have written here. What I do encourage you to do is to request a ride along with any Milton Officer of your choice. See what these individuals deal with day in and day out that the general media chooses to ignore. After which, we would love to hear your opinion on how terrible they are.
Maybe then, some objectivity might actual come in to play. One would have thought that we learned about the justification of support from the blind eye that was given to our military returning home from Vietnam. Then again, society is so willing to forget...

In Milton, You Are A "Bad Cop" If You Do Your Job.
