‘You won’t need to abolish us – we won’t be around for it’: Why many police officers like me are quitting the force

By: RT, Jue 10,2020:
Travis Yates is a serving police commander in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a doctoral student in Strategic Leadership, a graduate of the FBI National Academy, and the author of “The Courageous Police Leader: A Survival Guide for Combating Cowards, Chaos & Lies”. This article was first published on lawofficer.com

The nasty words we, the police, get called all the time have now turned into rocks, bottles and gunfire. It’s over, America: we are leaving.

This is the hardest thing I have written.

I grew up in a law enforcement family. My father worked his way up to the rank of Captain at the Fort Smith, Arkansas, Police Department. As a kid I remember going with him on Friday to pick up his check and I was in awe of these super heroes he worked around.

My dad sacrificed a lot and so did my late mother. Whether it was the week-long surveillance or wiretap or chasing drug runners across the country, he gave it all for my family and worked plenty of extra details to never let our family be without. Some would call that privilege but where I grew up, it was called hard work.

The kids at school thought it was cool what my dad did and while he sometimes asked me if anyone gave me a hard time, they never did. There was respect among all… even the kids in shop class.

I didn’t grow up wanting to be a cop but one fateful night, as a freshman in college, that all changed.

I went on a ride along and my life’s journey would never be the same.

After four years of college my dad wanted me at an agency that respected that education so I moved to Tulsa (Oklahoma) at 21 years old and never looked back.

I didn’t know anyone and all I knew was what I saw my dad do, work hard and treat people with respect. I saw a lot of other cops working hard as well and doing all they could to keep the community safe.

27 years has passed and if you would have told me the condition of law enforcement today, I would have never believed you.

It’s not that law enforcement has changed for the worse but everything around it has.

The mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops. Kids used to be taught respect and now it’s cool to be disrespectful.

Supervisors used to back you when you were right but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.

Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us.

        In case you didn’t notice during the protests and looting Idiot, the police were useless for residents as usual.

    You’ve been enforcing Corporate policy on those lawfully not subject to it, which means you violated your oath, and if you ever desired to do good, you should have become Sheriffs, not SHERIFFS or POLICE.
    Those of you who would abandon the patriots because of a few snowflakes are equally dishonorable. Go be a Sheriff or go to hell.

  • Dave Stephens

    You crooked cops should have arrested these Governors and Mayors instead of civilians.

  • Fake News = The False Prophet

    This article illustrates what the real problem has been, which is governments using the police as their enforcers for lunatic policies. The ‘drug war’ was instituted to protect criminal elites revenue streams. And the police went along with this insanity which results in every increasing addiction, cartel gangs, deaths, societal breakdown and multiple other undesirable outcomes. Then there’s the Quotas they went along with. Then there’s the petty tax raising via traffic tickets and the like. Then there’s the known criminal elements at the higher levels of government and you ignore them. Not only were you often NOT protecting your communities but by going along with all this nonsense law you have placed us ever more in danger along with yourselves. The eventual conclusion of this going along to get along was always designed to bring us to the point we are now at. The people have also been a large part of the problem. But the real problem always resided in the stablishment. And that still needs dealing with.
