A great piece from a retired officer who “gets it.”
Obama Hates Cops
My reply to “Thoughtful Sarge:”
“Amazingly well done (as usual) you tackled a difficult topic for cops — we want cheerleaders and not leaders who may call us to reflect, confront our “shit” and then have the nobility and courage to improve that which we do. The same applies to our ranks. We need leaders who have the courage to challenge us and make us better people and better cops.”

I served over 20 years as the chief of police in Madison (WI), four years as chief of the Burnsville (MN) Police Department, and before that as a police officer in Edina (MN) and the City of Minneapolis. I hold graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and Edgewood College in Madison. I have written many articles over my years as a police leader. After retiring from the police department, I answered a call to ministry, attended seminary, and was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church. After 25 years leading two Episcopal Churches in Portage and North Lake, Wisconsin, I now serve as Associate Pastor in a growing, dynamic, and Spirit-filled Lutheran congregation in nearby Mazomanie.
