NFL “Controversy” Explained

Posted on Sunday, February 4th, 2018 at 9:26 am    

There is a lot of controversy surrounding the NFL right now but its important to understand what is really going on here.  It’s important to know that a lot of politicians have hijacked this issue and twisted the story to fit their own political agendas.

And some of these politicians are full of baloney!

If you want to know the truth behind the “controversy”, please read this Sports Illustrated Article article and the video linked below. This video featuring Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin and the SI Article give the issue the context that it deserves.  Please educate yourself about these important issues.

For the record, EVERYONE in my Law office is PRO-LAW ENFORCEMENT! But being Pro-Law Enforcement does not mean we are obligated to support Bad Law Enforcement, or Bad Cops or a Broken Criminal Justice System that incarcerates more people than anywhere else in the world.  Don’t believe me? Click here to see for yourself.  And being Pro-Law Enforcement doesn’t mean we are obligated to support bad or irresponsible people that, for whatever reason, should not be in uniform.

If you are an honest law enforcement officer or married to one, you know there are people, in every department across this great country who have no business being a policeman, and are a disgrace to the uniform.  Be honest!

At Roberts Wilson, P.A., We support professional law enforcement officers who love the Constitution and respect the rights of their fellow Americans. And, we will fight like hell for those officers who are wrongfully charged  or accused with a bad shooting or wrongfully sued for a bad arrest. Period.

However, bad cops need to find something else to do. For a variety of reasons, I see similarities between Law enforcement and Education.  Neither institution should ever be a safe place for bad people, or people who consistently perform poorly at their jobs, to enjoy job security. No, No, No! This statement should not be controversial. At least not for people being honest about the state of affairs in our country.

The “drug war”, for example is something that really looks more like a jobs program to me than anything else. The way it’s been carried out and it’s complete and total failure is atrocious. The destruction the “drug war” has caused to American families across America is far worse than the scourge it “purports” to correct. Drug addiction is a medical issue. Cartels and drug dealers stay in business because of bad drug policies not because of addicts.

Does anyone really believe it’s reasonable or actually God’s will that a father and husband, who is caught with “too much” Marijuana, should be taken away from his family and put in the penitentiary.  Surely, this is not God’s will.🙏

I want to live in a world where we all stand behind the Good Cops, support Criminal Justice Reform and End the Drug War!  There are always going to be plenty of drunk drivers, thieves and violent domestic abusers to keep Good Professional Law Enforcement Officers very busy without our government having to manufacture crimes to satisfy the very hungry prison industrial complex that is continually lobbying our politicians for more prisoners.  Save that for another day!

Be Safe Everyone!  We Get Justice!
