Don’t fight with the police


Excellent article that touches upon the issue that is becoming more and more crucial with time. I fully agree with erinjcs that Police have a job to do and they need to be respected. We must honor and respect our protectors and try to be of help to them whenever we can rather than hinder them in any way.

Re: Please don’t taser me, I have heart problems

It seems to be happening more and more that people think it is okay to fight with the police.  It’s not!  The police have a job to do and they need to be respected.  We should be standing up for them on issues like this – since the only reason they even have to use tasers is to protect society from people who cannot be controlled in other ways.

Why should a police officer have to weigh in with uncontrollable troublemakers and risk getting walloped or injured when they can use another safe mechanism that allows them to keep their distance?  There are hundreds of police officers that are killed or injured on the job each year while on the job protecting our cities/towns because of individuals that think that it is okay to resist them.

Tasers save lives and do…

My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.

    Never,ever resist arrest or pat down searches…. that’s how YOU get hurt..;-)

  2. these days these clashes are on a rise, in a sharp speed. Guess both sides will have to practice self analyzation and caution.

    In India police have lost its credibility years ago, people have lost their faith in law almost completely so they are tangling too much with cops- that is hardly desirable or good but in India police department requires a serious transformation- in and out!!!!!

    • I agree with you all the way Sharmishtha my friend. The clashes are occurring with an alarming frequency. Some sense needs to prevail in people here, they need to show more respect for the police officers commands. Since here when a police officer stops a person it is for a good valid reason. I hope things get better for India in this area since India is a great and biggest democracy in the world. Hoping for the best for the part of the world where you live my friend. Take care and God bless.

  3. If people would respect officers, there would be no need to use a taser. Unfortunately, there are a lot of ignorant people in the world. Thanks for sharing this post, Samina!

    • I agree with you 100% Jill. Sense needs to prevail in people since it leads to an unpleasant incident where things could end up peacefully. Respect and honor for our protectors at all times is the call of the time. Thanks Jill my friend for your valuable input. Take care and God bless.

    I feel this is so disrespectful to fight, at any time, in any circumstance. I do feel that police must also try when it is a peaceful gathering, at least, to keep their respect of others, too. It is sometimes scary to hear the police get accosted. Until I saw a policeman throw a man down, wearing only shorts and bare feet, I had never personally seen someone in a position of authority do an injustice. I hope that the public realizes how special all officials are, that it is a VERY rare occasion when the misuse of justice occurs. This was a very thought-provoking post, Samina. Thank you for reblogging the fine writing and good support of police officers, both men and women, needing respect! Robin

    • Thanks Robin for sharing the experience you witnessed, but such incidents do not happen too often and one does not even know the background story to the incident. Usually when people do not comply with the command of a police officer they get into trouble. Thanks for such kind words about the post. It is no doubt a fine piece of writing and addresses a very crucial issue facing us nowadays.Take care and God bless my friend.

      • reocochran says:

        As I agree, I emphasized that this is a VERY rare occasion and one must always respect the police. It is always important to mention the balance in command and the way we respond. Only a few in all areas of life, medicine and law included, have their flaws. I feature real stories with some positive and some negative attributes. Thanks Samina for always being positive! Smiles, Robin

  5. Samina, I firmly believe that respect is a main key in any relationship. When respect is shown from both parties, situations get resolved faster. I am yet to meet a disrespectful officer. Kudos to all who protect us.

    • Thanks Elaine for such a lovely comment. I agree mutual respect is a must. People must realize police officer is trying his best do do the job of protecting us. If we cannot offer any help in such a situation, hinderance is extremely objectionable. You take care my friend and God bless.

  6. What a world this would be if we had no use for weapons such as these. Thank you for the post, Samina!

  7. Ştefania says:

    We should be thankful and respect police officers, because they are sacrificing their personal lives for our peace. God bless you.
    Have a wonderful day, saminaiqbal27! :)

    • I agree with you my friend Stefania. We cannot even count our blessings for having such great police officers who do so much for us. We can at least show our respect and love for them. Take care and God bless you my friend.

  8. What an excellent article. Thank you for sharing sweetie!

  9. Thanks Diana my friend for such kind words about the post. I will check out your new post. Thanks for letting me know. You take care and God bless.

  10. What a great website! I am a retired police detective in New Jersey, USA. Other than websites for or run by police departments, I have never even seen a website in the US that is actually in support of police. Most people think police work is like ice skating . . . looks very easy until you try it. I wish you well in your blogs, I will follow them religiously. Please let me know if you would like me to guest post anything, and feel free to check out my website & blog. Best, Joe P.

    • Hi Joe, Thank you so much for such kind words about my blog. Coming from such an accomplished writer like yourself, I feel very honored by your visit. Yes, my blog for Police support is the only blog of its kind as you have noticed. I am a free lance writer and I have decided to dedicate my writing to support the Police which is my passion as I feel we owe so much to our protectors who put their lives on line to protect us. Honorable Commissioner of RCMP, Canada was kind to personally write to me to encourage me in this noble mission. I have posted his letter to me on the page at the top of the blog. I am fortunate to have 1, 036 followers in one year of blogging which is very encouraging. I would feel very honored if you would do guest posts on my blog. I would be delighted and very thankful. Thanks once again for your visit and I have browsed through your blog and I am very impressed. I have to return to it to follow and to comment. See you soon. Take care and God bless.

      • Thank you for your kind words. I am just a regular guy, no different than anyone else. Years ago I had dealt with the RCMP, and I have to say they are a class act. I also belonged to many forensic identification associations, and met many officers from RCMP. However probably the funniest encounter was when I was looking for a fugitive who had family in Nova Scotia. I called and spoke to an officer assigned there, explained who I was looking for, and he quickly replied, “No, he’s not here.” I asked him wasn’t he even going to drive by the house I had been told he was hiding, or ask around with neighbors, interview people, etc. He replied, “This is Nova Scotia. Everybody knows everybody!” He was however fascinated by crime here in the US. A few weeks later I mailed him a copy of our major daily newspaper here in New Jersey, the Asbury Park Press. When he received it, he called me and asked me if the crime in the paper was for the past month. I told him, no, that is just what happened yesterday! So, you are very lucky to live in that beautiful country you call home! Best, Joe

      • Hi Joe. Thank you so much for sharing the story. I enjoyed reading it and its true most of the communities in Canada are so close knit that everyone knows everyone. I am lucky to be living in Canada, the greatest country in the world. But I have to say if Canada is my heart, US is my soul and spirit. My hubby got all his education in California. The border of US is just 45 minutes from where I live in Vancouver, BC. I do most of my blogging at my vacation home in US. My blog speaks for the Canadian Police and US since culturally both countries are so close to each other. All the best. Samina.
