Peter Rosenberg Pretty Much Sums Up The Alton Sterling Shooting In My Eyes
Felt like I needed to say something about this rant that Peter Rosenberg went on this morning on Ebro in The Morning. Literally watched it five times and it gave me chills every time. The guy couldn't have been more right. I feel like most professionals want others in their field to do well at their job, and if somebody screws up you let it be known. What kind of person wants to go out for work every day and be hated because of somebody else's fuck up.
Every other profession holds it's workers accountable for the work that they do. Why is it that police officers refuse to point out when somebody clearly fucked up, I literally have never seen that happen before. Just say that something went wrong, it's honestly the only honorable thing you could do at this point. Just say they acted too fast and broke protocol, is there like some kind of cop code none of us know about? Consequences are had when a person screws up at their job, any job. And no, paid leave is not a consequence.
It was honestly cringeworthy how much of an idiot that cop sounded like on the phone trying to work around the question. Everybody saw the video of the Sterling shooting, it couldn't be more clear the officers here broke some type of protocol. Have some honor and respect for the people that actually lost something here and just say you guys fucked up, it's the least you can do.
