I was just listening to the radio where the only only thing they were reporting was the wonderful verdict and how the job is NOT done yet. this is a good start but its only the beginning. one by one various liberal leaders and activists were honored to recite this mantra on radio.
then one guy -idk who-said that by the time we’re done with police reform we might not be able to call them law enforcers anymore but rather peace officers .
so go figure: they don’t like police protocols, they can’t just keep the same name and change the protocols–no, the only solution is to change the name. but when “marriage” has an inherent definition which causes inconvenience to perverts, they can’t just change the term and call it “BFF” –nope. they change the definition.April 21, 2021 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm #1966885

I was going to post this on the “learning to write” page but it’s not so nice to hijack threads, especially for more discussion about liberals. so I’ll digress on this thread instead.

Law enforcement officer is a terrible term to use when referring to police.
In the USA it includes:
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) special agents
Bureau of Diplomatic Security special agents
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and United States Border Patrol agents
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) special agents
Federal air marshals
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agents
Federal Flight Deck Officers
Dept of Treasury Federal Reserve Police officers
U.S. Dept of Treasury Secret Service special agents and uniformed officers
Dept. of Interior Fish and Wildlife Service Rangers
Dept. of Interior Bureau of Land Management Law Enforcement officers
Dept. of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents
DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers
Dept. of Interior National Park Service (park rangers and forest rangers)
Dept. of Justice Federal Bureau of Prisons corrections officers
Dept. of Homeland Service Transportation Security Administration US Marshals and Deputy Marshals
U.S. Coast Guard officers, warrant officers, and petty officers
United States Postal Service postal inspectors
Federal Bureau of Prisons officers
United States Department of Veterans Affairs Police
United States military police, including the Military Police Corps, Air Force Security Forces, Navy master-at-arms, Marine Corps Police, provost marshal officers, and United States Department of Defense police
Traditionally, police were known as PEACE OFFICERS, charged with upholding, preserving the PEACE.
Among the government positions I have held in my adult life is JUSTICE OF THE PEACE. I don’t deal with criminal matters in this role, but in earlier times petty crimes were adjudicated by JPs.
So, LEO is a MODERN term for peace officers, Liberals are not changing the definition when they want police referred to as Peace Officers. Police are charged with maintaining the peace. That cannot be said of a ‘meter maid’ who is a sworn Law Enforcement Officer, charged with enforcing local statutes regarding parking.

Yes, liberalism is a disease. And it has no cure.
Here’s a dose of reality. There has always been deviance, and it will always exist. Our Chachomim told us clearly, אלמלא מורא מלכות איש את רעהו חיים בלעו. Without law enforcement, chaos reigns. No problem recognizing that policing requires protocols. But the very notion of eliminating police, or the milder expression for that, “defunding the police” are exercises in destruction of an entire culture. Liberalism is a serious, cancerous disease, and it destroys anything healthy that it can affect. We need to vote this evil out of our lives.April 22, 2021 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #1967070lakewhutParticipant

@ctl no problem. so you’re saying the guy on the radio was wrong and the correct term is peace officers. the point I’m making — which you completely missed, as evident from what you wrote “liberals are not changing the definition” — was that the exact change or changes can be made with referring to them as leos. I have no particular affinity for the term, but such a term bears no consequence on policing protocols.April 22, 2021 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1967113HealthParticipant
CTlawyer -“Traditionally, police were known as PEACE OFFICERS, charged with upholding, preserving the PEACE”
This is correct.
“Law enforcement officer is a terrible term to use when referring to police.”
No, it isn’t.
Neither calling them Cops or Police.
The reason is because the Public should be able to differentiate between Local, County, State & Federal jurisdictions!
