How can people support the military but hate law enforcement?

I've always wondered what it is about some common people. I often see and hear people supporting and congratulating military personnel. This is rarely if ever the case for law enforcement.

I am NOT taking away anything from the military. I have nothing but respect for them, both my father and grandfather are veterans. I know that they are often very far from their families and often in dangerous conditions.

What I do not understand is why people treat law enforcement so differently. F*ck the police, giving the middle finger, etc. why isn't this same behavior exhibited to military personnel?

Law Enforcement are heroes in their own respect. They're the ones who protect you here on the homefront. They're the ones who are going to protect you, your family, friends and neighbors.

Law Enforcement are the heroes here in the community, please remember that they also are willing to sacrafice everything everytime they put on their uniform.

not all of them are heroes - as we've seen in Uvalde's past, which include drug busts and inappropriate behavior, there are some cops that are suspect and sometimes use the law to their advantage, even to the point of brutality and false arrests. Don't try to deny it.

The military can't throw you in jail because you did something to piss them off. The military can't write you a ticket because they're having a bad day and feel like getting even.

I'm not sure about the military either... all they do is the will of the rich and perpetuate an unjustified war. A lot of people over there think that WE are the terrorists.

why do you even waste time responding to this punk? If you've truly gone through all that you have, you don't have to defend yourself

Well, punk.

it looks like the only battles you've fought have been on a call of duty videogame.

either that or those mortar rounds shook your head up quite a bit.

it looks like you wouldn't pass junior high english, much less qualify to be a uvalde pd explorer.

No doubt that there are many Law Enforcement officers who can be considered by the community as Heroes. But here in Uvalde? There is no comparison between the Military and Law Enforcement. 1. Discipline and corruption - no comparison. 2. Those who condone, watch and do nothing about police misconduct and abuses- no comparison. 3. Integrity and character in times of peace and in war - no comparison. They have to do a complete overhaul of their practices, ways and behavior to make a comparison with the Military most especially in the leadership, City and/or County.

It's simple, cops can and do abuse their authority. The cops here in Uvalde are ridiculous. I'm guessing when they quit treating everyone as potential criminals their respect from the community will go up.

Yeah you ungrateful bastard, you wouldn't fair good either in elementary school considering you can't even capitalize proper nouns. How dare you disrespect someone who served our country . You coward.
