The first thing that went through my head when I saw this was “grow up.” The person named is a candidate for Chief of police. I have no clue if the campaign did this or a supporter but seeing there is no derogatory comments, I would say it was a supporter.
Somebody thought it was funny to show a movie seen of a cop pointing a gun and saying to vote! (or what, your going to shoot me?) Hello! This is a Chief of police campaign, does this mean they support police brutality? If I come to this town should I be worried about intimidation from the police for just stopping there to buy something? Why are old movie about the south and dirty sheriffs keep coming to mind?
I’m tired of really stupid campaigns for an office. As a conservative all I want is the facts. I’m an adult, I can take the information I have obtained and make a reasonable assessment of a person. But when I see thing like this all I can think is “They’re taking the campaign as a joke.” Then I think, “are they taking the job as a joke too?”
If the campaign is serous about this election I would suggest: that you denounce this type of rhetoric.
Let all people know you don’t support this type of campaigning. In other words, take the high road.
Or to make my statement more simple, your running for Chief, would you let your officers do this? Because this is an embarrassment to you and the office your trying to obtain.
As a news reporter, if I needed a story for the day. I would eat you for breakfast over this picture and be much harsher than I am in this commentary. Don’t become my “story of the day.”
