Police Chief Responds to Kanye West Interview
Kanye has NO CLUE about the real dangers police and military soldiers face everyday….”he’s clueless”
Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver was listening to the Kanye interview with Saturday Night Online. During the interview Kanye said
he puts his life on the line at his rap concerts … just like cops and soldiers.
As of noon Thursday, just hours after posting it, Oliver’s message to West had received more than 1,500 comments.
Oliver calls West ignorant and “as misguided as they come,” saying “entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers” is “part of the problem in the world today.”
In the letter Oliver says, “I know it is supply and demand and the demand for your services is high. I get economics. What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves.”
“Since you are accustomed to danger … I would like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other forward locations where our men and women are currently serving.” Oliver wrote. “When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow. It could be something like ‘I’m Kanye West, wearing a flak vest.’ I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck.”
The letter ends, “What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves.”
“Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver.”
