Paul Harvey ” Policeman ”

December 22, 2014

Submitted by: Veronica Coffin

by Jason DeWitt

The legendary Paul Harvey was beloved by Americans for nearly 50 years as an iconic radio presence.

But what many may not know is that Harvey lost his father when he was just three years old.

His father was a police officer,  who was shot and killed in the line of duty.

So Harvey knew all too well about the pain and loss that the children of the two slain NYPD cops felt, when he wrote a powerful newspaper column in 1970 called “What Are Policemen Made Of?”

Harvey then read the piece for his radio audience as “The Policeman.”

In the wake of yesterday’s horrible loss in New York City, it seems very appropriate to share Harvey’s words today:

“The Policeman”

A policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.

What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual, they are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact: and the fact is, less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. And that is a better average than you would find among clergymen!

What is a policeman? He, of all men, is at once the most needed and the most wanted. A strangely nameless creature who is “sir” to his face and “pig” or worse to his back.

He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.

But…If the policeman is neat, he is conceited; If he’s careless, he’s a bum. If he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt; If he’s not, he’s a grouch.

He must make instant decisions which would require months for a lawyer.

But…if he hurries, he’s careless; If he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with a diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt. He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being “brutal.” If you hit him…he’s a coward. If he hits you…he’s a bully.

The policeman, from a single human hair, must be able to describe the crime, the weapon, the criminal and tell you where the criminal is hiding. But…if he catches the criminal, he’s lucky; if he doesn’t, he is a dunce.

He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache, to build a case against some felon who will get “dealed out” by a shameless shamus.

The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.

And of course, he’ll have to be a genius…for he will have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.

God bless Paul Harvey.

And may Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos rest in peace.

Palestinian Resistance1

Bassem Masri, an infamous Ferguson agitator, has surfaced in New York City taunting police officers who were mourning the loss of their fellow colleagues, Officers Rafael Ramos, and Wenjian Liu.

As reported by Victoria O’Kane at Broadside News,

Officer Lieu was only twenty-eight and had just been married two months earlier. Officer Ramos had just turned forty on December ninth and had a thirteen year old son who must now grow up without a father.

Masri took to the streets of New York City after the horrific execution to goad police officers as he did so many times in Ferguson. In the video, Masri encourages police to stand with “real men” of the “Palestinian resistance.”

Watch the video here, if you can stomach it:

Masri made similar statements while in Ferguson:

Bassem Masri has gotten himself plenty of attention for his activities in Ferguson, Missouri. Back in November, J.E. Dyer at Liberty Unyielding wrote about his antics as a Hamas supporter and police instigator. Dyer also revealed that Masri was tapped by the Department of Justice to act as a consultant on “police reform.”

 

Why would the taxpayer-funded Department of Justice enlist in the help of a man like Masri for reforming police “nationwide?” The idea of federalizing the police has been getting some play in the media. If progressives are worried about a “police state,” the idea of a government-run police force should send shivers up their spines. Most Americans surely recognize that police officers run to criminals as others run in the opposite direction.

Considering that every single day, police officers deal with the worst among us, it is frankly shocking that there are not more fatalities and violence. After all, on any given day, one can find local news stories about police officers getting injured and even killed by criminals.

Does Masri agree with these communist-led useful idiots that call for “dead cops?” See a partial list of the groups behind the Ferguson “movement.”

Chicago Police Officer Martin Preib discusses the anti-police movement. Preib took on one of the Innocence Project’s first big wrongful conviction successes out of Chicago. It was the Anthony Porter case, a double murder in Chicago in 1982. Porter was sentenced to death row for the crime. The Innocence Project got someone else to confess to the murder, a man named Alstory Simon, and Porter was freed. The case led to a ban on capital punishment in Illinois. But Porter was actually guilty of the crime.
