Goodcops.com to acknowledge good police officers in your community

I saw this on a post recently.

Why not start up a website like goodcops.com or something. The site could be for communities to nominate and acknowledge the good police officers in their communities. There are some good cops out there, but too often they are overshadowed by the rotten ones like that guy at BART.

Truth be told, you only hear about police officers in the news when they do something racist or abusive so that leads to a certain stigma and negative feeling about police in general. A site like “goodcops” could work to counter that stereotype. Pastors in the community along with celebrities could hand out the awards and the site could have other features to drive traffic to it. I think it would work best if a strong effort was made to make being a police officer cool again. (sort of like how Obama made politics cool again).

We can’t just hear the bad about police officers, or it tempts people to think they’re all bad which isn’t true or fair.

I think it’s important for the public to see a balance, so I agree with the poster on that. Maybe a site like “goodcops.gov” or something would be a good and effective way to improve relationships between police and the communities they serve in.

  1. Calgary Police supposedly persecute the Chrtistians and why?

    YouTube – Pastor Arrested for Preaching the Gospel to the Poor

    My own personal direct experience was a shock to realize how much the Calgary cops do hate anyone mentioning Jesus Christ.

    Many of them go after work to the police tavern across the street from the main Calgary police station and drive drunk home from there next too.. this too needs to be exposed..

    On Saturday, Concerned Christians Canada reported that “members of the Street Church ministry were forcefully removed from their preaching platform by a mob of police officers.”http://noapologies.ca/?p=1263
    CCC continued: “For years the City has been waging a battle against the ministry, getting more and more aggressive with members being manhandled, Christian materials confiscated, and volunteers wounded from rough treatment. Street Church ministries has made several attempts to have their Charter rights restored and have made several pleas for justice and mercy which have, to this date, fallen on deaf ears.”

    CCC is “is launching an awareness campaign and will be contacting thousands of their supporters across the country to notify them of what injustices are going on in the City of Calgary.”

    Jim Blake, National Chairman, Concerned Christians Canada, said “During this altercation three volunteers were arrested, one of which for recording the behaviour of the police from a nearby sidewalk, and still other ministry members were intimidated by being surrounded by squad cars, paddy wagons and police officers. Ironically drug dealers and drug users were conducting their business right in front of the officers and they did nothing to stop them. It’s just so hypocritical. It’s high time that City council step up to the plate. They need to lay down their battle gear and allow Street Church to care for the less fortunate in peace. The very things that City officials harass Street Church about they allow others to do regularly without attacking them. This is a precisely targeted campaign against a ministry that preaches the gospel. It is bigotry and it must stop.”

    People who want more information about this case can reach Jim Blake at 403-690-4636 or at nationalchairman@concernedchristians.ca .
