Herman: Backing the blue doesn’t mean giving up my morality or independence
On Friday morning, one of my favorite listeners, “Seems Crazy,” texted my program with the following note in regard to my commentary about the murder of George Floyd by a police officer.
Is it your position that officer acted with premeditation and intent. You’ve ‘rasseled’.. and you know that will not kill anyone. If you disagree, could you, as a reasonable person, clearly articulate, the mechanism and means of death?
So why are you, of all persons, participating in the propaganda of silence?
I understand the desire to back police, especially in Seattle where police officers are abused by politicians and hated by the wokerati, and I am well aware that the vast majority of cops do their dangerous jobs with great honor and humanity. It’s also important to be clear-eyed; I responded the best I could to “Sounds Crazy,” here’s what I said.
