Jefferson Griffeath – Facebook Chat

[For full context you probably need to go watch “End of Watch”.  Which is honestly a comedy with some emotional strings of brotherhood tied in.

Also know that Jefferson feels about the same way I do about cops.  We don’t hate them, we under stand their purpose, but a decent number of them seem to sign away their independent thought when putting on the badge.  The best example is the speech at the beginning of the movie.  There are a lot of cops that feel exactly like that speech instead of saying, “That law isn’t right and I shouldn’t be enforcing it.”  They don’t see themselves as the check and balance they should be in the system.

Well I was chatting with Jefferson about some other things and mentioned I was watching the comedy on his recommendation.  I made a comment related to the end, I’m not going to spoil it, and the above was his response.

I couldn’t stop laughing until I started coughing. –B ]
