Colorado Springs Officers Go Viral, Salute Fort Carson Soldiers Returning Home from Deployment
Thanks to people like Colin Kaepernick, being a police officer in 2018 is a disgustingly thankless job. For crying out loud, look at this tweet from Kaepernick.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

Police officers all are unequivocally racist slave wranglers? Give me a break.
But that narrative, perpetuated by much of the liberal media and even some politicians, has sadly taken a hold in modern American culture.
So it is with great pleasure that I’d like to help remind the world that police officers, in fact, are largely noble and good people who routinely risk their lives so that we, as American citizens, can live peacefully and prosperously.
Case in point: This viral video of Colorado Springs police officers shows the overwhelming good that exists in the police force.
The video, which is sitting at over 1.4 million views at the time of publication, shows a side of police officers that the far left seems all too eager to ignore in favor of narratives that favor their agenda.
The viral video shows at least eight Colorado Springs officers standing at attention at a red light and saluting several buses carrying Fort Carson soldiers returning from deployment.
To put it simply, it’s an awesome pro-military and pro-police video making the rounds on social media. No wonder the leftist media is ignoring it.
According to KXRM-TV, nearly 560 Fort Carson soldiers are returning from a nine-month deployment abroad.
The soldiers, from the 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, were primarily deployed in Afghanistan. One battalion was deployed to Kosovo.
Deservedly so, the 560 troops were honored for their homecoming.
It was an obviously emotional moment for virtually everyone involved.
“I’m meeting my son for the first time,” Staff Sgt. Michael Looney told KCNC-TV before he met his son, Joseph. “I’m super excited and nervous a little bit.”
“I missed him a lot … it felt weird with him not being around,” an unnamed woman told KCNC-TV about her husband.
It’s stories like these that remind the world the emotional toll that having loved ones in both the military and the police can take. It’s a big reason why anti-police and anti-military rhetoric is so unbelievably infuriating.
Are there bad people among the ranks of the military and police? Possibly, but the same could be said about literally every other vocation in the world.
These brave men and women deserve to be commended and respected, regardless of whether there is a possible bad apple or two among their ranks. They do not deserve to be attacked by a biased media and some loser NFL quarterback who couldn’t keep his job.
So kudos to both the Colorado Springs police officers for their respect and the Fort Carson soldiers for their service. Thank you for everything and please ignore the absurd noise from the far left.
