Kanye West

BLASTED BY OHIO POLICE CHIEF

How Dare You Compare Yourself to Cops!

1212-chief-david-oliver-ap-2-articleA police chief in Ohio is GOING OFF on Kanye West -- tearing the guy apart for comparing himself to cops and soldiers ... saying Kanye has NO CLUE about the real dangers they face. 

The cop with the beef is Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver ... who says he was listening when Kanye told a media outlet that he puts his life on the line at his rap concerts ... just like cops and soldiers.

Chief Oliver was so angry, he posted an open letter to West on the department's Facebook page ... saying, "You sir, are as misguided as they come."

The majority of the letter is dripping in sarcasm, mocking Kanye for the ridiculous comparison:

"Since you are accustomed to danger, from your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately abandon you career as a super star and join the military."

"After joining, I would like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other forward locations where our men an women are currently serving. When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow."

"I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck."

The letter ends, "What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves."

"Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver."

This is why I love living in Brimfield and Chief Oliver. Kanya you will never be nothing. Our Brave men and woman in the police, fire departments and military deserve every penny you make.

What a pompous a$$ KW is. He is so full of himself he's about to explode! It was hysterical watching his interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show - you could tell it was taking everything she had to not bust out laughing as this arrogant so-called rapper! And his new video? If that's what you call "music" these days, I'm going back to listening to Elvis and the oldies! Kayne will NEVER get one CENT of my money! His wife is rather worthless, too - not sure what a "Kardashian" is - but I'd rather not wast a minute of my precious life "keeping up with them!"

LOVE Chief Oliver - find him on Facebook! This guy ROCKS!!!

Did you ever notice Kanghay has a ****oris in the middle of his upper Lip?

Maybe that's why he wears the Leather Skirt and gets The Wig out the back of the trunk for a late night Cruise in The Village...

Love it! Well put Chief. I just hope Kanye doesn't have a concert coming up in Ohio anytime soon. Because I would suspect there will probably be no police presence upon his arrival! They should all leave him to "battle" it out himself .

You Kanye, are a piece of garbage. To compare what you do to a police officer, well you are very misguided. Why don't you apply for a jailer's position at a large Sheriff's Department and let's see how your little scrawny ass holds up against criminals that have nothing to lose. Never listened to your music and damn sure will not now. From a police officer to you, I have no respect for you at all. The next time you need law enforcement assistance, why don't you take care of it yourself since you compare yourself to us.
