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."

Kanye is a very talented artist, if you don't like the things he says stop buying his music and don't support him or his future wife

Misguided? By what? The truth?
Pull your head out.

There are little things called facts.
Verified by a thing call math.
You do know what math is?

Like I said before, these cop's jobs aren't even top ten dangerous (look it up) and half their 'died in the line of duty' comes from driving around like maniacs and crashing their cars. Followed of course by donut induced heart attacks and shooting each other.

Here you go..

"According to the publication Officer Down, there were only 95 “duty related” officer deaths in 2013. Forty-two of these fatalities were vehicle related. Another 14 deaths resulted from heart attacks while on the clock. Only 27 cops died from gunfire last year and several of those were shot by other cops."

Ignorance of the law (or the facts) is no defense. My prediction of the porker pictured above having a heart attack, stumbling over his own pudgy feet (i've fallen and i can't get up), or crashing his car driving around like a maniac are well founded and worthy of betting odds.

As I said before, this porker's biggest risk comes from a donut induced heart attack, tripping over a painted line, crashing his car driving like an asshat or being shot by his own people. What a hero!

"According to the publication Officer Down, there were only 95 “duty related” officer deaths in 2013. Forty-two of these fatalities were vehicle related. Another 14 deaths resulted from heart attacks while on the clock. Only 27 cops died from gunfire last year and several of those were shot by other cops."

Kanye is as dumb as they come and hooking up with Hollywoods biggest Ho proves it beyond a doubt. I cant stand to see his arrogant peanut looking head posted online.

LOL - really comparing himself to cops and soldiers - if there was any truth in his statement - first thing he'd do is check his ego at the door each day

Kanye can't help it if he's a moron. It's such a shame he's so full of himself...constantly reaffirming to everyone what a pathetic bozo he really is. I feel so sorry for that child of his. God help us.

I'd call Kane West stupid, but that would be an insult to stupid people everywhere.
The guy is a legend in his own mind.
He should get together with Tom Cruise as they both think that their job is as difficult who really do put their lives on the line every day.
