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."

I'd gladly buy this idiot a hoodie and give him a 1 way ticket to wherever George Zimmerman is now and let him see how his comment holds his dumb azz up

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.

After reading most of the post for this story I can only conclude a couple of things:
1. If Obama had a "grown up, misguided son" this would be him!!!
2. Kanye is an absolute IDIOT who uses race like his "daddy" to agitate just about any topic.
3. Cops and soldiers have more honor in their bathroom excrements than Kanye will ever have.

what do you mean? he works hard for his weekly check. not like he makes 25,000.00 an hour or anything. Being attacked by vicious scantily clad groupies wielding bottles of cristal and carrying coach bags is serious bitniss! You do realize that he has to drive in a car capable of doing 200 mph right? not exactly safe! and what if he were to drown in his in ground pool? Don't even get me started on the spiral staircases!!!

he does put his life on the line. There are probably those who are dangerous to him. Those cops and such opt for the dangerous jobs. we all put ourselves on the line when we cross a street or trust someone. The police are no braver than the rest of us. I put myself on the line giving birth for 16 hours.
