Kanye West


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."

Glad to have never spent one cent on his NO TALENT rap crap. Glad I never watched creeping up the NO TALENT Kardashians. Wish the media would keep them and old bitch MAMA out of the media. The money they take for doing nothing is stealing. Something is wrong with those lower VAMPIRE teeth of KRYYEAH. They must be biting into his brain or something.

How DARE such a delusional and self-centered male compare hinself to any police officer, military person,erc.!!! If he was a REAL MAN he'd put his actions to good use and join the milions of men who put their lives on the line daily -whether in war-torn countries or places like Detroit!! He may be a so-so entertainer but he will NEVER be listed among the real heroes of this country!

I was in the military and I am happy people disapprove of Kanye's comments, but I believe cops should focus on their jobs, not delusional rappers speaking within the confines of the first amendment. People talk and a lot of non-criminals talk crap about cops who spend their days harassing ordinary folks when there are actual criminals yet to be handcuffed.
