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 delusional, a legend in his own mind and the fans he has, are in the same boat. He was fortunate to even be in entertainment. I don't personally see the talent . I'm not a fan of Kim Kardashians, but he really does not help her image either.

The comment Kanye made would have made sense back in the late 80's to 90's because back then, rappers were actually getting shot and killed. The rapper crime rate has been so low since the 00's, Lil' Wayne accidentaly shot himself twice.

Kanye paid for the risky elective cosmetic surgery that led to his mother's death. I think that's something that this man has been dealing with~ his money paid for what ultimately took his one and only life coach away from him.
His mother created the narcissistic azzhole and then she left him to fend for himself.
I wonder what Amber Rose could tell us about him?

lets get it    

Its pretty unanimous that everone hates Kanye.What I dont understand is why the public let him win the Ferrari F 50 record sales battle in 2007.Even more significant and disappointing was the Rick Ross beef.That definitely proved hip hop changed.Street Credibility and authenticity no longer mattered.U got a correctional officer mascarading as a real hustla cmon people.wake up its ur fault.real n####z make the world go round.Yo Gotti, Jeezy, Fif, T.I,Jim Jones, Game,Jigga, Montana

Kanye, my brother, you are giving racists a reason to be racist... Chillax bro. Take an early retirement and move to another country. Learn another language, maybe two, and find a new hobby that doesn't involve speaking.
