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 so stupid he is now the worlds most hated man and he is oblivious to it. Kim will wake up one day she always does and will met the real man of her dreams.

Seriously , he didn't even say it like that , the media and people keep salting his name like he really is doing this **** everyday... He said it's like that , as a example or hypothetical.. But just like ignorant people do, they made this into another ****ed up Kanye moment .. People need to get a life

No one gives a ****. This fat **** police officer probably has a lower IQ than K. West coming from Ohio. Leave the dude alone, he makes good music, he has a dope clothing line, he's making money because he's a hard worker. If you took some time to work hard yourself you would understand.

at least someone told it to him straight. i mean seriously this guy thinks hes bigger and better just because hes dating kim kardashian and is engaged. hes only now with her because of the kid and the fact that shes famous. in 09 when his one record was out he was a dudd and no one and i thought he was a has been his career died and he still isn't a good rapper. and i think your latest song may agree with "u huh honey"

He didn't say anything about the military ... he referenced his words to the fact that a wrong move can ruin his image and if it was bad enough (like this incident) it would ruin his life and put him in a position he can't recover from. Now if a cop does something stupid that a ruins the image of a cop then his life is equally destroyed. He did not mean his physical life... if that was his intention then he could be damned to hell. But it wasn't ....

He keeps saying he is Jesus. So the Son of God on his second coming to earth decides to become a rapper, a wannabe fashion designer and marry a fat ex-pornstar pseudo celebrity? The words "delusional dbag" come to mind.

Before you compare yourself to the law enforcement and military and especially what its like to be at war, maybe you should join the military and ACTUALLY GO TO WAR! I spent 14.5 months in Iraq in 2006 - 2007... you sir, have no ****ING CLUE! Your job doesn't require that you are targeted by gunfire, mortars, or roadside bombs on the daily and I GARANTEE that you sleep just fine at night knowing that you have an easy life. Your talent gets you paid millions of easy money while soldiers and law enforcement make less than or close to minimum wage. I agree with Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver, you should drop everything you do and join the military do a job that requires you to be outside the wire, in the ****, then volunteer for a tour(s) in Trashcanistan. Then you can compare yourself to us who actually put our life on the line so you can keep doing what you do best... even though I have never been a fan of your music, clothing line, or your "wonderful" choice in women. Anyone who thinks we need to leave him alone about his choice in words... screw you too. It's been 6, almost 7, years since i left that God forsaken hell hole and it effects me, and anyone i know who has been to war, wether I'm awake or asleep. I couldn't imagine what it would be ideal to wake up from a dream about millions of people being my fans and giving me millions upon millions of dollars and realize that it wasn't a dream.

I wonder if poor Kimmy stays awake at night wondering if he will come home alive like I do when my husband puts on his bullet proof vest! My hubby would take a bullet for any one of you.... you think that piece of lowlife crap Kanye would? Hell no, he would be the one shooting the gun. By the way Kayne....if you think you are like a P.O or soldier... why don't you try living on $40,00 a year... you piece of crap! I challenge you but you don't have the balls!
