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."

His fans are just a notch more ignorant than he is. To look up to this piece of garbage and think he's actually worthy of anyone's time or money is beyond me. Comparing himself to a soldier? What an ********! He wouldn't last 5 seconds in an actual battle, he'd soil himself and lay on the ground crying like a two year old. Thank God he didn't try to defend us as a soldier or we'd all be wearing robes and bowing to mecca. Good for Chief Oliver and it's time the douche-bag Kanye to crawl back into the rubber room where he came from and never ever come out again. Racist, elitist, talentless hunk of human waste.

slapp down the hater    

I guarentee there are people out there that are just waiting and looking for an oppertunity to kill him or othrr entertainers. Remember tupac n bighie both murdered. **** can happen and kanye brought religion into his music that fuels the flames. Hes not wrong for saying he risks his life preforming in public because the chance of someone trying to kill him is real. But no hes not in constant everyday danger like a cop or soldier. Still think this police officer is on a high hoarse that he needs to get off of

OK let me break it down for the idiots when police and military personnel are working they know there is a risk on there lives, all kanye was saying is when he works he feels like he risks his life as well, therefore he felt it was kinda like the same thing
