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 has turned into a complete ass-clown. I've never seen someone act so blatantly and publicly full of themselves and have so much disrespect for other people. It's like turned into a mental disease for him or something. All he sounds like now is an annoying, uneducated, rude, a-hole.

i live in a neighboring town… this police chief has an ego as big as kanye 's - he blogs everyday about things like this and the dumb locals eat it up. now he's giving speeches for local business groups and is pushing some book he wrote…ugh. his attention seeking skills are on par with kanye's or better, in my opinion.

I suspect Kris Jenner is already working on a game plan to separate her daughter from this laughing stock. And figuring out damage control so her "brand" doesn't suffer...even more than it has already.

THANK YOU MR BRIMFIELD POLICE CHIEF DAVID OLIVER! Someone needed to say it! When I first saw this article, I was thinking, 'Okay, this idiot doesn't really believe this about himself?'..but with his reputation as a biggot and self-obsessed nobody, I can see him actually believing this b.s.

I love this little moon cricket, Kayne. He's as classless and clueless as they come. And the fact that he as to wake up to a "Hobbit" every morning has to suck almost as much as being Jimmy Kimmel's little beeeotch.

His interview on Kimmel was the most uncomfortable thing to watch. Not sure how Jimmy kept a straight face.
