I need to make something clear up front. I truly appreciate the support that I’ve gotten over the past few weeks dealing with these bogus charges against me. However, if there’s anything I deplore more than the illegal actions of police officers and Soldiers it’s the illegal actions of “patriots.”
If you support me, you support the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution gives NO ONE the right to threaten the lives of anyone else, especially our police officers. There are legal ways of dealing with the actions of those that would use their positions to break the law and threatening their lives isn’t one of them.
I will tell anyone that reads straight up: I will stand side by side with Officer Steve Ermis and protect his life with mine before I allow any physical harm to come to him. I will defend him to the death over your actions, whomever you are. What’s more troubling is that Ermis isn’t the only one receiving death threats, from what I have heard. People are threatening members of the City of Temple, the Chief of Police and even prosecutors. And guess what? I’m getting them too. However, I’ve been sending them directly to the FBI for prosecution and I hope the city is doing the exact same thing with threats against its employees.
I know this is a very passionate and timely issue, but let’s all keep our cool. I will not tolerate such illegal and felonious behavior under any circumstances. I don’t wish death or harm to these people and certainly don’t condone those that do. It is despicable and unacceptable behavior. I hope those of you responsible are caught, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and given the maximum penalties if found guilty. I don’t want any part of it.
Again, I will gladly stand guard outside the home of these people that did this to me to ensure no harm comes to them so that they and their families can sleep peacefully knowing that there are others willing to protect them while they sleep. I have plenty of military friends that would gladly sacrifice sleep for the safety of these people being threatened.
I hope I’ve made myself quite clear where I stand on this issue! Just DON’T support me if these are the kinds of things you are going to do. I do not want to be associated with such activities. You are no better than the people that bombed the Boston Marathon in my mind and deserve the shame punishment.
