The Only Good Cop Is A Dead Cop


I'm not afraid to say it
I'm not gonna say I'm sorry for it
Ain't even one of 'em worth a thing
Just dirt beneath our feet
Scum
Each and every last one of 'em
They protect and serve all right....
Themselves!

P.I.G.S.
I can think of no more fitting title than this one for them
Unless maybe it's.....
Wormfood
Yeah, much better
Not trying to say they should die and I'm not trying to encourage any nutcases out there
I'm just saying that none of us should honor or shed any tears over these fallen zeroes

Act so tough
As tough as nails
Think they're so high and mighty
Above the law
Better than all the rest of us
Rolling my eyes I can only say
Oh please....

NWA said it best
When they said
F the police
I would say creating them was God's worst mistake
But I think we all know by now
God had nothing do with these jerks
In fact, I'm pretty sure he agrees with me
'Cause he was the one who ask me in a dream to write....

The only good cop is a dead cop

Note-Hey, why do you think so many of them die each year, anyway?

Eyes to the skies, people

    Im going to Side With You. Some dumb fat cop stopped me for NOTHING. No VIOLATION WHATSOEVER.. NO TICKET ISSUED THEN HE SAYS TO ME TO HAVE A NICE EVENING WHEN THAT PIG JUST STRESSED ME OUT. I TRULY HATE COPS, ESPECIALLY PIG COPS.

    POLICE ARE USELESS THEY DON'T STOP CRIME - THEY REPORT IT LIKE THE PRESS - COULDN'T CARE LESS IF 4 MORE DIED IN ONE DAY LIKE IN OAKLAND - IT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED SOONER & MORE OFTEN.

    YEAH COPS AREN'T GOD THEY JUST PRETEND THEY ARE - NAME A COP THAT EVER STOPPED A MURDER - YOU CAN'T CAUSE THEY DON'T - (Report) Reply

    Ramona my dear, you and Pat McFarland deserve each other! He can't walk in your broken down brogues and you don't know how lucky you really are! You stand on the sidewalk as a patrol officer bleeds his life out in front of you and you can only say along with Patrick that he doesn't know why a peace keeper was slain on your street but that he wishes peace to a witness who has no clue about the ramifications of such a dastardly act! Wake up and smell the infernal blaze from hell! (Report) Reply

    What can I say, I haven't walked in your shoes. All I know is that hate, in any form, is never the answer. Peace to you Ramona. (Report) Reply
