He says Kanye doesn't have a clue...
An Ohio police chief has posted an open letter online to Kanye West slamming him for comparing his job with that of police and soldiers. As previously reported, Kanye said that he undergoes physical risk at his concerts and that there are times where he feels like a police officer or someone going to war. Now, TMZ reports that Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver has posted the open letter on the department's Facebook page calling Kanye misguided. Check it out below:
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.
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.
