In this age of political indoctrination leftist politicians won’t let cops do their jobs: what you need to know about what, how, and why cops do what they do.
“De-policing” isn’t about police apathy—it’s about leftistantipathytoward the police. Cops and society’s confusion about police work have collided as progressives try to replace equal justice for all with social justice for some.
De-policing is the phenomenon where cops avoid pro-active patrol, meaning, will a police officer respond when you are having the worst day of your life? Will the cops in your town hesitate to act out of fear of being fired, or worse, going to prison just for doing their jobs?
Anti-police groups have fabricated a myth that cops are wantonly slaughtering innocent minorities. They cite the number of suspects killed by police vs. cops killed by suspects as if it’s supposed to be a fair fight. But is there another profession where more people claim to know how to do it better than those trained to do it? Why, despite evidence exonerating officers of wrongdoing, does anti-police fervor too often flare into violence? Defending cops does not mean police abuses don’t occur, but with millions of interactions every year, they are rare.
How does Steve Pomper know about all this? He knows because as a retired cop, he’s dealt with this subject repeatedly in what has become one of the most protest-ridden cities in America: Seattle. De-Policing America is one street cop’s view of the destructive effects of social justice indoctrination and the demonization of law enforcement today.
We rarely hear from those directly affected by bad politics—the cops. It’s time for that to change. Learning what cops do, and why, and how their leftist leaders are attempting to brainwash them, is the beginning of understanding.
"Tired of people who've never worn a badge telling you what cops do, how they feel, and what they think? Read Steve Pomper's book for a real cop's perspective on the anti-police madness infecting America today. Want to know why cops do what they do? Then stop guessing and get the info from somebody with the guts to wear the badge."

"Steve Pomper is a recently retired cop who's undeniably tired of the Left's social justice indoctrination, especially as it concerns police officers. De-policing is only one intended consequence of the Left's propaganda, and it puts all Americans at risk. Fostering an anti-police state is another deliberate ploy of the Left, which has seemingly become a reality. Therefore, I implore you to take time to listen to Steve's poignant perspective. Even in retirement, he's still upholding his oath to protect and serve. However, his service weapon is a pen and the aim is sharper than ever. Targets, you've been warned."

"If you want to understand how Chicago can go from solving 67 out every 100 murders through arrests in 1991 to just 20 per 100 in 2016, Steve Pomper's book De-Policing America provides one answer, especially for recent years. How does teaching police, even black police officers, that they are racist against blacks affect their ability to do their job? What has been the impact of political correctness in many urban areas and under former-President Obama? Pomper, a Seattle Police Department veteran, gives the reader a police-eye view as to why many police believe that they have been discouraged or prevented from doing their job. He justifiably worries that the real innocent victims of these policies have been the most vulnerable people in our country, poor blacks who live in high crime urban areas. Making life easier for the criminal comes at the expense of making it much more difficult and less pleasant for the innocent."
