Ohio Police Chief David Oliver Tells Kanye West To "Check Yourself, Before You Wreck Yourself" For Comparing The Dangers Of His Career To Cops Or The Military

 

Kanye West raised a few eyebrows when he compared the dangers of his rap career to being a police officer or in the military.

 

As we previously reported, West made the comments during an interview with Saturday Night Online over the weekend.

 

"I'm giving my body on the stage and putting my life at risk," Kanye said. "I think about when I'm on the 'Can't Tell Me Nothing/Coldest Winter' moment. That mountain goes really, really high. And if I slip you never know. And I think about my family like, 'Wow, this is like being a police officer, or like war.' You literally going out to do your job every day knowing something could happen. Something can happen to you verbally from the press bashing you. Something can happen to you from people not like you anymore, or you can actually slip on that stage. But it's like we walking this tight rope and fighting for creativity, and fighting for ideas, and fighting for thought."

 

Brimfield, Ohio Police Chief David Oliver didn't like the comments and fired off an open letter to the "Jesus Walks" rapper this morning via his department's Facebook page.

 

Dear Kanye West,

I am honored to be writing such an important star. I am a mere Internet sensation. I’m not sure I am worthy to address you, although the Huffington Post did say I was “Humorous and Insanely Popular.” I don't pay much attention to those things. Anyway, please excuse my interference in your life for a quick second.

I read your interview and also watched it on video. You said: 
“I’m just giving of my body on the stage and putting my life at risk, literally.….and I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”

I want to thank you for putting your life on the line for all of us every day. I know that being a rapper is tough work. I have tried to rap, and it is very difficult to keep up with the pulse of the rhyme flow…although when Ice Ice Baby comes on the radio, I can usually keep up with ol’ Vanilla. Anywho, your job is just some very dangerous work. Most people don't consider... if you rap really fast, without a chance to inhale, you could pass out and hit your head.

That last paragraph was covered in sarcasm. I’m letting you know, just so you do not think I agree with your very ignorant assessment of your career (or any other performer)as it relates to a person in the military or a police officer’s service. You sir, are as misguided as they come. I do have a suggestion for you. 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. It could be something like “I’m Kanye West, wearing a flak vest.” I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck.

Your line of thinking is part of the problem in the world today….which include entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers. I know it is supply and demand and the demand for your services is high. I get economics. 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.

 

 

 

I wonder if this will get Kanye's attention. Check out his original interview below.
