A Georgia police officer is making national headlines after he delivered an emotional rant from inside of his squad car.
Venting about his frustrations, predominantly the public perception of police officers in the past year, an exhausted Officer Kelvin Dingle screamed that he was tired of feeling like a bad person for trying to help his community.
The video has nearly 2 million views on TikTok right now.
“I wake up every morning and kiss my family goodbye, knowing that there’s a possibility I will not come home.
I am tired of every time I wake up in the morning someone polarizes the fact that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing. All of us are not bad. I am not as they are, most of us are not.
There are bad people in every career. I am so goddamn tired, tired, tired!”
Major Dingle later spoke to Fox News about the viral rant, detailing some of things that brought him to the point of breaking down, what he’s been experiencing lately, and how it’s not the same as it used to be.
“I drive next people at they’re frowning at me, people are purposely doing things to get my attention, they’re flipping me off, and it was not that way.
This is something new, it’s a new attitude and I don’t know where it’s coming from. I can see where it’s coming from but all of us are not bad.”
Officer Dingle has served more than 20 years on the force and also is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
