Who Hates Cops?

Dakota Kurtis Means

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power?”
Romans 13: 1-3 (KJV)

When the Apostle Paul wrote his epistle to the early Christian church in Rome, the entirety of the Mediterranean world was under the yoke of the Roman empire, specifically under Nero, who was about to embark upon a persecution of which Paul himself would become a victim. Thus his admonition to be subject to “the powers that be,” as ordained by God, must be contemplated quite seriously. Even if we are ourselves subjected to wrongful persecution, Christians have a duty to emulate Jesus in complying with governing authority. And if this is our duty as Christians, what are we to conclude about cop-haters like Dakota Means?

A Portland rioter who was previously given probation for assaulting a federal contract worker was given 12.5 years in jail for killing his 3-month-old infant child.
Dakota Kurtis Means, 23, was given the sentence after pleading guilty to one count of first-degree manslaughter and one count of first-degree criminal mistreatment, according to Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt.
Means, who had previously been sentenced to time served and given probation after pleading guilty to threatening a federal officer, was found responsible for the death of Hunter Means, his young child, in April 2021, just months after he was released in January 2021 for his other crime. . . .
Prosecutors said that Means violently shook his son, resulting in the young child hitting his skull on something causing brain trauma. . . .
During the investigation, Hunter’s mother said that Means treated her “like an animal” and had been “really physically violent” to her. . . .
Means intimidated a federal contractor with a paintball gun outside the Mark O. Hatfield United State Courthouse in Portland in August 2020 and spent 60 days behind bars before being sentenced and let out on probation.
During the incident he brandished a paintball gun, cursing at the contractor and saying that it was “going to be an AR” next time.

Among other things, I’m reminded of the fact that, when Kyle Rittenhouse was defending himself against the BLM/Antifa rioters in Kenosha, all three of the people he shot had criminal records. Coincidence? I don’t think so. The kind of people most likely to participate in anti-police riots are bad people. This goes back to what I began saying after my first-hand encounter with an angry mob of “Occupy” protesters in 2011: Bad causes attract bad people.

Even if a decent law-abiding citizen were sympathetic to the left-wing causes espoused by such people, one look at that crowd of ne’er-do-wells would suffice to convince you to avoid associating with them.

They are bad people with bad motives, and nothing good is likely to happen to anyone who associates with them. Stay away from such trash, and let “the powers that be” deal with them.
