HEAR emotional Atlanta cop TikTok

A frustrated cop’s emotional TikTok video touched a few hearts over the weekend as he ranted that he was “so goddamn tired” of constantly hearing “that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing.”

Maj Kelvin Dingle, the operational commander at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Public Safety in Atlanta, told Fox News that most police officers are “good-hearted people that want to make a difference” and that day he’d just “had enough.”

A frustrated cop’s emotional TikTok video touched a few hearts over the weekend as he ranted that he was “so goddamn tired” of constantly hearing “that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing.”

Maj Kelvin Dingle, the operational commander at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Public Safety in Atlanta, told Fox News that most police officers are “good-hearted people that want to make a difference” and that day he’d just “had enough.”

“It seems like every night we go to sleep or every morning we wake up, there’s something negative that’s portrayed about law enforcement,” Dingle said. “I was riding home and I was thinking in regards to everything and now it’s just different. I’m driving next to people and people are just frowning at me. People are purposely doing things to get my attention. They’re flipping me off.”

Dingle said he knows there’s good reason for some of the negativity, but it’s just not the whole story.

“Don’t get me wrong,” he said. “It is what it is, some people make bad decisions. But the majority of us that put this badge on every day, the majority of us want to protect and serve. … We’re generally good-hearted people that want to make a difference … and that day, I just, honestly, had enough. My heart was broken because of the things that I saw in just traveling home to my family, and it wasn’t always that way.”

“All of us are not bad,” he said in that now viral video. “I am not as they are. Most of us are not. There are bad people in every career.”

“The truth of the matter,” Dingle told Fox, “is we have two sides and two sides need to be heard. But people need to listen — not to respond — but listen to understand. That’s the difference … if you can do that, I promise you there’s a solution out there. We just have to communicate in which to find it.”
