Such a response is inevitable human nature but that doesn't make it in any way justified. It works both ways of course. If lots of citizens treat police officers like trash, it isn't going to encourage police officers to treat citizens they deal with respectfully.

    We can't just 'trust' the police, or politicians, they have to continue to earn our trust all year long. Do you have an alternative?
    I'm not sure need one - I pretty much agree with everything you say there.

    Sorry, that wasn't a personal "you", it was in reference to the people in this thread who are objecting to police using drones on the basis of their general dis-trust (often hatred IMO) of the police.

    Exactly. The kind of drones the police might use are little more than RC airplanes. Not nearly as dangerous as the AR-15s we already entrust the police with. If we can't trust the police with drones, then we oughta be looking at the people, not the equipment they use. As much as some people hate the police, we still need them. And they need to have the gear necessary to do the job as well as they can.

    If you're going to debate what i 'suggest" rather than what I say it will make debate very difficult. You can then interpret whatever I say, or what anyone says, in any number of ways.

    "Hatred" appears more frequently in these debates and am wondering how that started. Do you sincerely believe there are a great number of honest people who 'hate' the police? I've heard the same thing applied to people who only laugh at Barrack Obama. It's a word which could be used less seldom or it might go the way of 'fascist' or 'racist' where the word eventually comes to mean nothing.

    It's what I got from your posts. You're free to clarify your position if you like.

    I not sure there are all that many honest people out there anyway but I do think an not insignificant number of people have a literal hatred of "the police" as an abstract concept. "The police" stop them for speeding or drink driving, "the police" don't turn up immediately when they make a none-emergency call, "the police" don't stop those kids hanging out on the street corner. Put on top of that the generally negative news reports (because a police officer doing something wrong makes "better" news than hundreds doing something right) and it's easy to see how the easily influence could develop a hatred.

    Such hatred is much less likely to be reflected on to individuals and it's obviously much easier and safer to rant on an anonymous forum than do anything in real life but I don't think that makes it any less hatred.
