A lot of the anti-coppers depersonalize the middle class dude with a tough job into some kind of hydra-monster "The State", and confuse childish rantings against the police officer with striking some kind of brave individualistic pose against the former.
    You will always have people who have bad feelings about authority figures.

    But actions like Beardo took are not fueling the fire, they are pouring napalm on it.

Had a brief talk and told him about some of the things I have seen and asked "if an armed group raided us right now for all the $ and dope [in the hundreds of thousands] whose lives would be on the line?"

    It takes knowing what cops really do, not the weekly "who ya gonna call" bull**** on TV. People need to know that those uniforms mean safety and protection, are not a threat. They need to know that the most serious threat to a street cop is no where near being shot, but seriously injured by a "disturbed individual" off his meds and thinking he's the new messiah come the reap souls. They need to know just how many times a day they get called to pick an addict out of the gutter, or come to the aid of a mental health patient addled and confused and find some safety for them and somehow manage to keep relatively normal lives. Let's face it, the things cops and I had in common, was being mis-understood and hated, and the fact that when either of us showed up unexpectedly you knew your were going to have a bad day or many.

    the kid and I had a great chat, he was stoned as hell and I figure he went off to enlist.

    What was really the greatest treat was how my VPD interacted with the crowd, many agreeing that the **** should be legal.



    *sigh* lets correct the record.


    in 2013 there were 14,556 assaults on police officers that resulted in injury. there are 900,000 police officers. It's a safe job they chose to do.

    You don't think a public official breaching the public trust, and potentially committing a crime, is news worthy? Really?

    It's assault, by a police officer. why didn't the other officers arrest him?


    why did the officer have a problem being filmed?

    Well! If all you're going to do is point out fallacies then we MIGHT as well just NOT debate at all!!!

    What the ****?

    Where did I mention assaults? Where did I say it was so ****ing dangerous a job?

    I specifically stated the greatest danger is dealing with mental health cases. I did not even ****ing imply that it is a dangerous job, policing is less dangerous than construction and mental health work.

    Sigh my ass. Save your condescending bull**** for people who give a ****.

    How often do they deal with mental health cases that result in violence then? What percantage led to injury?


    I *sigh* because I am tired of the propaganda that the police have it sooooo tough, they don't

    I responded to this, then I read it for the sarcasm that (I hope) it is...
    “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary (or faith) depends upon his not understanding it.”
