So yeah LEO's are typically not going after scumbags unless you believe someone going 60mph in a 40mph road is a dangerous criminal. Then I would ask you to get your head examined.
    And is you're experience formed from interacting with dozens to hundreds of LEO's over a decade or so of time, or is it based on third party heresay from friends going "yeah my buddy knows this cop that..." and your own anecdotal evidence of being bitchy about being pulled over?

    Not to mention there's a crap ton of LEO's out there that have NOTHING to do with speeders.

    It's formed from own experience and from what I hear from people I respect. Its not being bitchy it is about being honest. The majority of police do not do anything dangerous and the worse of neighborhoods in the US are nothing comparable to a bad-but not the worst-neighborhood in Mexico.

    The truth of the matter is that most LEO are corrupt and abusive towards those incapable of defending themselves. Most LEOs are bullies. And it is formed by an opinion that is completely neutral with little biases unlike yourself. I guess what I am trying to say is that while not all cops are bad, I can see through the bs. That cops use to prosecute you and that people use to defend their actions. When the cops should probably punished for their actions but get away with it because they are the "law". Sleep well at night because ze cops are protecting you from evil speeders and bad cholesteral.

    Fine, my opinion is that you're opinion is worthless garbage, hyperbolic crap that is likely formed through, if not your own bias, the bias of your "respected" sources. Most LEO's are not bullies, are not corrupt, and while not possibly in the same line of danger as those in worse off countries like mexico still aren't in an entirely "safe" job. Even though many may not have the day to day likihood of dealing with gangs or investigating a homocide, and maybe have to spend their time doing traffic stops, that is still far from a "safe" situation. Individuals try to run over cops, individuals have been known to assult cops who pull them over, and other such things. Are there LEO's that are perhaps cowards, or bullies, or corrupt? Absolutely. But I believe its ridiculous hyperbole and ignorance to suggest that its a "majority" of them. My opinion of course is formed from own experience and from what I hear from people I respect. And it is formed by an opinion that is completely neutral with little biases unlike yourself. I can say that because you've given no more proof of your "neutrality" or "little bias" than I, and while you seem to be of an opinion that my lack of bias is BS you should do well knowing the feeling is mutural.

    I don't blame them at all. They are outmanned, outgunned and the cartels know everything about their families. The Mexican army has to get involved hardcore and the US should probably get more involved as well. The police are local and have families to consider. The cartels know this and will kill anyone that they think will help give them a leg up. This can easily spiral into a US domestic issue as well. We share borders with Mexico. This is something that needs to be backed heavily by the US. It's multiple times more important from a US domestic standpoint than the issues going on in Afghanistan right now IMHO.

    You are such a snake. You insinuate ideology/statements/opinion that I do not hold and call me names. Shame that a person like you is a mod. I did not call all cops corrupt, I did not say all cops have a safe job. And I for one do not have a patriotic belief that the nations finest are its cops, politicians, armed forces like many sheep believe. Those who believe the nation's greatest people are all serving as LEO, army are fools. And it a big tragedy because they are jobs and they are completely dependent on tax money for income. Basically what I am trying to say is that cops here are praised WAY TOO MUCH for having a safe job and for many being abusive a-holes.

    Nothing, just like yours. To tell you the truth, it's pretty self-explanatory if you notice the quote above my post. It's called a response to what someone replied to when they quoted me.

    Walk a mile in their shoes before you whine about it. Or, STFU.

I was expected to willingly put myself in danger for the sake of my duty and those under my protection, and I did so, and my buddies on third shift did so, and I resent the implication that we didn't.

    The Supreme Court ruled that LE is not liable for the safety of the individual citizen. The reason for that ruling was so that EVERY person in the country who gets robbed or hurt couldn't sue LE for damages for not being there when the person needed them. This was necessary: in this sue-happy society, can you imagine the gazillions in damages?

    That doesn't mean we are not expected and required to take risks in the line of duty. We do, and sometimes we are injured or killed trying to protect people and get the scumbags.
    That's great you were a cop, but I don't care. Just like you don't care about the number of fires I put out.

    Police are not required to put themselves in harms way. If they were, they would never wait and call for backup.

    Also, that isn't the case I am talking about. If LE were liable for our safety we would cease to live freely.
