    Cops don't have to care if I distrust them. They just need to know that if they act too improperly that I'm armed.

    When you really need a cop, they're 10 minutes away. Don't rely on them to save your life, rely on yourself.

    You do realize that your posts right now are proving many of the negative stereotypes that cops have?

    Based on my experience as a policeman I know you are wrong.


    Can you give you experiences where you personally could not rely upon the police to save your life.

    More often than not, they are driving in the opposite direction.

    Based on my experience with physics, I know you cannot teleport. I mean, if you could be there to "protect" everyone, why are there murders? Why is there rape? Why is there theft? I mean, come on you can be right there at that time, yes? Or is it that it actually takes transfer of information first and foremost to alert the police and then there is a necessary time lag until they get there? Hmm? Maybe? Possibly? That or cops can break the laws of physics, and if so I'd like to know. How do you get around the whole physics thing?
