I don't have a problem with police officers, but I feel like they are somewhat slack when they let new recruits in, and hand them an ego-booster 9000
to their hip. I feel in order to carry a firearm you need to complete an apprenticeship type thing. Otherwise, stick with your taser, mace and baton
while out in the field with an experienced cop for at least a few years.
You wouldn't let a first year apprentice welder start welding up sky scrappers with 20+ pass welds would you? Same sort of deal.
But, I remember seeing a cartoon once where it showed in the first scene a police officer yelling at someone, and all these cell phones pointed at the
situation, and then in the next two people yelling at the officer and no cell phones to be seen.
People love to hate authority, people love to think they know everything and are right in all situations. And act like they are above the law, and
that the law enforcers should be perfect Aryan humans who have no flaws.
For example, I worked in a kitchen for 5 years, I was the kitchen manager, when I was there everyone who worked in that kitchen thought they knew
everything about everything. And unless I was a strict, authoritative douche, nothing would go smoothly, the saying "to many chefs in the kitchen"
is what explains my scenario. But when we would hangout after work, or have a few drinks they were astonished by how relaxed and laid back I was
outside of the kitchen, which made them respect me even more.
Same story goes with police officers, but of course on a more extreme scale, people don't see them as people they see them as 'trouble' and get all
defensive, even if they are completely innocent.
