Found this, it was no surprise the results. I assumed it to be that way. I just did not think they would admit it.

Police are sworn to uphold the constitution.

A police officer did a survey on other police officers about their oath of office.

Results may astound some. Skip down to page 10 and below for the juicy info if you like.

Most of police surveyed openly admit to willingly breaking their oath.

Something needs to be fixed here.

I really did not know where to file this, Mods please place where appropriate.

They have to enforce whatever "policy" of local jurisdiction. Thats why they are called "police".

"I didn't know I was going to have to break the law when I signed up."

Welcome to the real world, kid.

there isn't a legal definition for "uphold" as it relates too said oaths.... so it dont mean jack squat...

No law dictionary definition. Ok there is a definition to be used here then.
to defend or maintain a principle or law, or to state that a decision that has already been made, esp. a legal one, is correct:

They have to swear to this to be a cop.
So if they don't follow they are not living up to thier obligation. Should be fired. Charged with purger y. Sued in claims court.
If they charged you with a crime then more charges follow. Because they will want money. Racketeering extortion. Dereliction of duty. Maybe false arrest, false imprisonment. I few others i bet if i looked harder. If the judge won't dismiss the case he is in violation of not upholding the constitution too. Not to mention racketeering and extortion and purger y. And should be fired.

LEO's have rules.
1. They make up the rules.
2. Refer to #1

The forecast is for hail. The metallic kind.

Taking an oath means you'll do your best to uphold the law despite all the hurdles of politics and harsh realities and crazies you will face. And sometimes your best gets trumped.

I read somewhere where "Sleep in your bed tonight, not in your coffin" is the unofficial oath. Maybe it was here.
