Yup, you gotta love small town living.

The only time I see any police wondering around town is late at night when their walking through the streets with a shotgun trying to track down a thieving bear raiding everyone's gardens and fruit bushes.

Must be nice. Around here they're more into pulling you over so they can find something to ticket you for, and dealing drugs (which I've witnessed first-hand on multiple occasions).

I 100% fully agree. But it is imperative that we also remember that, as with everything, there are indeed exceptions to this new and frighteningly growing trend of police and prison/court system ineptness. A couple of summers ago, I was at Summerfest and I got separated from my fiance and friends at night--the three of us had been selling and smoking some fine cigars at a booth. I didn't know where they went--normally, if I were say, tall or perhaps a male, then maybe I wouldn't be as concerned being on my own at night on the summerfest grounds with the festival closing and drunk, possibly violent people everywhere. 48 hours hard evidence has taught me to be paranoid, but I'm ok with that lol I'm 5'2 and slim/petite. Not exactly up for some fisticuffs. I also lived in downtown Chicago by the lakefront (loyola). To quote harry potter (for lack of a better idea...), "CONSTANT VIGILANCE" haha

Being not entirely unable to care for myself, I made the autonomous decision to seek out a security officer--specifically one who was also a policeman (versus just a volunteer). And you know what, that officer kept me safe from thugs and helped me get reunited with my friends. And I didn't have to risk my safety or anything.

Or like the time on the freeway blowing a tire--the officer who stopped to ask if we needed help with the tire proceeded to watch over us for the duration and until my father arrived to guide us home as well. After, the cop actually escorted us home! (the real amazing--and hilarious--part about all this is that ___ *i can't say here actually
* lol )

So yeah, there are always good apples. Just sucks they can't have more power to keep bad ones out of the force.

I don't think it's so much about bashing cops as highlighting what actually goes down v. covering it up. Because unfortunately our society is degrading due to rampant individualism.

Thanks for sharing that. I had a guardian angel when I was living "outdoors". I slept in my vehicle sometimes around town and if other cops woke me up in the middle of the night and ran my name he would come on and reassure them I was "just alright". Sometimes he would show up at the 'scene of the harassment' to prevent things from getting out of hand.

On more than one occasion I witnessed him actually scolding other officers about wanting to give me a hard time.

While I wasn't Mr innocent all the time, this guy understood the difference between policing and boredom, something that motivates some officers to new levels of achievement.

Thank you officer, wherever you are.

When I was growing up, the police had to live in the communities where they worked.

This should be a requirement. It would help the cops remember that they are civilians, not military commandos.

Not in Florida. Small towns in Florida can be hot beds for hot headed, pro Nazi, KKK, TV, Swat Team wannabes.

Well to correct my statement I mean we as in the community (very small, tight knit). And that's true, if they act tough something big happened.


Like a good neighbor your small town cop is there.


So is your local snitch (ATF raids are hilarious).
