I don't care what kind of day you had, you don't get to "pay it forward".
Having a bad day isn't license to be an asshole, especially if you armed, and your job us to deal with less than agreeable people all day.
This is how it should go:
Sgt. or whomever does the daily briefing.
Then he says "who here feels that the public is at war with them, and the only important thing is to get home safe, raise your hands?"....
All raise their hands.
Sgt: OK. Turn in your badge and gun, and go home, you're fired.
That's how it should be.
You signed up, you get paid well (don't lie and say they don't..most get in the high 5 digit range or more).
If you are scared, quit.
Nobody begged you to join, nobody is sure as hell begging you to stay.
Your cowardice is unacceptable, and yes, if you walk around with that batman belt full of weapons, back up available in seconds, and the full power of
the state ready to forgive you of most anything, and you still "feared for your life", then yes, you are a coward.
