When it comes down to it, police are there for ONE reason. To uphold the status quo.
Period.

So if you're not in that part of society, you're the enemy to them. That's how they are trained.

Maybe in the 60's...but now-a-days CPR (courtesy, professionalism, respect) is drilled in every way shape and form...try 7 monthes of behavioral science classes in the academy STRICTLY dealing with this subject...

i'm sorry buddy...........don't know you............and based on your comments i don't want to.

to make a statement that ALL cops are crooked is the equivalent of saying EVERY man is a flaming ARSE!!!

you can't say that.

there are some cops that are crooked and there are some men that are flaming ARSE'S...........but not ALL of either group is all bad!!!

geesh...............what a very WRONG mindset.

i'm sorry you feel that way and i hope at some point in your life you can sit and rethink your outlook.

these folks give their lives on a daily basis to protect YOU..............you don't have to LOVE them..............but show them some RESPECT......and definitely DON'T lump them all in to one big group called CROOKED COPS.....cause that's not the truth.

the truth is out there buddy..............you need to go find it.

Angie you have to understand a majority of them are bad in some way so that may give the good ones a bad name.If you did an (lets call it)experiment in every state of the united states I strongly think that you would find a strong percentage of that states law enforcement agency would be corrupt in some way.

Every major department has an internal affairs...NYPD has less then 1% corruption rate...and its a random test...and if anyone is suspected of corruption...theyll test that individual w/o their knowledge...99% pass...NYPD also has a civilian run complaint board which also makes sure officers integrity is in tact...there are tests...plenty...

Ohh, that might be why. LOL...well down here in the south, the police are really bad, and I mean REALLY bad. So most cops down here are pretty bad. Like I said, people in the south are real big on authority.

you probably didn't know that I'm from the South too....


I live in the North now.... but born and raised in Kentucky....


I think you need to research, study the police all over the US, I think you'll be surprised...

Please rethink what you're saying.... I'll bet that not even 10% of the cops where you live are bad..

You're still wrong to say " in the south"....

Why not say that you FEEL that MOST of the police where you live are crooked ?

However, I still feel that you're wrong, I think that you've had a bad experience with a policeman or two or someone has told that they have and now you have a bad taste in your mouth about cops....

amber i'll give you lawyers and politicians but the rest of the examples are kinda funny.The rest of the examples you gave hold no authority.Grocery store managers aren't the ones digging thru my pockets searching me.

Hmmm...is it 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL' to sit in the medium and make "speed traps"? I believe so.

hey u can have your opinion & critique mine if u choose or whatever but damn near everycop i've run into has voilated me in some way. From grabbin my crotch heh which should not be routine when im driving home not breaking the law, speed or anything & b4 they grab my crotch they have a gun to my head & throw me on the car not caring to discuss why i was stopped or do discuss anything for that matter. Thats basically assualt physically & sexually & intent to murder. Frankly all cops can kiss my ass cuz they do this ish when im in front of my house or round the corner. Also it partially cuz that status quo but most too me are pricks around here & just wanna put me in the system so the government/them can have my cash. Everything is run by dirty Bastards
just my opinion

I've got a little story.

Had a nice 300zx and late one night I had a car-crippling accident into a telephone pole around 2 AM. My friend and I were on a stretch of road about two miles from my house, both uninjured, and after cramming the car up on the curb we quickly flag down a car. (Probably should have stood around waiting for the police? Maybe. In this situation and in my state of horror at destroying my car we got a ride so I could call somebody. I was not drunk.)
Next I arrive at my apartment and try to contact my father and mother with no answer, I try to gather my thoughts... At this point I should have called the police but seriously after being in my apartment no longer than ten minutes the fuzz is on the scene.
Unfortunately a peice of doja paraphernalia had been overlooked by myself and my room-mates, which we oh so foolishly neglected to PICK UP when the police were knocking/walking in. So they inform me I am being charged with "Failure to perform duties upon striking a stationary object over $1000" I should have taken "reasonable" steps toward contacting the police, and I was going to, its not like I was trying to hide or anything.
They give me a ticket for the paraphernalia, $250, and inform me that someone will contact me "by mail or telephone" about my class B misdemeanor, the striking of the telephone pole. So after turning over/digging through every nook and cranny in the house looking for dope/machineguns/anthrax they leave emptyhanded, (except for the original pipe that caused the search.)
Fastforward 6 months, I never received ANYTHING in the mail or by phone and was not contacted in any way about the charge. One day leaving work I did not come to a complete stop at a stop sign and was pulled over (it was kindof rediculous and I was barely moving but he snatched up the oppourtunity.) The officer gave me the ticket and thank God he didnt run my lisence right then.
On the friday after getting the ticket I went up to pay it and wrote a check. The lady behind the glass took the check and walked back to an area out of my view, I sat down and waited with the few others in the lobby. Within a minute or two she says "Theres something wrong with your receipt please wait just a moment."
My instinct told me this was taking too long after a while more of waiting and my worst fears were confirmed when an officer came from a room down the hall and said "Mr. ______, please come with me." Oh $h1t I'm thinking....
Immediately I semi panic and as I am led outside and into another building I frantically try to get a grasp on whats taking place, fearing the worst. "We just have to fill out some paperwork, no big deal" The mid 40's pudgy man with the big ol' black aviator glasses told me assuredly. I really did believe him.
So we go into the police station "meeting room" etc. and we start doing some "paperwork". Yes we did. He and another officer asked me alot of questions pertaining to my identity, SS#, tattoos, etc. etc. etc. and on in a fairly polite yet stern way and I fully believed I would walk out of that room on my own free will in a few minutes. I did not, I was soon fingerprinted and handcuffed, and taken to county where I spent 2pm to 2am.
This was my first arrest and I was clueless at first how to free myself. When you are arrested you are relieved of all your personal belongings and everything you have in your wallet, purse or whatever is all laid out on a table and written down to prevent theft. I was asking the guy taking my stuff about my phone call.. he informed me that I was to have (2) phone calls and that was it. BULL THERE WAS A PHONE IN THE CELL. This nice fellow also informed me that I would be further prosecuted because I had two old expired lisences (mine) and that that was a serious felony etc etc.
Luckily the first officer didn't know about the little joke on me and when he came back over I asked him and he said "Nah, its legal unless their still valid (Not expired)" The asshole who told me I was being further prosecuted just kept logging my belongings.
12 hours later I was able to post bail and am fighting the case currently. The point of this story is the needless and almost malicous deception on the part of 3 different people involved in my story.

As for my broad observations of every police officer I've ever encountered, some are absoultely genuinely devoted to protecting and serving their communities and I salute them and am greatful to them for this. .But, there is no way you can have a position that yeilds SO much power and influence and that is so easy to achieve relatively... and not have your average prick or even your advanced prick with all varieties of prickage hold that position sometimes and sadly.. often. The power is tempting to even the average person who has no interest in becoming an officer, you must consider the near invincibility policemen seem to have and not to mention their ability to get out of their car, walk up to you on the street and TELL YOU TO SIT ON THE CURB. "Sit down boy."

Well...theres certainly no way I could agree with the title. Given that I not only have a number of family members who are members of the Police Force, but also numerous friends as well.

Not one of them I know of is crooked.
