In numerous states there are programs for just such things....
Here is SC we have the State Constable Program, and the Reserve Officer Program... Both are somewhat restrictive, but along the lines of what your talking about...

I think "hate" is the wrong word here.......
It comes from incidents of:
State trooper arrested for soliciting a Minor for sex Link
cop arrested for murder link
cop arrested on drug charges link
cop arrested for pot link
cop arrested for domestic assault link
cop arrested for DUI link
cop arrested for arson link
See my point ? It is not hate...but mistrust we have of the police. Why should a off-duty cop get off for speeding by the cop pulling him over as a act of "professional courtesy" when I do not ??
It is mistrust..pure and simple.
If someone REALLY wants to be a help to the community........be a Fireman or a Paramedic.......to be a cop means you want to exert authority over someone....try politics if thats what you want.

You do know that cops are just people like you and me. Anyone can get busted doing these things. Why would I look at a cops and think "cops busted for drugs" but not look at my mailman and think that? Or even my physician? The guy at the video store?

I don't "hate" cops. I do know that all of the police that I've encountered, save for 2, have threatened me, called me 'n-word', beat me, or illegally searched me. Maybe because I "fit the description"
