Man i stopped doing drugs and i barely drink - i'm lucky if i get a pint a month.
Just cause i'm sticking up for the people oppressed by the social conditioning of the community we are in.
The fact is that some people just won't
open up their hearts to others, maybe it's cause they have history, maybe it's because they're so
damn riled up inside they want to hit someone.
So say someone came along and fired you from your top-job position as the CEO's chief advisor or something like that, where you really think you
might be in with a chance of being CEO, are you saying you wouldn't be pissed?
It's a miracle a guy like that picks bar fights instead of going Postal.
Maybe not everyone in society is as open-minded about life as you, did you ever think of that?
Now i know that it's supposed to be a good thing to be open-minded, but you gotta remember that it doesn't matter how damn wise or spiritual you
are, your emotions will still bring you down if you let them.
I'm not condoning violence, but at the end of the day those police are only rounding up drunks because they're a risk to public or private property
- they might feel like they're "protecting the innocent"; F they might even believe it.
But the Cops you see out on the street ARE NOT IN CONTROL.
They're the same as You And Me, they're slaves to the system - there'll be quite a few who hate the job because of it.
+ When the Sergeant goes over your head and charges the drunk despite what you say 'To meet the quota', that can tick a guy off - especially if he
emphasizes with the guy.
Y'know, it's probably actually drilled into rookie's heads that if they're dealing with a violent miscreant that they HAVE to use the taser-gun,
simply because of the fact that they don't have the experience to deal with people in a melee fight.
You tell the rookie to get back and cover your ass with the stun-gun, And that's all he ever does
Being a Cop is not a career where you're guarenteed not to be hurt.
Do we give firefighters those $10,000 cooling suits to protect them from the flames they fight?
Do we give Paramedics weapons to defend themselves if they happen upon a scene where the assailant has returned?
I agree that we should show pride in our officers on the beat, but i can't be proud of the officers sitting in the offices.
