near as cool as some of the stories ive read
good thing for the cops that people still trust them for the most part, because the cops are hopelessly outnumbered if push were to come to shove.

On with the regularly scheduled Cop Bashing...
consider the fact that the police haven't even been around for two-hundred years.
The first police force comparable to present-day police was established in 1667 under King Louis XIV in France
In Western culture, the contemporary concept of a police paid by the government was developed by French legal scholars and practitioners in the 17th and early 18th centuries, notably with Nicolas Delamare's Traité de la Police ("Treatise on the Police"), first published in 1705
After much deliberation in Parliament, the British statesman Sir Robert Peel in 1829 established the London Metropolitan Police, which became the world's first modern organized police force.
