Well this will be my last post probably, maybe im just young and stupid, but i'll tell you this, all i carry are the necessary items (radio, gun,
handcuffs, and gloves), i am trained and certified to use mace, batons, asps, and tazers. And i will admit even i am afraid of tazers, i got tazed
and it sucks beyond all reason. I still jump a little when i hear one go off. Its nice to know that the effects only last 5 seconds though. Unless
you get hit with the shotgun round thats coming out, which is a 20 second ride
But back on topic, i talk to the kids in my town, i take the time to talk to citizens when they are out (i work 10PM to 6AM), i am only 21 but i grew
up with cops, my father was one and cops were at my house all the time because of it. I have never been afraid of a cop. I am that old school type
of cop that the older generations remember.
Not once have i ever injured anyone i have arrested, i have the kids of the town talking to me before anyone else. And for anyone who wants to know,
i am already working on the development of a program to get cops active in communities again. They were my sports coaches, community leaders, and all
that good stuff, and i want that back.
intense, sharp, overmastering fear..... violence or threats of violence used for intimidation or coercion... Violence committed or threatened by a
group to intimidate or coerce a population, as for military or political purposes. Those are 3 definitions of terror. None if which i believe cops
cause. Unless you did something and are afraid of being caught.
Cops don't use violence or threats of it for coercion or intimidation, and its not for political or military reasons... We do use it to enforce the
laws you voted for, we do use it to catch and control criminals.
Now if u define terror with this definition, a person or thing that is especially annoying or unpleasant, then ya I'm a terrorist, but so is your 5
year old cousin and creepy old uncle.
I'm not saying some cops aren't dirty or corrupt, but terrorist? rly? I'm afraid not... way to strong of a label.
