I'm an airline pilot.
You would be amazed with some of the stories I could tell you.
...still, airplane travel is the safest way of getting around the world.
Get my point..?

it is attitudes such as yours which already put you on the path of being a pig. Right away you're overly sensitive about your position in life and I'd bet in short order, you'd be one of those pigs that wants to 'teach them uppity intellectuals a lesson' to assuage your own ego or hide your sub par penis size. From the get go, you're showing yourself to be a jar headed pre programmed and package wrapped 'officer' who think he's somehow better or above the rest of 'those people'
It appears that never in your brainwashed rant did you ever really question yourself as to if some of these people might have a point.
Do us all a favor and get a job that doesn't allow you to be armed.

Most people in here that are crying about how bad the cops behave, are the same that pick up their phone the second they hear something inside the house. Which, to me, is pathetic.

4 cops get killed and some say it's because they are dirty. That's a pretty bold claim. There's no info about why yet. Oh, but wait!!! even if we get the info it's probably tarnished by the Thin Blue Line.
So the Kernel asks you, how many abuses of power do you think are perpetrated by police in a given year?
The Kernel would like to deal in FACTS, not speculation.

Police on an average 1 to 1 ratio, have a MUCH more dangerous job than military.
The 10 most dangerous jobs
Occupation Fatalities per 100,000
Timber cutters 117.8
Pilots and navigators 69.8
Structural metal workers 58.2
Drivers-sales workers 37.9
Electrical power installers 32.5
Farm occupations 28
Construction laborers 27.7
Truck drivers 25
Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics; survey of occupations with minimum 30 fatalities and 45,000 workers in 2002
Mass people + no law enforcement, and we become savage, chaotic animals.
Get this the police are inept, they are incompetent when the minimum educational qualification for the job is a high school diploma what would you expect?
Spend any time talking to these useless dregs of society, you will realize that they are in fact useless, or better yet personalities that were bullies in high school who managed to go out and find a job that allowed them to continue their bulling and get paid for it.
I have yet to meet a single detective that was smart enough or capable enough to detect their own backside seated in a chair.
Every time they let someone out of a traffic ticket for having a booster sticker in the window of their car, or are handed a courtesy card that is corruption it is effectively a bribe. Not to mention anytime they let another officer out of a ticket just because they are an officer.
Every time they are sitting at a traffic light and decide to turn their lights on just to get out of waiting they have effectively abused their authority.
Every time they go down a street faster than the posted speed limit with no actual pursuit going on they have abused their authority.
Every time they accept food/drink from any establishment without paying for it they have accepted a bribe.
Every time they stand silent when one of their own has done something criminal they have made themselves just as guilty as the one who did it.
Not to mention the harassment they tend to dish out to anyone who dare dates their ex husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend. Or little brother/sisters undesirable significant other for that matter.
How many willingly and unlawfully bend the rules for their own friends and family?
But these are the stellar and brave people that we are supposed to bow down to and respect. The majority have abused their office in one form or another. Yet you will get the morons who cry this is ok because they are the police. If there were half as many good ones that respected their office as there were bad ones people would have no complaints because the good ones would not tolerate the bad.
