Explanation: Thanks for your 1st post revealing you are a shill.
RE: "Being an aspiring Police Officer myself
, I cannot help but feel utterly offended by all of the hatred spewed from the
people of ATS." [Note: All bold, italics and underline for my emphasis.]
If you feel offended then maybe you shouldn't partake in threads Titled " Cop haters, this thread is for you."! Seems you walked in exactly where
you weren't wanted!
Maybe you should rethink that job occupation you have been seeking!
Now on to wikipedia...Yep its a source of "the people" and that in and of itself is a "realm of common sense" and I provided it only in that
context regardless of whether that common sense is accurate or not. Would you have posted if the links were to say the encyclopedia Britanica or the
World encyclopedia etc? The links FYI were used in an umbrella fashion and were not intended to show specific individual cases of corruption.
Anyhow, regardless of wikipedia's reputation [or lack there of,] for accurate reporting of information, to discount the information contained within
wikipedia out off hand without 1st researching the voracity of its sources and more importantly the issue as regards to the specific wiki pages
information that was referenced, is a clear case of myopia and a subtle attempt to ad hominen wikipedia!
Wiki Biased? Yep! That is TOTALLY NOT THE POINT! The point is, is that bias VALID? In this specific case I KNOW IT IS! Why? I've Tested it!
[See below for details of this one incident!]
I note that it seems that you only have problems with wiki! Does that mean you endorse the other links that I have provided. What about the link
provided by PSUSA? I'm not the only one providing answers to the OP's question and yet you single me out for special attention! Is that because I
was bang on the money with my post and you as a shill can't be with the standing of that? [Note: Its a question and not a statement and I do want an
Now as for finding stuff about good cops...well I did provide that link to the missing "GOOD" cop who was totally screwed over by his own kind and
so when you start attributing words like "You are so entrenched in your belief hole as I am that you closed your mind to the possibility that you are
wrong about the 'fact' that all cops are pigs, and that anyone that will be a cop, like myself, will be corrupted."....... to me , when I have
clearly not posted anything regarding pigeonholing the whole demographic of LEO's as "pigs", makes me view your shill status in a whole new light.
Care to RETRACT?
Finally as to caring about the cops and how no one actually seems to care for them but the cops themselves. Well maybe in my case, that is because I
have never PERSONALLY asked the LEO's to and yet they think that I need their protection and or help! FYI I am NOT a Victim OK!
Personal Disclosure: OL has mental health issues and last Febuary when the Victorian bushfires had JUST wiped out Kinglake etc I became quite
prodromal due to my violent paranoid schizophrenia and I was quite homicidal and I acted appropriately by calling the metal health crisis team. It was
a full moon and sunday night just after midnight and the cops were pushed to the limit with what had just happened [even though its canberra ,
victoria is ever so close] and this is what went down.
I reach the crisis team assesor and they accurately ID me as both homicidal and suicidal [I was valid in calling them!] and they arranged for the
police to come and pick me up and transport me to the ER and so I sit outside for OVER A FFREAKING hour and then I call the crisis team again and I am
informed that the police are giving them the runaround by asking for a form that they KNOW DOES NOT EXIST! I ask if I can ride my bicycle
in...Nope..can I walk in?.....Nope! "The cops have to do it!" was the reply and at this point I exploded in frustration and said that we had reached
an impass and I offered to call the cops and they reluctantly agreed. So I call the cops and I get this male officer who tells me that "yes they are
aware and I'll just have to wait as it really isn't their job to be a taxi service for mental patients!"...I quite simply replied with a matter of
fact "It most certainly is your job when the blood flows!" and I slammed the phone down and prepared myself to go methodically slaughter the
entities on my list. Needless to say that within like 5mins flat a paddy wagon hooned on up to my place sporting the youngest female officer fresh
from Goulburn Police Academy and the oldest male officer I have ever seen [he had a very noticable limp
WTF?] and they were clearly terrified of me
[wild eyes and hands on unclipped holster ready to draw] when it should of been clear to them that I had dobbed myself in willingly! :shk:
ended up being quite friendly once I had put them at ease and I took both their no#'s and I put in a commendation for them.
P.S. NOTE: I did not start out by attacking the LEO's from my own biased experience. Instead I answered the OP's question as best I could including
being transparent about my biases! I only provide this personal experience here because you implied [wrongly] that I had a hard and fast inflexible
negetive opinion of you and your ilk and my personal experience says otherwise, but only on a case by case basis. Generally though, as a collective
group, LEO's are in it for themselves and for the benifits to THEM that it brings far more than "To Serve and Protect!" first or why aren't they
working for free if they are really so concerned about the greater good!
If LEO's are so freaking great then why is there still a need for
them? Seems to me that they seriously have an over inflated opinion of themselves as they haven't put themselves out of a job just yet!
