i respect those who respect me.
with that being said, i can say with my own experience that i have seen on both sides the good and bad.
i know cops from my town, and most of them are alright guys. even in my small town they get shot at and have to deal with raving lunatics. i get
i have also seen the bad. when i was a kid (19) i was at some friends house for a little while, and when we left, 6 cops pulled up and blocked us (2
of my other friends) in the apartment complex parking lot. the cops claimed they were researching a breaking and entering and wanted to know what we
were doing there. we said hanging out with friends. one of the cops thought it would be a good trick to say i had glass on the back of my legs, like i
had even done anything. they put me in handcuffs and labeled me prime suspect for the intrusion. if they were watching the place if they claimed, then
they would have known i was there for only 30 minutes and seen where i had come from. but of course, they searched me against my will and put me in
the car after finding a little bit of weed (i was young and dumb, but not a buglar).
my friend admitted that he had some alcohol, but blew a 0.0 and then he was in the car with me. they then went in the house and got the guy who got
them alcohol. i even heard a cop say that he could smell the alcohol on his breath. if he could, then how come the breathalyzer didnt? more lies.
i know what we were doing was a little wrong, but i have seen first hand that the cops can and will make things up to make a score.
i doubt there was even a robbery there, and its more probable they were watching my friends house. i didnt know the people there very well, but i was
in the wrong place at the wrong time.
i have seen other things which make me question the police, but i have also met some very nice people.
its pretty much flip a coin to see what reaction you will get. and thats what scares people.
dont like it, make the cops stop being unprofessional. in their line of work, nothing less should be accepted.
