Like I said in another thread, you never hear about the millions of cops doing their jobs - just the rotten apples.
Sensationalism be damned, people need to hear that good stuff like this happens...in fact, I'm betting we'd find out it happens more often then we
think, despite all the garbage news outlets barf.
For every cop we hear about that shoots someone unjustifiably, there's GOT to be a hundred more that we don't hear about NOT shooting people
It's sick, but for some reason, people doing their jobs correctly without incident just doesn't make the news - and you could apply that to either
the public or private sectors. So, when all the public's exposure to cops (in this case) is all negative, it's no wonder that people knee-jerkedly
hate cops. I'm not saying that there aren't cops out there that shouldn't be hated, I'm saying that for every bad thing you hear on the news
about some employee, assume there's a hundred folks in the same line of work who aren't like that at all.
I guess my rambling point is this:
Once you realize just how the media works, you can avoid a lot of unnecessary hatred and embarrassment.
