I don't think it is cynicism as much as it is people using their BS filter. The bottom line is, when people are telling true stories, they don't bother with all of that descriptive nonsense like where the mom is fixing her hair to look presentable.

Look at how the majority of people blog, and then look at this story.

Also, police officers refer to themselves as "Cops". I know this word is perceived to offend people, but it really doesn't offend cops among other cops. A friend of a cop would have no problem referring to his friend as a cop.

Also...........It's interesting how many strikes this kid has going against him. Single mom, lives in a trailor, dad ran out at the age of 5. Blah blah blah. It's just too much.

This kid wou;d more than likely be a bit of a punk with all of that going against him and a real cop, hate to say it, would never be like this.

My guess, this is posted by a pro-police troll that is trying to generate some sympathy for "officers" because ATS has a knack for exposing the nightmare police forces of this country.

For god's sake, who capitalizes "officer"

BOOOOO for trying to play on the emotions of people on the this site who really are hungry to hear good news.

Agreed, and from a "Super Moderator" you'd expect some sort of substantial back-up other than, someone, somewhere said something! No sorrce, no links, no confidence.

As mentioned previously, How so? What possible source or link Would there be?

Well, for starters, where in this big 'ol world would this incident have occured? Did the police officer make a report on the case?

Print the newspaper account of the local paper or the fire fighters report. How about the copy of the receipt of the "friend, he is more like a brother" officer who paid for the restitution to the State Property owner?

Everyone else must give "sources" and "links" and "documentation" as proof. If I did a bad-cop thread with no backup other than, "I have a good friend that said...bla bla bla" I would be getting a warning right away.

Ha ha ha ha ha

This account is being met with skepticism? Disbelief? Cynicism?

That's just perfect......!

What more evidence can anyone ask for to confirm the effect of media programming on the general media-consumer population?

Is it really THAT hard to believe? Are some of our friends so hopelessly conditioned that they cannot even consider a police officer capable of humane conduct without repulsion and repugnance? That's pretty weak.

Like it or not, we are limited in this world to actions by humans. Some are good, some are bad, some switch off being one or the other.

Why would such a tale be fabricated? What grand scheme does it serve to present a sliver of human decency amongst what is otherwise an MSM shower of gut-wrenching angst and appalling displays of brutality? Does it threaten things somehow? Does the action offer the risk that some may not automatically hate, anticipate hatred, or evoke hatred, at the sight of an officer?

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.....

But if he's wearing a badge he's going to shoot you.

i do belive this peace officer has put the HOPE back in a number of us myself included for as a child i had a similar experiance and i think the fact i knew the face and name of our local policeman and had my collar felt and marched off to my mom for throwing stones at things where upon one look at him from my mother i got a nice whack across the head needless to say he did stick up for me and say it wasnt so bad but it wasnt good either regardles you catch more flys with honey than you do with vinegar and id like to thank that officer for not breading HATE into the police and putting the most beautiful of humanity on things for the day they stoped being peace officers and became police officers they forever changed the dynamic of law and order if i had my way all the police would be on foot or on bicycles again and integrated into the comunity now they respond in such numbers arriving at a scene all hyped up and ready to do battle like a military unit making the comon man feel regardless of his crime if a crime was comited at all like an out law terrorist or some malitia member and it has long been the impresion given that you are in fact guilty until proven innocent
truly unnamed officer THANK YOU

S&Fs for you! Man, I am not much for cops, but that is mainly because they are night and day compared to your friend. Every cop I see nowadays is abusing their power. I wish EVERY cop was like your friend there. Not just in the US, but worldwide.

Peace Officer (human, citizen) vs LEO (statute enforcer, tax man)

There are a few of each in every department. I have met both in my youth and younger adult life.

The whole thing is people, do you act this way in your jobs or positions?

Thanks for the story OP. Inspired me to attempt to resemble his actions in my own life, more than I do now.

As for the kid, I found his actions to be more inspiring. There actually may be a chance if more kids were as responsible and actually level headed enough to take action, instead of being an idiot, so to speak. I would say someone that actually has come to that point in life that they take corrective action for a mistake and then to face the consequences of their actions to be a full fledged adult and to be inspiring.

Could you imagine if our politicians and others in government service were to actually take responsibility for their actions.

i totally disagree with the premise of your post. like it is some kind of surprise that a kid shows emotional weakness. they are all like that. its a fatherless and motherless society. even if they have fathers and mothers, it does not matter. the father and mother figures these days are totally weak, shadows of themselves to start with.

there is no strength out there. i bet you got a nice hard on from seeing this prototypical little rascal, all "disheveled and dirty" and you standing there in your orcish NWO issued blue uniform.

the subtle narcissism and sadistic/masochistic mentality in your post is eye opening.

enjoying your power over others, orc?

Boy ... you're a real piece of work there Skippy.

That you apparently registered an account just to post such negative nancy nonsense speaks volumes with regards your character, person, being, self, and or life in general ... or better yet, perhaps, the complete and absolute lack thereof.

Even though there may exist a degree of that which you speak in today's society as a whole, to view the same as being commonplace and an across the board majority sure must make for a rather pathetic and pitiful day-to-day strife and struggle. :shk:

My life sucks; so I'll just project my miserable existence onto everyone around me. Yeah. That's it.

Here's an exercise my drill instructor in the Air Force taught us:

- cross your arms in front of you and grab hold of both ears.
- pull hard and yell "Pop!"

Good. Now you got your head out of your backside. Keep it that way.

I swear, the depth of depravity some feel the need to stoop too never ceases to amaze me. :shk:

I'll guarantee that it wasn't.

How, well I can't, but it wasn't this exact story, with these people in this city.

What an uplifting and inspiring story. It's always nice to read something besides doom and gloom. Many blessings to this officer and to the family.

Hi community.

Id like to reply twice to this but on this reply I think the OP is 100% sincere and honest.

There a couple who demand a police report because they think this is beyond possible this could of happened?!!!!!????

Well,,police save 100's of lives everyday and help deliver babies,help lost children and break downs on the highway,,might be shocking to you they also at times perform CPR while off duty to save a life..

Yes,,theres a few here who are brainwashed on when they hear about"Cop tazers granny" or such.

I suppose if a garbage man,postal worker,,changed places with the cop you'd probly ignore this thread all together?

And yes,,theres bad apples in all fields or work.

I also think is was well written just fine.
There is no conspiricy/hidden truth or lies here on the OP's thread.

Good things do happen and theres good people in all fields and walks of life!

My first chance to see what was on the board today and what a pleasant surprise. I'd already ruined my day be watching the news this morning and this picked me right up.

Then as I read through the pages the haters and the hatred starts to rear its ugly head. It seems they are like a plague with its primary symptom to promote negativity at all costs and a form of cynicism that sucks the air out of a room as they enter.

My first thought was, that sounds very much like the Cops in the town I spent most of my childhood in. A town were when we were caught doing wrong, we were immediately driven to our Parents for the worst possible punishment. The embarrassment of being delivered home in a Police Car. I never got mad at the Officer, nor did I ever fear them. We knew if there was trouble they were on our side.

It reminded me of the two times, yes two, I managed to start a fire in a field. Both times a kindly neighbor came and saved me by putting it out. I miss that sense of community. I miss it a lot. They did not bother to talk to my Parents, they scolded me themselves as did everyone's Parents in the neighborhood. All the Parents watched for each others kids.

It's not that they don't still exist, because they do, it's having to live in these damn big, heartless cities to earn a living. I'll never understand how we ever came to the point that we decided to live in sardine cans, stacked atop one another. I think that is what makes people so cynical and rude.

Amazing how people will attack a persons post like this, even though the poster has earned credibility and respect and is well known. Very sad indictment on where we are headed I think.

I suppose people who hate all Cops and slander them on a regular basis, have their reasons. Me, I've never had a negative experience with one I did not deserve and since becoming a mature adult, I've never had any interaction with them other than social. Funny thing, if you are friendly to them and they can tell you are not a Cop Hater, even when they pull you over, they are friendly about giving you a ticket and usually don't even bother with the ticket.


Thanks so much for the morning pick-me-up. Kudos to your friend. He made a difference; he matters. Your lucky to have such a friend.
