I disagree...what the hell is this all about if you don't reply to people whatever the reason?? Come to that, I wasn't replying to you. What is your problem??
Originally posted by iandhI can also confirm this. While not all cops are rocket scientists, in general, most are of at least average or slightly above average intelligence. Many are very intelligent. Out of probably 30 cops I know on a first name basis, roughly half have a Bachelor's degree or better education... and not always in a field related to criminal justice. Interestingly enough, I am not in a county that requires a Bachelor's to qualify for employment as a LEO... yet many of the deputies here are well educated. Many people do not even know that some departments require higher education just to be eligible to try out for a career in law enforcement.
When a person insults the intelligence of a police officer, there is a very good chance that that "stupid" cop is more educated than they are.

Everytime I hear one of you guys talking about defending yourself physically from a cop that you don't feel has a right to stop you, for whatever reason, I cringe.
You swing on some young hothead cop, he is liable to kill you because of his inexperience.
You swing on some old cop like me and he is liable to do the same thing because he wants to go home that night and he knows that you are a third his age and your stamina is a lot longer than his. Either way, it's a bad ending for everyone.
You sound like a bunch of school children. Grow up and step into the real world.
Contribute something to society to make it better and quit this rediculous crap.

you can record whatever you want but if you are in an accident and you are interfering or not cooperating then this changes things. it seems like everyone here who dislikes cops is looking for reasons to cause problems when something happens. people who continuously get pulled over turn around and blame the cop. why?
how about taking responsibility for your actions not in front of me but to yourself.
the same people that bi@ch and complain about police officers are the same ones.
violating the laws we are sworn to enforce.
so for those who hate cops and think we are all scumbags
when you need to be pulled out of a car thats on fire, assist you when your lost, find the person who robbed you
and stole your car, came to your house because there was a home invasion......
we are good in your eyes now, but when YOU violate a law and we write YOU a ticket. we are the bad guy, right?
This is my first experience on this type of site. If I made a mistake it wasn't due to any haste, it was a simple mistake.
As for the rest of your comment, I don't need to brag.
My family and I are very secure unto ourselves, thankyou.
Why does that threaten you?
It seems to me half the people on this site stopped taking their meds a long time ago.
