People think it is cool to attack, ridicule, and disrespect Police just because they have a badge and a gun. They don't think about the fact that
these people have families and have to go through person after person, most of which give them hell. Can you blame a person for being a bit edgy?
Granted, there are those cops that go overboard and on people that were completely innocent, but those cops are few and far between. Don't let your
emotions cloud your judgment. Just because millions of people watch a video on Youtube that depicts a cop abusing his power, it does not equate to a
million cops abusing their power.
Maybe, just maybe, we can all work together to change things. If people were a bit respectful and polite to the Police, the cops would be polite and
respectful right back at you. If you are impatient and want to run your mouth at a cop, chances are more and more people will do the same thing to the
same cop, and that same cop may be a little testy on someone that may or may not have deserved it. Would you be rude to someone that didn't have a
badge just because? Then why would you do it to someone just because they DID have a badge? Is that any better than someone pushing someone around
just because they had a badge?
What people fail to realize is that they are just as much to blame for this situation as anyone else. If you took the time to be polite to an officer,
he or she will most likely return the favor, unless people were jerks to him or her up to the point of your encounter with said officer. You should
still be polite to people no matter what.
