You sound like a good police officer.
The ones I have met in our town when my oldest son was going through a rough spell in his teens (I still haven't recovered my sanity from that period
and that was 30 + years ago) anyway, our policemen were the finest, they were nice, polite, professional and even though my son was a pain they
treated my husband and I with the utmost respect, one even saying "I feel for you, your decent people, some kids are just pain in the arses, he'll
grow up out of it I'm sure cause your good people"..................well bless this policeman because even though we had to commit our son and take
out a second mortgage to do, so we did get our oldest son straigtened out.
Another story on good policemen.
It was two o'clock in the morning (everyone asleep) and my youngest son came into our room, telling me the policeman said for me come outside now
because our garage was on fire and close to our house.
A policeman had been driving by on patrol and saw our detached garage on fire. He called the fire department, got my husband out of bed and in short
because of his quick action saved our house, we only lost our garage...............again it was my oldest smoking in the garage and he had dumped a
half lit cigerette in the trash bin.
(Our oldest was really a pain to raise).
Not all police are bad, there are many good ones..............but keep in mind, at sometime, with the way our governments are going each and everyone
of us will have to choose whom we really serve.
Would you simply do anything to "follow orders"? That is the big question and everyone in law enforcement, security and the military should really
think on that one question............at what point do you "not follow orders"?
I would guess in your case, by your post, you seem like a good person and are a decent human being with conscious, someone deserves to pat you on the
back. I wouldn't want your job.
Now I don't know if COPS is a real reality show or staged, my youngest likes to watch it and it makes me very nervous just watching some of the
dangerous, obnoxious people the police have to deal with on a daily basis............my dog, heck most dogs and cats have more dignity and follow
Some of the people on COPS and Wild Police Chases are really scary people, I wouldn't want to deal with.
And the poster that did say, and in thinking it over, yes this was a sporting event and personally, I've been to soccer matches, love soccer with the
men running around in shorts
they get me really excited, very intense game................but I would no more think of climbing down onto the
playing field nor climbing onto a stage to approach a actor. You watch the game, concert or play and go home in a peaceful orderly manner.
The security did seem to desend upon this man though and go overboard, but than he had no business down on the playing field.
One thing I've seen change over the past several decades, people in general are getting meaner, more tense, more in your face obnoxious and that
includes people all across the board.
Why can't people just try to be nice and peaceful?
My user name is "ofhumandescent" but sometimes I really feel like I am from another planet. I don't understand people being so rude and obnoxious on
a daily basis.
Glad I don't have to deal with the public.
