Seriously, why do people feel the need to attack cops at every oppurtubnity they get? Most of the threads are completely ludicrous accusations, in
situations where the circumstances are not fully known or understood.
Now dont get me wrong, I understand that there are bad cops....its obvious. Some do take their power for granted, and use it excessively, and in many
cases, their actions are unwarranted. These cops should be exposed, and in my opinion, taken out of the police force altogether, particularly when it
involves someone being harmed. However, the vast majority of police officers out there, are actually doing some good things for the public. They are
every day people with families, friends, kids.....yet when it comes to it, people treat them like absolute garbage, side with criminals, and in some
cases, even laugh or express pleasure when they see a cop injured or killed. Disgraceful.....
Its funny how so many are quick to criticise, but if they were in certain situations, Im sure they would be crying out for help from police officers.
Now I know all of you will deny this and say you can handle those situations yourself, but I seriously doubt this. How many of you out there have
actually stopped a bank robbery, or saved the life of a civilian in a hostage situation? How many of you are willing to put yourself in harms way to
deal with situations such as the North Hollywood Bank Robbery? I bet the number is almost non-existant. These men and women are trained to be in
situations like this, and put others before themselves. Very few of you know how difficult it is to be in a situation where you have to make a
decision almost immediately, yet it seems that nobody knows, or cares about those points....deny ignorance indeed.
I just want to reinforce that I think the cops that do stuff wrong, or think they are above everyone because they have a nice shiny badge, should be
brought to attention. But stop putting all your eggs in one basket.....there are great cops out there that do the job they are supposed to do, they
are not all a-holes.
PS- I bet there are many of you that hold personal grudges due to stuff you have done in the past, and I bet very few of you have the balls to admit
that you did the wrong thing in the past, and the police officer you had a confrontation with was just doing his/her job.
