Even as a kid I remember every cop car in the city had the motto of 'To Serve and Protect'. I just happened to notice one car without that motto drive down my street. What's up with that?

Because they no longer serve and protect. They enforce and control.

I think they're waiting for the new stencils:

"To Kill or Imprison"

or maybe:

"Obey or we Shoot"

Peace

Ive been saying this to anyone who will listen for a few years now. It is no longer "to serve and protect". The ideology is now "law enforcement", which, changes the entire mindset of cops, making everyone a "suspect" instead of a "civilian".

Scary, scary stuff.

It's not to serve and protect... It's to profile and document the unwashed masses tearing eachother apart, then dividing up the war booty after

Yup seems that way now-a-days.

Where I live I noticed the to protect and serve is gone as well. They have also had new stickers that say "Protect, Serve and enforce" . But I'm sure they're not enforcing the constitution with the new slogan, more like protect the government, serve the government and enforce a police state :p

It does seem weird the words changed though..

Why promote false advertising? At least they are now being honest in that regard.

The USSC agrees with you..

www.nytimes.com...


WASHINGTON, June 27 - The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.


Your safety isn't always, if ever, their concern. On a personal anecdotal note, I know cops here here I live that do follow the creed of serve and protect, even if it isn't what they are told to do.

I am curious, have there been significant changes in the training of police officers in the past 10 years? Or is social media and the omnipresence of camera equipped cellphones just exposing the few bad apples like never before?

Because either there has been a shift in how police are trained, or just more incidents make it to the public consciousness.

It's all about the Benjamins baby. It has been for quite some time now.

There are still some good officers out there who do try to help the people. But if you look at the way funding is set up and the strings that come with the federal monies, you can see that priorities have definitely changed.

Oh fer pete's sake! It's decided by each department and/or their funding body. It's different in every town. There's no conspiracy here beyond some bureaucrat saying "Let's go with *that* one for the new cars".
