Yeah i agree it was weird, i could tell they were viewing me as an outsider the entire time, like apprehensively.
They really do have this us vs them mentality.
Ever try to talk to a cop? Just talk? They are eye balling everything you do and suspicious of everything you say.
You aren't part of their above the law group so you aren't important. Ever try to talk to a cop? Just talk? They are eye balling everything you do and suspicious of everything you say. Best approach? None at all. Leave them alone, don't talk to them unless you absolutely have to. They are setting themselves above everyone else and you have no rights unless they allow you to have them in their presence.
I have to say not all cops are this way but the majority seem to be so the odds are not in our favor.
I know in my small town the cops are snooty and will not talk to anyone not involved in the justice system and will continually recuit their friends to the force, while passing people who desire to help others by being cops.

As for talking to Police...I don't do it unless absolutely necessary.
You'll find that people who treat the police suspiciously........ will usually be treated suspiciously by the police.
