Having gone on several patrol ridealongs, I've witnessed the lazy, unethical persona's these officers possess on a daily basis. Officers should "enforce" the laws in which all citizens shall abide by. Not create new one's and intimidate the vulnerable public.
    So I assume you have gone to police academy and are not just making uneducated statements about what actually takes place in the academy. In all my ride alongs, I have only witnessed honest, hard working cops that care about their work and do their best to be mediators in sticky domestic situations, and uphold the laws we deem important. On one ride along we ended up at a WalMart where a mother had been putting stuff in her 7 year old boy's pockets in an attempt to shop lift. The arresting cop had to charge her with contributing to the delinquency of a minor even though he said right in front of us that it saddens him that he has to apply this felony charge to a poor woman in a bad situation even though she chose to act in a bad manner. These police care about their citizens and they want to help people. No matter what your experiences are, they cannot be applied to all police officers.

    I do not deny that there are many mean and crooked cops out there. These are the ones we see on the news and they give the rest a bad image. But this is expected because police departments recruit from the human population were mean people exist.

    This is the point:
    Stereotypes do nothing but divide people and cause more hate in this world. Do not assume every cop is the devil.

    I am in no way whatsoever applying this tag to every officer that works a beat. I was merely stating my experience with several officers while on a patrol ridealong. The officers in my city are absolutely horrendous in the aspect of profiling ordinary citizens. On one occasion, I actually recall an officer calling a black female "a stupid ****** monkey." You're telling me this doesn't leave a negative lasting impression?

    I also attended what is called a "CPA" or Citizen Police Academy. It was exclusive to law abiding citizens who're interested in the law enforcement career field. Only 25 get in twice a year, so I took advantage of the opportunity.

    While I was in the CPA classes, I took notes on how certain officers and superiors presented themselves. Let's just say that was an awful analyzation of our so-called "protectors." The chief of police was so arrogant, he would barely shake my hand! Let alone shake like a man (hard grip). I thought I was shaking the hand of a 60lb woman for God's sake!

    I cannot wait to become a police officer. I'll show these inferior rats what I'm made of!! :)

    Well the only thing left to say about this is you have had negative experiences, and I have had positive experiences. Police are human so there are good ones and bad ones. But not all can be assumed to be shady and willing to lie.

    I completely agree with your statement. Not all humans should be treated in the same fashion because one spoils the batch.

    Lavaman: I may be wrong but you impress me as being a young person who is in dire need of a cleansing enema to rid you of all the crap you are spreading. You demean LEOs on one hand and, on the other, say you want to be one. I hardly think attendance at a "Civilian Police Academy" qualifies you to be critical of even the Chief of Police. As for showing "those inferior rats" what you are made of, you have shown just how immature you are and the need to consider an alternate career field where you can do no harm. It is easy to be critical of LEOs when you are just an observer rather than taking the risks they do on a daily basis. Are you sure you wouldn't just wet your pants in a bad situation? There were two LEOs killed down here not too long ago. They had gone out on a domestic disturbance call. Upon arrival, one was immediately shot and killed. The other was shot and killed trying to retrieve his partner. Were they "inferior rats" like you referred to? Tell that to their widows and children. Grow up son, then make your choices.

    If I told you I served 2 tours in Iraq during the worst part of the war? Would your opinion change? What if I told you I was an EOD who's job was required to help innocent bystanders and citizens continue life without a hindrance?

    Think before you type.

  8. @KK. There are LEO's that do drunk with power, and there LEO's that are outstanding officers. But the one's that do not take the spirit of the law rather the Letter of the law and them there's some that go overboard. I had an experience last March with La County Sherrif Dept. Where I had taken somebodydown at gun point in my front yard, there were two men breaking into my car. They left in a hurry and crashed a block away. But when the Sherrif Deputies arrived I was immediately handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car. They then entered my house searching for more weapons, they went into my workshop and began throwing everything to the ground and they found my safe open because I removed a rifle for the prior incident so the started taking rifles out. They deemed that three rifles and one handgun to be illegal so they seized the weapons and I was arrested for having illegal Assult Riflea in my possession which was untrue (I am in Ca) I was them arrested for those charges also the handgun they said was not registered which it is. I was taken to the station and booked accordingly, my handgun was taken back to my wife because as my wife told me my handgun was ok because it was stored unloaded but I ha to register it which it already was I have the documentation that shows it being registered. The next day the DA did not want to pursue charges because there was no problem with any of my weapons. Now they will not return my weapons because they are still swearing that they are in an illegal formation because of th California restrictions so after almost a year they still have my rifles and they are sti not wanting to return them. All because of the seargant who felt foolish for doing something stupid (which is a whole new story).
    So my point being that there negative LEO's out there.

    I think your tinfoil hat is on too tight. If you think you can do a better job then law enforcement maybe you should apply.

    I think that is his intent, if so good for him.

    Is this true?

    I have a feeling there is a lot of typing before thinking...I was about to ask that same exact question on another thread but decided the person I was referring too would just keep calling everyone names. No sense in fueling the fire.

    *EDIT: After recent posts, I realized I spoke to soon. Edited appropriately*
