    The whole reason they're on bicycles to begin with is to establish more of a rapport with citizens and get people to see them in a capacity other than anonymous cops in patrol cars. Rather than trying to be intimidating, they should try to engage in casual conversation. That's basic human intelligence. It might be worth it if they happened to chat up the next Ted Bundy or someone who knows about an incident in the area.

  4. Self fertelizinge. Bike patrol is so guiet the drug dealers and other crime went away in a small town here. Also when reports of a large lizzard eating dogs and cats the night life stopped.

    If you can't laugh at yourself there are sure to be plenty of others to do it for you. Get a grip! I have a cop friend ahd he says his Chief has forbidden any of his officers going into any donut shop in uniform! Sheesh!

    people without a sense of humor bore the crap out of me.
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

  8. Cops are a different breed from a Police Officer, IMHO.

    Many of today's Robocops are a PITA, with no sense of humor. :( Give them some time and seasoning and the young Robocop may turn in to a Cop.

    I'll edit out the remark now, since I don't want it to be misinterpreted.
    This is how I had figured you were using the stereotype. As for me (I am white) I always heard both the Black or poor people's food (I grew up poor) was watermelon--in fact I ate a 1/4 of one myself the other night.

    Now to get back on track---ever since Clinton wanted to boost the amount of cops in the nation by about 100,000 we have seen more and more the over aggressive, macho, I am better than you attitude in police nation wide. Most police are still decent law abiding citizens who happen to be police, it is just that the incidence of psychologically challenged, ignorant, machismo bent I am better than you police has risen substantially with this huge and unnecessary increase of police presence nationwide. Too many people are slipping through the cracks of the system and being hired as officers who do not have the mental capacity or maturity to perform the job.

    In the instance indicated in the first comment, had it been me, I would have made a joke back, perhaps along the lines of, "Well, at least you're not commenting on the biker shorts!"
