this is not aimed at anyone directly on this thread, but there are a great many people in the world who like to paint LEO's with a very broad, negative brush. I've known may people personally who feel this way and in each and every case it is either because the person who hates the LEO's is very insecure/jealous of the position of power held by the LEO's or has been involved in a negative situation with LEO's that could have been avoided if the person in question had not been acting like a total ass-hat.

People who grew up with some guys that eventually became cops. Knowing what a bunch of delinquent jacka$$es they were, these people then start to wonder if all cops are like these jerks.
