“...who ignore all of the acts of bravery and self sacrifice of good Cops as if they don’t happen or never existed.”
No offense intended, FRiend, but isn’t that what they get paid to do? Serve and protect the public? Not beat the living shiite out us.
Furthermore, I’m tired of hearing LEO’s complain about how tough and dangerous their job is. Hell, nobody forced them to become cops. Yet they demand more money and benefits every year “because their job is so dangerous and demanding.” PULLLEEEAAASSSEE!
FYI...I’m not an electrician, but their job is more dangerous than an LEO’s. Do you have any idea how many journeymen electricians die every year in the while doing their job? I’m not going to give you the answer; but it is readily available. Look it up. It’s far more than all LEO’s and Firefighters that die or are injured, combined nation-wide. Yet we don’t give them outrageous pay and benefits, nor do we allow them to beat the crap out of, shoot, tase and kill people with impunity.
If any LEO doesn’t like his/her job, the pay and the risks involved with it, then they should pick another profession, and quit bitchin’. The world needs dishwashers and garbage collectors, too.
You are pretty dumb. Soldiers get paid so they should quit their bitchin as well, they weren’t forced to join the military. Doctors and Nurses get paid so they should quit their bitchin and get a different job as well. Somewhere in that gray matter you have called a brain maybe you could try and comprehend that I was rebutting the original posters’ broad brush. Yes, there are bad cops, terrible cops and worse. They should be fired and prosecuted, but the common sense I used to ascribe to almost all FReepers is waning so some have to rebut the ridiculous argument that our society doesn’t need police of any kind and that they are all out to get us.
